BEIRUT, March 23 (Reuters) - Syria said Turkish air defences shot down a Syrian jet on Sunday while it was attacking rebel forces inside Syrian territory, calling the move a "blatant aggression".

State television quoted a military source as saying the pilot managed to eject from the plane. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said initial reports from the area said the plane came down on the Syrian side of the border.
