Minutes later, the Turkish Lira sank like a rock while risk assets across Europe tumbled when the Turkish presidency confirmed that, as many had expected, the jet was a Russian, allegedly a Su-24. The Su-24 jet was warned after violating Turkish airspace and was then downed in line with Turkey’s rules of engagement, Anadolu says, citing officials at the presidency.
To be sure, Turkey claims it tried to warn the plane repeatedly:
RUSSIAN JET IGNORED REPEATED WARNINGS, TURKISH PRESIDENCY SAYS
However, while moments ago the Russian defense ministry confirmed that the shot down plane was indeed one of its own in what will be deemed a clear act of aggression by a NATO-member country against Russia, the Russian defense ministry said it could prove the aircraft was over Syria for the entire flight.
The ministry added that the pilots ejected, according to preliminary info, and that Russia trying to determine their fates, Interfax reports. Interfax also adds that the plane was probably downed by fire from ground, and that it had been flying at flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters.
Meanwhile, Turkish media reported that either one or both of the pilots may have been captured by Turkmen forces located in the region.
TURKMEN FORCES CAPTURE 2 PILOTS OF DOWNED RUSSIAN JET: AHABER
This huge escalation in the Syrian proxy war, one where a NATO country has openly attacked a non-NATO country (if Russia is correct and it did not violate Turkish airspace), comes after Turkey called this week for a U.N. Security Council meeting to discuss attacks on Turkmens in neighboring Syria, and last week Ankara summoned the Russian ambassador to protest the bombing of their villages.
Ankara has traditionally expressed solidarity with Syrian Turkmens, who are Syrians of Turkish descent.

Turkish F-16 fighter jets shot down the plane after it violated Turkish air space close to the Syrian border and ignored warnings, a Turkish military official told Reuters.
There was some confusion over where the plane crashed after the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitoring group, said the warplane crashed in a mountainous area in the northern countryside of Latakia province in Syria while there were reports it crashed in Hatay, southern Turkey.
The Turkish military said the plane was warned 10 times in five minutes but Turkish officials would not say who the plane belonged to.
The Russian defence ministry said the plane was not shot down by Turkey but came under an artillery attack from the ground and denied that it violated Turkish airspace.
Moscow confirmed that the pilots had parachuted but had no further contact with them.

Asad insistence in remaining in power may bring havoc to the world, his people are dying in hundreds of thousand but he doesn't care. As a Moslem he would prefer to die than to step down and allow peace to rein.

why would he step down, who instigated the crisis in his country, was it not the west because the dint want him. Assad has always said he would step down if Syrians don't need him again and not some rag tag rebels and terrorist sponsored by America and its allies.

This has nothing to do with World war III; you guys should stop promoting irrelevances. Sukhoi-24 was shot down by American supplied F-16 and so? With what I have been reading on nairaland, it seems everybody wants to be in his bedroom or viewing center and be watching 3rd world war on plasma t.v

Should Russia get all clear that the plane did not violate Turkish airspace it will revenge
That is when you will know how divided NATO is. For one I know the UK parliament will not vote in support of a war instigated solely by Turkey.
If Russia truly violated Turkish airspace. There will be protest but nothing more.

End Time Aggression and escalation.
|Re: Turkey Shoots Down Russian Jet Near Syrian Border by mazeltov(m): 11:49am On Nov 24, 2015|
belabela:which protest? Lolzz.
Please be guided accordingly, Turkey is not like Biafra here in Nigeria oo or probably you are thinking Turkey is like ISIS that Russia can just bomb anytime.
Every nation has the right to protect its airspace. Nigeria has the right to shot down any american Jet that violates our airspace. Contrary to your opinion, Even Russia wouldn't make any mistake of attacking Turkey just because they think that Nato is divided - An attack on Turkey is an attack on United state and every Nato country which violated article 5 of 1949 Nato treaty.

What would Russia do? Nuke Turkey? Turkey is a NATO member, An attack on them would draw all the other NATO members. Russia would be careful with their approach, this isn't the time to escalate matter. Putin should just focus on ISIS and Syria, thats more important. The West are just trying to draw away his attention, Russia shouldn't take the bait. Turkey is in a delicate position now, A civil war could erupt any time. They would regret this action in time, Russia would greatly fund and armed any rebel group that may rise against Erdogan and Turkey(The Kurds comes to mind). It would be a proxy war. And Turkey should kiss goodbye to ever violating Syria airspace again, They are use to that. Even if Turkey violate Syria airspace by an inch, Kaboom!
Well judging from this Putin speech it seems this would escalate. Putin decides to take the bait, Turkey is in for real shît!
This event is beyond the normal framework of fighting against terrorism. Of course our military is doing heroic work against terrorism... But the loss today is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorists. I can’t describe it in any other way. Our aircraft was downed over the territory of Syria, using air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16. It fell on the Syrian territory 4km from Turkey.
Such insult! They down a Russian jet and turn to NATO to discuss the incident? Screw proxy war and NATO, Russia should completely obliterate that terrorist country! Damn the consequences.

How can a plane allegedly "violating" Turkish airspace crash in Syria?
These folks just want a big war. The Russians will send a missile to Turkey soon.

I see some boko bastards are rejoicing over this....
Well, this has already backfired on the Turks as their currency took a major hit.
I know Erdogan has a hard on for ISIS and is having wet dreams of becoming the new Sultan, but what he doesn't know is that Russia fights dirty.
The illegal oil trade between Turkey and the Islamic State is why Turkey of all people dared to shoot a Russian jet. And I also know for a fact that the Turkish president is a confirmed boko.
Putin will react viciously and when he does I don't want to hear any boko complain

I knew the whole Paris false flag was basically a plan by NATO to move assets to the mediterranean.
Now that they have got a lot of assets there - they gave Turkey the green light to instigate shiit.
These folks are crazy, I tell ya.

Russia will surely retaliate sooner or later because turkey cannot continue to hide behind NATO Article because it states " A war against one is a war against all".
Let wait & see if turkey can handle what's coming.
|Re: Turkey Shoots Down Russian Jet Near Syrian Border by Nobody: 12:09pm On Nov 24, 2015|
What is turkey?
The last major conflict they were engaged in was with minority Armenians and Greek Cypriots who they massacred.
Turkey is being led by a delusional jihadist who believes in the iman mahdi coming in Syria
Erdogan Is misguided in Islamic apocalypse and if he wants it then I don't see why Russia will deny him one.
Finally, I don't want to see boko ediots like you lament human rights when Putin begins to rain molten steel over Instabul.
