BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – The Syrian pilot that was flying the jet near the border of the occupied Golan Heights was reportedly killed during the crash.

According to a military source in Damascus, the pilot was identified as Colonel ‘Umran Mare of Tartous.

Colonel Mare was flying his Su-22 fighter jet in the northwestern corridor of the Yarmouk Basin region, when he reportedly approached the border of the occupied Golan Heights.

The Syrian jet was then struck by two Patriot missiles that were fired by the Israeli air defense forces.

The pilot was then reported dead shortly after his jet crashed in the Yarmouk Basin region of southwest Syria.

Colonel Mare is the second Syrian pilot to be killed by Israel in the last four years.

Please pray that GOD severely punishes Israel for yet another wrongful taking of innocent Syrian lives. The U.S. is Israel’s puppet and of course, the U.N. will not do any’thing of significance in condemning this wrongful taking of life. if it tried to, the U.S. would – as always – veto the action. But GOD is not restricted by ‘the U.S.’ veto power in the U.N. Security Council. Pray that HE severely punish Israel for this latest horrific and illegal action – so severely that Israel would be fearful of doing it again. Pray EVERY Israeli and any other nation’s… Read more »

Israel should have learnt from Oman which is sandwiched between Saudi Arabia & Yemen.

Oman has stayed neutral in the Saudi war against Yemen.

Oman also stayed neutral in the stand off between Qatar & Saudi Arabia.

After reading all available information regarding “the incident” (as Jews media describe it), I’m starting to believe what was the main reason Jews to strike that war jet. That jet was bombing the escape path for white helmets evacuating to Israel (of course killing several white helmets members and their families). Mistake was the Syrian pilot didn’t realize he would not be able to turn around safely in Syrian airspace without going inside Golan heights (occupied by Jews). After launching the bombs he was trying to turn around away from the occupied Golan heights but couldn’t do it without getting… Read more »

Invade where? Only the Zio/Nazi tyranny and its mentor the US tyranny and co invade other countries. The Syrian Golan is Syrian. The Zionist tyranny is an alien, illegal occupation force there. It should leave or forced to leave by military means. Russia will not help, but Iran will. That is why the Zionist tyranny is so concerned about Iran’s presense in Syria.

Very sad the pilot died. According to Syrian military, the pilot mistakenly crossed over the border after bombing Daesh in the northwestern corridor of the Yarmouk Basin 🙁 Better be very careful while operating near the border : Israeli air defences are a bit trigger-happy with anything flying and crossing the border, especially since the Yom Kipour 1973 surprise attack : to better understand, it’s just like doing a surprise attack on a Christian country for X-mas… Air defences could have launched a single missile : shooting 2 Patriots on a Su-22 is overkill : these are dead meat for… Read more »

The Syrian Golan is Syrian. Your analogy of launchiung an attack on a Christian country in Christmas is ridiculous. The Zionist tyranny and its Western luciferian illegal settlers masqueraded as Jews do not belong there. The Zionist tyranny, as always helps its undercover Mossad agents and special forces also known as ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) and not only in the Syrian Golan but everywhere in Syria. Just three days ago for example, the Zionist tyranny bombed the Syrian Army at Homs.
