VIDEO shows precision strike on militants that downed Russian jet in Syria

UN humanitarian adviser Jan Egeland

The SU-25 came down on Saturday in an area of Syria's northern Idlib province that has seen heavy air strikes and fighting on the ground between government forces backed by Russian Federation and Iran, and rebels who oppose President Bashar al-Assad.

Syrian rebels say they brought down a Russian warplane in an area of northern Syria's Idlib province that has seen heavy air strikes, and two rebel sources say they had captured the pilot who was badly injured.

"A Russian Su-25 aircraft crashed during a flight over the Idlib de-escalation zone". The pilot had reported that he ejected by parachute in the area, controlled by Al Nusra.

Syrian rebels said previously on Saturday they had brought down the Russian plane.

DC's groundhog makes his prediction on spring - 6 more weeks
The odds are not in the favor of those hoping for an early spring, as Phil has only predicted it 18 times in the last 132 years. However, other parts of the country have their own groundhogs which are believed to be the true forecasters of the weather.

With the help of Russian forces, the Syrian government has managed to take back much of the country held by rebels.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime recently resumed airstrikes on rebel-held areas such as Idlib province, prompting tens of thousands of civilians to flee their homes, according to United Nations officials. The pilot was killed while fighting against terrorists.

A video circulating on social media shows the lifeless body of a man, his face stained with blood, as bearded gunmen stand around him. Residents said Russian warplanes were responsible. This plane was also carrying out raids there, ' said Abdel Rahman.

But a witness who spoke to CNN via Skype on condition of anonymity said the jet was shot down by Free Syrian Army fighters with a group called Jaish al-Naser as two jets were "striking the village of Massaran on the southern side of Saraqib".

Israel Vows Tours to Poland Won't Be Muzzled by Contentious Holocaust Law
Though the camps were a Nazi enterprise, anti-Semitism was rife in Poland before the war, some of it government-sponsored. A year later, Polish MPs recognised as "genocide" the wartime massacre of some 100,000 Poles by Ukrainian nationalists.

Russian Federation is a key ally of President Bashar Assad, and has been waging a military campaign on behalf of his forces since 2015.

The U.N. says more than 270,000 people have been displaced in Idlib because of the government onslaught since December 15.

Meanwhile, five more Turkish soldiers were killed on Saturday during their operation against Kurdish militia in Syria.
