Rumors: Russian Military Helicopter Crashes In Syria’s Northern Hama

Donate

Pro-opposition activists and media outlets are spreading a rumor that on December 31 a Russian military helicopter crashed in the northern Hama countryside as a result of a technical failure. Some sources went further and even claimed that 7 Russian military servicemembers died in the incident.

The helicopter allegedly crashed near the village of Umm al-Tayyar. However, no opposition source was able to provide photos or videos confriming the incident.

One of the pro-opposition media outlets, eldorar.com, even used a photo of US Apache attack helicopter to illustrate its claims.

    I don’t know the truth in this matter. However, it is clear that in the
    hazardous business of war there will be accidents and losses. These
    thing are regrettable but there is no shame in them.

      I hope so.

      • Tudor Miron

        Happy 2018 to you and those around you :)

        • FlorianGeyer

          And to you as well.
          2018 will likely be a year of great change.
          The US is in panic mode now at home and abroad and a wounded beast is at its most dangerous then.

    • obidiah_slope

      Lot of it about……

    • PizzaPineapple

      Yes the picture this pro-opposition media shared was a crashed helicopter in early december or even longer ago.

      • John Mason

        Understandable why the ‘opposition’ is losing. To win a war you must have a reasonable amount of intelligence, this statement from them shows that they are seriously lacking in that department.

  • World_Eye

    I Mean what would they get of spreading fake news, what ?

    • FlorianGeyer

      The US Coalition of ‘fakery’ get what they always seek with Fake News, obfuscation that is accepted as fact by those who just accept things as Face Value and then they return to their chosen form of insouciance.

      • Mother Russia invented fake news, nice try!

        • FlorianGeyer

          Fake news was ‘invented’ from the first days when Man worshipped the Gods. Its just that today the USA is very adept at it. I suppose that’s a skill learned from Israel Peter.

          • Tony B.

            It’s extremely easy to be adept at it when the same controlling bunch also own all the media, even so-called “social media.”

          • Redadmiral

            A skill passed down from their mentors, “the Brits”.

          • Nigel Maund

            Yep! 500 years of being corrupt murderous colonialist bastards the Brits were the example the US modelled itself on. British colonial history is steeped in the blood of millions of poor Africans, Asians, Indigenous Americans and Aborigines and the misery wrought by slavery for commercial gain by its so called Elites and for Imperialist power. This expanded massively under the Rothschild’s financial control of the puppet British Government. Prior to the expansion of its Colonial Empire, the Brits were specialists in rape and pillage of their own peasantry who were little other than indentured serfs. The British are very nasty bunch and make no mistake, and what’s sad is that they have learned nothing from history as exemplifed by Blair’s hand in the Iraq war and the sanctions that killed 500,000 Iraqi’s – mostly children.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I do not disagree :)

          • Nigel Maund

            Thanks FG!

          • Nigel Maund

            The US have been a nation of crooks and bullshitters since 1776. They’ve just gotten a whole lot worse under their Globalist masters. The US is the most corrupt country on Earth as has no close contenders for the crown!

          • FlorianGeyer

            I suspect that in the near future it will become a crown of thorns but few will mourn the passing of US hegemony , except of course the Zionist cult.

        • Tudor Miron

          Wow! New zio troll! We should sepebrate this because this kind of creatures seem to be hard to find lately.

          • Nigel Maund

            Well said Tudor!

          • Tudor Miron

            Thanks and wish you happy 2018!

          • How many Soviets did comrade Stalin murder? Yet his propaganda machine spun it so much that he was judged by the world to be less evil than Hitler!

          • Tudor Miron

            Peter, do you believe your own words or do you lie in hope that others would believe it? Most readers of SF know that bolshevik’s 1917 revolution and mass murder of people in SU is a result of Zio Jew’s?
            That fact that your kind is doing everything they can to demonize Ivan 4th, Stalin and now Putin only shows that those statesman did best for Russia.

          • NeoLeo

            Talking about ‘propaganda’ then repeat CIA propaganda mantras… how ironic.

            Zbigniew Brzezinski once said: “To destroy the Russian ideological supports we need to equate Stalin with Hitler.” That’s exactly what US propaganda machinery is doing for decades… and sheeple believe them.

