    All aircraft of the US-led coalition are safe, the Pentagon said.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Claims of a shot down US attack aircraft in Syria are wrong, US Department of Defense spokesperson Peter Cook announced on Thursday.

    "Reports of US A-10 being shot down over Syria are false. All coalition aircraft are accounted for," Cook stated in a Twitter message.

    Earlier on Thursday, Kurdish news outlet Rudaw reported Daesh terrorists' claims of shooting down a US jet in Hassakah, Syria.
