A Turkish rescue team has found the pilot of crashed the crashed Syrian fighter jet who safely parachuted into Altinözü District of Hatay’s province, according to a correspondent of Turkey’s Daily Sabah.

The pilot was found 500m away from the parachute, and taken to a state hospital under guard.

The pilot of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) found his MiG-23 unable to maintain altitude due to technical failure and radar issues while conducting an air raid north of Idlib; subsequently, the troubled pilot ejected from the aircraft while the warplane crashed in Hatay province.

The finding of the pilot contradicts the Syrian government’s statement on the incident indicating that the pilot had landed on Syrian territory.
