The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) says in a statement it downed a Syrian jet in mid-flight.

The vehicle had "infiltrated into Israeli airspace" as it was detected over Quneitra near Israeli border, the statement quoted by the Jerusalem Post suggests.

Debris reportedly fell in the Syrian part of the Golan Heights.

The Syrian jet "was a Russian-made Sukhoi," according to a military spokesman.
