Syria - video of the surface-to-air Igla-S (SA-24) cache + downed Mi-8 helicopter

As I was too exited by the magnitude of the development, I made a previous upload without waiting for a video. but here it is, what appears to be the same cache discussed in the previous post (and there are also some small arms and a some Sagger AT-3 anti tank missiles).

Notice many of the items are actually training and mock-ups which have no military value for the FSA (unless they want to practice their aiming), but there are some definitely real and deadly missiles there.

The second thing, though not the first helicopter to be shot down in the this civil war, this one was shot yesterday in Ghouta, Damascus, which is where the SA-24's were captured and presumably still are. coincidence? maybe, maybe not. no more information at this point.

No videos of those bad boys in use yet, but I have a feeling that those will come soon.
