Syrian military jet shot down by Turkish F-16

A Syrian fighter jet was shot down at the border with Turkey, over the border crossing of Kasab, between the Turkish Hatay and Latakia, where Syrian armed forces are fighting with rebels for control over the crossing.

Ankara reports that the aircraft violated Turkish airspace, while a Syrian military source speaking on state television described this as “an act of blatant aggression” arguing that the jet was shot down over Syrian territory, while taking part in an operation against the rebels.
