13. Just a cock-up. So far...

...The NTV private news channel reported that the plane had crashed in Syrian territorial waters, but that there had been no violation of the Syrian border, citing unnamed military sources.

According to information the Daily News gathered from official sources, the Turkish military launched a broad search and rescue operation to find the plane and the two pilots who ejected themselves and fell in the water.

Sources said Syria had dispatched three guard boats to contribute to Turkish efforts, as the search was taking place in Syrian territorial waters. The first news that Syria shot the Turkish jet down came from local sources in Lebanon and Syria. Erdoğan said alongside with Turkey’s four guard boats Syria joined efforts with own vessels.

A local witness has told RT Arabic that the plane crashed on Syrian territory and that the two pilots were captured.

The craft was shot down as the Syrian air defense opened fire, according to Lebanon-based pan-Arab Al-Mayadeen TV. These reports are yet to be confirmed...

Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will arrange an extraordinary security meeting and meet Interior Minister İdris Naim Şahin, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz, head of the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) and Chief of General Staff Necdet Özel following this afternoon’s crash of a Turkish war plane over Syrian waters.

The meeting will be focused on the plane crash, as well as the recent terrorist attacks in Turkey.
