The Syrian Air Force helicopter has been shot down by rebels in the area of Nayrab in eastern Idlib. A dozen videos have been circulating on social media on Tuesday and they apparently show a Syrian air force helicopter being downed by rebels with ground-to-air missiles thought to have been supplied by Turkey in recent days.

Turkey, which had been supporting and arming the opposition, sent in its own troops with tanks and heavy weaponry over the weekend in response to Syrian regime shelling of its observation points.
