Syria - There will be trouble in Lapland tonight where emergency response sledges are being kitted out with a 'Trojan Horse' Santaclaus in retalliation for last night's attack.
Witnesses say IS jihadis shot down what appeared to be an evil-looking drone circling over Damascus despite overwhelming evidence of reindeer and stuff.
This morning the four probationer Rudolfs who had been pulling the sleigh on its Syrian test flight were beng paraded in chains around the City center by Christmas non-believers touting AK47s.
A number of large festive parcels, thought to be gift decoys stuffed with Brussels sprouts, lay scattered around the sleigh debris - clear 'evidence' of Western man's inhumanity to man.
Commenting on the sleigh downing and hostage capture the Caliph of Jihadiland said, 'Santa is toast', before ordering the reindeer's decapitation for a traditional midnight feast.
A pair of toasted bactrian camels will also be consumed.
