On Friday evening, the Jaysh al-Islam announced targeting a loyalist helicopter with a 9K33 Osa anti-aircraft system missile which they captured from loyalist forces few years earlier.

The Official Spokesman of the Jaysh al-Islam posted on its Telegram account: "After efforts by experts nad specialists, we were able to reactivate the 9K33 Osa anti-aircraft missile system and launch a missile that hit a helicopter."

The Jaysh al-Islam broadcasted a video that shows the moment of the 9K33 Osa missile launching.

Earlier, the Jaysh al-Islam shot down seven Russian helicopters with the 9K33 Osa anti-aircraft missile system. On 2012, the Jaysh al-Islam captured the Osa system from the Batchura air defense base in Eastern Ghouta.

Russian and loyalist forces launched a military campaign on civilians' residential districts in Eastern Ghouta, which the loyalist forces have besieged for years. The military campaign killed and injured thousands of civilians, most of them women and children, and widely destroyed infrastructure in the area.
