The Nusra Front and Islamic factions capture a helicopter’s crew in Idlib

SOHR knew that the Nusra Front and Islamic factions could capture at least 4 members of  helicopter’s crew, including the captain who is from the neighborhood of al- Khaldeyyi in Homs and his assistant,  after emergency landing due to technical failure near the village of Frika located in the northwest of the city of Ma’arret al- Nu’man. One member of the crew was executed by shooting him near the place where the helicopter landed. They dragged the captives to the posts of the Nusra Front and Islamic factions while the destiny of another member of the helicopter’s crew is still unknown. It is noted that the number of members of the crew is 6 at least.
