Armenia says Turkey shot down its jet, pilot killed

An Armenian Russian-made Su-25 fighter jet was shot down on Tuesday by a Turkish American-made F-16, the Armenian Ministry of Defense's spokesman Artsrun Hovhannisyan confirmed.

Hovhannisyan went on to blame Turkey for a "direct act of aggression against Armenia." He also noted an Armenian pilot was killed in the incident.

Earlier, Ankara announced it would help Azerbaijan in its conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh with Armenia. Meanwhile, Russia commented that any foreign interference in the conflict which had been frozen until Sunday would only worsen the situation.
