BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:55 P.M.) – The Syrian pilot that was shot down over the southeastern countryside of Al-Sweida has been captured by the Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants in the area.

Opposition media activists released the picture of the captured pilot, confirming he survived the crash after he bailed out near the Jordanian border.

The pilot’s name and rank have not yet been released by the Syrian military and will likely not be known for several hours.

More details to come…

He is beaten by the terrorists. I really doubt he survives from the wounds and bleedings unless they take him to a hospital in Jordan. The US is supplying arms to these thugs or maybe the US directly hit the place and these thugs took the credit.

No way to tell if he has been beaten from that pic. Shame they have to use 1950s planes when they know the rats have weapons given by the US.

The Syrian government should tell them to give him proper medical treatment and say they will do the same for any captured rebels.

The Syrian government will not say anything because they know it would be counter productive, they are already giving medical assistance to everybody the best they can, just like the people in Donbass republics.

The aircraft was shot down by the invading US/Zionist forces. The response by Syrian government airforce and army against these Zionist mercenarosts should be immediate and overwhelming. They should not be given a chance to enjoy their illisory success. All the Jordanian border must be ckeared of these Zionist scums.

Of course that would be also my wish, however Russians are very careful not to engage the US/Zionists because they are nuclear-armed and irrational, therefore very dangerous, bear that in mind, Syrians and Russians know this, however they don’t want to jeopardize the overarching goal of liberating the country by engaging those monsters when success is near, some civilians and military will pay the ultimate sacrifice however painful to us this might be, they know it.
