Syrian government plane downed in Idlib - Turkey's Anadolu agency

ISTANBUL, March 1 (Reuters) - A Syrian government plane was downed in the northwestern Idlib province, Turkey's state-owned Anadolu Agency said on Sunday.

Turkish forces have been hitting Syrian government targets in Idlib in the recent weeks. In February, a total of 55 Turkish soldiers were killed in Syrian government attacks, including air strikes, in Idlib.

The government forces' air strikes are part of a major assault to capture the province, part of the last remaining territory held by rebels backed by Turkey. (Reporting by Ali Kucukgocmen; Editing by Mark Potter)
