UPDATE 2: The Russian Defense Ministry has commented the ISIS claims saying that the Mi-28 Russian combat chopper made an emergency landing due to malfunction. The Mi-28’s crew is not hurt. The service members were brought to an airfield.

UPDATE: Pro-opposition media activists claim that multiple airstrikes hit the alleged crash site area.

Early on October 6, reports appeared that ISIS allegedly downed an unknown helicopter near Wadi al-Lozaib near the Salamiyah highway in the eastern Hama countryside.

Following the reports, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed that ISIS members downed  a “Russian helicopter” near Shaykh Hilal in eastern Hama.

No additional details or photos providing from the alleged crash site are available now.

    suddenly isis is gaining its satanic powers from illegitimate yankees but will soon gain momentum to be totally defeated … it is a matter of time … God always wins

    we rae witnessing a huge offensive in multiple fronts ….ISIS was underestimated i think….they have infinite resources and great information-tactics, thanks to their advisors.

    • Derapage

      As long as there is free passage with Saudi Arabia via IRAQ, dogs and pigs will come in Syria

      • χρηστος

        And yet the Saudi king makes deals with Russia to buy weapons…..

    • 888mladen .

      Lack of commitment by RU and Iran. They should have sent large contingent of troupes to secure the back of SAA. You can never say it’s done until it’s really done. Wishful thinking is very dangerous.

      • χρηστος

        its obvious that we are not talking about a couple of rebels fighting with weapons from the 50’s. They are very well organized, endless amounts of resources and no brains. their armoury contains weapons that even half the worlds’ countries dont have combined.

        “You can never say it’s done until it’s really done”

    • John Whitehot

      we are witnessing a large offensive by the SAA on Mayadeen and ISIS got its spine snapped in the latest two weeks.

      • χρηστος

        yes indeed but the suply line along the DEZ highway is lost.

        • John Whitehot

          today the road is cleared and reopened according to this website.

          • χρηστος

            great news

      its logical to understand!
      Whilst the US is rushing to take the Omar oil fields and attempt to create a buffer between the Iraqi and Syrian borders, they are ordering isis (as well as supporting them with intel and military aid) to attack the SAA to slow it down!
      There is so much proof the US supports ISIS!
      Soooooo much proof!

      PROOF!

      1. (Aug 18) Brett McGurk meets with ISIS elders

      2. (Aug 22) Report: “ISIS turns to US as endgame begins in Raqqa”

      Suddenly after the US gets an agreement with ISIS, this is reported by the Russian MOD:

      The Russian Defense Ministry posted aerial footage showing US equipment deployed at ISIS positions north of Deir Ezzor city.

      In a post on its Facebook page, the Ministry said US Special Operations Forces units enable US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) units to smoothly advance through the ISIS formations.

      Facing no resistance of the ISIS militants, the SDF units are advancing along the left shore of the Euphrates towards Deir Ezzor.

      “The aerial photographs, taken on September 8-12, 2017 in the areas of Daesh troops’ deployment, detected a big number of US Hummer armored vehicles, used by the US Army’s special forces,” the ministry wrote on its Facebook page.

      The Defense Ministry added that the footage clearly showed that the units of US Army’s special forces were deployed in the footholds previously set up by ISIS militants. However, no signs of ongoing clashes with terrorists, as well as shell craters left after the coalition’s airstrikes were seen.

      Despite the strongholds of the US armed forces being located where Daesh militants are currently deployed, there are not even signs of the organization of a battle outpost. This shows that all the US servicemen who are currently there, feel completely safe in the areas under the terrorists control,” the ministry outlined.

      So it all falls into a perfect timeline!

      1.August 18 the US panics and makes a DEAL or ORDERS ISIS handlers to make way for the US backed forces as the SAA is gaining ground FAST! SAA surrounds ISIS and creates 2 pockets in central Syria and gains ground towards DeZ!

      2. By September 3 the SAA is extremely close to DeZ with massive gains in just 2 weeks!!!

      3. September 8, PROOF US special forces have bases within isis territory as SDF forces face ZERO RESISTANCE as they head towards DeZ!

  • Thegr8rambino

    Well at least the servicemen are OK, would like to know cause of crash tho

  • John Whitehot

    the Mi-28 was escorting a Mi-8 that was full of officers from the reconciliation center.

    If the ragheaded scum was telling the truth, why didn’t it target the transport instead of the escort?
