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.
