AMMAN, March 4 - A Syrian army source told state television on Saturday that the air force had lost contact with a fighter jet on a mission near the Turkish border and that a search was underway to find the pilot.

Earlier, Turkey said that a MiG-23 warplane probably belonging to the Syrian air force had crashed on the Syrian side of the border and that the pilot had probably bailed out and may have come down on Turkish soil.
