New footage, released by GerillaTv, seems to show a (PKK) Kurdish fighter shooting down a Turkish “AH-1” Cobra chopper, using a Russian anti-aircraft “9K38 Igla” system.

According to the original source, the video took place on 13 may 2016, in southeast Turkey, near the Iraqi-Turkish border.

Meanwhile, Turkish authorities have said that they lost a military helicopter near the Iraqi border due to a technical failure.

Honestly, probably directly from the Turkish military who have a large number of 9K38 Igla. Either that or any country that borders Turkey, since all operate 9K38s.

Not death… But life in prison for war crimes : we’re european so we’re against death penalty… But it’s clear that if some kurd takes revenge about any of his family member killed by Erdog’s pawns, we won’t regret such a moron!

If you consider things like that, all muslims are shirk because Q’ran heretic and blasphemes the Holy Scriptures… And Muhammad was even not a prophet… Well, in fact, if he really existed and there are NO historical proof he really did.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sven_Kalisch

BTW, Earth is not flat, Q’ran lies about how the s*x of a baby happens, evolution is scientifically proven, stars were created long before there were mountains on Earth, etc etc etc… So you’ve been lured in the biggest hoax of all times!

I said a few weeks ago that south east Turkey will become part of a kurdish state. This is only the beginning. Erdog has slept with the devil and there’s a high price for it.
Unfortunately, many will lose their lives, health, physical integrity or properties because of this Gollum… :/

This will be used by usa to lie and blame Syria or Iran supporting pkk. pkk can get it from anywhere pesmarga fsa or similar. fsa nusra uses kornet atgm along with tow but they have these by thusands since they are supported. This can be bought easily by blackmarket and pkk does not have atgms at least very limited numbers looking at their attacks mostly ieds.

Not really : Igla’s flight ceiling is only 3500m and its range about 5km. It was issued 35y ago so may easily jammed but it’s clear that now, there’s a little problem for choppers and CAS aircrafts.

It’s not cool for the pilots : no way to bail out from a chopper except the Kamov Ka-52, but it was high time that the kurds received ManPADS as Turkey currently bombs them instead of ISIS… It sends a clear message to the boss from Bosphorus that from now, it will be harder to crack on kurdish people as he used to do…
