BEIRUT, Aug 14 (Reuters) - A Syrian government warplane crashed in Idlib province on Wednesday after being targeted by rebel groups, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
The pro-Syrian opposition TV station Orient said the jet had been shot down in Khan Sheikhoun, a rebel-held town towards which government forces are advancing. Syrian state media made no initial mention of such an incident. (Writing by Tom Perry Editing by Peter Graff)
