Videos Show A Jet Shot Down In Mohassen, Deir ez-Zor

It seems that the helicopter filmed being shot down near Damascus yesterday wasn't the only aircraft shot down.  Videos have been posted from Mohassen, Deir Ez Zor, showing evidence of a jet that appears to have been shot down.  The first video shows what activists claim to be the smoke coming from the crashed jet


The next video shows the parachute and helmet of the pilot


Next a video of what activist claim is a helicopter searching for the pilot


There's then four videos showing the remains of the aircraft, the first showing an engine


The next two show various pieces of debris


With a fourth showing the undercarriage


How it was shot down is unclear, and this isn't the first time a jet has been shot down in Mohassen, with the opposition downing a jet in August, and capturing it's pilot.
