Syrian vessels have joined a search operation, which was launched immediately after the Turkish military lost radar and radio contact with the jet. The planes took off from Erhac Airport in the eastern province of Malatya at 10 a.m. local time. Unconfirmed reports suggest that Syrian defense forces had been shooting at two foreign planes. “Witnesses spotted two jets flying in from Turkish territory. One of the planes went down in Syria’s territorial waters, while the other one made off,” says Ihab Sultan, a local correspondent in Syria, told RT.
A similar incident happened on Thursday when a Syrian pilot and his fighter jet defected to Jordan. The plane made an emergency landing just across the border, and the pilot appealed for political asylum.
