Armenia claimed one of its aircraft was shot down by a Turkish fighter jet, as the conflict in the disputed zone of Nagorno-Karabakh continues. Armenian Foreign Ministry reported that as quoted by BBC.

"The pilot of Soviet-made Su-25 aircraft deceased due to Turkish F-16 entering Armenia's air space", diplomats said. 

Azerbaijan repeatedly stated its Air Force did not employ F-16 fighters. On the other hand, Turkey, which has been providing support to Azerbaijan within this conflict actually uses these planes. However, Ankara denies charges by Armenia.

Over three days into the conflict, about 100 people deceased, including civilians.

Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan; however, since the Nagorno-Karabakh war of 1988-1994, it is governed by ethnic Armenians. Both countries blame each other for fueling the conflict.
