Videos circulating on social media show the aircraft engulfed in flames before plummeting to the ground. Additionally, separate footage captures two pilots descending from the plane using parachutes.

In another video, an injured man dressed in army uniform appears disoriented and is seen in the back of a car, seemingly held captive by armed individuals who are celebrating.

Local residents in the area have reported intense fighting, which has occurred on the second day of a ceasefire intended to reduce clashes, although it has not fully ceased the hostilities.

The ceasefire aims to facilitate the delivery of much-needed aid to the region, but its effectiveness has been limited thus far. Humanitarian workers are awaiting security permits and guarantees to commence their operations.
