Turkish Armed Forces
A number of Greeks took to social media following Turkey’s downing of the Su-24 Russian jet, pondering hypothetical questions as to what would happen if Greece had shot down a Turkish plane for doing just what the Russian jet had done. After all, the Turkish air force isn’t a stickler for detail when it comes to violating Greek airspace.
The Russian Su-24 plane downed by Turkish F-16s on the morning of Nov. 24 near the Syrian border was the first Russian (or Soviet) war plane hit and downed by a NATO country since the organization was founded in 1949, after World War II.
The Supreme Military Council (YA?) will convene on Nov. 26, chaired by Prime Minister Ahmet Davuto?lu.
Members of the council including Chief of General Staff Gen. Hulusi Akar, the defense minister, force commanders, army commanders, the gendarmerie forces commander, navy commanders, and four star generals, will participate at the top defense meeting, which is held twice a year.
