WW3 RISING: Turkey scrambles TWELVE F-16 fighter jets showing Russia its military POWER

TURKEY scrambled six pairs of F-16 fighter jets last night in a fresh show of military might.

They took off from Eskisehir Air Base at around 7:30pm local time (4:30pm UK time) with "loud blasts", a Turkish source said.

It comes just a day after Russia's ambassador was shot dead in the Turkish capital Ankara, ramping up tensions between the two countries.

Off-duty police officer Mevlut Mert Altintas gunned down Andrei Karlov in the brutal attack at an art gallery yesterday afternoon.

Moscow responded with fury, with a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry saying it regarded the assassination as an "act of terrorism".

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan is understood to have made a panicked phone call to Vladimir Putin in the wake of the murder.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which is said to have been motivated by Russia's intervention in war-torn Syria.

The killer, who was smartly dressed in a suit and tie and fired multiple shots, shouted in Turkish: "Don't forget Aleppo! Don't forget Syria!"

He also shouted "Allahu akbar," the Arabic phrase for "God is great".

After shooting the ambassador, the gunman climbed to the second floor of the same building and was killed by police after a 15-minute shoot-out.
