Hours after Syrian national forces brought down yet another Turkish drone operating over Idlib province, and following last Thursday's major air attack which killed 33 Turkish troops, two Syrian Air Force jets have been shot down reportedly by Turkey's military.

Turkey's defense ministry said in a Twitter post on Sunday it downed two SU-24 aircraft in response to its drone being earlier shot down. It took place over western Idlib.

Syria's SANA news agency confirmed the shoot downs but said the pilots escaped unharmed. Images of two pilots parachuting safely to the ground were also widely circulated in the wake of the incident.
