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.
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 moral, strong willpower, and resolution like iron,” he said, vowing to keep fighting until the last terrorist in Syria is killed.
