‘Rebels armed by U.S. Sen. John McCain’
A Russian rescue helicopter has been destroyed after landing, by Syrian rebels while searching for pilots missing after Turkey downed a Russian fighter jet. According to the UK mirror, “A Syrian insurgent group, which uses U.S. made Tow missiles, said its fighters hit the helicopter with an anti-tank missile.” The Syrian rebels have been identified as the Free Syrian Army, the same rebels who were met and armed by Arizona Senator John McCain.
Vladimir Putin earlier warned Turkey of “significant consequences” after the Russian plane was shot down.
The Russian President also said quote, “the loss today is a stab in the back, carried out by the accomplices of terrorists.”
Sources claim the two pilots, whom the Rescue helicopter was searching for, appear to be dead.
The actions of the Free Syrian Army are consistent with John McCain’s remarks on Fox news endorsing the arming and shooting down of Russian military aircraft.
This is fast escalating into a super power showdown between the United States and NATO against Putin’s Russia backed by China and Iran.
We’ll continue to monitor these developments and provide updates as more information becomes available.
