BEIRUT - Syrian rebels aired footage on Tuesday of burnt-out tanks as well as a helicopter engulfed in smoke and flames which they said they had destroyed after it landed in a field in northern Idlib province carrying Syrian special forces.

An amateur video posted on the Internet showed a military helicopter with its blades spinning as if it had just landed. "Special forces are being deployed from a helicopter to kill civilians in (the town) of Mar Dibsi," a voice off screen says breathlessly to the sound of gunfire.

A second video, which appears to be from the same town, shows the helicopter in flames, with a white rotor blade poking out of the plumes of smoke.
