A Russian Su-24 fighter has been shot down in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said, adding the plane hadn’t violated Turkish airspace and was flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters.

“During the flight, the aircraft was flying within the borders of Syria, which was registered by objective monitoring data,” the ministry said, adding that the aircraft was “supposedly shot down from the ground.”

The pilots managed to eject, the ministry said, but unfortunately were captured by Obama’s terrorists in Syria.

According to Reuters, a video was sent by a rebel group operating in the northwestern area of Syria, where armed groups including the Free Syrian Army (a terrorist group funded and supported by Obama) are active but Islamic State has no known presence.

The downing of the Russian plane is “a very serious incident,” said Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov. He added, however, that it is too early to draw conclusions until the whole situation is clear.

Footage has emerged online, showing Russian pilots from the downed jet immobile on the ground and surrounded by armed terrorists who were shouting Allahu Akbar out of joy. Some reports claim that one pilot is dead and the other is severely injured and seems to be unconscious and immobile. His face is bruised and bloodied. The men seem to be happy and are praising Allah, with some regretting that they hadn’t burned him on the spot.

“A Russian pilot,” a voice is heard saying as a group of men gather around him. “Allahu Akbar” a voice says.

Reports of a downed plane emerged earlier in Turkish media. A Habertürk TV reporter on the scene said the aircraft “turned into a fireball.” Numerous witnesses wrote on social media, saying thick plumes of smoke have been rising from the jet crash site.

Turkish military added the plane had been warned at least 10 times over a period of five minutes before being shot down by two Turkish F-16 fighter jets. He said the plane had violated Turkish airspace.

The plane reportedly crashed in a village mostly populated by Syrian Turkmen. The place has been a hotspot between the opposition and the Syrian Army.

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has met with officials from the Foreign Ministry. He instructed them to consult with NATO and the UN on the latest developments on the Syrian border, Davutoglu’s office said in a statement.

    I am convinced that the plane was shot down on the orders of the American administration to escalate the war and draw in NATO to oppose Russia. The Russians are defeating Obama”s terrorists, subsequently the British running dogs, the EU cabal and the US traitors are furiously frustrated and will resort to any vile action to try and save face. Watch the media for the insanity about to be unleashed by these scum.

      Could it be because Putin is a great leader who speaks the truth? The former US government has been hijacked by zionist cockroaches who installed an illegal alien faggot as dictator. The zionist control over congress prevents any action from being taken to remove or prosecute the illegal alien commander-in-fraud.
