The men reportedly regretted they hadn’t burned him on the spot. 

The video was sent by a rebel group operating in the northwestern area of Syria, where groups including the Free Syrian Army are active but Islamic State has no known presence.

Jahed Ahmad, a representative of the 10th Brigade in the Coast, the rebel group that attacked the pilots, claimed to AP that at least one of the Russian pilots was dead upon landing.

Russian Su-24 bomber was shot down by Turkish fighter jets near the Turkish-Syrian border on Tuesday.

Turkey said that it was rightfully acting to defend its sovereignty as the warplane violated its airspace and did not respond to warnings.

Moscow has denied Turkish claims, saying that its plane was downed in Syrian airspace where Russia is conducting an air operation against Islamic State and other terrorists.

Vladimir Putin called Ankara’s actions “a stab in the back delivered by accomplices of the terrorists,” adding that it will have severe consequences for relation between Russia and Turkey.
