Turkey Shoots Down Russian Warplane [VIDEO]

Turkish F-16 fighter jets shot a Russian SU-24 warplane out of the sky Tuesday after it ignored warnings for violating the country’s airspace near the Syrian border. The plane reportedly crashed in the area known by Turks as β€œTurkmen Mountain” in northern Syria near the border. Turkey had not warned the coalition that it was about to take down a plane. β€œThey just did it,” the official said. β€œWe need to make sure this doesn’t become something worse,” according to private broadcaster Haberturk TV.
