BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – A photo shared on social media this week showed Russian and U.S. military choppers coming across one another over the skies of Syria.
In the photo shared on social media, a Russian Mi-35 chopper was seen in the vicinity of a U.S. AH-46 Apache helicopter in the northern region of Syria, where both forces are currently operating.
It is not clear from the picture below when the photo was taken; however, it was most likely a recent picture, as all standoffs and conflicts between the Russian and U.S. forces have been previously reported.

Since a tense standoff between the U.S. and Russian forces earlier this year, the two world powers have been using their military choppers to conduct patrols across northern and northeastern Syria.
