Turkish military shoots down Syrian warplane

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has confirmed that the country’s air force shot down a Syrian aircraft for violating Turkish airspace, an action that Syria denounced as “unprecedented and unjustifiable”.

The incident happened on Sunday, with the plane crashing near the Syrian town of Kasab on the Turkish border after it was targeted by F-16s.
