Turkey Shoots Down Drone

Turkish jets on Friday shot down an unidentified drone that had violated Turkey’s airspace at the border with Syria, the military said.

The drone was shot down after it ignored three warnings for it to leave, the military said, adding that it was not immediately known which country the aircraft belonged to. It crashed inside Turkish territory.

Turkey earlier this month had complained about Russian warplanes violating its airspace, intrusions that also drew strong condemnation from Turkey’s NATO allies.

The United States, Russia and the Syrian government all operate drones in the region.
