Russian jet shot down, pilot killed in Syria's Idlib Province

A Russian Sukhoi-25 ground-attack aircraft has been shot down in a rebel-held area in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib.
The Russian defense ministry said the pilot had ejected into an area believed to be controlled by the jihadist Hayat Tahrir al-Sham alliance.
Although he survived the crash, he was killed in a ground fight, Moscow said.
Hayat Tahrir al-Sham said it had shot down the plane.
The Syrian government, backed by Russian air power, launched a major offensive in December against rebel groups in Idlib.
