Late on June 22, air defense systems deployed at Russia’s Hmeimim air base in Syria were activated to repel what believed to be a massive drone attack. According to local sources, over 20 exlosions were reported in the airspace near the Russian airbase.

Meanwhile, Syria’s state-run news agency SANA reported that Syrian air defenses were activated in the Jableh area in the province of Latakia. Russia’s Hmeimim air base is located in the very same province.

Earlier in June 2020, the Russian military revealed that Tor short-range surface-to-air missile systems have downed more than 45 unmanned aerial vehicles launched by militants.

“Since the start of combat duty, the calculations of the Tor combat vehicles targeted over 45 UAVs crafted by militants,” the chief of the Russian Air Defense Forces Lieutenant General Alexander Leonov said.

These are the militant UAVs downed by Tor systems only. The toal number of militant UAVs neutralized by Russian forces has reportedly overcome 200.

Send 200 drones to Al Tanf, every day.

The videos of US occupation forces firing rifles as they run for their lives from drones will make great TV.

My advises to Putin, Rouhani and XI is, that this is the right strategic moment where S-300 in the hands of Assad will have maximum effect on defense of the Sovjet Union and CCCP with maximum outcome!


I hope Russia atop pleasing Turkey and allows SAA to go to offensive action on Idlib.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. By that definition al-cia-da/CIAisis are insane. Just sayin…
