At least 22 militants have been killed in an air strike on an al Qaida-affiliated headquarters in northern Syria, a monitoring group has said.

Syria militants shot down a warplane on Tuesday in an area south of the city of Aleppo where insurgents are battling the Syrian army and allied militias, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Any confirmation the rebels now have the missile equipment would be a major escalation in their weaponry.

Two other targets belonging to Al-Nusra and allied jihadist group Jund al-Aqsa in the north of Idlib province were also attacked, Abdel Rahman said, leaving many seriously wounded.

The break has, in fact, allowed Russian Federation and the US-led coalition that has been bombing IS in Syria to concentrate on their fight against the militants.

Last month, Islamist rebels shot down a regime warplane over the village of Kafr Nabuda in the central province of Hama.

Pictures posted online showed rebels speeding to the scene of the crash and surrounding the pilot, who had parachuted to safety.

Al Nusra was also implicated in shelling of the predominantly Kurdish Sheikh Maqsoud neighbourhood in Aleppo on Tuesday.

Syria's partial cease-fire appeared to be unraveling on Saturday amid fierce fighting between government forces and opposition fighters, including members of the al-Qaeda affiliated Nusra Front.
