Chilling Footage Shows The Moment A Militant Shot Syrian Army Plane Out Of The Sky

Yesterday, militants stationed in Hama, a governate in northern Syria, shot down a L-39 Albatros fighter belonging to the Syrian army, killing its pilot.

Though details about which militant group carried out the attack and the fate of the pilot remain sketchy, a video has surfaced on social media showing a militant firing what appears to be a shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft gun into the sky.

The projectile appears to strike an object, then, moments later, a plume of smoke rises from the ground in the distance. All the while, machine guns can be heard in the background.

 

 

According to Russia Today, it was not immediately clear which militant group was responsible for the attack, but the so-called Free Idlib Army, an offshoot of the Free Syrian Army, claimed responsibility on social media and in a statement to Turkish Anadolu news agency. Reuters also reported that Tahrir al-Sham, an Al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, had also claimed responsibility.

Every time I hear one of those shitty ragheads yelling "Allahu Akbar" I want to just carpet bomb the entire middle east. What backwards shitstains. No wonder the world is  a mess with such a shitty belief system. I need some trigger time.

"Every time I hear one of those shitty ragheads yelling "Allahu Akbar" I want to just carpet bomb the entire middle east. What backwards shitstains. No wonder the world is  a mess with such a shitty belief system. I need some trigger time." I think "Allah Akbar" means "God Be Praised" or something like that.I'm not defending the Muslim religion with this statement, but try to imagine yourself in a perpetual state of war against an alien foe headquartered on the other side of the earth.  Their jets invade your airspace and bomb your families indiscriminately and without pity.  You have your own version of an anti-aircraft missile launcher which you successfully fire to down one of these deadly interlopers on your territory.  Would you - just maybe - cry out "God Be Praised" as it floated helplessly to the ground?Empathy is a mighty virtue.  Its use makes one wise and self-analytical.

I’m not “attacking” the creeps if you’re not “defending “ them but you are either full of it or simply uninformed.

Those creeps have not shown anyone, including themselves, any empathy and your crocodile-tear’d appeal does not resonate well.

Try calling a spayed “a spayed.”

don't use euphemisms. "moderate terrorist" means just "terrorist currently on our side"made worse by an Obama "policy" of calling the same group "moderate terrorist" if they are on this side of one border and "damn terrorist" if they are on that side of the same border, made worse again by the fact that the border was drawn arbitrarily in the sand (ok, on a map) by an English lady not even a century ago

Exceptional War Criminals of the Highest Order. but you still think that it's "all the same, really" and only a "Left/Right" thingimo that's the Problem Number One of the USA: that "It's All The Same, Really". that immense... superficiality. that "meh" squaredI repeat:You Are Being Duped.

Good muslim terrorist: a guy who is shooting down a syrian /russian plane with a US made and C!A-delievered SAM. If he likes, he can rape and burn the pilot afterwards. As long as he does it "moderately", no objection.Bad muslim extremist: the very same guy, when he has not used up all these SAMs agains russia/Syria/iran and instead starts threatening Israeli, American/Turkish planes with the same weapons.

It means "allah biggest".Because islam is the unification of pagan idols under one god that is allah, the biggest of them all. Either you utter that creed and join, or torture and head chopping will be your punishment. That is why islam conqured 57 countries by the sword / rape / looting.Satan worship. Because he objected: "No, Adam must bow down to me!".

"However, Bush never promised peace. Mohammed Obama promised to end the wars, help the middle class, create jobs etc. He broke every campaign promise. Obama's entire life is one string of lies."

So that makes the war crime legitimate if you don't declare peace even if you create war on a pretext that kills 3,000 of your's and murders 2 million of theirs?...

You don't have to even tell me where you come from!... The infestation in this Country is so bad we deserve to be melted just as badly as IsraHell!...

And more than likely WILL BE!!!

From as long as I can remember the government, our government has mislead us, lied to us, and played on our patriotism to send us to kill people that are absolutely no threat to me and my family.   It sickens me and I am powerless to stop it.  I have dear ones in the thick of it and I will do everything in my power to aid their families when they are deployed.  I will pray for their safe return but I am not deluded into thinking these wars are just.

A US Soldier would be yelling "MOTHERFUCKER" etc.This guy in the video was shooting down an aircraft from the legitimate government of Syria, and he was most likely a mercenary, not some Ahmed protecting his home and family from some "deadly interloper on his territory", in fact, he is most likely the "deadly interloper". Or did you forget he most likely got the missile from the CIA to be used against the legitimate government of the territory?Try to get up to speed.

