The fighter plane was shot down by Manpad, a man-portable air-defense system. The pilot ejected but was killed by militants on the ground.

A Syrian special forces operation is reportedly underway in the area where the jet was downed by a MANPAD rocket on Saturday. The goal is to find evidence allowing the weapon to be traced to its origin.
“The group that had the MANPAD has been destroyed by the Russian Air Force. Now the Syrian commandos are working on the ground. If they find elements of that launcher, we could trace its serial number and establish its origin to the factory in a few days, find out how it got there,” the Russian MP said.
