There was an important reason we had not covered the incident in Egypt with saw the death of 215 Russian citizens and two days later another Commercial flight 15/25 killed - we had noted the situation between Turkey and Russia and those calling to shoot down the Russian plane.

Russia says downing of its jet won't deflect it from Syria mission

Downing of Russian warplane shines a light on Turkey's shadowy links to extremists

Downing of Russian warplane shines a light on Turkey's shadowy links to extremists

When Turkish F-16 fighter jets shot down a Russian warplane at the Turkish-Syrian border, it swung the spotlight back on the strategic region, long a focal point of conflict in the Syrian crisis.

It also focused attention on Turkey's relationship with the Syrian rebel factions fighting to wrest control of the country from President Bashar Assad.

The Russian Su-24 bomber was shot down last week. Turkey said it had entered its airspace while on a mission to target Syria's Turkmens, an ethnic minority with deep ancestral and linguistic ties to Turkey. The Kremlin insisted that the plane was over Syria, not Turkey.

Based in the region straddling Turkey's Hatay province and Syria's Latakia province, Turkmen rebel brigades have been among the groups seeking to overthrow Assad, a close Moscow ally. They have received training and arms from Turkish military bases near the border.
