A ‘Turkmen’ who claimed to have killed a Russian pilot after downing the Russian Su-24 jet on Tuesday, is actually a Turkish ultranationalist and son of a former Turkish mayor.
Syrian rebel commander Alparslan Celik is the son of a mayor of a Keban municipality in Turkey’s Elazig province.
The mayor’s son is also a member of The Grey Wolves, an ultranationalist group who commit various political murders.
Celik came under spotlight after he announced that as the two Russian pilots descended by parachute after the Su-24 jet was downed by Turkish military, both were shot dead by Turkmen forces on Tuesday.
A graphic video posted earlier on social media purported to show a Russian pilot lying on the ground surrounded by a group of armed militants.
