Beirut - Syria's state news agency SANA said on Tuesday its air defences brought down a US surveillance plane in the coastal province of Latakia.
"Syrian air defences brought down a hostile US surveillance plane in northern Latakia," SANA said in a bulletin, without giving further details.
It was the first such incident since the US-led coalition began carrying out air strikes against the hardline militant Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria last summer.
