Turkey, responding to the downing of one of its jets by Syrian forces, says its military will respond to any future violation of its border by Syrian military elements.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that Turkish Armed Forces "will respond to all violations on the Syrian border."

He said Syrian helicopters have violated Turkish airspace five times recently, without Turkish response.

Syria insists that the Turkish plane violated its air space. But Turkey disagrees, saying that though the plane had unintentionally strayed into Syria's air space, it was inside international airspace when it was brought down on Friday.
