Assad regime’s colonel pilot Khaled Saeed, who was captured on Tuesday by al-Nusra Front immediately after downing his fighter in Aleppo southern countryside, was handed to opposition fighters’ Ahrar al-Sham, Orient News correspondent Shaher Samak said. 

Al-Nusra Front said that it responded to Ahrar al-Sham’s demand of handing the pilot because he was captured in Ahrar al-Sham-controlled areas.

It is worthy to note that when the terrorist was captured, he was in a good condition, and he was taken to a field hospital for treatment from minor wounds he suffered.

Some eye witnesses said that a thermal guided missile was used in downing the jet, but Orient News correspondent did not confirm or deny the story.
