Tensions in northern Syria are escalating as Turkish and Syrian forces continue to clash in Idlib province – the last stronghold of jihadists in the war-torn country.

The Turkish Defence Ministry said on Tuesday that a Syrian Arab Army helicopter had been downed and that Syrian forces had to leave the village of al-Nayrab in Idlib province.

The Syrian Army later confirmed that it left the village for a short period of time due to the surprise attack; however, according to recent reports, government forces have recaptured al-Nayrab, pushing out rebels linked to the Jabhat al-Nusra* terrorist organisation.
