IDLIB, Syria – Russian airstrikes have showed no respite to the terrorist responsible for killing a hero pilot.
34-year-old Major Filipov, the Su-25 pilot shot down in Syria who then blew himself up with a grenade rather than be killed by militants, was posthumously awarded the ‘Hero of Russia’ medal. A video of his funeral can be seen here.
In a deservedly unforgiving manner, Russian airstrikes killed Walid Al-Najeeb, Ahmad Al-Nazem and Yousef Al-Hasan who were involved in the killing of Major Filipov.
The Russian fighting jet was brought down in Maarat Al-Nouman in Syria’s northwest Idlib province.
