Turkish  military  targeted  the  plane  in  the  volatile  Hatay  Province  
24.11.15  (LONDON)-­‐  Turkey  has  reportedly  shot  down  a  Russian  military  
aircraft  on  the  country’s  southern  border  in  Hatay  province.  Turkish  F-­‐
16s  shot  down  the  SU  24  after  warning  the  two  pilots  they  were  violating  
Turkish   airspace.   At   least   one   of   the   pilots   has   been   confirmed   dead   by  
Syrian  rebels  in  Latakia  province,  where  the  jet  crashed.    
The  crash  occurred  in  the  Turkomen  Mountains  in  the  Bayirbucak  region  
of   Latakia   Province,   which   has   been   targeted   by   a   Syrian   government  
offensive  backed  by  Hezbollah  and  Iranian  soldiers  under  the  cover  of  
Russian  airstrikes.  Islamic  State  militants  have  not  established  a  presence  
in  the  region.  The  local  Turkomen  fighters  have  close  connections  with  
Following   an   emergency   meeting   of   NATO   ambassadors   in   Brussels   to  
address  the  incident,  statements  issued  by  the  NATO  Secretary  General  
emphasize  diplomacy  and  de-­‐escalation  to  address  the  situation.    
Moscow   began   launching   airstrikes   against   the   Syrian   rebels   in  
September  of  this  year  and  has  faced  repeated  warnings  from  Turkish  
authorities.   A   Russian   drone   was   shot   down   after   violating   Turkish  
airspace  last  month.  This  is  the  first  Russian  aircraft  to  crash  in  Syria  since  
the  start  of  the  airstrikes.    
Turkey,   a   NATO   member,   has   consistently   resisted   pressure   to   contribute   to   the   international   campaign   against   Islamic   State  
militants,  insisting  that  an  international  collation  must  also  target  the  regime  of  Bashar  al-­‐Assad.  Russian  airstrikes  against  the  
Syrian  opposition  aim  to  reinforce  the  Assad  regime,  setting  the  foreign  policies  of  the  two  countries  at  odds.
