A US warplane shot down a Syrian army jet on Sunday near village Rasafah in the southern Raqqa, with Washington claiming the jet had dropped bombs near US-backed forces and Damascus saying the plane was downed while flying a mission against ISIS.

A Syrian army statement released on Syrian state television said the plane crashed and the pilot was missing.

The US Central Command later issued a statement claiming the Syrian plane was downed “in collective self-defense of Coalition-partnered forces,” identified as fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near Tabqah.
