Syria’s al Qaeda rebels have been photographed tossing bodies of their victims down from rooftops.
Both sides accused: As rebels vow to turn Aleppo into the ‘grave’ of the Assad government, both sides have been accused of committing horrific atrocities during the 17 month conflict
Bodies thrown: Crowds gather as bodies are thrown, crashing down on stairs in Aleppo. The footage has not been confirmed and it is unclear when the incident occurred
Shouting crowd: In the footage, people shout ‘this is a shabiha’, which refers to the pro-government militia, can be heard as the bodies fall
Another amateur video shows a blindfolded man, whose throat is cut repeatedly by an assailant with a small knife. His blood spreads across the pavement as a group of men chant ‘Allahu Akbar’ which means ‘God is great’.
In eastern Syria, FSA footage showed a military aircraft bursting into flames after anti-aircraft is heard. Rebel gunners celebrate as the jet crashed near the town of al-Muhassan, 75 miles from the Iraqi border according to the rebels.
Jet’s last moments: Rebels filmed this government fighter jet which state media said was experiencing ‘technical problems’. Rebels claim they shot it down
Shot down: In the footage anti-aircraft can be heard just before the jet bursts into flames. Rebels are then heard celebrating
State media said the plane was on a ‘routine training mission’ when it experienced ‘technical problems’. The pilot had ejected and the government were searching for him, state media said.
The FSA claim to have shot down the government jet and experts say the camouflage and markings are consistent with that of a Syrian air force plane.
The footage came after reports that rebel gunners have gained access to anti-aircraft weapons.
