I saw the following 2012 photo of a light ground attack jet used by the Syrian regime in an attack on Tel Rafat:

enter image description here

I do not recognize the type, however, and it does not appear to be any of the regular ex-Soviet types normally flown by the Syrian air force (MiG-29, MiG-25, MiG-23, MiG-21, Su-24, Su-22). Does anybody know what it is?

Its a Syrian Aero L-39 Albatros.

You can see the same image (just a bit sooner on the second missle lauch) when searching Google for Syrian L-39 (second result).
