DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:50 P.M.) – Moments ago, Jaish Al-Izza (Free Syrian Army group) claimed it had gunned down a Russian chopper over the northern countryside of Hama.

According to a bulletin released by the aforementioned FSA group on Tuesday evening, its fighters launched an anti-tank missile into the skies and struck a Russian chopper, reportedly bringing it down south of Khattab town.

Jaish Al-Izza notably stressed it used a TOW missile launcher; this sophisticated weapon is manufactured in the US and has been supplied generously to FSA factions across Syria.

Well Russia has not confirmed the incident occurred as of yet.

Secondly the Tow missiles supplied to various groups in Syria dont come solely from the US. Saudi Arabia has shipped Tow missiles into Syria as well. The groups using US delivered Tow's are suppose to document their firing and return spent casings (not sure the reason behind this. Possibly for incidents like the one being reported).

Either way not good. As the 2 sides get closer I think we are going to see more incidents like this. This comes on the heels of a Russian General being killed in combat while directing Syrian forces.

I'm glad the U.S. didn't do it. Rebels for the US and for Russia aren't as skilled as their handler sponsors.

Russia has been bombing the s--- out of that area recently. Probably looking to blow up all the military vehicles Turkey has been sending them.
