BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:53 P.M.) – Ahrar al-Sham have claimed to have shot down a helicopter near Salma in Al-Akrad Mountain in the eastern countryside of Latakia.

Opposition sources are saying there is a lot of movement by the Russian air force to try and locate the downed helicopter.

It is not clear at that this stage whether there are any fatalities from the crash.

The militant group revealed that the helicopter was downed by heavy machine gun fire, where they were operating in this border region near Turkey.

SCALP-EG directly in Enverdogan-Pasha office would be enough… for a beginning… unless he prefers ASMP-A but there wouldn’t be a lot left of Ankara after this…

I sincerely hope that the claim proves to be a false one. The SAA and Russian forces first of all defend humanity against terrorism.

I thank AMN for this liberal policy and its unfiltered fresh and factual news.

Well, any way, as soon as one pretends having downed an aircraft and not being able to show the wreckage, it’s suspicious 😀
And actually, there are statistically more % of chances that if a wreckage is shown, it was due to mechanical failure than some air defences 😀

Absolutely. Either wreckage or merely damaged – more or less. Which can be repaired. But that is an old problem.

p.s. IMHO The valuable part of a plane is the trained pilot. Takes years and lots of money.

The “big boys” flying from Russia or Iran will soon pay them scorched earth visit. Hope jihadis are ready for that pounding.

Your wish came true. I just read about the air raids at the border of Turkey.

One of the merits of AMN – they post unfiltered fresh news.

p.s. Better early and corrected later. IMHO.

And thank You comrade, for posting the update at 14.20.
