Fast plane goes down - level 2
A Syrian plane was shot down by Turkish armed forces. Turkey believed that the plane was violating its airspace.
There is a video on the Internet. It shows the scene right after the crash.
The Turkish Prime Minister talked about the incident. If somebody violates his airspace, the return slap will be hard.
The pilot of the plane survived. He left the plane before it crashed. Syria called this an aggressive act.
Difficult words: armed forces (country’s military organisations), violate (do something against a law), slap (hit).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Was it a good decision to shoot down that plane?
