Syrian rebels shot down a Russian warplane on February 3 and killed its pilot on the ground after he ejected from the plane, Russia's Defense Ministry and Syrian rebels said. Video shared on social media showed what appeared to be the burning wreckage of the Russian Su-25 plane. A jihadist group called Hayat Tahrir al-Sham claimed responsibility, saying a shoulder-launched missile had been used. (Reuters/Social media)
