Turkey scrambles jets after Syria copters approach

Turkey scrambled fighter jets after Syrian helicopters flew close to the border, the army said Sunday, hiking tensions following last month's downing of a Turkish plane.

Four F-16 warplanes took off from Incirlik airbase in southern Turkey after Syrian helicopters flew four miles closer to the border than is normal, the statement said.


Two more F-16 jets scrambled from a base in Batman after one helicopter approached the border in the south of Mardin province.

There were three incidents but there had been no violation of Turkish airspace, the army said.
