Syrian rebels shoot down Russian fighter jet

A Russian Sukhoi-25 fighter jet has been shot down in a rebel-held area near Idlib in north Syria, reports say.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said the pilot ejected and was killed, but this has not yet been confirmed.

Video posted on social media appeared to show the plane being hit, while other video showed burning wreckage on the ground, with a red star on a wing.

Russia has acted alongside its Syrian allies targeting rebels in the area.

This little war has been going on for a while but I wonder if the US will be blamed since we're backing the rebels that Russia isn't. Sure Drumpf has his support base but I wonder how long he'll have them if he tries to send in American troops rather than letting this be a UN matter.
