Syrian President Bashar Assad said Tuesday that he regrets the shooting down of a Turkish fighter jet in late June, adding that he will not allow tensions with Ankara to escalate into war.

In an interview with the Turkish newspaper Cumhuriyet, Assad stressed that the downed F-4 was flying in a path allegedly used by the Israeli Air Force in the past.

“We learned that (the jet) belonged to Turkey only after shooting it down… The plane was using a corridor which Israeli planes have used three times before.
