MIlitants Shoot Down Russian Su-25 Warplane With MANPAD In Idlib Province (Videos)

Donate

UPDATE: The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed the the warplane had been downed by militants. According to the ministry, the militants probably used a MANPAD.

UPDATE 2: Hayat Tahrir al-Sham officially confirmed that it had downed the warplane with a MANPAD.

On February 3, the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) group, Jaysh al-Nasir, announced that its fighters had shot down a Su-25 warplane of the Russian Aerospace Forces over the village of Khan al-Sabil southwest of the city of Saraqib in the southeastern Idlib countryside.

A video released by Syrian opposition activists showed the Su-25 being hit in its right engine by what appears to be an anti-aircraft gun. The pilot ejected from the Su-25 immediately.

The Su-25 pilot was reportedly captured right away by fighters of HTS and the FSA. In a leaked radio conversation, a commander of the militants ordered his fighters to execute the pilot then burn his body once he is captured.

Later, FSA and HTS supporters published on their Telegram channels a photo of the Su-25 pilot after he was executed with several gun shots. According to some reports, the pilot was killed by gun fire before he was able to land.

In the photo the pilot appears to be wearing the official uniform of the Russian Aerospace Forces. However, the identity of the pilot is yet to be confirmed.

On August 1, 2016 five Russian servicemen were killed and decapitated by HTS and FSA fighters when their helicopter was shot down also around Saraqib city.

Syrian opposition sources reported that dozens of Syrian and Russian aircraft are currently flying over the southeastern Idlib countryside in what appears to be an attempt to locate the group responsible for shooting down the Su-25 warplane.

The Ministry of Defense of Russia has not yet commented on the incident.

    That’s what happen when you try to satiate all sides instead of crushing enemies efficiently and forcing them off the battlefield. With the airforce Russia has, these rats should have been exterminated or forced deep underground long ago, but no they try to play all sides in a diplomatic and tactical game to sell more arms. Blowback will always burn @$$€$. It’s just sad and shameful to see them dishonour the blood of their Matyrs by trying to arrange large arm sales to the sides responsible for their deaths.

    • David Pryce

      This is what.happens when the US Arms the turds with manpads

      • Floyd Hazzard

        True too. But, if they had made it impossible for the US to become comfortable by taking the Eastern Euphrates bank and sealing the border from Iraq where they bring in their weapons, it would not have been impossible to arm people do efficiently, but it would have been almost that. Instead they tried to appease the Kurds. Well, deal with the influx of weapons through the Eastern bank.

      Putin sits on his hands allowing Britain, America and Israel to flood Syria with legions of new terrorists, so the cycle never ends. Putin COULD go to the UN tomorrow and demand the USA gets the hell out of Syria, and the USA would literally have no choice but to do so- but instead Putin repeats over and over that the zionist West is welcome to operate (illegally) in Syria if it does so to the ‘right’ ends.

      And why. Cos Putin states he will always do what the jews of Israel want. He states this publicly, and he states this often. That Russia is a slave state to the jews.

      Israel wanted Syria ruined- put back many decades- and this is just what Putin allowed. Putin could have involved Russia from day one, preventing 99% of the bloodshed and 99% of the destruction in Syria. But he waited til the jews got what they wanted first. Then he went in using Syria as a testing ground for new Russian weapons and tactics, and a live fire training ground to elevate most Russian forces to ‘VETERAN’ status. For sure he saved a RUINED Syria from final disaster- but he allowed that ruination in the first place.

      Now the Deep State acts to stick needles into the side of Russia in Syria. Little acts of spite that erode Russia’s reputation.

  • Joe

    Guaranteed as sure as the sun sets tomorrow… a few more days the entire areas would be razed.

    Killing Russian people or soldiers without mercy would surely be met by same to those responsible.
    So far the Russians have not failed to do so.

    Let’s wait … lots of bombing would be in order.. .

    • Starlight

      And the Deep State cares why? It raises cannon fodder amongst the poor of the islamic world far faster than Putin could ever kill them.

      Putin bombing the cannon fodder achieves exactly ZERO. Only when Putin takes on the masterminds in Israel, Britain and America can things change.

      • Joe

        That’s different matter. Now the pilots from Russian base surely would be eager to get even. That’s always been this way .

        second part is correct. Pax Americana and fledgling Pax Judaica which is supposed to replace Pax Amer which itself replaced pax Britannica in 1945….Israel will set a trap for US to fight Russia in the hope that Israel can then become the ruling state in the world, just like Jacques Attali said on french TV ” a world government…. with Jerusalem as its capital “

        So you expect Russia to go house by house to inform the civilians to leave . Silly retarded.

