Syrian army says it has shot down Israeli jet
The Syrian army has said it shot down an Israeli jet, which it claimed had attacked a military target near Palmyra. Israel said all its aircraft returned unscathed. The Syrian army high command said the jet was struck by an anti-aircraft missile after it had flown back into Israeli-controlled territory. It said it was one of four planes which "penetrated our air space at 2.40am (12.30 GMT) via Lebanese territory".
