The Syrian military added that the plane's pilot is now missing. According to the Syrian statement, the plane was carrying out operations against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) [which is why the US shot it down] in the countryside around Raqqa when it was targeted, leading to a crash and the loss of the pilot, who is currently missing. "This attack comes at a time when the Syrian Arab army and its allies are advancing in the fight against ISIS terrorists who are being defeated in the Syrian desert in more ways than one," the statement read.
