A Syrian helicopter shot down by rebels, says the opposition. Reuters cannot independently verify the video, but footage posted online Monday purports to show rebels downing the aircraft over Menagh airport, near Aleppo. And this is what they may have used to bring it down. A rebel fighter from Aleppo's air defense battalion, which claimed responsibility for the attack, says it's a thermal rocket captured from Assad forces.
