BEIRUT - The Syrian wing of al Qaida, the Nusra Front, said it shot down an army cargo plane filled with food and ammunition overnight in the northwest of the country.

The statement appeared on the group's social media accounts.

State news did not mention the downing of the plane, which the Nusra Front said happened near the army-controlled Abu al-Duhur military airport in Idlib province.
