Syria's missile systems 'harassed' Turkish fighter jets on Thursday, the Turkish General Staff announced in a statement

The incident happened while Turkish F-16 jets were performing routine Combat Air Patrol on the Turkey-Syria border, the statement, published on the General Staff's website, said.

The border tension between Turkey and Syria has escalated since March 23 when Turkey shot down a Syrian jet for violating its airspace.

The two countries share more than 800 km of border.
