Russian Rescue Chopper Is Shot Down Searching For Pilot (Video)

(Before It's News)


In the video below, we are likely witnessing World War III unfolding right in front of us. Tuesday, a Russian jet was just over the Syrian border when it was downed by F16 Fighting Falcon jets belonging to Turkey. Given the already “tense” relationship between Russia and the West, the “situation” is significantly larger than just the shooting down one Russian fighter jet. In the video below, it you will see that the Russian rescue helicopter sent out to look for the downed pilot was also shot down. For those at home not keeping up, Turkey is a NATO ally. A war with one NATO ally means a war with ALL NATO allies. That is one of the key purposes of NATO. Does anyone think Putin will just accept apologies? If, or rather when, Putin retaliates, the last war that won’t be fought with sticks and stones is probably officially underway!

Russian Rescue Chopper Shot Down



Meanwhile, the same enemy Putin is bombing the crap out of, our President is dropping pamphlets in advance telling them to scatter because a bombing run is coming. Putin has to be be coming unglued for sure. According to Freedom Outpost, one military source revealed:

“We dropped leaflets, warning the drivers to scatter.”  

“Next we strafed the area (with 30mm cannons) before then dropping bombs.”

So, now America is in the business of giving terrorists advanced warning? If only they would do the same to us. As all this is unfolding, when Americans sit down for Thanksgiving, should they be worried about a civil war brewing at home? Perhaps they should be. How many peole know Americans With AR-15’s and AK-47’s Surrounded a Texas Mosque This Week and Sent a Brutal Message to Muslims? How many know thay in several states the National Guard Has Being Called in to Block Obama’s Syrian Refugees? The situation is getting real bad, real fast!

No other option is on the table other than force to stop Obama’s actions, so states are taking action. When the question was asked, Can A Sitting US President Be Arrested, the answer is NO. He must be Impeached first, a rather lengthy process which has no chance of succeeding because of the Democrats in the Senate. So, what option is left besides civil war? I don’t know, but Americans better figure one out fast because Obama has announced he intends to import 2,224 Syrian refugees BEFORE Thanksgiving Day, not to mention there are serious suspicions about Obama illegally sneaking in Syrian refugees. 



Express reports:

In the disturbing film released by the Free Syrian Army rebel group a missile can be seen traveling towards the stricken chopper, which has landed in a mountainous area, before it explodes in a huge fireball.  

Moments earlier a single soldier is seen assembling an American made TOW portable anti-tank missile launcher on a hillside before taking aim at the helicopter. 

A narrator triumphantly gloats over the top of the video exclaiming “Allahu Akbar” – meaning “God is great” – as the missile hits and mangled wreckage from the craft is blasted into the air.

Earlier the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said that the search and rescue helicopter had been forced to make an emergency landing after being shot at with a missile by Syrian rebels. 

It was not immediately clear whether or not any Russian military personnel were in the helicopter at the time of the explosion. The shocking footage was posted on Twitter by an expert analyst in the Middle East but has not been independently verified. 

The Russian helicopter had been scrambled to the crash scene to search for survivors after the jet was shot down following 10 warnings in five minutes to leave Turkish airspace, a Turkish military official has said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed that the search and rescue helicopter was placed under fire by Syrian rebels.

The helicopter pilot was forced into a landing after being hit by a rocket fired by rebels.

The British-based organization said that the helicopter had made an emergency landing in the province of Latakia

It comes as rebel forces said that bodies of both pilots have been recovered, Al Jazeera reported.

The Russian jet was just over the Syrian border when it was downed by F16 Fighting Falcon jets belonging to Turkey, the Turkish official said.

But the Russian Defense Ministry said the plane had not violated Turkey’s airspace and was flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called an emergency meeting over the downing of the jet and unverified sources have claimed Russia is currently sending a warship across the Dardenelles from the Black Sea into the Mediterranean.

NATO has announced it will be holding an extraordinary session at 4.30pm GMT after Turkey requested it following the incident. 

Two pilots managed to eject from the jet and were seen landing with the help of parachutes.

The jet is reported to be a Russian Su-24 flown by a pair of Russian pilots, with one believed to have been captured by Syrian rebels from the Alweya Al-Ashar (Brigade of the 10th) which consists of Turkmen with strong links to Turkey.

A Kremlin spokesman said it was a “very serious incident” but that it was too early to draw conclusions.

Footage from private Turkish broadcaster Haberturk TV showed the warplane going down in flames in a woodland area, a long plume of smoke trailing behind it. The plane went down in area known by Turks as “Turkmen Mountain”, it said.

He was initially thought to be alive but rebels have now said they have recovered both pilots’ bodies.

The second pilot is believed to have died in the crash after footage was released by Syrian rebels appearing to show them crowding around a body saying “Allahu Akbar” – God is Great in Arabic.

A Turkish official said: “The data we have is very clear. There were two planes approaching our border, we warned them as they were getting too close.

“We warned them to avoid entering Turkish airspace before they did, and we warned them many times. Our findings show clearly that Turkish airspace was violated multiple times. And they violated it knowingly,” the official said.

A second official said the incident was not an action against any specific country but a move to defend Turkey’s sovereign territory within its rules of engagement.

Russia is currently fighting in Syria with President Bashar al-Assad’s troops against the rebels and Islamic State (ISIS).

Sources say the brigade has now launched “a counter-offensive” against President Bashar and Russian troops in a bid to take back the Turkman mountains.

  • The Syrian Observatory for Human rights is news reporting from the back bedroom 3 bed house of a one man keyboard army who lives in coventry and has not put a foot inside Syria for the past ten years, he’s a paid troll for our puppet news papers and most likly knows less about whats going on in Syrai than you or me but will say anthing he is told to say.

    One person was killed as the helicopter was shoot down so thats six eyes that Turkey now owes Russia from today.

    Sure NATO you have a contract to support Turkey if Russia hits back but you also have a duty to protect the public from ISIS and you cannot do both things at the same time but be warned people will be on the streets if NATO sides with Turkey so punks, make my day if Russia hits back like i think they have a duty too.

    • Thank you so much for speaking out about the fact that the SOHR is a sham. I don’t know much about the matter other than the RT article I read but it makes me furious that so many Western news sources consider this jerk to be credible. Apparently even the NYT does or did at one point endorse SOHR as well.

    • a Syrian Sunni Muslim who also runs a clothes shop :lol:

  • Don’t let those Zionist fool you!! this is all going to their plan.

    We were told BRICS is the counterweight for the Rothschild owned Central Banks

    Look for yourself: EVERY MEMBER OF THE BRICS countries has a Rothschild central bank!

    Act now, Rise up.
    WE THE PEOPLE have to do this. Don’t trust the Zionists!

    They own the media
    They own the governments
    They own the money supply
    They own the education system
    They own the law system
    They own the united nations
    They own about everything.

    To them we are nothing more than goyim – animals – useless eaters.
    over 6 billion of US – useless eaters – have to go. But they are the lucky ones.
    The survivors will be controlled, indefinately, from the cradle to the grave.

    Would you let this happen to you? Would you let this happen to your children?
    I made my choice: HELL, NO

    History repeats itself!
