    Islamic State (IS) militants have shot down a US-led coalition warplane over northern Syria, activists say.
    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the aircraft, believed to be from an Arab state, went down near Raqqa.
    The UK-based group said the fate of the pilot was unknown, but IS supporters published photos they said showed a Jordanian airman surrounded by gunmen. Jordan is one of four Arab countries whose aircraft have been bombing IS positions in Syria since September.
    The Jordanian authorities have so far not commented on the incident.


    ISIS claims capture of Jordan pilot after plane downed - CNN.com
    (CNN) -- ISIS militants claim to have captured a Jordanian pilot after shooting down a coalition warplane over Syria on Wednesday, according to a statement posted on an ISIS-affiliated Twitter account.
    The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had reported earlier Wednesday that ISIS had shot down an unidentified warplane near the extremist group's stronghold of Raqqa



    Fallen.
    This is very bad news and will probably lead to a horrendous outcome for the captured pilot. Nevertheless, I don't believe the coalition can afford to waver in its fight against one of the more cruel and brutal movements of recent times. It would be a geopolitical disaster if ISIS were left alone, could consolidate its gains, and then ultimately destabilize Lebanon, with its own factional fault lines, and Jordan.
