Of course: Syria claims they thought that Turkish plane was Israeli because both use US jets

You just knew that this was going to happen, didn't you (Hat Tip: Asher G)?
Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoebi was quoted as telling Turkish news channel A Haber in a telephone interview Wednesday that his country did "not want a crisis between Turkey and Syria."

Al-Zoebi said Turkish and Israeli fighter jets were mostly US-made, which may have led the Syrian forces to mistake it for an Israeli jet.

Turkey warned Syria on Tuesday to keep its troops away from the countries' troubled border or risk an armed response, an angry reply to the downing of the Turkish reconnaissance plane last week.

Syrian news outlets quoted a military expert as saying that the anti-aircraft weapons used to down the Turkish fighter jet last weekend were made in Iran, Al-Quds al-Arabi reported Wednesday.
Unexpected? No way!

In case you were wondering, I spent six hours this afternoon running errands and then six hours this evening at a wedding (out of the city) and a Bar Mitzva.

What most people would think of as Bar Mitzva lessons (learning to read his Torah portion and Haftorah) is being done by the Bar Mitzva boy's older brother when he is home from yeshiva (rarely). I am supposed to listen to him to make sure he is actually preparing it, but I rarely get around to it. Not to worry - he's almost done.

I test the Bar Mitzva boy on his Mishna (weekly) and study Talmud with him for about two hours a day (an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening).

You should record him if you can. We had some friends whose son used one part of their family's Yemeni melody... and I was thinking later that we should have recorded it when he was visiting from Israel and practiced it with us. It was amazing. Hopefully, your Talmud lessons are teaching him to be a good non-marxist... :)
