A Russian rescue team arrived in the area of Kafaria with mi-24s to extract the navigator and as they landed one of the helicopters was hit directly by an Turkmenistan opposition TOW, killing one of the Russian soldiers. After 12 hours, Syrian forces managed to rescue the pilot and take him to Russian held territory in Bassel al-Assad International Airport.
