BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham recently released a video claiming they hit a Syrian military jet over the southern countryside of the Idlib Governoate.

Led by their Jaysh Umar bin Al-Khattab faction, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham claimed they hit the Syrian jet, but the video they released does not corroborate their claims.

In the video released on June 19th, the jihadist group’s media wing alleges that the Syrian jet was hit, but the footage only shows a militant firing towards the sky.

The militant forces in northwestern Syria have struck both Syrian and Russian jets before, but a source from the air force has dismissed the recent claims by the jihadists as ‘lies’.

All I can see in the video is a Zu-23-2 shooting. IMHO, had they succeeded, the camera would have started filming the aircraft. We hear the jet engine quietly going away, no explosion noise and, to be frank, considering the noise of the engine compared to ambient noise while Zu-23-2 effective range is only 2.5km, the aircraft was out of range. SyAAF really needs spy-planes with capabilities adapted to hunt these targets, just think about the Vietnam-era OV-1B Mohawk with its big SLAR radar : The Side-Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR) could look through foliage and map terrain, and there is… Read more »
