Turkish jet was downed by Iran-made weapon – report

PanARMENIAN.Net - A Turkish plane that was shot by Syria on June 22 was brought down by a weapon manufactured by Iran, Hurriyet Daily News reported citing Milliyet.

A Syrian expert in Damascus reportedly said the Turkish plane was shot down by an Iranian anti-aircraft weapon that was purchased by Syria two years ago.

The unidentified expert said the Turkish plane was flying at a low altitude to avoid Syrian radars. "Turkish personnel were unaware that Syria possessed weapons that could hit targets flying at such low altitudes."

Al-Quds al-Arabi, an Arabic newspaper was the first to report the news.
