Damascus, April 5 (IANS) Militants on Tuesday shot down a Syrian warplane in Aleppo province, a monitor group reported.
The Al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front targetted the warplane in the town of Eis, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The London-based watchdog group did not give details of the plane crew or their fate, Xinhua news agency reported.
Meanwhile, other activists published a 20-second online video purporting to show the warplane while falling down in flames.
Activists also released another 30-second video clip, showing the pilot of the downed warplane being beaten up by an angry crowd of rebels while he lay down.
One militant said “Take whatever weapon he may have,” while another one called him a “dog”.
