Rescue teams at scene of plane crash near Turkey-Syria border
A plane has crashed in the countryside near Turkey's border with Syria, with preliminary information suggesting the aircraft belonged to Syria, a Turkish official says.
Hatay province governor Erdal Ata told state-run Anadolu news agency that it was "likely" a military aircraft, but that there was no airspace violation and no intervention by Turkish forces, adding that it might have been a technical problem.
Rescue teams have been sent to the area.
Private Dogan news agency reported nearby villagers had called authorities reporting a crash at around 6.30pm local time Saturday. They also told authorities that the pilots had allegedly ejected before the crash.
