US says its forces not involved in shoot-down of Russian jet

The US military was not involved in the Turkish downing of a Russian fighter jet along the Syrian border Tuesday, a US defense official said. “Our Turkish allies informed us that their military aircraft shot down a Russian military aircraft near the Syrian border after it violated Turkish airspace on Tuesday,” the defense official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The United States has a strong presence in Turkey and regularly flies warplanes out of the air base in Incirlik as it conducts bombing runs against Islamic State targets in Syria and Iraq.
