ANKARA - The downing of a warplane violating Turkish air space was not an action against any specific country but a move to defend Turkey's sovereign territory within the rules of engagement, a senior official told Reuters on Tuesday.

Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian-made warplane near the Syrian border after repeated warnings over air space violations, but Moscow said it could prove the jet had not left Syrian air space.
