A Syrian military plane crashed in Turkey on Saturday near the country’s border with Syria.
The plane crashed in the Turkish Hatay province. The plane’s cockpit was reportedly empty. According to the source, a contact was lost with a military aircraft on a reconnaissance mission near the Turkish border. The Syrian rebel group Ahrar al Sham told that it had shot down a government plane “as it was overflying Idlib province (in northwestern Syria) and carrying out air strikes.”
