Smoke billows from the spot where the Su-24 warplane crashed in HatayTurkey’s military said Wednesday it did not know the warplane it downed on the Syrian border was Russian and that it was ready for “all kinds of cooperation” with the Russian military authorities following the incident. In a statement issued after tension surged between Ankara and Moscow and Turkey’s NATO allies appealed for calm, the Turkish armed forces also said they had made significant efforts to find and rescue the pilots after the jet was shot down.
