ISIS has captured three fighter jets from Assad’s Syrian Air Force.

The reports from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says that Saddam Hussein’s former pilots are training the ISIS Jihadists how to fly them.

Civilians report seeing the fighter planes taking off and landing at the captured airport, which would probably indicate flight training.

ISIS also captured a munitions depot, in case you were wondering, which may include surface to air missiles.

The jets, possibly Mig 21 or MiG 23 models, were seized from military airports in Aleppo and Raqqa.

The training is going on at the Jarrah military airport, east of Allepo.

  1. Very effective as a terror-inducing tactic but, very expensive and complicated to maintain. Instruction is only the beginning. The engines, in fact the planes need almost constant repairs which require knowledgible mechanics. The planes require parts and more replacement parts. Skybourne, ISIS is a better target than they are on the ground.

  2. The planes need maintenance, parts,, skilled mechanics if they are to be used as regular weapons. ISIS is more kamikaze. The planes might be used to train, or as one-use bombs to destroy cities.

  3. if HAMAS FIRES ANY MORE ROCKETS AT ISRAEL,
    I HOPE THAT ISRAEL WILL SAVE BILLION OF DOLLARS AND COLLECT A FEW TONS OF PIG BLOOD AND DROP IT OVER GAZA. THOSE PIGS WOULD RUN FOR THEIR LIVES. PIG BLOOD WOULD BE A FAR MORE "DANGEROUS" WEAPON AS FAR AS THE TERRORISTS ARE CONCERNED.
    GAZA WOULD BE CLEARED OF EVERY SWINE.
    BUT THEN, WE WOULD GET BAN MOON, PILLAY, BRITISH GOVERMENT TO CONDEMN ISRAEL FOR USING "DISPRPORTIONAL" WEAPONS.

  4. Frank Smith, you are obviously another tea party hate filled Republican!! I think the degrading name calling just gave you away, Republicans are so good at that, arent you?

  5. But Alan Kardon, you have to admit that no president EVER has been terrorized like President Bush. Even from his first day in office he wasnt a American citizen, for how long? You can call unracial or he is just not a good president but you cannot say he has not been treated with the hatred unlike any other president from the republican party.Our last president wasnt smart at all, ut he wasnt victimized constantly. The fe
    ublican party didnt even invite him to their last presidental convention. He embarassed his own party.. .

    Wrong. No one terrorizes him because up until now nearly the entire press corps buoyed and backed him. Now, when his incompetence and/or treachery (still can't tell which) is obvious to the entire world, the general press asks questions only the Tea Party asked years ago. Your retort is ridiculous. Versions of people like you in the press corps threw rhetorical question upon rhetorical question at W. But, now, thousands of nerve gas war heads are re-discovered in Iraq. And, still, people like you deny that these are weapons of mass destruction. Obama used people like you and Alinskian news hacks to destroy the reputations of people to get to the top job where, now, he demonstrates his absolute lack of judgement and the ability to tell the truth each day, when he isn't playing golf while Americans are beheaded. You fool and tool for the Evil One.

  7. MY eyes are steadfastly on the Lord God of Israel Who sits on His Throne and laughs at the folly of men.
    It is written: No Weapon formed against you (Israel) shall prosper – The Keeper of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps.
    Let her enemies – wherever and whoever they are – do their damnest…
    The One Who created mankind .. The One Who made an eternal Covenant with Abraham and his descendants – sits on His throne and laughs!
