Tue Nov 24, 2015 18:44:19

Syria’s Information Minister says the shooting down of a Russian warplane is a “new crime” that will be added to the record of insurgent groups and the countries that finance and arm them, Al-Alam News Network reports.

 

Omran al-Zoubi specified Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar - countries that have been among the strongest backers of insurgent groups trying to remove President Bashar Assad from power.

Turkey shot down a Russian warplane Tuesday, accusing it of violating Turkish airspace. Moscow says the plane was inside Syria when it was shot down.
