The so-called Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant terrorist group on Wednesday shot down a warplane from the US-led coalition over northern Syria, a monitoring group said, with the terrorists claiming to have captured a Jordanian pilot.

"We have confirmed reports that ISIL members took a (non-Syrian) Arab pilot prisoner after shooting his plane down with an anti-aircraft missile near Raqa city," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The ISIL branch in Raqa published photographs on militant websites purporting to show its fighters holding the captured pilot, with a caption identifying him as Jordanian and giving his name.

Several photographs were released, including one showing the pilot, wearing only a white shirt, being carried from a body of water by four men. Another showed him on land, surrounded by about a dozen armed men.

The terrorists claimed to have shot down the warplane with a heat-seeking missile.

There was no immediate reaction from authorities in Jordan.
