The Syrian terrorist group “Jaysh al-Islam” has claimed responsibility for the crash of the Russian An-26 in Syria.
According to the Lebanese edition of Ad-Diyar , the militants issued a statement alleging that they shot down the plane 100 meters from the ground during its approach to land, in retaliation for “Russia’s actions in East Guta.”
“We responded by firing on the plane with 30 Russian soldiers aboard, who came to kill the Syrians,” the group said.
As a result of the crash of the Russian An-26 in Syria , 39 people were killed. The Russian Ministry of Defense previously reported that the plane was not shot down but suffered a malfunction.
