REPORT: A Russian jet has been shot down by Turkey on the Syrian border
According to Reuters, the Turkish military is claiming that it shot down a jet after it violated the country's airspace and the pilot did not respond to warnings.
Sputnik News, a Russian state-owned media service, has confirmed that the jet belonged to the military. It is a Su-24 model, and the report says it was shot from the ground. The Russian defence ministry also reportedly says that the jet was in Syrian airspace.
Russian military forces are working in support of President Bashar Al-Assad, and their presence has grown considerably since September, when airstrikes began.
Here, from Haaretz, is a video reportedly showing the jet crash:
