Armed Drone Swarm Attacks Strategic Syrian Airbase In Northern Hama (Video, Photos)

A squadron of armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) attacked Hama’s airbase in the outskirt of the city’s center in the late hours of May 22.

Pro-government sources said that the Syrian Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) intercepted the UAVs and managed to shoot down all of them. According to the sources, the airbase didn’t sustain any damage as a result of the attack.

However, the Hama airbase was not the only target of the attack. The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) confirmed that at least one UAV attacked the Zara’a power plant in southern Hama causing “extensive damage to the plant’s equipment.”

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, yet. However, pro-movement sources accused Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its Turkish-backed allies, who launched a large-scale attack on the SAA in northern Hama earlier.

The terrorist group is known to be manufacturing and operating this type DIY UAVs, which is usually armed with locally-made small projectiles. The wreckage of a UAV that was recently downed in northern Hama revealed that this model may have been modified to attack its target by hitting it directly, like suicide drones.

The attack on Hama airbase will likely escalate the tension around Idlib, where terrorist groups are still operating within the demilitarized zone.

    These drone attack videos are never entertaining because the attack are always done at night! How i wish night vision cameras existed on cell phones lol

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    These drones should be sent to resistance movements around the world to be reversed engineered to help defend human freedom in the face of the faults song of globalism.

    • Chris Gr

      Globalism? Since your comments seem to be thought provoking and you like to do research then research about the connections of the Ba’ath party to Fabian Society of Bertrand Russell and Fabian Society was the FRONT of the NWO.

      The main purpose of the Ba’athists in the Levant has been the replacement of the ancient nations of Lebanese (Phoenicians/Canaanites), Arameans, Assyrians, Chaldeans with a secular/atheist pseudo-Arab identity.

      • abuqahwa

        Oh and there I was thinking that it was the Sunni Wahhabi jihadi terrorists , backed by Saudi Arabia and NATO who want to replace “the ancient nations of Lebanese (Phoenecians/Canaanites) Arameans, Assyrians, Chaldeans ” plus Christians, Druze, Alawites with their sectarian Sunni Islamofascism. Silly me I must have been dreaming watching those bearded psychos screaming Allah Akbar as they cut the throats of their Syrian victims.

        • Chris Gr

          Both play the same agenda. Divide and conquer.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        i wonder what make single cells as your self coming out in public declaring how stupid they are and ignorant then the answer come to me it must be all about the 1 shekel they pay you per post. I guess it what keep your parents away from street corners bagging so they have enough for your next dosage.

        • Real Anti-Racist Action

          If I were getting ‘1 shekel per post’ then why would I be posting that Jews caused the Holodomor?
          Why would I proclaim that Israel is guilty of genocide in Palestine and Lebanon and Syria?
          Why would I claim that Zionist own and run the Pentagon and US media?
          Perhaps because I tell the truth and shine the light on the guilty you wish to try and demonize me.
          Would that not be the work of a Zionist? To try and taint me because I call out Israel and their globalist-domination of wealth and financial institutions.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            let me see. calling the czar army white terrorists is one of the reasons. Subconscious is a bitch and also half kow2ledge of historical fact in combination is worst than that. Up tp this point I have not seen you shine any light on anything as to why you say what you saying that is left to be seen. If you really are uneducated to historical fact then go get educated then come and debate the matter. This site is not offered for debates where records and documentation can be presented in order to open your eyes and see why I said what I said.

            As your claim I try to taint you………. you need no help you doing it all by your self for any one with true knowledge to see that.

  • You can call me Al

    This feels like the rabid dog terrorist cells (backed into a corner) are panicking somewhat. This is the time, for a huge clear operation. Kick the scum back to Turkey where they belong.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      I dont think the russians want this, other wise this turk backed terrorist would have had the same end as the rest of them. When an army become ineffective it is because the ones who make the strategies for them, have second and third agendas.

      • You can call me Al

        I think the Turks are still with the US myself.

