Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
A letter sent by Turkey to the UN claimed that 10 warnings were issued in a space of 5 minutes. However, the surviving pilot who was rescued by the Syrian Army reveals that no warnings were given before they were fired upon.
What makes Turkey’s claims even more unreliable is that the letter states they didn’t know the nationality of the SU-24.
Furthermore, A video released by the Russian MoD shows that the SU-24 was shot down while in Syrian airspace.

The Syrian foreign minister believes that members of the Turkish government were incensed by Russia’s ongoing anti-ISIS campaign and therefore acted aggressively to retaliate.
“The effort to destroy the forces of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and other terrorist groups offended Turkey. That is why they aggressively violated Syria’s sovereignty and attacked the Su-24 in its airspace,” Muallem said.
Lt Gen McInerney:
Former Vice Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney, told Fox News: “This airplane was not making any maneuvers to attack the territory…it was probably pressing the limits, that’s fair. But you don’t shoot ’em down just because of that.”
“I don’t really trust President Erdogan in what he is doing,” he added. “I think it was an overly aggressive maneuver and at NORAD [North American Aerospace Defense] command region we would not use this kind of rules of engagement. That had to be preplanned.”
