Syrian military helicopter is shot down by Turkey-backed rebels in Idlib, a day after Assad’s forces killed five Turkish soldiers

Video shows a Russian-made Mi-17 helicopter in flames somewhere near the town of Nerab, which was recently captured by government troops, before it breaks up and plummets from the sky.

The attack comes a day after five Turkish soldiers were killed in a government attack – prompting Ankara to retaliate with strikes on 115 government positions.
