DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:45 P.M.) – The US-led international coalition shot down a Su-22M4 fighter jet belonging to Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) near Rusafa town in southwestern Raqqa countryside.

Syrian aircraft was conducting an air raid on positions held by the so-called “Islamic State” when the airbase lost contact with the pilot, about an hour ago.

At first, technical failure was considered the reason for the aircraft crash.

However, some 20 minutes ago, Syrian Ministry of Defense confirmed that it was coalition air force that had brought the SyAAF warplane down.

More details to come…

Who is the Moron now? The US and their proxies including ISIS are one and the same thing. My question is where is Russia?
