Watch: Turkey downs Russian fighter jet, Putin warns of ‘serious consequences’

A Russian fighter jet has been shot down by Turkish warplanes near the latter’s border with Syria for allegedly violating its airspace, hours before French President Francois Hollande met Barack Obama seeking Russia’s inclusion in their military campaign against the ISIS.

Reacting strongly to the Turkey’s move, Russian President Vladimir Putin has called the downing of the plane a “very serious incident” and a “stab in the back from terrorists’ accomplices”.

Putin warned that the incident would have serious consequences for Russia’s relations with Turkey.

According to reports, the plane was shot down over Syrian territory in Latakia’s Yamadi village. A Turkish official said the Russian plane was warned before they brought it down for violating Turkish airspace.

A video posted by the Haberturk TV station appeared to show the jet coming down in flames.

The Russian Ministry of Defence has confirmed that its Su-24 fighter plane was shot down, while insisting that it did not stray into Turkish airspace and remained over Syria.

Another video showed two pilots parachuting out of the plane before the crash.

According to reports, two pilots ejected safely from the plane, but one of them was captured by Syrian rebels.

Meanwhile, a video has surfaced allegedly showing a Russian fighter pilot surrounded by armed militants, chanting ‘God is great’.
