DAMASCUS, Syria, – Daesh is believed to have targeted a Syrian war jet, near an airbase in southern Syria on Thursday, a monitor group reported.

The war plane was hit near the airbase of Khilkhileh, in the southern province of Swaida, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The UK-based watchdog group said, the plane crashed, but the pilot survived and reached a government-controlled area in the countryside of Swaida.

The Daesh confirmed in a statement, targeting the Syrian war plane in Swaida.

Last week, a Syrian war plane was downed by the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, in the northern province of Aleppo.

The incidents come, amid intensified battles in Aleppo between the Syrian army and Nusra militants, in addition to battles between the Nusra and the Daesh, south of the capital Damascus.

Recent reports said, the Daesh took control of much of the Yarmouk Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Damascus, following battles against the Nusra, whose militants have been in control of that devastated area for over two years.
