Turkish proxies shot down a Syrian military helicopter in Idlib


Against the backdrop of the successes of the Syrian Arab army, the units of which for the first time since 2012 established full control over the M5 highway connecting Damascus and Aleppo, fierceness is growing from militants entrenched in Idlib.


Western agencies have spread information that militants of the so-called "armed opposition" shot down a Mi-8 helicopter of the Syrian army.

According to Reuters, the incident occurred near the city of Nairab. The report said that the militants fired two rockets from MANPADS on the helicopter, after which the helicopter caught fire.

Later, a video appeared on the network, shot by pro-Turkish militants, which shows that the helicopter crew showed courage and high professionalism, taking the helicopter off and trying to bring down the flames.

However, the fire turned out to be stronger, and the helicopter literally fell apart in the air and collapsed to the ground, leaving the pilots no chance of escape.


Recall that the Syrian army is currently fighting in the province of Idlib, freeing it from militants trying to hide behind the Turkish military.

Earlier, we wrote that the Turkish authorities had a tantrum, and they turned to the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance with a request to help in Idlib.

    It seems that Turkey has embarked on a confrontation with the Russian Federation. What objectively confirm her actions in support of anti-Saddam forces, as well as her anti-Russian position on the issue of Crimea. At the same time, Ankara is actively conducting anti-American activities. Arabs and Iran have always been cool towards Turkey. Therefore, it is not clear what Erdogan is counting on. Turkey is not so strong as to play such risky games on its own. Moreover, under the current Presidents of the USA and the Russian Federation.

    ... the militants fired two missiles from MANPADS on the helicopter, after which the helicopter caught fire.

    - Yes, obviously professionals are fighting on the side of the militants ...

    Later, a video appeared on the network, shot by pro-Turkish militants, which shows that the helicopter crew showed courage and high professionalism, taking the helicopter off and trying to bring down the flames.

    - I feel sorry for the pilots, of course ... - But why write nonsense ... - the helicopter was completely uncontrollable and, falling apart ... just fell ... - And the ceiling at Mi-8 is 5 km ... - And MANPADS "Stinger", "needle", "willow" do not reach such a height ... - The crew flew at a lower altitude; and for some reason did not shoot heat traps ...
    - It follows from all that Turkey can afford absolutely everything and those who are under its protection can also not fear anyone - they will also go unpunished ...

    Yes, they were shot down, most likely, by the Turks, they simply turned the arrows to proxies.

    In general: Arrangements violated, the broads did not go away - you can iron. From the heart and to the maximum without any awkward pauses.
