Army General Command: Crime of Jaish al-Islam against Pilot Nawras Hassan will not go unpunished

Damascus, SANA-General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced that armed terrorist groups have committed an appalling crime, killing pilot Lieutenant Colonel Nawras Hassan.

Hassan managed to land with a parachute in an area controlled by Jaish al-Islam terrorists after his warplane which was on a training mission fell down in the eastern countryside of Damascus earlier today due to a technical failure, according to a military source.

In a statement of which SANA received a copy, the General Command blasted the crime as “a cowardly act that runs counter to all international and humanitarian conventions and laws in treating captives.”

The command added that it exerted “intensive efforts via reconciliation committees to save the life of the pilot, but to no avail,” adding that the crime proves beyond doubt the criminal nature of these terrorist groups and belies the claims of their backers that they are “moderate opposition.”

The Command concluded its statement by vowing that Jaish al-Islam terrorist group will be severely punished for this heinous crime, affirming that the Syrian army will continue to strike terrorism until restoring security and stability to the entire Syrian soil.
