Turkish military helicopter shot down in Syria during operation against US-backed Kurdish forces

Sat Feb 10, 2018 4:02 pm

A Turkish military helicopter has been shot down in northern Syria during an operation against US-backed Kurdish forces, according to Turkey's President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Speaking in Istanbul, Mr Erdoğan did not mention the name of the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units or YPG but said those responsible would pay for their actions.

Things are taking a turn for the worst in Syria again. Does anyone know what kind of helicopter has been downed? H-60 a presume.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Again with the nonsense rhetoric. You're dropping bombs on them and are surprised when they shoot back ?

And an Israeli F-16 was also shot down today, it appears to have been downed by a Russian made Syrian operated system.

Raid on an Iranian (drone) camp in Syria, so probably yes a Russian made system.
