Turkey Grounds Syrian Plane
The Moscow-Damascus passenger jet grounded by Turkey carried technical elements for Syrian air defense radars, which did not require special reporting. Earlier this week, Turkish F-16 fighter jets forced down the Syrian Air Airbus A320 some three hours after it had taken off from Moscow's Vnukovo international airport.
