ANKARA – Syria’s missile systems "harassed" Turkish fighter jets on Sunday, according to Turkey's top military office.

Missile systems targeted the Turkish jets and locked onto them for 10 seconds as they flew along the border, according to a statement published on the General Staff's website.

Turkish F-16 jets were performing routine combat air patrol on the Turkey-Syria border over Hatay, southern Turkey's border city to Syria, when the incident happened.