        They will target the terrorists even harder with top priority in that area now.

          Israel, before an airstrike on civilian area, informs the population that an airstrike is comming.

        The Kurds never received any manpads as they were already supplied to Turkey’s proxies all these lies told by fake “McTurk” trying to hide the fact they were given to the Turks for their proxies. Seems like the US can go along with the story they were given to the Afrin Kurds , but in reality they had already sent them last fall to the Turks in preparation of Idleb front.

        • You can call me Al
          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            They relied onan article from AMN , from the beginning opposition sources found the story BS, read the article already. The original article was posted in a well known Kurdish and NATO media source, yet no one was able to provide evidence of the manpads being sent. Just a story that needs some investigating, there was no checking the facts and no sources confirmed even for the SDF , more rumor than fact. The US hadn’t made any decision with them sitting in Incirlik,Turkey as discussions were about armaments for the BSF not YPG.

  • MeMadMax

    If I was the pilot, and there was pretty much no way to RTB or more friendly territory, then I would kamikaze that thing into the closest snackbar object like a technical or something, anyway to ensure that at least one of them die on my way out…

    Theres no way some snackbar is gonna catch me alive to be on some video getting my head cut off or shot up like this poor bastard did…

    Hahahahaha yes, I will never forget when the jihadis killed two Russian servicemen in Aleppo. After that, Russia launched a non stop campaign of bombardment in Aleppo for 5 straight days, annihilating every last one of them and liberating the city.

          About the reconstruction and why people are getting back in Aleppo :
          All houses that belong to opposants of assad, including the civilian ones were looted so that the arrival of the pro-assad civilians is more easy to manage.

    Putin boasted about being on his knees to Netanayu – terrorist jew no.1 – a few days back and now a few days later this. The direct consequence of Russia showing servility to the ‘tribe’, emboldening them.

    Syria was destroyed very publicly by Saudi Arabia and Israel, both of whom boasted about their total disregard of Russia. Yet Putin, to this day, kisses the backside of both of these twin horrors.

    The ‘Kremlim List’, demonising every successful Russian, was published by leading American jews on behalf of the Deep State.

    Russia’s ‘muscular vicar’ makes Russia seem like a laughing stock in the West. It does not matter how much power Russia wields IN THEORY. Putin, with his ever action, makes Russia seem weak and servile. And by doing so he paints a target on Russia’s back.

    Now, of course, Putin will go ‘buck wild’ bombing the ‘rebels’ associated with the downing of the jet and the execution of the pilot, but that won’t matter. The public perception is wholly in the loss of the jet- a zionist propaganda coup of the highest order.

    Israel and Britain will continue to provide the ‘rebels’ with ever more training, tactics and high-tech toys to continue to inflict ‘spectaculars’ on Russian forces. This would stop in a heartbeat if Putin ordered Russia’s ‘fist’ to smash into the ‘nose’ of the bully at max strength- just like ‘The Saker’ and pals tell you must never happen.

    It is the Way of the Coward to allow bullies to continue to bully when you have the means to successfully ‘dissuade’ them. Putin CANNOT be pals with the evil depravities of Israel AND seek a better situation for Greater Humanity.

    • Joe

      Russia will still refer the Americans as ‘partners’ or colleagues .

      Just like Assad quite tame

      But Russia will definitely hit those rebels to meet their makers

      • Antikapitalista

        They will always be “partners” in diplomatic parlance. That is no problem at all.
        In fact, it is perfectly fine to refer to them in such a manner and to use various respectful phrases in communication.

        The problem is that the Russians actually behave as if the Murricans were indeed their respected partners.
        Especially regarding the sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
        Actually, the Russians ought to keep their word at least and veto any additional sanctions unless, say, the United States of Aggression does not engage in genuine and honest talks with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

        Instead, the Russians behave like U.S. lackeys…

  • john

    Yes, executing or murdering the pilot by killing him before he landed is not a good thing.This they will pay dearly for. I would not like to be associated with any FSA group or affiliated groups. They are about to pay a very heavy price. So, too, will The USA and Its owner Israehell.

    • christianblood

      (..Yes, executing or murdering the pilot by killing him before he landed is not a good thing..)

