Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Claims Another Syrian Warplane Was Hit Over Hama

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) news network, Iba’a, claimed on June 8 that an L-39 warplane of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) was hit with an unspecified air-defense weapon while conducting a sortie over Greater Idlib.

“A warplane of the criminal regime, of the L-39 type, was damaged after being targeted with the air-defenses of the al-Fateh al-Mubin operations room,” Iba’a’s report reads.

The Aero L-39 Albatros is a Czechoslovakian high-performance jet trainer with offensive capabilities. The SyAAF has been using this type of warplanes in close air support and ground attack missions, since 2012.

Pro-government activists denied HTS claims, saying that no warplane of the SyAAF was hit over Greater Idlib during the last 24 hours.

A day earlier, Su-22M4 of the SyAAF was hit with a man-portable air-defense system (MANPAD) missile over northern Hama. However, the pilot was able to land safely in an unspecified airbase in Homs.

    It could be true, my concern is for the pilot, not the crap ,old planes.

    Who is supplying these terrorist scum the MANPADS (man-portable air-defence system) ?; whoever it is, needs to be taught a lesson.

      .You don’t know the answer? TURKEY

      • You can call me Al

        But is it ?, do they have their own technology, technology that is that advanced ?.

        Nothing new you can expect from Greek Christos

        • Christos Pratis

          Nothing new from you as well. Turkey – a bloodthirsty nazist country that had offered nothing to humanity.

      Maybe Jihadist BS.
      Could be they fired an AA gun and assumed a hit.
      Would the small L-39 trainer survive a Manpad hit?

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      Israel supplies.. Go on taught them a lesson

      • Concrete Mike

        Whats stopping israel.from supplying some AA to kurds?

        As dummy above.advocates…think about it.

    • goingbrokes

      There is a black market for MANPADS. Some estimate that tens of thousands of these weapons are available since ten years ago. But they would be the older models. If they are late models then certainly they have been supplied by FUKUS or Gulf or Turkisrael.

      • You can call me Al

        Thanks.

  • Johan

    How come they have antiair defence and the Ypg is restrained from it? Why can Turkey suppliers those terrorists and the US not?

    • Concrete Mike

      LOL

  • gustavo

    Terrorists need more propagando to rise their moral fighting. No problem, let SAA help them to reach heaven as soon as possible to enjoy their 72 or so virgins.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Turkey’s been supplying all the other new equipment the rebels have been using, Grads, heavy mortars, vehicles, I’ll bet they also supplying the MANPADS too.
