The Al-Qaeda franchise in Syria, the Al-Nusra Front, have downed a Sukhoi 22 jet over southern Aleppo and captured the pilot.

Southern Aleppo has been the site of a renewed terrorist offensive that has seen limited results but the breaking of the ceasefire as the Free Syrian Army have joined other terrorist forces in attacking government positions.

The Syrian Military Command however have announced that government forces and their allies will renew their offensive in southern and eastern Aleppo.

Selfie photos have already begun to be posted on terrorist social media accounts.

Videos have already surfaced on the internet of the downing of the jet and of the captured pilot.

Another point : if there were 20,000 stinger lost, I think civilian aviation would know about as a lot of Boeings, Airbus and Tupolevs would be shot down 😉 It would become mandatory to build airports in the midlle of a 10km radius safe zone without letting a single car enter and inspect any luggage enough big to put a ManPADS inside… Colombian and mexican cartels would get probably a big part of those and you’d see missiles mounted on any smurggler’s speedboat or aircraft, they’d attack all gvt helos and COIN-aircrafts tracking them too… 20,000 in the number of… Read more »
