#AceWorldNews – IRAQ – October 22 – The Syrian Air Force has destroyed two of three jets seized by the Islamic State (IS) group last week, the information minister in Damascus said.
Omran al-Zoubi said on television that Syrian aircraft bombed the jets as they were landing at Jarrah airbase in the eastern countryside of Aleppo province.
The militants were able to hide a third jet, which the Syrian Air Force is now searching for, AP quoted the minister as saying.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had reported that IS militants flew three MiG fighter jets over the air base with the help of former Iraqi air force pilots.
