What really went on in the al-Bukamal battle against Isis this week http://thebea.st/29aIsMc
by @michaeldweiss

A US intervention against Nusra in Syria will have the same positive results. US clearly siding with Assad will affirm Nusra's narrative.

Jaish al-Fath take Ayn al-Ashra, Shir Qabuh, Tall al-Naqba SW Kinsibba in Akrad Mountain #Latakia countryside.

Alot more Pkm, 12/14mm machine guns were captured all over the hills, not made in to media yet. Mostly brand new ghanaim. #Lattakia

Unconfirmed reports Assad forces retreated from Ayn al-Ghazal, Marj al-Zawiya & Qasatel near M5 highway SW Kinsibba.

Nusra's rubbish.

Pilot - Maj Noures Hassan - ejected safely and was captured by the JAN.

Video of the crash site can be seen here:

He was then brought to the joint operations room (run by the JAI and the JAN), and interviewed:

And then one of the JAN idiots there executed him (i.e. shot him in the head, from behind, as can be seen here, GRAFFIC!!!).

The 'episode' left the JAI 'shocked', as they officially announced here.

Now, I am all against doing such things. If nothing else, Hassan was certainly a good potential source of intel.

Tragically, somebody there was probably longing for any kind of revenge after so much death and destruction caused by such like Hassan. After all, it's not for nothing I wrote here:
Quote:
In the words of several of SyAAF pilots, there is no other priority but to — literally — “cause mass destruction” and “burn Sunnis.”
That's precisely what no less but 5 of them (Hassan's colleagues) have mentioned to me in different interviews over the last two months.

Unsurprisingly, even somebody as blind as the US admin is meanwile caling Assadist flying service a criminal enterprise.