Muslims specialize in killing other Muslims. Muslims killed by the west are small numbers compared to the muz on muz slaughter. That said, I am a non-interventionist, muz do not need any help killing muz, they do a pretty good job of it by themselves.Assad's planes and helicopters have been shot out of the sky (by Muslims) since day one practically. This is really not news.Duh.    Grimaldus

You are correct in the meaning of "Allahu Akbar". I understand empathy but that shit goes out the window when you see reality. Do you really know what these people are like? Ever seen what vile shit they do? Do you know what goes on just at Gitmo with these filth? I have seen first hand, so I assume you've not experienced the fun that is the average muslim man ( the women are kept in check for the most part ). Want just a taste of what they do? So look up what they do when you hand them a tube of toothpaste while being held in Gitmo. Explain that one to your kids."The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot." - General "Mad Dog" Mattis

 You do realize, oh genius sensei who listens to classical and needs to let us all know the level of sophistication it holds, that Islam, the youngest religion on the planet,  was born of war and conquest and seeks endless amounts of it as long as the earth has not been subdues by it?  Please take your " try to imagine yourself in a perpetual state of war against an alien foe" and shove it directly up your devil’s advocate sized orifice.

I love how you side with the scum of the earth Palestinians. Who said I'm supporting the Jews? I just see that it's not Jews that are trying to fly airplanes into buildings and kill Americans for not fucking goats and believing in the whole Mohammed false prophet bullshit. Hell, I'm not even religious but when some goat fucker with a towel on his head wants to force me to become muslim then all bets are off. I do rather enjoy sipping a cold beer while watching the infra-red videos from the attack helicopters as they chop muslims to pieces with 25mm canon fire. Quite entertaining. Muslims detract from the world, they don't contribute.

"Every time I hear one of those shitty ragheads yelling "Allahu Akbar" I want to just carpet bomb the entire middle east."funny that. I get a completely different set of feelingswhen I see some turban-wearing guy shooting a missile at an aircraft, I am reminded - facepalm, facepalm, facepalm - on how the US started to recruit Saudis like Osama Bin Laden to go to Afghanistan and shoot down Russian "Hind" Gunship/Helicopters with US made "Stinger" anti-aircraft missiles.yes, the same US agent Osama Bin Laden that later founded Al-Qaeda. the same Freedom FightersTaliban still have Reagan's Stingers - Telegraphand when I read a comment like this, I am reminded - facepalm, facepalm, facepalm - on how nearly the whole world told Bush Jr. and Cheney that "Saddam has no WMDs" and that "This is going to destabilize the whole Middle East"... to which the Congress Cafeteria replied by striking French Fries from the menu and putting "Freedom Fries" insteadI also remember how Patriotic Americans replied by spilling French wines in the gutters on TV. it was CNN, in case you are asking. Cheney and Bush Jr. went on, with a Coalition of the Willing instead of NATObut hey, just recently the US told the world that it is recognizing Jerusalem as capital of Israel. 128 countries replied with "you are kidding, aren't you?" and "This Is Going To Make Everything More Difficult In the Middle East" but...you have now a new "War On...", this time the "War On Islam", and that's all what Weapons Merchant Inc. needs, for ChristmasYou Are Being Duped. AgainI repeat:You.     Are.     Being.     Duped.....       Againfunny, how feelings can be so different, when presented with the same imagery

Sure there has got to be some blowback from the criminal progressive led intervention and warmongering in the ME. Oh and by the way---Aren't YOU something of a progressive? By your own admission here on ZH I do believe.Even without any intervention in Islamist countries (intervention which I believe is wrong)----- all cause for blowback removed, Islam is still at war with the rest of the world and will still attack.Mohammad lined up some 800-900 men and boys of a Jewish tribe living in Medina, Saudi Arabia in front of a ditch and had all their heads chopped off ISIS style. And that was after they surrendered to him.To understand the verses of hatred that is the Koran, you must understand the life of Mohammad.Looks like you are the real dupe here dude. Dhimmwit of the day award. But then progressives have a soft spot for Islam don't they? So your comments are true to form. Progressives and Islam, fellow travelers in tyranny.     Grimaldus

progressive led intervention? I did not know that Cheney and Bush Jr. were called "progressives"I don't think you could call me a "progressive", either. what "admission"?but here is the fallacy of your "argument": "Islam is still at war with the rest of the world and will still attack"Islam? that's 1.4 billion Muslims. again: it's 1'400'000'000 Muslimsif they were truly at war with the rest of the world... nah, I think that's the problem: what do you even know about the rest of the world?you are here, in this very comment, trying to fit the world into your two categories onlyBlack OR White. "You Are Either With Us Or Against Us". Good Versus Evil, Black Hats vs White Hats
