Syria shoots down Turkish jet
June 23, 2012
Syria has shot down a Turkish jet without warning after the jet had allegedly entered Syrian airspace when it was flying low 1km off the coast. The Turkish government has vowed “necessary action” in response. Syria has issued some apologies but face international condemnation for killing thousands of protesters and those fighting the Assad regime. What happens next may help oust Assad from power or it may even drag NATO into the conflict.
