Islamic State terrorists shoots down Russian helicopter in Syria

The terror group’s news agency said fighters downed the chopper – understood to be an attack helicopter – near the T4 air base east of Homs.

A statement released by the Amaq Agency read: “A Russian combat helicopter is downed over T4 Airbase east of Homs.”

Russia intervened in Syria last September to help president Bashar al-Assad help defeat the crazed organisation, also known as Daesh.

Earlier today, ISIS jihadis released a series of images of their fighters allegedly operating near the airbase, which is used by Russia and Syrian government forces.

In one of the pictures a truck was shown mounted with an anti-aircraft gun.
