A Turkish jet had crashed in the predominately Kurdish city of Diyarbakir near an airport on Monday.
The pilot survived and safely ejected from the crashing jet.
The Turkish F-16 warplane had left a military air base in Diyarbakir for a training flight when it fell shortly after take-off in a village nearby, according to Turkey’s Dogan news agency.
There have been no cause for the reason at this moment.
The airport is often used to strike the communist Kurdistan Worker Party fighters who have an insurgency against the Turkish state.
