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.
