Ankara, Feb 2 : Four Turkish fighter jets were launched Friday to intercept two Syrian military helicopters which approached southern Turkey, a military statement said here Saturday.
Two Turkish F-16 fighter jets scrambled Friday to intercept a Syrian MI-17 military helicopter which approached the Yayladagi village of Turkey's Hatay province, Xinhua quoted the general staff of the Turkish Armed Forces as saying in a statement.
