imgTurkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkish fighter jets had shot down a Syrian warplane which had violated its airspace on Sunday.

Addressing his supporters at a rally on Sunday, Erdogan congratulated his air force on its actions on Sunday and vowed a harsh response to any violation of Turkey’s airspace.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based NGO,  claimed that the warplane had been shot down while bombing rebels fighting to seize control of a border post in the northwestern part of Syria.

The NGO said the plane came down on the Syrian side of the border.