        Wondering if the Russian SU-25, SU-24, SU-27, SU-30, SU-34 and SU-35 deployed in Syria are actually equipped with MAWS devices (missile approach warning system). IF THE ANSWER IS NO, then shutting down more Russian warplanes employing MANPADS (man-portable air-defense systems) will be indeed a piece of cake for the opposing forces, considering that these guys have already in their possession hundreds of those toys.
        INSTEAD OF VENTILATING YOUR ANGER TOWARDS THE SO-CALLED “JIHADISTS,” YOU SHOULD QUESTION THE RUSSIAN AIR OPERATIONS COMMAND BASED IN SYRIA FOR THEIR LACK OF CRITERIA IN SENDING A SU-25 NOT PROPERLY EQUIPPED TO DEAL WITH A MANPADS THREAT (KNOWING THAT THE ENEMY HAS ALREADY BEEN SUPPLIED WITH THOSE WEAPONS).

  • Starlight

    I am old enough to remember when jewish owned ITN, the ‘other’ TV news wire in the UK, had its senior correspondent report from within Afghanistan during the Russian War there, boasting about how Britain provided the islamic terrorists with the means to daily murder Russian military and civilian personnel.

    Remember that jewish Hollywood had both Rambo and James Bond join with the isalmic terrorists of Afghanistan in their war against civilised society in that nation.

    What is now happening in Syria simply follows what happened in Afghanistan. Britain, Israel, France and the UK providing direct assistance and leadership to the islamic terror gangs to enable them to murder Russians.

    Read a newspaper recently- watch a news channel- visit a news site? All scream anti-Russian propaganda 24/7. And what does Putin do? Vote FOR almost every war mongering resolution at the UN proposed by the West. Did you see what Putin inflicted upon the innocent civilians of N Korea, for instance, with Russia’s most recent vote SUPPORTING Trump’s disgusting sanctions?

    Yet the SAME Putin states that Israel must NEVER be sanctioned for doing exactly what N Korea does. Oh no, Putin states jews are the ‘master race’, above the laws of Man.

    Where NATO is ‘legally’ in a nation, the Russians are very publicly excluded. This is how international law works when it is demanded. The West would NEVER ignore international law when it gains infinitely more from it than any other force on the planet. So why doesn’t Putin boot the Americans, British, French, Turks and Israelis out of Syria under the same law? Because the jews in Putin’s inner circle do not want this.

    Putin knows that bombing the zionist cannon fodder in Syria merely allows the zionists an excuse to EXPAND the very network that recruits new cannon fodder. Only by destroying assets higher up this chain could Russia possibly persuade the other ‘actors’ to stop their warmongering.

  • dontlietome

    I am a big Russian supporter in all they have done in Syria so far, and they own the moral high ground. BUT in WW2 they had the habit of shooting German aircrew as they hung in parachutes. If the aircrew made it to terra-firma, it was not unusual for them to be murdered. The days of total warfare with little or no respect for the edicts of the Geneva convention have created a merciless battle ground where respect and honour are little more than just words. I blame the rantings of that evil Jewess Rosa Luxemburg and the Jewish Cabal in the US who have ushered in the inhuman Talmudic rules, and we stupid goys have allowed them to do it.

This will totally destroy the USSA military

  • as

    Now the choice to escalate. Well such is a war. Certainly there would be losses.
    The Russian need to committed much more than before to reduce and prevent its losses or the choice to lessening their support to eventual full exit of the theater of war with goal unachieved.
    Nevertheless this event will burn vengeance to the Russian forces and negative response for the support to Russia intervention in Syria by their citizens. As this years Russian president election would be run i fear further losses like this become an ammunition to greed driven traitorous sellouts.

      Funny how both the US and Turks are pushing for regime change like Israel, seems Kalin is saying that they have nothing to do with Syria and no pact with Russian. So their being there is illegal and against international law, which apparently Harvard International Journal doesn’t understand.

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    Wonder if there were any NATO advisers in that AAS convoy that was obliterated by Russia air force yesterday?

    I can safely say if there was any hope of the U.S. and the Russian Federation ever burying the hatchet, this pretty much ends that hope.

    “leaked radio conversation”. Leaked by whom?

    • World_Eye

      Usually SAA can hear radios of HTS and ISIS or the other way around. I happens a lot.

      • Kira Binkley

        I think it was leaked. And I’d give my eye teeth to know by whom.

