BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham alleged on Wednesday that their group hit a Syrian military jet with an anti-aircraft missile (i.e. MANPADS) in the Hama countryside.

According to the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham claim, they hit the Syrian jet as it was flying back to its home base in the Hama Governorate.

After the missile hit the jet, the Syrian Air Force pilot was forced to make an emergency landing at the nearby Hama Military Airport.

Al-Masdar has reached out to the Syrian military this morning to confirm this claim by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham; they have yet to respond.

If this report proves true, this will mark the second time this month that Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allies have struck a Syrian jet with an anti-aircraft missile.

The first attack was confirmed by the Syrian military, who said their veteran pilot was able to return safely to his home base after the missile strike.

While it is not necessarily clear what kind of MANPADS the jihadist forces are using, they have captured a number of these missiles from the Syrian military over the years.

Furthermore, there have been reports of the Turkish military providing these anti-aircraft missiles to the militants in northwestern Syria; however, these claims have not been confirmed.

Exactly, terrorists are attacking SAA-Russia with USA-Israel-NATO(Turkey) weapons provided by Turkey. But this is not new at all, and it is very well known by Russia. What happen is that Turkey (NATO) has known how to stuck Russia in Idlib (commerical and economical ties).
