Russia’s President Vladimir Putin called the downing of an Su-24 fighter jet in Syria a stab in the back at a meeting with the King of Jordan Abdullah II in Sochi, Sputnik News reports.

Vladimir Putin said that Russian pilots were in no way a threat to Turkey. “This is an obvious fact.”

The attack on Russia’s Su-24 jet is a “stab in the back”, the president said.

Russia’s president stated that the incident with Su-24 in Syria is beyond regular war against terrorism.

“Our jet fell six kilometers away from the border, within Syrian arispace.”

Russian Su-24 jet was downed with air-to-air missiles from the Turkish F-16 plane, the Russian President said.
