Syria Mistakes Turkish Plane as Israeli

4y ago


A Syrian minister is quoted as saying his country's forces may have mistaken the Turkish plane they shot down for an Israeli one. Turkish and Israeli fighter jets were mostly US-made, which may have led the Syrian forces to mistake it for an Israeli jet. Syrian news outlets quoted a military expert as saying that the anti-aircraft weapons used to down the Turkish fighter jet last weekend were made in Iran. The Turkish military deployed large forces that include tanks and other armored vehicles to the country's border with Syria on Tuesday.
