Armed rebel groups holding quarters in the Eastern part of Aleppo have shot down a Syrian Armed Forces aircraft killing the crew, according to the Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen news channel.

Al Mayadeen reports that the incident took place not far from the Aleppo airport territory.

Syrian military officials have not commented on the incident so far.

Syrian government forces have been fighting against extremist groups in Eastern Aleppo for several months. In November, government troops liberated almost half of the area after a large-scale offensive.

On November 30, UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura stated that opposition forces in Syria have lost some 40 percent of the territory they once controlled.
