Al Arabiya: Russian military helicopter shot down in northern Syria


Arab media report a Russian military helicopter shot down in northern Syria.

The Al-Arabiya news agency reports that a Russian military helicopter was destroyed in northern Syria, which was flying in the area of ​​the Turkish military operation "Olive" branch, directed against the Syrian Kurds. It is reported that a Russian military helicopter was shot down on the outskirts of the Syrian province of Hasaka, however, no other details were provided by the Arab news agency Al-Arabiya.

"Turkish troops attacked a Russian helicopter flying in the skies over Hasaka province"- said in the message.

This, apparently, is about one of two helicopters of the Russian Aerospace Forces, previously seen in the area of ​​the settlement of Al-Dardara, as reported by the Syrian news agency North Press Agency. Nevertheless, the publication reported that Russian helicopters successfully fired heat traps, as a result of which the latter managed to evade Turkish missiles. At the same time, the leadership of the Russian Aerospace Forces refused to comment on the data on this matter.

There is no documentary evidence or refutation of this information at the moment.
