World War III? Turkey Shoots Down Russian Jet!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uf8xsqNmfFc

Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border on Tuesday after repeated warnings over air space violations, but Moscow said it could prove the jet had not left Syrian air space.

It was the first time a NATO member's armed forces have downed a Russian or Soviet military aircraft since the 1950s and Russian and Turkish assets fell on fears of an escalation between the former Cold War enemies.

The Turkish military said the aircraft had been warned 10 times in the space of five minutes about violating Turkish airspace. Officials said a second plane had also approached the border and been warned.

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.

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.

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.

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! cheesy

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.

Neither our pilots nor our jet threatened the territory of Turkey. This is obvious. They are fighting terrorists in the northern areas around Latakia, where militants are located, mainly people who originated in Russia, and they were pursuing their direct duty, to make sure these people do not return to Russia. These are people who are clearly international terrorists.

Taking into account that we signed an agreement on deconflicting with the US, and as we know Turkey was among the ones that has joined the US coalition. Since Isis has such huge resources of hundreds of millions and billions of dollars coming from illicit oil sales, and they are protected by the armed forces of other states, then it’s clear why they are so brazen, why they are killing people, why they are carrying out terrorist attacks throughout the world including in the heart of Europe.

We will analyse everything, and today’s tragic event will have significant consequences, including for Russia-Turkish relations. We have always treated Turkey as a friendly state. I don’t know who was interested in what happened today, certainly not us. And instead of immediately getting in contact with us, as far as we know, the Turkish side immediately turned to their partners from Nato to discuss this incident, as if we shot down their plane and not they ours.

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.

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

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".

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.
