New footage has emerged showing ISIS fighters celebrating their downing of a Syrian fighter jet near Dumayr Airbase in eastern Damascus. At the time, ISIS also claimed to have captured the pilot, a man named Azzam Eid originally from Hama. His fate is currently unknown.

Since this video was taken 2 weeks ago, ISIS has suffered a huge defeat in eastern Damascus, thus withdrawing from Dumayr city and conceding several sites to the Syrian Arab Army.
