BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – Last night, Al-Masdar News reported that a Russian helicopter had been shot down by rebel forces whilst on a mission over northern Hama Governorate.

The report was made based on a claim by the Free Syrian Army-linked Jaysh al-Izza militant group in which it said that one of militia’s anti-tank missile teams had engaged and destroyed a Russian attack helicopter.

At the time, Al-Masdar News could not confirm the claim.

However, according to Syria-based journalist Ibrahim Joudeh, sources in the Syrian military can confirm that no Russian attack helicopter has been shot down or damaged whilst conducting operations against over northern Hama.

This confirmation is made more believable by the fact that Jaysh al-Izza has failed to produce any photo or video evidence to back up its claim.

Hello, Florian, you are right and I’m absolutely sure the “reality” was not 6.000.000 but 6.000.001 or even more 🙂

In the Roman era the jews also used the 6***** numbers in the Torah. Back then it was 6 amazingly billion jews I think and one of the Caesars was said to have built hundreds of miles ( in our measurements) of wall with the bodies of jews.

IF that had been true ( irrespective of the numbers and reality mismatch) we would not have the jewish problem today. The 6,000,000 allegations in the 20th century were first tried in the 1920’s. It was a big FAIL.

TOW is a typical anti-tank weapon designed to destroy static or slow-moving targets. With TOW it is impossible to shoot a fast-moving helicopter. The operator would have to be a genius. 😉
