Turkey Shoots Down Russian Jet

Turkish forces are said to have shot down a Russian jet after it flew into the country's airspace, according to unconfirmed reports on social media. It has been claimed by eyewitnesses that there was a large explosion in Huraytan, northern Syria, while three fighter planes were seen overhead.

Update - It has been confirmed on the BBC. NATO has called an emergency meeting. Turkey claims the Russian SU-24 violated it's airspace.


  1. I thought it was related to Thanksgiving at first "Turkey shoot...." (Sorry, not enough coffee...)

    1. I wish it was. Russian roasted stuffed Turkey for Thanksgiving doesn't sound good at all.


Always great to hear from you :O)
