Exclusive: Turkish or pro-Turkish forces downed a second Syrian helicopter (video)
DAMASCUS, (BM) – A few hours ago, Turkish troops, and according to other sources, we are talking about pro-Turkish troops, destroyed a Syrian military helicopter in the front area in the province of Idlib, carrying out a reconnaissance and combat mission, delivering strikes of the so-called “Barrel bombs” on the fortifications of the militants, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, acording local sources.
As a result of a missile entering a helicopter, the latter was completely engulfed in flames – all the Syrian soldiers on board were killed.
On the presented video frames, you can see that the Syrian Air Force combat vehicle is almost completely engulfed in fire, while the integrity of its fuselage was violated even before it hit the ground – the aircraft began to fall apart in the air, which confirms the information that the Turkish troops hit the Syrian helicopter anti-aircraft missile – either from short-range air defense systems, or from MANPADS.
Ankara has not yet taken responsibility for the destruction of the Syrian military helicopter, however, this may be due primarily to the fact that in this case, the Syrian army and the Russian military can begin to strike at the positions of the Turkish troops, which accordingly will entail huge losses among the latter .
It is known that the destruction of the Syrian Air Force helicopter was originally reported by the Ibaa information publication, which belongs to the terrorists Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, which was the reason to believe that militants are behind the destruction of the helicopter.
Given the incident, experts believe that air attacks on terrorists in Idlib will not be temporarily delivered, however, over the past hour and a half, the Syrian army has significantly increased artillery fire.