            Fake news? Read something about the spanish–american war and Hearst and Pulitzer (yes that Pulitzer, famous american journalist) they invented fake news in modern sense. Since then basically all US media are nothing but lies and propaganda.

        • Nigel Maund

          Oh Yeah! ….. and of course the US who are proven experts in this field being a nation of bullshitters as exhibited in hundreds of examples by CNN, MNBC, ABC and the main broadsheet newspapers such as the NYT, WSJ and Huff Post. Only jingoistic Yanks and the mentally challenged beleive anything the US MSM says anymore; i.e. credibility = zero.

          • Wow, am I that important when I comment I get no likes at all but lots of response? Maybe I should start a twitter account then add you boys so you all follow me, cool huh?

            Boy, the anti-western comments here reeks of ignorance, if Moscow is that great why don’t you all go live in mother Russia?

            This website is a big example of fake news, needs to be shutdown!

          • John Whitehot

            “Boy, the anti-western comments here reeks of ignorance, if Moscow is that great why don’t you all go live in mother Russia?”

            How can it get more stupid than this?
            Do you even have a hint on how stupid is this phrase?

          • as

            Leave the man alone. Just kindly blocked him really.

          • zman

            Did and done.

          • Nigel Maund

            See my comments above! Enough said. The supporters of the USA, UK, KSA and Israel are a rapidly declining commodity, if indeed there’s any support left other than the jigoistic wearers of rose coloured spectacles brainwashed by your own MSM.

          • John Whitehot

            :D

            nice, but we must consider all those supporters getting paid in cents per comment.

          • zman

            No, you’re not that important…you just strike a nerve with your asinine comments, which, we all know is what you’re paid for. I do have a question though, is your other avatar mountains, jens holmes or bill wilson? I only ask because your shit all sounds the same. This avatar is getting the same treatment from me as the others…blocked. Take your BS where it’s appreciated, you’re being wasted here.

          • Nigel Maund

            No you’re clearly not! I would live in Russia given my qualifications and experience if I were young enough to make the move. You’re clearly a US troll and probably a Democrat HRC and DWS supporter. As for political and cultural ignorance lthere are few in the developed world as ignorant as the Yanks. The Brits knew this in WW2 as my parents testified and its only gotten worse. How on earth do you think your “beloved” country is so globally hated from South America to the Far East. If you believe that military might is right think again and your constant engineered wars around the planet are all beginnng to catch up with you. The next few years will underscore these points in spades.

          • Lol, am no US citizen stupido!

          • Tudor Miron

            Important? Nah, but you gave us an opportunity to push your nose into your own BS and that’s always nice.

            I feel very well being in this vast country – I’m happy to have such a Motherland. Моя Родина! But this is not about Russia, its about Humanity – ordinary people around the globe who start to realise themselves and world around them. This is happening at rapidly increasing pace and scale. One day it may happen to you – realisation that you’re are part of Humanity and not just simple consuming biorobot who’s life is driven by fear and greed.

    • John Mason

      Recognition and a steady flow of funding.

    • Tudor Miron

      If your task is to get some sort of military gain and you can’t do that? Than you just claim that you did something tangible and ask for more funding.

  • Bolter10

    Seems there are anti-aircraft missiles in Idlib.

    • John Mason

      Quite a few by other reports.

  • electron

    Whats going on in Harasta?

    • PZIVJ

      Fierce fighting was reported as the Jihadist where trying to flank the armored vehicle base, and then the SAA sent in a counter attack. Situation may be fluid, I have not read a further update.
      GODSPEED SAA AND A BETTER NEW YEAR !

    • dutchnational

      Rebels report they have completely cut off the base and are besieging SAA within the base (tweet on World on Alert) That contradicts with SAA receiving reinforcements but could be a development of today. Reports are also that another group send significant reinforcements to AAS

      • Tudor Miron

        Duchy… stop posting your dreams, please. No one is interested to hear about your sexual fantasies.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          you should accept other opinions, bloody commie!

      • John Whitehot

        I see, it seems that new years celebrations have gotten to your brain.

        hope the damage is not permanent, get well soon.

