Turkey shoots down Russian jet near its border with Syria (Plus Video)
The government of Turkey has downed a Russian warplane that was operating in strikes against ISIS near its border with Syria.
BBC Reported that Russia’s Interfax news agency cited the Russian defence ministry as saying that a Su-24 had crashed in northern Syria, and that its two pilots had ejected.
Turkish military officials said Turkish F-16s had shot down the plane after repeatedly warning its pilots that they were violating Turkish airspace.
Video footage showed the plane crashing into mountains in Latakia province.
