TASS
 A Su-25 fighter jet of the Russian Aerospace Force was shot down by militants in Syria on Saturday, the pilot ejected but was killed later by terrorists, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
"On 3 February 2018, a Russian fighter jet Su-25 crashed when flying over the Idlib de-escalation zone. The pilot was able to report ejection from an area controlled by Jabhat al-Nusra militants (the terrorist group banned in Russia - TASS)," the defense ministry said. "The pilot was killed while fighting against terrorists."
"According to preliminary information, the jet was brought down with a portable anti-aircraft missile system," it added.

Sputnik:

The Russian Ministry of Defense revealed the preliminary information on the incident, saying that the aircraft might be shot down with the help of a man-portable air defense system. The pilot survived the crash, but was killed during a fight with terrorists.
According to the ministry, Russia and Turkey, peace guarantor in Syria's Idlib de-escalation zone, are taking all possible efforts to bring the body of the killed pilot back.

The Russian Defense Ministry stated that the pilot ejected himself from the downing aircraft and managed to survive, but was killed during a battle with terrorists. 

RT:
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 the Su-25 plane was downed by a man-portable air-defense system (MANPAD), 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 the area controlled by Al-Nusra terrorist group, the statement said. He was killed during a confrontation with the militants from an unspecified group.



Who supplied the manpads? The RT reporter says this specific group, Jaysh al Nasr, has US connections. Originating in Darayya (rural Damascus)


 In late October 2015, it was announced that three of its component groups, the Regiment 111, the Falcons of al-Ghab and the al-Inqaz Front (Jabhat al-Inqadh al-Muqatila) completely merged into Jaysh al-Nasr with Suqour al-Ghab's leader Mohamed Mansour assuming the leadership of the new unified group.[2] In late September 2016, the group previously known as Ahrar Darayya (who had been evacuated from Darayya due to a deal made with the Syrian government) announced they merge into Jaysh al-Nasr.[7]

  1. They either got it from Erdogan or the CIA--not much difference.
    CIA is doing a repeat of Afghanistan 1985 when they gave the same to the Taliban 2 chase out the Red Army.

    With the Russian elections coming up, look for more and bigger incidents, since in their rotted mind they're trying to get Russians to say NYET to another Putin term.

    I don't wish harm on anyone, but some kind of serious cock up needs to happen to the USA so we'll get emasculated. This endless war mongering is killing people slowly and the real shit much faster.

    Two POSITIVE things would happen: One, much of the world could breathe a sigh of relief that the #1 terrorist state is OOS.
    Two, the parasitic state of Stolenland, deprived of its mains source of sustenance, would wither up and die.
    Great news for everyone except Americans and that leech we've got stuck in our necks.

      "A Syrian rebel group has paraded a cache of shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles, the first evidence of the weapons being supplied to opposition forces after an expected relaxing of US restrictions.

      Members of the Ansar al-Islam Front were shown in a video posted on 20 November testing SA-7 Strela-2 missiles"

      "Ansar al Islam is a Kurdish Salafist group

      "A Syrian rebel group has paraded a cache of shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles, the first evidence of the weapons being supplied to opposition forces after an expected relaxing of US restrictions.

      Members of the Ansar al-Islam Front were shown in a video posted on 20 November testing SA-7 Strela-2 missiles, although the weapons are not shown being fired.

      The group said they had a "good number" of the weapons, which were being deployed among Ansar and Free Syrian Army forces to counter government aircraft in Daraa and Quneitra, to the south of the country.

      The first fighter in the video can be heard saying: "We, in Ansar al-Islam Front, have distributed several points of air defence to counter any attempt by the Syrian warplanes or helicopters which bombs points in Quneitra province. We have good number of these missiles."

      Since this rebel group originated in the countryside of Damascus- I can't discount that these arms were possibly siphoned through via Israel and Jordan...

      They'd have the right "connections"
      waiting to see the fall out on this incident
