Incident happened near border with Syria.
A Turkish F-16 shot down a Russian Su-24 fighter bomber near the border with Syria on Tuesday after Turkish military officials said the airplane was repeatedly warned that it was violating Turkey’s airspace.
Russian President Vladimir Putin reacted angrily to the incident, describing the shoot down as a “stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorists.”
The pilots ejected before the jet crashed in Syria, but rebels in the area told media outlets that at least one was dead.
