The Syrian Kurds, as Military Review reported today in the morning news story, once again made an attempt to stone the military patrol. This is a joint patrol of Russia and Turkey, which went on the designated route in the area of the city of Kobani.
As you know, Syrian Kobani is populated mainly by Kurds, among whom there are enough supporters of a number of armed groups - from the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS) to the armed wing of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
The episode with the next stage of throwing stones at the Russian-Turkish military patrol in northern Syria attracted special attention due to the fact that this time a combat helicopter was used to counter the actions of the Kurdish population. The helicopter, of course, was not used for military purposes against civilians. The Mi-35M circled the patrol and a group of Kurdish "activists", firing heat traps (tools that are mainly designed to disorient anti-aircraft missiles). With these actions, the crew clearly tried to scare those who threw stones at military vehicles.
The Mi-35M was reduced to a height of only a few meters, but this did not make much impression on the Kurdish teenagers, who were once again used for a frankly politicized rally. They continued to run out onto the road and throw stones, including into Russian equipment. This is far from the first provocation of this kind against a patrol, which first of all ensures that unlawful acts are not committed against the local civilian population.
