Turkey downs «unidentified aircraft» on Syria border: BBC


Turkey says its warplanes have shot down an unidentified aircraft which intruded into its airspace near the border with Syria, according to the BBC News.

Media reports quote officials as saying the aircraft was a drone. There are no further details so far, BBC News reported.

The Turkish military said the unknown aircraft detected near the border had been warned three times before it was shot down "in accordance with rules of engagement."

Earlier this month Turkey accused Russian jets — which have recently joined the air battle against Syrian rebel group — of violating its airspace.
