A Syrian SU-23 fighter aircraft was shot down early today in the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the crash, saying its jihadists has shot down the fighter jet near Thurdah Mountain, which overlooks the city’s airbase currently under the Syrian Army’s control.

The terror group released a footage showing the burnt-out wreckage of the downed jet as well as the body of the dead pilot, identified as Lieutenant Colonel Maher Qash’our.

Technical failure or by a ‘technical’ Toyota pickup with ZSU-23-2 2*23mm auto-cannon?
Well, considering that Mig-23 are more than vintage aircrafts but more likely to be forty-age single engined stuff and with a very complex variable swept wing system, they’re more likely to have a technical failure than being downed 😉

ISIS are showing footages of a Syrian jet downed by them & the burnt body of the pilot. Many civilians died from such bombings by jets.

The target of jets is not to shoot or bomb at civilians, they are altredy more than enough killed by terrorists, the main target is just the bloody mercenary terrorists !

First, if you have a little brain as a civilian in a war zone, you totally avoid to stay where fighters are. Most of mercenaries and shithadist are presented as civilian casualties when dead. Recently, I’ve seen the pics of an airstrike. Strangely, only men bodies, one had still had a tactical radio in his hand… Hey, they stripped them of their tactical gear and as most of them fight in civilian clothes 😉 Funny fact, pic was made by the Houthis, nevertheless, don’t be too fooled by propaganda : it’s not both Assad’s or Putin’s interests to kill civilians… Read more »

Nope, I don’t agree : Daesh are the bastard children of Zarqawi who thought al-Qaeda wasn’t enough hardcore and of al-Douri and others from Saddam’s army and intel that found themselves jobless because of idiotic Bremer.

Oh my God. Poor pilot. Fuck your so called Caliphate.

Yep 🙁 But now they’re beginning to taste carpet bombings… I bet they’ll love it : there may be survivors to tell their tale. If russians were really bad guys, they’d use thermobarics or napalm and roast them alive.
