MADRID, Feb. 14 (EUROPE PRESS) –
Turkish military forces have shot down a helicopter on Friday by a helicopter of the forces of the regime that presides over Bashar al Assad in northwestern Syria, as reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The London-based organization, which has a wide network of activists in Syrian territory, has said that the aircraft has been shot down “by Turkish forces” with “a guided missile” and that it has fallen in a rural area northwest of the province of Aleppo, within the zone of relaxation agreed by Russia and Turkey in September 2018.
The helicopter of the Syrian regime forces had taken off minutes before the Mama's military airport. The Observatory has ensured that two mutilated bodies have been found in the place of the impact of the aircraft.
The demolition of the helicopter comes at a time of escalating tension between the forces of the Syrian regime and Turkish troops deployed in northern Syria and after Tuesday rebel forces shot down another Syrian military helicopter in the Idlib region ending the life of Its three occupants. The helicopter was shot down after it launched explosive barrels in various locations in the region.
