Turkish fighter jets have forced a Syrian passenger plane to land at Ankara's airport amid high tension between the two neighbours.

The plane, which was travelling from Moscow, was intercepted on intelligence that it was carrying "non-civilian cargo", Turkey's foreign minister said.

He added that Turkey was determined to stop any transfer of weapons to the Syrian government through its airspace.

It comes as Syria and Turkey continue to trade cross-border artillery fire.

The Airbus A320 airliner was carrying 35 passengers, far fewer than its 180 passenger capacity.

The aircraft was escorted by Turkish jets to the capital's Esenboga airport for security checks, and the passengers have disembarked.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told state-run television that Ankara had received information that the plane could be carrying "certain equipment in breach of civil aviation rules".

Meanwhile, the Turkish authorities have declared Syrian airspace to be unsafe and are preventing Turkish aircraft from flying over the country, the foreign ministry said.

The BBC's James Reynolds in southern Turkey says that Ankara clearly wants to show its own population and Syria that it is taking the threat posed by Syria extremely seriously.

If weapons are going to Syria, the Turkish government might worry that they will be fired back into its territory, our correspondent says.

Earlier on Wednesday, Turkey's top military commander warned Syria that Ankara would respond with greater force if Syria continued its cross-border shelling.

Five Turkish civilians were killed by Syrian mortar fire last week, prompting Turkey to fire into Syria for the first time since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began 19 months ago.

Meanwhile, the US has confirmed reports it has established a military task force in Jordan.

It is monitoring the security of Syria's chemical and biological weapons as well as helping with the aid effort.

Who are we kidding? Last week the Syrians admitted that it was the Russians who goaded them into shooting down the Turkish jet in the first place. The war was started and is being supported by Russia.

CIA backed Mossad agents did it. Rich white republicans are to blame. Bush's fault.
