The Russian military says one of its helicopters in Syria has come under rebel fire and made an emergency landing, but no crew members were hurt.

The military's Reconciliation Center in Syria says the helicopter came under fire Thursday in the province of Hama while on a mission to deliver humanitarian aid and made an emergency landing about 40 kilometers northwest of the city of Palmyra.

It says the landing site came under rebel fire, but the crew was unhurt. A rescue helicopter quickly arrived to evacuate the crew to the Hemeimeem air base in Syria's coastal province of Latakia used by the Russian military.
