Press conference of Dr.Jihad Makdisi, Turkish military jet clearly violated Syria's sovereignty.

The aircraft was hit by air defense artillery, not a surface-to-air missile, and this weapon's maximum range is just 2.5 kilometers, he said in a statement aired on Syrian TV. Syrian foreign ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi says Turkish jet entering Syrian airspace was a clear breach of sovereignty The downing of a Turkish plane by Syria was an act of self-defense against a violation of its sovereignty, the Syrian foreign ministry has said. Damascus insists it was within its right to open fire on unidentified aircraft violating its airspace. The statement by the Syrian foreign ministry spokesman Jihad Magdissi comes a day after Ankara accused Damascus of violating international law in last Friday's incident. Magdissi said the Turkish claim that their military jet was shot down in international air space after leaving Syrian territory was false. The aircraft was hit by air defense artillery, not a surface-to-air missile, and this weapon's maximum range is just 2.5 kilometers, he said in a statement aired on Syrian TV. He added Syria did its best to mitigate the consequences of the incident by promptly contacting their Turkish counterparts and offering all due assistance in the search and rescue operations. This was done despite the fact that relations between the two countries have deteriorated over the past 15 months, he stressed.
