The Syrian pilot whose aircraft was shot down by Turkey on Sunday vowed to keep fighting against the terrorists who are waging a war against his government.
Talking to the Syrian TV in the hospital, the pilot said he was carrying out a mission of pursuing terrorists within Syrian territories, more than 7 kilometers away from the borders.Pilot of Syrian aircraft downed by Turkey on Sunday
After arriving at the target’s location, establishing visual contact, and carrying out his mission, he turned around to return to base when a rocket fired by a Turkish aircraft hit his aircraft, he said, according to official news agency, SANA.
The pilot asserted his target was within Syrian territories and he parachuted inside Syrian territories.
I will return to them in good health condition, high morale, strong willpower, and resolution like iron,” he said, vowing to keep fighting until the last terrorist in Syria is killed.
