Takfiri terrorists in Idlib Governorate have shot down a Russia Su-25 fighter jet. While the pilot ejected and parachuted his way to the ground, early reports indicated that he was captured by Takfiri terrorists and savagely murdered after fierce combat in which the pilot was vastly outnumbered by heavily armed Takfiri terrorists. These reports were later confirmed by the Russian Defense Ministry.
Russian missile strikes are currently targeting the area in Idlib where Al-Qaeda/al-Nusra terrorists downed the Su-25. According to the Russian Defense Ministry,
“A group strike using precision weapons has been conducted in the area controlled by the Jabhat al-Nusra [Jabhat Fatah al-Sham] terrorist group in Idlib province, from where the missile was launched against the [downed] Russian Su-25 airplane. According to radio intercepts, as a result of the strike, more than 30 militants of Jabhat al-Nusra were destroyed”.
Astana peace partners Russia and Turkey are currently working to secure the body of the martyr.
