In Libya, gunmen shot down a helicopter with the French military on board

Reports from Libya come that militants from the Islamist group Benghazi Brigade shot down a military helicopter. The report says that on board the helicopter were French special forces. At the same time there is an obvious confusion with the number of soldiers on board the helicopter. RIA News With reference to Libyan sources, reports that there were two NATO military.

It is known that the militants fired a helicopter from large-caliber machine guns and MANPADS. As a result of a rocket of a portable anti-aircraft missile system, the crew and the helicopter landing force were killed.

According to sources from social networks, the rotorcraft was hit three days ago. On board were French special forces, one Jordanian and representatives of the armed forces of Libya itself. Militants who shot down a helicopter claim that it was Russian-made. And in the messages of jihadzis it says that this is Mi-35 - an upgraded version of Mi-24.

It should be noted that in Libya at the moment there is no unified army and unified government. Conflicting among themselves "Cabinet" at once three. Each of them insists on its legitimacy. Against this background, more and more areas are being transferred under the control of militants of various groups, including ISIS.

          Cry Libyans for Muammar, cry that you fell for that x ... that "Democratic friends" hung on your ears, cry for the killed country and the destroyed population ... Eh Muammar, Muammar made three mistakes you got into the financial European cesspool, sponsored Sarkozy did not suppress the abomination that was thrown into your country ...
          In any case, the name of Muammar will be justified, because already now the Libyans with their blood and tears are washing away the dirt that has ruined the name of this man. Rest in peace Muammar, your killers have already died or will soon die in obscurity for they will devour what they themselves have nurtured.

          If you believe the conspiracy theory, then the West is seeking this. It is easier to control and manipulate groups than a state with power structures, state. bodies and being a subject of international law. Feed one gang, put another on a hungry rally, and if they are completely out of control, the special forces raid will remind you of whose hands they fed. And this is easier than negotiating at the interstate level, and it is cheaper to send special forces by helicopter than thousands of troops.
          So what they wanted and achieved. And snot on the account of the fact that civil wars started there is for the layman. Acts of terrorism in Europe are even good for them, anti-terrorism laws can be introduced, and EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE under the pretext of combating terror.

          The main thing is not to unite into one democratic strong until the next "democrat Gaddafi" appears. The states are calm, to teach everyone to live according to the law - "after us, even a flood, we restored democracy."

      Something I have vague doubts about the photo ... but is it the wreckage of the KHABIBULIN crew helicopter.
      The terrain is not shown ... there is no binding ... there is no evidence ... there is no recognition of the French government either ...

          So I take a picture of some sort of crashed military aircraft (without license plate fragments and landscape background) and start to PR myself or some
          fictitious illegal military formation.
          Like today I was shot down by a military aircraft with special forces DELTA, SAS, SOCOMD, EKO Cobra, etc.
          for greater credibility, you can toss up fictional details from the lives of these commandos.

          In general, there is where the fantasies roam and throw it all to the Internet.
          Why not the famous London sharashka with one journalist scribbler ... who lies like a little rascal first grader without batting an eye.

          In fact, any information must be verified from various independent sources ...
          these are the basics of the information war ... which, incidentally, is waged by terrorists and militants (besides states) of all stripes.

            The problem is that you will be taking photos from the Internet. Unless, of course, you go to the crash sites, and do not take original photos, without further publishing them on the network. It will not be difficult to identify such a photo, since there are not so many different "Cobras", mi-35s and other "Apaches" and that would break a lot, so that the photographic material could not be identified without reference to the place of the event.
            That is why babakhs do not particularly fantasize about the hundreds of destroyed T-90s. Dill, of course, fantasize about the "Armata" and the wreckage of dozens of Tu-95s, but in the era of smartphones, their fantasies do not even cause a smile.

              This is if you are lying on the couch, yes, the photos will be from an Internet. But if you’re an action movie who managed to shoot down one helicopter / tank / plane, you can rivet photos for hundreds of throws, drag fragments across the desert and take them off!
              Photos without reference to the terrain, and the numbers of equipment / units, by definition, are not reliable! There’s no reason to hide the crash site — everyone already knows it.

                You can of course google how many Mi-35s have been sold for export and where. But the dashboard in the photo is not from the Mi-35. (most likely a photo from not a primary source)

        Indeed, especially in the bottom photo. If this is the dashboard of a helicopter, then the instruments on it are another 50-60 years old. They pinned the campaign what happened.

      Pokemon caught.

      Israel has already forbidden its soldiers to engage in such garbage, by the way.
      On Thursday, July 14, the IDF's information security department issued a warning regarding Pokemon GO, the Haaretz website reported.

      The warning states that during the game the application can collect information about objects located next to the player. Therefore, IDF soldiers are prohibited from catching Pokemon on the territory of military bases.

      Whether it was mi35 or mi-35 in this news does not really matter. because in Syria the main thing was to establish that the destroyed side belonged to the Russian Air Force, despite all the assurances of the Moscow Region that the board was Syrian. There is initially no talk about the destroyed helicopter of the Russian VKS.
