A report by the Turkish Military Prosecutor's Office has determined that a Syrian missile shot down a Turkish warplane in international air space in June, Turkish daily newspaper Hürriyet reported Thursday.

Investigators discovered traces of material found in missiles on the Israeli-upgraded Turkish fighter jet, despite finding no indication the missiles hit the warplane, according to the report.

The report also debunks Syrian claims that the plane was shot down within Syrian air space with anti-aircraft guns, saying there was no damage found on the plane that could have been caused by anti-aircraft fire.
