Jihadi rebels executed a Syrian pilot they had captured earlier this day after downing his Su-22 in the Eastern Qalamoun region.

The Saudi-backed Jaish al-Islam claimed to have shot down a Syrian fighter jet this morning, and released a footage showing the wreckage of the downed aircraft followed by a short interview with the captured pilot who managed to eject himself before the crash. Jaish al-Islam’s official spokesman issued a statement accusing Jabhet al-Nusra, the Syrian al-Qaeda branch, of executing the captured pilot, demanding the Joint Operation Room of Jabhet al-Nusra and Ahar al-Sham to explain the circumstances of the execution.

According to the statement, al-Nusra promised to hand over the captured pilot to Jaish al-Islam after interrogating him.
