BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham shot down a Syrian fighter jet over the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate earlier today.

According to a report from the Syrian military, their Su-22 jet disappeared from radar after carrying out an attack over the southern corridor of the Idlib Governorate.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham said they managed to shoot down the Su-22 while it was bombing the front-line town of Ta’manah.

The jihadists said they captured the pilot in southern Idlib; however, no videos or photos have been released to corroborate these claims.

The Syrian military has also denied that the pilot has been captured.

The latest downing of this Su-22 marks the second time this year that the jihadists have shot down a Syrian military aircraft.

The previous downing of a Syrian aircraft took place in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate after the warplane bombed the town of Al-Latamnah.

La respuesta debe ser mas contundente de parte de la fuerza aérea, lluvia de bombas de mayor poder destructivo para aplastar terroristas en la zona.

You know, what remains of SyAAF doesn’t really allows to rain bombs on mujahideen : there are too few aircraft still flying, most of what remains is about 40-45 years old and has long past their supposed number of flying hours. It’s even more likely that this Su-22 had engines issues and crashed rather having really been shot down, then the roaches are bragging about a “victory” to boost their morale. SyAAF has 36 Yak-130 on order, deliveries postponed due to ongoing war. Putin should really deliver these, these might be trainers, they have as much payload as MiG-23 and…… Read more »

S-400 to Turkey are a lollipop Erdogan will break his teeth on, it has already started : no F-35, CAATSA…
Now would Putin deliver Yak-130, well, these small cheap trainers have impressive teeth for their size : they’re near as powerful as Su-25 and as heavily armed as MiG-23 while much better fit for air support.
