Turkey Says Syrian Missile Brought Down Turkish Warplane

A Syrian missile downed a Turkish military jet in June after it exploded near the aircraft and the pilots lost control, army prosecutors said according to the Anatolia news agency.

The incident caused the plane to crash and occurred in international airspace, the prosecutors said, according to the state-run agency.

The missile exploded in the rear and to the left of the jet, creating a “blast effect,” Anatolia said. The pilots subsequently lost control of the plane which crashed into Syrian waters, it said.

A forensic examination also found traces of explosive on the wreckage of the plane, Anatolia said.

Syria has previously said the plane entered its airspace and was shot down by an anti-aircraft gun.
