ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan will hold a second security meeting with senior officials on Saturday over a Turkish jet shot down by Syria a day earlier, Turkish media reported.

The meeting will be Erdogan's second security meeting over the incident in less than 24 hours and follows a separate meeting between Turkey's foreign minister and senior military commanders.

Turkey would be wise to exercise restrain to Syria’s shooting down its wondering plane.  Nothing Turkey does now will help the situation at hand — either for the Syrian  people or the international community. 
Retaliation has its place, and Turkey will have plenty of opportunity to assert itself. Now is not the time.
