Turkey has scrambled six F-16 fighter jets near its border with Syria after Syrian helicopters came close to the border.

Six jets were sent to the area in response to three such incidents on Saturday, the statement said, adding that there was no violation of Turkish airspace.

Last month, Syrian forces shot down a Turkish jet in the border area.