  • World_Eye

    R I P my brother you were fighting and you died for a cause bigger than man can adjust in his head, you were fighting to provide someone else’es freedom and peace, you will be remembered because you were in fight against the ultimate evil on this earth, because of your death 1000 more will die my brother, so sorry to the family of his, I can;t imagine how are they are feeling now. As for you killers the low brained Jihadist they will be fucked up really bad for this buddy. You die young so you can achieve peace in other country for someone else there is no bigger bravery than that. Rest In Peace. We don’t know your name but you are our Hero.

    I though, the russian military airplanes are the bestest in the world. So good, that also the F-22 has no chance. And now, look at this shit, some bare-footed cockerels shot down it with slingshot rocket. :))

    • electron

      If a F-117 and F-35 could be shot down by 1970’s AA systems, what would make you think that a Su-25 could not.

    • Brad Isherwood

      Russian TAC air planning with Frontline Controlers is A+ grade
      If They are targeting Takfiri…..the roasting is for sure.

      Russia’s problem is failed geostrategic with All the nations involved in the Syrian conflict.

      Iran failed to run TAC air or Airmobile (Helicopter ) operations in Syria.
      Airpower is the zenith factor in a conflict of this area range,along with Insurgents cross borders,Turkey,Jordan,Golan (Israel) and Iraq.

      Russia could have demanded ** this level of military response and logistic for this conflict.
      Instead……Russia did not lead. ….the war became a Sleazy in and out border …crime/death spree.

      Some say Putin could not attack or it would be WW 3.
      BS!!!

  • Kira Binkley

    So what happened in Sochi this week? Did someone not get what he wanted?

  • electron

    Honestly, I am surprised that it took so long for this to happen. Those Su-25`s should never drop below 3,000 m, but their lower limit is as low as 1,000 meters and this makes them very easy targets. They are well armored; but armoring does not help if a wing is broken by AA blast. Rusha should expect more and more of this sort of outcome, especially before election. Potn may have wanted to earn some PR points by pulling the forces out, but this may fire back spectacularly.
    Instead of continuing to implement the 1970`s tactics of massed delivery of S-8, they could easily procure a laser guided S-13 rocket, with increased range, which would require many fewer passes and many fewer rounds to get the job done; not to mention keep the aircraft out of manpads range.

    • World_Eye

      Noting is perfect man, nothing can come out as they want, it is a war and in war there are always will be casualties from both side, although for the Su-25 to achieve his maximum accuracy when he shots his rocket pods he needs to be as much as possible on lower altitude so he can kill the target more efficiently. When they doing this they are always trowing flares but this time none were drooped, I don’t know what, so ironically Russian Jet killed by Russian Man-pad SA-18 Igla.

    • Brad Isherwood

      Putin gives rewards to trash like Erdogan who murder 100,000 Syrians and some Russians.
      Yes…the Insurgent trash in Syria stayed in Turk hotels after arriving from some distant 3rd world shithole.
      They then we’re organized by CIA,NATO,Turk,Saudi,UAE handlers into units.
      Recieved training on weapons. ..MANPADs. …TOW,.
      Given a bag of Captigon pills and off to Syria you go.

      Erdogan is a murdering piece of filth who deserves to become 1 Million youtube view of his death.
      Instead…he gets Trade deals from Russia,Turkstream pipeline, S 400 airdefence..

      Russia could have put in several Airborne divisions in 2015…secured,recovered key border locations,dams on the Euphrates.
      Trained Syria and Iran on air mobile operations. …delivered Attack Helicopters with night/Thermal targeting.
      Instead. …Russia sent a smoking bucket Aircraft carrier which lost 2 aircraft and cost Millions to operate. ..achieve nothing.
      A Russian general lit into Putin for letting Takfiri trash leave Aleppo with weapons
      Who then burned Syrian Bus driver alive and bombed the buses of Syrians being relocated in Idlib province.

      • RichardD

        Can you provide budgeting and causality estimates for your plan, as well as what the likely Jew world response to it would be if it was implemented?

        Right now it costs the Russians 1 billion dollars a year, and almost no casualties. War costs and casualties would sky rocket under your plan and Putin’s public support would drop.

        • Brad Isherwood

          Richard. ….Your Patriotism to Putin/Russia and Assad/Syria is commendable.

          Yes….Assad and Syria are toast if Russia does not intervene.

          Candidly. ….the Syrian war is FUBAR because leadership failed and that includes Russia.
          Assad has 100,000s of military age chasing girls on motorcycles.
          The Public rally’s for Assad… and then the poor performance of the military is Captain
          Obvious something is wrong.

