Russian jet shot down- Full video:
Russians respond to terrorists for the shoot-down where “30 terrorists are killed.”
(To be clear, shooting down a military jet that is attacking you is most definitely not terrorism. I am not on the side of the Muslims but I am on the side of clarity and truth to the extent possible. And shooting at a military target, especially in defence is not terrorism even as Germans defending Berlin from Russian and American forces was not terrorism. And it doesn’t make me on their side to say that.)
(The last part of the video is the most interesting. For more on that, see this!)
(Not sure where this is in the Geneva convention. Probably somewhere in the chapter, “Exceptions to RoE for Muslims”)
(One wonders how much damage that did when the jet crashed)
Sandra had a look at this one. She said: “Its a guy very happy that they shot down a Russian jet”.
A Russian Su-25 jet has crashed in Idlib province in north-western Syria, the Russian Defence Ministry confirmed, adding that it was probably shot down by MANPAD. The pilot ejected but was killed by militants on the ground.
Preliminary data showed <strong>the Su-25 plane was downed by a man-portable air-defense system (MANPAD)</strong>, the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.
The attack took place when the jet was flying over the Idlib de-escalation zone on Saturday. The pilot parachuted down into <strong>the area controlled by Al-Nusra terrorist group</strong>, the statement said. He was killed during a confrontation with the militants from an unspecified group.
