Russian aircraft downed on Turkish border

According to the Turkish TV Channel Haberturk, a Russian military aircraft has been downed not far from the Turkish border in the province of Latakia.
Two pilots are reported to have successfully catapulted, while the Su-24 ignited in the air and crashed in the mountains.
The Turkish journalists note that the Russian aircraft was downed by the Turkish F-16.
The reason of downing is alleged air intrusion. The pilots got warned and thus, managed to escape.
A month ago, Turkey used to down an unmanned aircraft. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu stated that the aircraft was made in Russia. He also noted then that if it were a real aircraft, it would have the same destiny.