          Air mobile logistic and attack beats Toyota with 23 mm. ….
          Syria’s borders were left to insurgents for years after Russia entered the conflict.
          US stole 1/3 of Syria on the easy .
          Why Putin/Lavrov never told Israel and Netanyahu to bugger off or else is Historic mystery.
          It reeks of compromise with the very same trash who murdered the Czar and plunged Russia into misery for nearly 100 years.

          Empire is Fascism. ….You can’t negotiate with Fascism.
          Israel will never create new Jew ass @uck world elsewhere in the mid east.
          They cannot subjugate the Palestinians. …only just torment them.

          Palestinians deserve Russia assist and technology accross the board.
          To Hell with the platform shoe midget King of Jordan.
          Russia should be making this Empire puppets life a living hell.

          Iraq,Syria. ..have capable military organization which just requires Air mobile strength and
          Field tactical from communications to Counter battery fire radar.

          Instead of run around putting out endless Takfiri fires.
          You cut off their supply route and kill them via thermal targeting and Sat coverage.
          Anyone warming and not where they are supposed to be. ….gets ended.

          Call it AI …..with no sorry for you

          I can’t buy the BS that if Putin pushes back its WW 3.
          That’s BS and posters pushing that are just Gatekeeping for Oligarch Jews and Bankers who seldom eat a deserved bullet.

          Putin can be one of the Greatest Statesman in the 21st. ..
          Eurasia can just walk away from Evil USD $ and rescue umpteen Millions from debt Bondage

          What happens after Putin?
          He can’t manage this forever…
          Russia’s military is already cornered and making feeble excuses for setting up Nuclear

          Even China is Soft on Empire… step on its balls ..in Pacifica

          Whoever launched the SLBM off San Diego years ago needs to be given awards,

            Syria is getting Genocide while US and Israel have popcorn and drinks for this movie.

            If you don’t want to have a rational debate of the issues, like the fact that the Syrian government footprint grows every day, while the regime change foot print shrinks. Then you’re a truth hater ignoring reality.

      • 888mladen .

        Facts of life. For politicians human lives have always expendable items. RU has been dragging its feet in Syria for too long. The one in life time opportunity during US election has been squandered by Putin’s pipe dream that Trump would bring radical change in US policy toward RU. Does he really understand how US government works? No new US president has ever brought change to US policies and it will never do.

  • Alexander Seredin

    MANPAD, used by these monsters is obviously gifted to them by the USA, to shoot down Russian plane. There is no end to this savagery supported by US

  • Alejandro Bonifacio

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    I think pilot was trusted as he did not drop Flares to avoid manpads…

    • You can call me Al

      I am unsure if they have them, it would be interesting to find out.

  • World_Eye
  • That Guy

    Don’t Russian aircrafts have ECM, missile-approaching warning, or at least RWR?

    • World_Eye

      That’s what I wonder, when you are painted with Man-pad or in this case here the SA-18 Igla you need 10-20 seconds to lock on the target-to paint him for that duration and shoot out the missile, and while you are painting the Jet the pilot electronics should tell him that he is painted and start deploy flares-heat-decoys but in this case none of that happen, which is too strange did pilot was having warning but flares didn’t go out or none of the above.

  • World_Eye

    Here is the poor young 22 year old pilot shot with over 45 bullets while parachuting down and on ground shooting more at him.

    • Joe Doe

      It’s obvious from the pictures that he was torture, before he was killed

        Oh yes mate he was beaten, then they were shooting bullets at this dead body, Massacre that’s not a way soldier to die, but go tell that to this fucking animals.

      • electron

        He was fighting back and firing on the assailants with his auto-9mm.
        He was killed just before hitting the ground, or right after; but it is highly improbable he was captured alive.
        BTW, pilots often sustain heavy bruising, especially in the eyes/nose area, after ejecting, due to high g-forces.

  • Joe Doe

    I will unleash hell in Idlib, but Putin is to weak to do it

    • World_Eye

      The retaliated with few Kalibr cruise missiles on some targets and Ru MOD says that eliminated some 30 Jihadists from the same group that shot down the Jet. But who knows who did they kill.But one is for sure , for this pilot alot of ugly jihadist will die in up coming days, now there are talks held with Turkey and Russia with the Jihadist to return the body of the dead pilot, of course Turkey must be involved cuz those are Turkey Jihadists. I dont know what will happen

      • Joe Doe

        If, I will add the numbers Jihadists killed provided by Russia MoD, they all should be dead. I don’t believe the Russia MoD statistics. Turkey play double game and Putin allowed, as Putin also play game. In regards the pilot, most likely Spetsnaz will be involved to hunt the killers down. Knowing Spetsnaza, anyone who got involved killing the pilot will go through hell before they will die

        • World_Eye

          You think SPETSNAZ operates in that area, and will do some blow to these responsible jihadists?

