Syrian opposition fighters have shot down a Syrian regime warplane over the southern countryside of Idlib, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and activists said Wednesday.

The London-based Observatory said the plane was targeted as it flew over a grazing-Skik axis in the southern countryside of Idlib.

There was no official or independent confirmation of the report.

The observatory said: "It was the capture of a pilot after the plane was shot down, according to information available so far."

For its part, the "Liberation of the Levant" (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) issued a statement via Telegram, saying it "downed the plane."

Activists said the downed plane was a Russian Sukhoi 22 warplane.

This comes at a time when Syrian government forces have been able to make further progress in the southern sector of the countryside of Idlib province in the northwest of the country, according to the Syrian Observatory.

The observatory that the forces took control of the villages of Kfar'in and Tal Aas south of Idlib, after fierce battles with the factions and armed groups "with air cover and land hysterical."

The troops are thus moving closer to the city of Khan Sheikhoun, the largest town in the south of Idlib, from the western axes to a distance of 4 kilometers from it, after failing to advance from the eastern axes.

The Observatory explained that since the early morning hours, 28 people have been killed: 18 gunmen and 10 government troops and their gunmen.

The regime's warplanes also carried out 29 air strikes targeting the fighting axes south of Idlib, Khan Shaykhun, Al-Taman'a, Tera'i, Kafarsijnah, Hazarin and Al-Rakaya in the southern countryside of Idlib.

The observatory said that with more casualties, it brings to 3,304 the number of people who have died since government forces began last April their most violent escalation ever in the area controlled by militants.
