(Israel National News) A Syrian Airbus A320 flying from Moscow to Damascus was intercepted by Turkish F-16 jets as it entered Turkish airspace and escorted to the capital’s Esenboga Airport, Turkey’s TRT television said Wednesday.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that the plane was forced to land because of information that it may be carrying “certain equipment in breach of civil aviation rules”.
