Report: Russian Jet Shot Down by Turkish Forces
Daily Mail Reported: There are many unconfirmed reports but a few eyewitnesses saw a large explosion in Huraytan, northern Syria, while three fighter jets were hovering above.
One journalist tweeted that three Turkish planes were responding to “mysterious” lock-ons from Mig-29 jets, which are used by Putin’s forces.
It comes amid heightening tensions between Putin and the West just days after another Russian bomber violated Turkish airspace.
Turkish jets then escorted the Soviet-era aircraft back into Syrian airspace.
The incursion followed nearly a week of Russia’s devastating bombing campaign in Syria after President Vladimir Putin declared war on Islamic State (ISIS).
