Syria downed Turkish jet without warning

03 July 2012 23:08 (Last updated 03 July 2012 23:13)

Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, Victoria Nuland described Syria's downing a Turkish military jet as a flagrant act.


Asked about her views after the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that they learned the downed jet belonged to Turkey only after the incident, Nuland replied that she would not make any comment on such a statement.

I will repeat what we have said earlier. They (the Syrians) downed the Turkish military jet without making a warning and this was a flagrant act, Nuland stressed.
