Video Captures Cruise Missile Strike On Militants That Shot Down Russian Fighter Jet In Syria

The Russian Ministry of Defense has released footage showing a precision strike against terrorists in the northwest Syria province of Idlib, following the downing of an Su-25 jet. The pilot, Roman Nikolaevich Filippov safely ejected - only to be killed by militants on the ground, according to the Ministry. 

Earlier, Ebaa Agency released a video of the moment the Russian Su-25SM was shot down by MANPADS over Saraqib, in Idlib. According to Ebaa, the AlQaeda affiliated Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) backed by Qatar, was responsible. The MANPADS was probably an FN-6 delivered through Turkey, the agency speculated.

Russia promptly responded: The aerial night-vision footage shows a barrage of cruise missiles hitting ground targets, which are believed to have killed around 30 terrorists. 

More footage reveals a heavy cluster bomb attack on the village of Maasaran, near the site of the downed Su-25:

As we reported earlier, the Su-25 warplane was the first Russian fighter jet downed above Syria since 2015. A Russian defense ministry official confirmed the plane was shot down, stating "The plane was flying around the de-escalation zone of Idlib."

The extremist group Tahrir al-Sham has claimed responsibility for the downing of the Ruissian Su-25, according to Reuters - while another militant group, Jaysh al-Nasr, took credit as well - posting pictures and videos celebrating the downed aircraft to its twitter account. 

The group posted a video with an unknown date containing footage of a 23mm Anti-Aircraft gun ostensibly used to shoot down the Russian jet.

Much as I hope the jihadis lose in Syria (and everywhere else), you guys realise that this bombing probably didn't kill any of the rebels responsible for downing the aircraft? The Russians were obliged to blow up some villages for appearances sake. And you can bet that most of those killed were men, women and children who just happen to live in the wrong place at the wrong time.

 

And, in this instance, the people who shot down the fighter should be described as rebels, not terrorists. It was a military target.

Your friends in The Mosad have safe houses that would be known in Mins after a search for Criminals and are known to recruit the youth when drawn back to Israel on an offer of a Free Trip......No?

Ok. I did.

And as a matter of (somewhat inconvenient - for the current milieu here)historical truth...

Nappy's mistake was to screw with the Sanhedrin - prior to leaving on his eastern adventure. That 'council of the wise'... other wise known as the moneychangin merchants of the international $ power which financed every side in every war - and continues to do so ...

had decided that the lil emperors attempts to free himself of their influence would need be met by a conclusive response. Which was to organize the ashkenazi brethern of the eastern marches to conduct a guerrilla war against his troops... thru Prussia... Silesia... Galicia... "white Russia"... everywhere they marched... a covert warfare was unleashed in the classic rabbinical fashion of the potato-distillers... from poisoned grog to toxic horse feed, bad ammunition, fake intelligence, phony maps, false trails, the whole nine yards...

kinda like the 'alt' and 'msm' medias of today! Misdirection at every turn. Those once invincible Hussars and their Corsican boss never knew what hit them... and would continue to be in the dark up to the last battle... when secret tribesman Soult received instructions to 'get lost' - and his regiments therefore never turned up, to save the day at Waterloo.

And now... back to your usual drip feed of revisionist history for alt tards and grrly guys without a friggin clue bout their own culture or history!

Hurrah!

both correct, same outcome. same shit new technology. in fact much easier to control billions.

wow, makes one actually think of the obvious parallels today. shit, running the deceit game with binary controls.

almost anyone can control the world, with a little jing. hackers unite, the clint e of pale rider forces to be unleashed as an opposing force. even if all they do is provide havoc.

or, pull-the-plug, as in glow in the sky. now that is some real havoc. 80 percent kill rate. coming to a skyview theatre near you. winner take all...

am i dreaming? or...

Nope. According to Russian sources, he fought off the attackers for a while using his pistol, then when he was about to be captured, he used his grenades to take them out with him. His hands show serious damage and there are shrapnel wounds on his face.

Edit: The photo of the dead pilot has been removed from the above link. It is still in this link, partially blurred, so read with caution.

>> It appears that cruise missiles targeting the village of no military importance were sent as an act of vengeance rather than ...

Vengeance?

You can call it that if you wish, but the principle is clear enough - if you let anyone near you shoot down a Russian aircraft then you will soon die, as will everyone near you. You can call that vengeance, or you can call it rough justice. If you are in Syria and you accept gifts of advanced American weaponry then you will die a violent death, this much is clear.

Personally I don't see the problem. They sent 2 cruise missiles to destroy the wreckage.

Anyone idiotic enough to still be standing there filming and snackbaring got exactly what they should have expected, and actually did, in this case. Their cellphone vids have got to be worth a look after that, sadly they are unlikely to be posting them !

Anything else is merely speculation and probably invented for propaganda reasons by the headchoppers and their Western mates.

"this night ... cluster bombs" or suuuuure Mr Headchopper. Interesting grammar BTW. Munitions left on the SU-25 might have gone up with a fairly large series of explosions ..

Besides all parties in Syria use cluster bombs, including the West. Not all execute ejected pilots though. Nice psyop attempt.