        • Graeme Rymill

          looks like dutchnational has it 90% true wouldn’t you say? AMN are describing the SAA as being beseiged.

          Colonel Nizar Fandi [SAA] stated “to the besieged Syrian troops at the vehicle depot base that ‘we’re coming to liberate you.’ ”

          https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/video-coming-liberate-syrian-commander-declares-besieged-troops-east-damascus/

          It seems you are having some difficulties recently in assessing the accuracy of information…. I am not saying though that the problem is related to brain damage….

          • John Whitehot

            actually, roughing up the dutch a little is almost a joke, you know like those made in barracks.

            You however, seem to display a more serious case as you’ve been aimlessly wandering the boards for hours trying to come up with anything that could possibly rensemble Anti-Assad “points”.

            I’m seeing that in this you have gotten desperate, and predict that soon you’ll be interrogating tea leaves and coffee grounds on where to find leads where you can say that “Assad loses” or “the Kremlin lies”.

            Considering that a few hours ago you were accusing me of being contrived because I published a pic that showed that the damage to the SU-24 wasn’t from mortars, that speak tons on your objectivity.

          • Graeme Rymill

            “you’ve been aimlessly wandering the boards for hours trying to come up
            with anything that could possibly rensemble Anti-Assad ‘points’ ”

            It is a dirty job but somebody has to do it! :-)

      • Gary Sellars

        Is there any amount of Jihadi knob-gobbling that douchenational will not stoop to?…

        What does he do with all those rials that he’s earning? Saving up to buy a wife?

      Can you honestly say where are you from?

      • zman

        Truth be known, he’s from La La Land…at least the shit he spews is. I have noticed the same as you…there is a lot of new trolls here and everywhere. Reminds me of the period of time just before the Vegas shootings. Trolls popped up everywhere just before. Now, I’m wondering if this is another harbinger of doom. At any rate, I just play whack-a-mole, they pop up, I block. Hey Tudor, a happy, prosperous and peaceful new year to you and yours and the same to Mother Russia!

        • Tudor Miron

          Thank you very much and I wish that 2018 is the best year you have ever experienced and even better years are in store for you.
          I wish well to ordinary Americans – we’re are all part of one Humanity and this Earth is like a submarine in space of hostile vacuum. If one bay/section is in trouble the rest of the boat is also in trouble even if they don’t realize it yet. We really should take care of each other rather than try to destroy ourselves (that’s what conducting wars actually is)

        • Icarus Tanović

          Now, unfortunately LA land is in the range of PRNK’S ballistic missiles. So American beloved California is on the target! And why? Just, because of same politics that came from that same state and country at global.

    • Nigel Maund

      Looks like your an defence aeronautics engineer specialising in helicopters. LOL—- or just an opinionated clown voicing an emotionally based load of rubbish! Why don’t you go back to your Marvel comics and leave the adults to comment sensibly on the site?

  • goingbrokes

    Maybe it was an Apache. The question then is whose Apache?

    • John Whitehot

      it was nothing

      • Graeme Rymill

        The Russian have now confirmed the crash and 2 pilots killed. See my other replies for more information.

  • Nigel Maund

    Most probably fake news as the Russians normally confirm these events.

  • Fake news site,begging for $$$.

  • John Whitehot

    the retarded jihadists tried to tell their lovers that God has punished the “crusaders” on the new years eve.

    And they once again prove their intellectual inferiority ignoring that Orthodox new-years eve is on another day.

    • Icarus Tanović

      That’s right, hahaha. It’s on 14th, actuality.

  • TS

    Love the picture used..

  • Do all you Russian trolls sit in the same room or do you work from home and Telegram each other? For god’s sake tovarisches, why not get out of the cellar and start looking for a real job? There’s no self-respect in this, however much you’re being paid. It’s so pathetic. You’re wasting your lives and the sunlight.

  • Also it’s time you understood that no-one in the West writes like you do or uses the phraseology that you do. You might as well be using Cyrillic letters, all you’re doing is wasting your own time and scrawling graffiti all over the web. Russia gets no honour or respect this way.
