Turkish warplanes shoot down 'unidentified aircraft'

  • Turkey says its warplanes shot down an unidentified aircraft which intruded into its airspace near the border with Syria on Friday. Media reports quoted officials as saying the aircraft was a drone. No further details were available. The Turkish military said the unknown aircraft detected near the border had been warned three times before it was shot down "in accordance with rules of engagement". Last week, it was reported Turkish forces shot down a Russian jet after it flew into the country's airspace. (Source: IANS)
