Hayet Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a powerful anti-Assad regime in Idlib countryside, posted footage on Wednesday (August 14) of what its militants said the Assad pilot whose plane was shot down.

"My name's Lieutenant Colonel Mohammad Ahmad Suliman. I serve in the Brigade 70. While I was conducting a "Ramz Bayreq Mission" in the east Khan Sheikhoun, my plane was downed. I'm now captured by the opposition fighters." 

The HTS spokesperson earlier said that ground defences shot down an Assad SU-22 warplane near the Tamana front. 

The Assad Alikhbaria TV confirmed that of the warplanes was downed by opposition fighters and that anti-aircraft missile was used to down it.

Hundreds of airstrikes were conducted on Idlib countryside, killing more than 1000 civilians, injuring dozens of thousands and displacing 400.000 of the population to the north of the major opposition-controlled area.
