The Syrian military has said it shot down a Turkish plane "flying in airspace over Syrian waters", according to state-run news agency Sana.

The F-4 Phantom disappeared over the Mediterranean, south-west of Hatay province, near the Syrian coast.

Turkey had earlier said it believed that one of its F-4 fighter jets had been shot down by Syrian forces.

A search for the two crew members is under way involving Turkish and Syrian coast guard ships.

7. Not everything is a conspiracy

This is similar to the Libyan deal. All of a sudden people talk like they know "the truth", that it was all staged. People watch too much RT.

5. I'd expect the regional ME war to begin very soon.

This incident, failure of nuke talks with Iran and Israel itching to bomb them, Saudis funding Syrian free army, defection to Jordan by Syrian pilot. The powderkeg is about ready to blow.

Regional ME war by the end of the year and WW3 by 2013 or 2014.