        They cannot be forced out of the F-35 project as they were a founding member. Surely Russia knows this ?.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          I have little doubt that the turks at the critical moment will go back to their masters but is not US the one who has backed them up and help them since their creation, but UK. The moment all of you understand that a colony is just the military arm of the ones who created her the sooner you manage to follow what is happening for real.

    • abuqahwa

      Yes but we need to kick back TURKEY to Turkey – it is the Turkish invasion and occupation of all northern Syria west of Euphrates and right down to spitting distance from Hama city for chrissakes which is the real problem – get rid of the Turks, lot easier said than done of course.

  • Rafik Chauhan

    ITs Russia Fault who allowed Turkey observastion post and now they are supplying and supporting giving logistic support to HTS and other Terriost Group. SAA is noew alone and warn this Erdogn Terriost to remove soldier immediately or it will be attack . SAA did mistake by giving time to this whabhi scumbag. Partly also iran fault. By agreeing ceasfire in idlib.

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      And Iran agreed to resolution 2254 and a new constitution for Syria, which is the same as stabbing Assad in the back. Putin and Iran are playing games with Assad’s future but the media either aren’t aware of it or failing to report in it.

    • abuqahwa

      Agree 100 %

    • Rob

      This is a strong signal to Syrian and Russian forces to eliminate these American proxies as soon as possible. These American proxies have destroyed the future of Syrian children. They have no right to live any more in Syria.

    • Rob

      American forces laugh that they have created very good job for Syrian and Russian forces to not think about American baby Israel.

      • neil barron

        Palestinians are doing genocide to Palestinians.
        That’s the extent of their intelligence next they’ll come after you.
        Their nothing but jihadis in asses wrappings.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    The Russians keep bombing the rebels drone factories but the rebels keep coming back with more, LOL, keep banging your head up against that brick wall President Putin, with your thick head it’s just a matter of time before it does eventually come crashing down, a couple of years should do the trick.
    Why do so many of my fellow SF commentators say I’m wrong to insist Putin should just attack Idlib and get rid if the rebels altogether, despite Erdogan’s, NATO’S and the US’s and Israeli’s objections, it’s not like he hasn’t got an excuse, they’re trying to kill Russian soldiers, what more of a reason does he need. To be honest I would’ve thought it would’ve been the best reason he had to attack them, and totally legal according to international law, Russia’s not there illegally, but the rebels and Erdogan are.

    • Xoli Xoli

      For Years USA used to financed Russia secretly to break Russian obstacles against USA NATO. That is why Putin wish to restore ties completely even if this mean to destabilize,destroy Russia allies.But USA will never ever restore or normalizing ties with Russia. Because USA wants war to reboost from current financial collapse.Unfortunately Russian friends,Iran,Venezuela, Cuba,North Korea, Syria, Belarus will be on receiving end.Why is Russia Putin arming its allies enemies with more advanced weapons systems.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        About the only time I know the US financed Russia was when Yeltsin was in power, and that was to help Yeltsin the drunkard destroy the country from within, lucky for Russia Putin put a stop to that pronto.
        Putin’s formed a new trading block with his old enemy the Saudis, and together they’re slowly but surely driving up world fuel prices and getting very rich doing it. But apart from that Putin also has Venezuela Iran and Libya involved too, and together they’re also ensuring that China will have resource security that can’t be compromised by any outside influences, especially the US, a trading block that makes money and also protects China, I think that’s what the US is the most worried about, China’s powerful and wealthy but doesn’t have resource security for their war machine, they do buy heaps from Russia, but being as clever as they are don’t want to put all their eggs in the one basket, that would give the Russians to much power over them.
        I think Trump would like to normalize relations with Russia but certain parties within the government wont allow it, the US is now like conjoined twins, 2 heads and one body and no consensus in what they want to do or where they want to go. I’m hoping Trump wins out.
        The only thing I know the Russians are doing with their new advanced weapons, is not giving them to Syria, at least not enough of them.

