    Daesh, also known as IS/Islamic State, has claimed to have captured a Syrian pilot after his plane crashed.

    "The pilot, called Azzam Eid, from Hama was captured after he fell by parachute near the site where his plane crashed east of Damascus," Amaq, a news agency affiliated with the extremist group, reported.

    Amaq shared a video earlier on Friday claiming to show the plane being shot down by members of Daesh who then surrounded the wreckage. The video has not been independently verified.
