A drone, believed to be a Russian Orlan-10, has been shot down by jihadi rebels in the eastern districts on the northern city of Aleppo.

Raw footage has been released by pro-opposition groups showing a group of people holding a broken drone.

The exact location where the drone was downed is still not identified.

The Orlan-10 is an unmanned aerial vehicle reported to have been produced for the Russian government at the Special Technological Centre of Saint Petersburg.

In October 2015, the ultra-conservative Jaish al-Mujahideen claimed to have shot down a Russian Orlan-10 near the village of Ibtin, nearly 5 km south of Aleppo.
