Turkey says Syrian government warplane shot down

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - The Turkish Defence Ministry said on Tuesday that a warplane of the Syrian government forces had been shot down in the course of a Turkish-led military offensive launched in northwest Syria to push back the forces of President Bashar al-Assad.

The ministry described the downed jet as an L-39 warplane. The Syrian state news agency SANA separately reported that a Syrian warplane had been targeted by Turkish forces.
