The truth behind the fall of a US helicopter in Hasaka
SDC sources explained, “it was noted that while the helicopter was flying over Al-Yaarubiyah in Hasaka countryside, it lost balance with a thin line of smoke coming from it which caused it to descend.”
While the US “international coalition” helicopter was descending little by little, the pilot managed to land in an area near Kherbet Be’er in Al-Yaarubiyah. At this time, American military vehicles appeared and surrounded the helicopter.
It has not been known exactly whether the helicopter was targeted in any way, which caused smoke to come from it and make it lose its balance; however, the circulated information, according to sources was, “There was an abrupt failure which forced the helicopter to make a hard emergency landing due to losing balance.”
After the landing and surrounding the helicopter by the US military vehicles, more military reinforcement arrived in patrols around the village fearing of more attacks on the helicopter or any other vehicle.
