ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey's military says a Syrian missile system "harassed" a Turkish fighter jet for more than four minutes by locking radar onto it.
Monday's military's announcement said the incident happened Sunday, the same day that Turkish fighter jets shot down a Syrian warplane for violating Turkey's airspace. Tensions have since escalated between the neighboring countries.
It was not immediately clear whether the radar-lock happened before or after the plane was shot down.
The military said the Turkish F-16 jet was on a routine patrol of the Turkish-Syrian border when it was harassed by SA-5 missile system.
