Syria plane intel came from US: report
AFP PhotoIntelligence regarding the Syrian plane carrying military equipment from Moscow to Damascus came from American sources, the Washington Post has reported.
Anonymous U.S. officials confirmed that it was American intelligence that had tipped off Turkey regarding the parts loaded on the plane.
The U.S. have been increasing "intelligence sharing and military consultations" since the Syria crisis erupted and Turkey became a prominent actor, the Washington Post's report went on to say.
Turkey forced a plane en route to Damascus to land in Ankara on Oct. 10, confiscating what it said was military equipment on board. Russia said the plane was carrying spare radar parts, while Syria accused Turkey of piracy.
