BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) has released a video showing the aftermath of the Syrian aircraft that crashed in the Yarmouk Basin region yesterday.
In the video, the debris from the downed Syrian aircraft can be seen spread across an undisclosed location inside the Yarmouk Basin region.
The Syrian Su-22 was struck by two Israeli Patriot missiles after bombing the Islamic State affiliated Jaysh Khaled bin Walid forces around the town of Saida, which is near the border of the occupied Golan Heights.
The Syrian Su-22 had just finished bombing Jaysh Khaled bin Walid at the border-town of Saida, when the Israeli air defense fired the Patriot missiles at the aircraft.
The pilot of the Su-22 jet was identified as Colonel ‘Umran Mare’ of Tartous; he was killed after his aircraft was struck by the Israel Patriot missiles.
Mare’ is the second Syrian Air Force pilot that has been killed by the Israeli air defense since 2014.
The Syrian Ministry of Defense has condemned this attack by the Israeli forces, adding that the Su-22 jet had never crossed over the demilitarized zone, despite contrasting claims by Israel.
