A plane believed to be a Syrian military aircraft has crashed near the border between Syria and Turkey, Turkish officials say.
A Syrian army source said the air force had lost contact with a fighter jet near the border, state TV reported.
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said a search was under way for the pilot, who was thought to have ejected.
An Islamist group which is fighting the Syrian government said the plane had been shot
Ahrar al-Sham tweeted a video which it said showed the plane being "targeted".
A spokesman for the group, Ahmed Karaali, was quoted by Turkey's state-run news agency Anadolu as saying the government plane had been bombing Idlib province in northern Syria when it was shot down by opposition forces.
