Turkish Plane Shot Over Syrian Air Space Causes Growing Tension
Early this morning, a Turkish phantom jet was shot down over Turkish air space by a missile coming from Syria. This incident simply seems to create more tension between Syria and the rest of the world. Syria claims that all proper security precautions were taken (a signal given) prior to anti-aircraft artillery striking the plane down. Worryingly enough, Turkey condemns the act of violence as an act of belligerence towards the two "politically different" Middle Eastern countries. There will be a NATO meeting in Brussels within the next week to discuss the matter, in the meantime Turkey has withdrawn all of its diplomats from Syria claiming “their lives could be jeopardized".
