Turkey shoots down two Syrian government war planes in retaliation over airstrikes

Correspondent

Turkey has said it has destroyed multiple Syrian government targets in recent days, including downing two war planes today.

The operation – dubbed “Spring Shield” – was launched in retaliation for airstrikes which killed dozens of Turkish soldiers.

And at Turkey’s border with EU countries, Greek police have fired tear gas at the thousands of refugees and migrants who have gathered in an attempt to cross.
