AA PhotoA Russian battleship passed through the Dardanelles en route to the Mediterranean, minutes after Turkish F-16s shot down a Russian fighter jet due to an airspace violation.
A Russian warship named “Yamal” entered the Dardanelles Strait off northwestern Turkey at 10 a.m. on Nov. 24, shortly after Turkish jets shot down a Russian SU-24 near the Syrian border for violating Turkish airspace at 9.24 a.m.
The “Yamal” had crossed the 36-mile strait by 1 p.m. and continued its route toward the Mediterranean.
