Update: moments ago US Central Command denied the report that a US fighter jet was shot down above Iraq.
Of course, it would be relatively easy for the Islamic State to confirm or deny the report by showing some evidence of the crashed jet.

According to Almasdar News, a US jet was downed by Islamic State militants in the vicinity of Ain Al-Assad base west of Anbar. The reports remain unconfirmed as no video footage or pictures have been published. Though, the event has been reported by ISIS’s media wing, Amaq.
According to unconfirmed reports, the crew of the plane has been killed.
It is unclear as of this moment, if the jet was taken down with US weapons. The US military has not yet commented on the claims by the terror group.
