Jihadi rebels executed a Syrian pilot they had captured earlier this day after downing his Su-22 in the Eastern Qalamoun region.

The Saudi-backed Jaish al-Islam claimed to have shot down a Syrian fighter jet this morning, and released a footage showing the wreckage of the downed aircraft followed by a short interview with the captured pilot who managed to eject himself before the crash.

Jaish al-Islam’s official spokesman issued a statement accusing Jabhet al-Nusra, the Syrian al-Qaeda branch, of executing the captured pilot, demanding the Joint Operation Room of Jabhet al-Nusra and Ahar al-Sham to explain the circumstances of the execution.

According to the statement, al-Nusra promised to hand over the captured pilot to Jaish al-Islam after interrogating him.

“We were surprised to learn that one of Nusra militants has executed the captured pilot whose fighter jet was downed this morning by us. Our media team has interviewed the pilot at the Joint Operation HQ if Jabhet al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham.

Accordingly, we request an explanation for the execution and call on both al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham to hand over the body of the dead pilot to us”, the statement read.

Meanwhile, Jabhet al-Nusra released a statement denying Jaish al-Islam’s narrative about the whole incident.

The statement confirmed that the aircraft was downed due to a technical failure. Before the crash, the pilot ejected himself and landed in an area controlled by Jabhet al-Nusra, who detained and interrogated him.

“They [Jaish al-Islam] stole the footage and then sent dozens of militants to kidnap the pilot, who was killed by a stray bullet during firefights”.

This is why the pro-Syrian forces should not be so SOFT on the enemy. Too often the SAA and others allow the rebels to retreat (and they subsequently regroup). You cannot spare people like this – you must get rid of them.
An army in its own country should be able to kill thousands of invaders everyday. These attacks on enemies which kill only a few and injure several more are not near enough.
The Syrian and Russian pilots need to attack al-Nusra without mercy over this.

I can tell you that even the civilian or US pilot would like to bomb these motherfuckers with napalm now… There’s a great solidarity between pilots, even if they fight each other! You can’t understand until you’ve not piloted a plane and once you did it, you don’t really still be a human : you belong to another specie, a rare specie…

This is not a stray bullet : what you see is an exit wound by a 9mm parabellum with hollow point bullets shot pointblank in his frontal area with a down angle…
Execution, not a stray bullet!
