Drone Strikes Target Militant Positions In Syria’s Greater Idlib

Donate

Late on May 31, an unidentified unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) carried out a series of airstrikes on militants’ positions in the al-Zawiya Mount in southern Idlib.

According to opposition sources, the airstrikes targeted the eastern part of al-Zayiya and the outskirt of the town of Benin.

Some activists claimed that the UCAV was belonging to the Russian Aerospace Forces. While there are numerous reports that Russia possess such capabilities, officially the Russian military has not announced it operates UCAVs.

In the last few months, a series of drones strikes targeted militants in Greater Idlib. A week ago, a field commander of the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation, known as Hisham Abu Ahmad, was killed in the region’s southern part as a result of a drone strike.

No side has claimed responsibility for any of the recent strikes so far. However, militants usually blame Russia and Iran for them.

Tensions are mounting in Greater Idlib, where Turkey deployed thousands of troops as well as loads of heavy weapons. According to opposition sources, the Syrian Arab Army is now amassing a strike force in the region, possibly to launch a new operation soon.

    Russia and Iran need to ramp up the SAA’s drone numbers with a steady supply of new equipment. It’s quite worrisome to see Turks & ISIS/al-Qaeda Jewhadis getting to make decisions over who uses the M4 highway, and such a precedent doesn’t look well for the situation in east and south Syria where the US Zioterrorists, ISIS, and others roam freely as lords of the land.

      Russia and iran should provide syria with modern air defense systems. That sould be the top priority.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        The SAA has been in anti-terrorist operations since 2011, it has come out of it with flying colors as a cohesive force with not even a company sized defection. Now it is in a consolidation phase as I have been posting over the years. Largely thanks to Russian Federation air support and Iranian and Hezbollah multi-facted support the SAA is far more lethal, agile and cohesive today as it in reality has fought the combined forces of Amercunts/NATO, Turkeys as Zionists. Today, the SAA is being rearmed by both Russia and Iran and its air defences and airforce are both being revamped. This week the Syrian airforce received the latest Mig 29 SMT that are far superior to Americunt F-16 and F-15 flying junk.

        The Syrian military is now able to shoot down enemy F-16 fighter jets that enter their territory, the Russian publication media reported on Sunday.

        However, experts pay attention to the fact that the rearmament of the Syrian Air Force may indicate that in the near future Syria may become one of the countries of the Middle East where the most modern fighters are present, since the same MiG-29s, especially their modernized versions, significantly exceed the capabilities of F-16 fighters, which are the main combat aircraft of Syrians two major enemies Turkey and the Zionist entity. Syria is also integrating and synchronizing its weaponry with its historic ally Iran. Both countries now operate large numbers of Mig 29 SMT. Syrian, Iranian and Russian pilots now operate out of joint airbases and train in combined interception and ground attack environments.

      Newly upgraded Iranian Mig 29 SMT with The Vympel NPO R-77 missile Russian medium-range, active radar homing air-to-air missile considered to be the most effective air superiority weapon with 98% kill probability. The Syrian Migs now have the same R-27 and R77 AAM synchronized with IRIAF.

    “A week ago, a field commander of the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation, known as Hisham Abu Ahmad, was killed in the region’s southern part as a result of a drone strike.”

    But according to the ceasefire arrangements this isn’t allowed, Turkish backed opposition are supposed to be safe from attack, it’s only HTS and Al Nusra fighters that can be legally targeted without breaking the ceasefire, shhh, don’t say anything, Erdogan might not even notice.

    It’s time to start throwing the plague victims corpse’s over the enemies walls [not coronavirus victims], and time to poison their waterwells, and it’s time to burn their crops and kill their livestock as well, since there’s nothing else better the SAA can do right now, they may as well be at least halfway productive and do what they can.