    • Joe Dickson

      Russia does not have significant combat troops in Syria, just enough for protection of its own assets and training. The SAA is the only one with the manpower to clear out tens of thousands of Turkish backed rebels.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        You’re right, the Russians only have the bare essentials for the job at hand, that’s why I keep asserting what many experts, and some official Russian statements allude to, the war in syria isn’t costing the Russians that much at all. The Russians themselves keep boasting about all the valuable combat experience their high level commanders are getting, and all the testing they can now do in real life combat situations, “invaluable experience that money can’t buy” is a quote often heard from the Russians. Official Russian statements claim the bulk of the Syrian campaign expenses are resourced from the existing military research and training budget, hence the term cost neutral, I have no reason to doubt them, though many of my fellow commentators say that’s a false claim, but that’s only because they don’t read much else apart from SF.
        A war that is practically cost neutral if not entirely cost neutral, and delivers real combat training and testing situations, why would Putin be in a hurry to end that, the Russian military might be testing out anti drone and anti rocket defence systems at their airbase right now, that might help explain why the rebels are attacking them every single day with rockets or drones, they’re actually assisting the Russians in developing better defence measures LOL.
        Russia needs a combat capable ground force in Syria, and also needs to use it, the war needs to end and Putin himself needs to end it. I used to blame Erdogan for the continuation of the Syrian war, I now realize I was wrong, it’s Putin who doesn’t want the war to end, he has many different reasons to let it continue, least of all combat experience for his troops.

        • Joe Dickson

          The Russian people are ready for the troops to come home. The only thing preventing them is clearing out Idlib. It is the ATGMs provided by Turkey that have paralyzed the Tiger forces with fear.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            The sooner the better for everyone concerned, but that’s up to Putin in the end, it can’t happen unless he agrees, and he hasn’t so far unfortunately.

  • klove and light

    lollololol
    i love that sentence
    “The attack on Hama airbase will likely escalate the tension around Idlib, where terrorist groups are still operating within the demilitarized zone.”

    demilitarized Zone lolol im cracking up

    bs Agreements day in and day out .. absolutley pathetic

    bs ceasefires day in and day out…… ridiculous

    the fucking enemy has ZERO airforce

    SAA and Russian airforce have 100% Control of the skies…….

    now either they have the worst pilots ever to sit in an airplane……-sarcasm out-

    or this is a game of slowly but surely bleeding SAA out……..just as i have been writing here for months

  • klove and light

    it is the bigger Picture…an Agenda that the big Players are following……and they are all , including USA,uk,russia etc… following the SAME AGENDA!!!
    and it is all for THEIR MASTERS……THE JEW!!

    • Toronto Tonto

      Was your daddy a jew .

  • Xoli Xoli

    As long as Erdogan interferes in Syrian Idlib terrorists issues lot of Syrian soldiers will die.If Russia Putin could have says Russian air defences are for both Syrian and Russians then Turkey and Israel couldn’t have been causes trouble.But Russia distance it self from Syria.Turkeys s-400 air defence will be aim against Iran and Syria.

  • Toronto Tonto

    Is that russias new drone ???.

    • Arnte

      No bitch, that’s ukrainian air force…… jihadists, ukies, same terrorist shit.

  • Xoli Xoli

    To crush Russia Erdogan shit all USA NATO oppressed countries should apply for NATO membership, and give USA direct access to oil and gas.No free Russian airspace.Because if Putin wanted peace so dearly he would force USA NATO to leave so call allies alone and make peace with them.Then After Russia would accept and restore ties.Russia was invited by Syrian government and therefore should make deals according to Syrian government wishes.Not pleasing Erdogan because he Putin are so causes for Erdogan.Today in Syria Erdogan sons oil truck are filling up and leaving Syria every day from rebel held areas.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Or else let Russia withdraw its forces and move in Turkey .Iran and Hisbollah will sort out the mess
