    Turkey shoots down unidentified drone

    Oct.16, Ankara: Turkish warplanes shot down an unidentified drone in Turkish air space near Syria on Friday.
    A U.S. official said that Washington believed it was of Russian origin.

    A military statement said that the plane was shot down by Turkish planes patrolling the border in line with the rules of engagement.

    The downing of the drone highlights the risks to NATO member Turkey as Syrian, Russian and U.S. coalition aircraft fly combat missions so close to its borders, local media reported.
