Jihadists down regime plane, detain pilot in northwest SyriaJihadists Wednesday downed a regime plane flying over northwest Syria as it took part in a deadly campaign that has seen loyalists inch forward against their opponents, a monitor said. An AFP correspondent saw smoke rising in the south of Idlib province above the debris of the plane, with its wing bearing the Syrian flag. After eight years of civil war in Syria, the Idlib region — controlled by Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate — is the last major stronghold of opposition to President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
