The Syrian government has admitted that the ISIL Takfiri militants have conducted flights by three captured planes belonging to the Syrian army.

Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said the country’s forces managed to shoot down two of the three after they made trial flights over the northwestern city of Aleppo on Tuesday.

"Regarding... that terrorists control three jets in al-Jarrah military air base in Aleppo, there are three old aircraft that the terrorists were testing so the Syrian Arab Army immediately destroyed two of them on the runway as they were landing," Zoubi said.

He noted that the Syrian government is not worried about the third plane as it “cannot be used” by the militants.

The information minister added that the plane might be a pretext for the Turkish government to work for the imposition of a no-fly zone over Syria.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday that the ISIL was preparing pilots trained under former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein for future airstrikes against Syria.

Reports by Syrian opposition media said that the militants targeted two MiG 23 fighter jets in Aleppo’s Neirab military airbase.

Meanwhile, Syrian army forces continued making advances against Takfiris in the south by launching a vast operation against militants of the al-Nusra Front.

The Takfiri terrorists, who currently control parts of Syria and Iraq, have committed widespread acts of violence, including mass executions, abductions, torture and forcing women into slavery in the areas they have seized in Iraq and Syria.
