The attack on Russia’s Mi-35 multi-role combat helicopter by ISIS near the city of Palmyra in the Syrian province of Homs was a very bad idea for the ISIS terrorist group.
Following the incident, the Russian Aerospace Forces’ attack helicopters, including the Mil Mi-24 (NATO reporting name: Hind) and Mil Mi-28N (NATO reporting name: Havoc), swarmed in the province, purging the terrorist group’s manpower and military equipment.
Russian attack helicopters operate in the areas of Huwaysis village, Shaer gas field, Mustadira gas field and in the area of Arak.
The developments near the ancient city of Palmyra is barely covered by the mainstream media. However, successull operations of the Syrian army and the Russian military in the area are one of the factors preventing the ISIS terrorist group from active offensive operations across the country.
