Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag has said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's comments over the downing of a Turkish jet last month were trying to connect with public opinion.
He also refuted suggestions that the aircraft which shot down a Turkish plane was flying in air space often used by Israel.
It is nothing new that Israel uses these corridors, they constantly use them," he told Turkish state television. If the Syrian administration says it shot it, thinking it was an Israeli plane, then they would have shot many Israeli planes down by now.
