M23 rebel group has claimed the shooting down of the helicopter of Congolese Army (FARDC) following an air raid.

A statement released by M23 on Friday reads that the helicopter was shot down around 3:00 p.m. as the helicopter raided its bases in Kabindi and Tshengereo.

The raid follows the recent announcement by M23 that it has captured the areas on Friday morning.

Bunagana town at the border between DRC and Uganda has been also under full control of M23.

M23 resumed fighting with Congolese Army in March this year accusing the country of failure to implement peace accords signed in 2013.
