Moment two Syrian jets downed over Idlib by Turkish forces

Two jet fighters belonging to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were downed by the Turkish forces in northwest Idlib province on Sunday.

Footage filmed near Khan Assubul, Idlib Governorate, shows one of the SAA jets falling from the sky in flames.

Both pilots of the aircraft can be seen landing safely using parachutes, as reported earlier by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

In recent days clashes between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish-backed militants in the Idlib countryside have intensified as the latter sought to regain control over the strategic town of Saraqib.
