Video: Rebels flood YouTube with videos of fiery Syrian helicopter crash
From the front page, click “Read More” below for a wider column width to accommodate the videos. Along with the three I’ve posted, the New York Times has more. They have several images, as well. While the helicopter burns and plummets to the ground, the rebels can be heard shouting “allahu akbar”, then open up with their guns in celebration after it crashes to the ground.
Perhaps the clearest images of the helicopter plummeting down were posted by an activist from Saqba, an area about 20 minutes from central Damascus which reportedly slipped from government control some months ago.
A very brief but dramatic clip of the aircraft coming down in flames was uploaded to the JobarRev YouTube channel.
