ALEPPO, Syria – A Syrian MP has announced that it was Turkey that gave the weapon that shot down a Russian jet that resulted in the pilot being killed on Saturday.

Fares Shehabi, the Syrian MP for Aleppo, made the announcement on his Twitter account.

“The weapon used to target the Russian plane was supplied by Turkey to its Qaeda affiliated proxies in Syria. The order to shoot down the plane was also given by the Turkish intelligence! Erdogan is deeply involved in this crime and his proxies will pay the heavy price,” he said.

It is known that the Russian pilot landed safely next to his jet, but was swarmed by jihadists and decided to fight to the death rather than be captured alive. Full details of this can be read here.