          • Joe Doe

            SPETSNAZ has many divisions with specialty in tasks. For sure SPETSNAZ operates in Syria.

          • Eskandar Black

            spetznaz is simly special forces, its short hand from russian, where speznaz refers to forces for spetsalnova naznocheniya or special forces. A lof of units can come under the umbrella of this name. (There is a spetznaz division attached to most forward russian operating units, usually responsible for security and special tasks) There will likely be a lot of precisions strikes and a possible operation with some commandos to ascertain the origin of the manpads and the purpose of its use.

          • Joe Doe

            Depends what the orders will be; just killed the terrorists or catch, than kill it. If second option, than gone be very ugly for the terrorist and I do not even want to go into details

  • peter

    One another Russian aircraft shot down by us Manpad,one IGLA rocket for Taliban.this will right score.

    • World_Eye

      No it was actually Sa-18 Igla that shot down the Russian Jets, Iglas are too much present in Idlib, Stringers are kinda hard to find and rare they are going only in very safe hands. It is US buying Iglas from old soviet countries or Bulgaria, every country has it these days. the US will not allow it self to give Stingers to Jihadist because after when we all see the Stinger we all know is the US. The US dogs play smarter they have money, so they buy off Igla’s from other countries via CIA and so long you get the picture from there on.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        No, it was a manpad not a Russian SA-18 video evidence says otherwise should notice the US camo and boots there beside the body these are Pentagon lapdogs Jaish al-Nasr.

      • peter

        Thank you for info,but buyer is correct ,cia !

  • electron

    Is this because of naivete & completely throwing caution aside? Is it b/c of egotism & operating on a mythical conviction that no one would dare hit them?

    We have been seeing daily, low level Su-25 ops, and none used flares when climbing out.
    Older versions have no anti-manpads systems or advanced missile approach warning systems. This points to the possibility that pilots were briefed that militants have manpads, but would not use them against RuAF aircraft. What else could it be?

    Ru has reportedly already fired cruise missiles; but if this is just for PR purposes, it will only reinforce the tera wrists to do more of the same. Meanwhile, a video of Muhhaysini near the crash site was released, where he is celebrating the shot down and killing of the pilot!

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Then he might be among the dead there or wounded , noticed new US camo and boots at the site next to the body in the video wonder who it was maybe wounded anyways or dead would bee nice payback though if he was.

    Disgusting knuckle-draggers, don’t even have the decency and sense to capture the pilot alive. Murdering people is all they know. This won’t stop the advance though, Russian-backed SAA are marching towards Idlib. So they can either surrender or get put-down like the animals they are.

    Well, it looks like that Israel-USA-NATO have risen this war to the next level by providing terrorists with MANPAD. So, Russia-Syria-Hezbolah-Iran have not other option than to finish fast and without mercy thess terrorists without any possibility of negotiation. Russia can finish totally with these terrorists, and to stop Turkey and Kurds (USA-puppets).

    Militants shot down Su-25 from the group,
    which is supported by Ankara. Meanwhile, a simple analysis of objective
    information posted in the Arab and Turkish media, as well as in social
    networks, suggests that the main executors of the operation to destroy the
    Russian aircraft were militants from the Pro-Turkish “moderate”
    group “Jaish al-Nasr”, which is part of the free Syrian army
    (FSA). As soon as photos and videos with details of destruction of su-25
    appeared in social networks, it was confirmed, for example, by the press
    Secretary of “Jaish an-Nasr” Mohammad Rashed. In an interview
    with the Turkish Agency Anadolu, he said that the su-25 was shot down from
    a man-portable air defense missile system (MANPADS),
    when the plane made maneuvers, “preparing to strike at The sarakib
    area in the East of Idlib province.” Allegedly, the militants of
    “Jaish al-Nasr” considered that the plane belongs to the Syrian
    air force, and therefore he was shot down. Like, in the PAS are outraged
    that the district Sarakibe aircraft of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad
    bombed a few weeks. At the same time, most Russian experts consider that
    the Pro-Turkish forces have shot down a Russian plane deliberately, as
    revenge for participating in the combat aerospace forces (VKS) Russia in
    Idlib. Russian su-25 have the appropriate identification marks and fly, as
    a rule, at low altitude, so it is very difficult not to notice these
    signs, experts say.
