Syrian army confirms two of its war planes downed by Turkish jets

AMMAN, March 1 (Reuters) - The Syrian army confirmed on Sunday two of its war planes were downed by Turkish jets after they were intercepted during a combat mission in Idlib province.

Earlier, Turkey's Defence Ministry said one of its drones had been downed on Sunday and that it had shot down two Syrian planes.

Syrian state news media had previously only said that two planes had been "targeted", adding the pilots escaped in parachutes and were fine. (Reporting by Suleiman Al-Khalidi; Editing by Mark Potter)
