    • @KarlJaspers they did announce a no fly zone before you can guess who or what is being carried in those planes

    • @KarlJaspers
      the FSA declared that they will shoot down civilian aircrafts.
      "In a video sent to Al Jazeera, they warned civilians against boarding commercial flights"

    • @KarlJaspers Shooting Civilian Aircraft in is a HUGE CRIME, All of the attackers should be punished according to Shariah law. Civilians either muslims or non muslims should not be attacked at any ANY COST.

      "You shall not kill any person - for God has made life sacred - except in the course of justice. ....." 17:33 QURAN

      Only Fighting soldiers can be attacked....All civilian attackers should be hanged.

    • @Jeff1989 That shit makes no sense ... you are gullible and very shallow taught. A very small portion of anti-Assad are al qaeda.... FSA is mostly Syrian rebels fighting for their own freedom in Syria, to vote for a new president instead of a dictator tyrant who won't leave after the people of Syria wanted him to go.

      You are wrong, read a newspaper and dont be so gullible with things you read online (especially when they have an agenda)

      i read the newspapers and online and they say they are the good guys but if you watch the videos of the FSA here on liveleak i say al qaida

    • @Togu No, we are denying them aid if you had 5 seconds to google. There are very small portions of terrorist islamists who want Assad out for only religious fanatic purposes... 10% OR SO FOR EXAMPLE. The other 90% is just rebels fighting to get Assad out of their country. The 10% of real terrorists make the 90% good guys look bad in the FSA.... thats the reality of why Assad is still there. If nato helped with the US, the FSA would win in only 1 week, thats a solid fact. We would totally own Rus More..

    • @Togu Western leaders are actively funding these al qaida fighters because their Israeli puppet masters want this strong, secular and modern Iranian ally to be turned into turmoil so Israel can attack Iran. I hope these Western leaders stand trial for treason.

    • @Barry-the-Zealot Not to mention Hezbollah's role in this. A radicalist islamist terror-group from Libanon that claimed to fight occupation, being forced in by Iran to participate and destroy foreign radicalist islamist terror-groups in a country where they themselves are now the occupiers. Oh the irony...

    • @Atomic58 So if you saw an Iranian cargo ship headed to give supplies to North korea, you dont think we should shoot them down?

      This is what that plane is....delivering cargo (confirmed iranian cargo plane by comments above with pics of exact same plane). to Assad...... so they are hence trying to stop (more than likely) weapons and ammo to aid their enemies..... get the picture? They are not terrorists.. the plane is.

      By supporting the plane, you are supporting Iran you idiot! I am from More..

  • Wow, just no end to the senselessness.

    Trying to bring down a jumbo civilian 747 ( regardless of content ) is a crime against humanity.
    Out of range and not even leading their AKs to boot, bloodthirsty idiots.

    Its just a matter of time they'll get their hands on surplus Libyan shoulder fired SAMs and
    bring one of these sky giants down with how many on board?

    Usually I don't pick sides, but the FSA just got on my shit-list for the rest of the conflict.

    • @Flood_Visine Thats an IRANIAN cargo ship you fool, they are aiding Assad and since thats a cargo plane (oddly no labels just says "CARGO'' if you see the linked comments proving its iranian and cargo)

      By hating FSA, you are supporting RUSSIA IRAN and Assad the dictator tyrant who won't leave since he is a rich baby and it gives him all the power since he is nominated president by family line.... get the picture fool, read a book for once.

    • @HermosaOfSelsdon Its NOT civilian. It's an IRANIAN "cargo" plane. Confirmed above by comments. There is likely weapons to help Assad in that plane, no doubt. They are trying to shoot down an ENEMY plane, not civilian you sheep

      I don't support either side, not
      The dictator Assad, SAA, Russia, Iran, or the FSA, Jihadists, and every other form of fundamentalist hardliners.
      What I do support is universal common decency ,
      And unless you can PROVE that this 747 was full of weapons and ammo and not humanitarian supplies and food and aid workers, I'll stand by my statement that what we are witnessing on this video is a medieval level bloodlust that cannot be justified.

  • That is an old 747-200, looked like it had Iranian markings on it. Likely bringing weapons in to aid Assad and possible Revolutionary Guard soldiers. I'm going to take a guess and say the FSA understood this and that's why the shot at the plane, as feeble as an attempt as that was.

    • @PeeBUponHim
      Yup. It's an Iranian Air Force cargo plane bringing in weapons and equipment for Assad.

    • @czechmate67 I think it's more about the ballistics involved, you simply cannot hit a 747 with an AK. The effective range on those rifles is 300m I believe, no way they able to hit such a distant jet.

  • Far too far away to get a solid worthwhile hit using those caveman Muslim tactics.....they dont even know about trajectory or the fact they need to fire in front of the moving aircraft...even then i doubt anyone of those muslim Neanderthals could hit it even if it was 10 times bigger!...still as muslim cowards who are brought up to kill the defenceless and show no mercy they had to try i guess....
