This time, a Russian jet was reportedly shot down by Turkish forces after it flew into Turkish airspace, according to yet to be confirmed reports going round on social media.

Eyewitnesses saw a large explosion in Huraytan, northern Syria as three fighter jets hovered, according to online reports.
The Syrian war, spanning into several years has created hostilities in the region. It has also produced hundreds of thousands refugees into Europe.
