Drone Strikes Targeted Militant Positions In Syria’s Greater Idlib

Late on September 11, a series of drone strikes targeted militants’ positions in the southern part of the Greater Idlib region in northwestern Syria.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), an unidentified drone carried out at least ten airstrikes on militants’ positions on the outskirt of the town of al-Bara, which is located near the main front-line with the Syrian Arab Army.

“So far, there has been no information on any human losses [as a result of the drone strikes],” the monitoring group said in a report.

While the SOHR suggested that the drone was Iranian, other opposition sources said it was in fact Russian. As for now, there is no sufficient information to identify the drone.

A series of drone strikes has targeted Greater Idlib militants this year. No side has claimed responsibility for the strikes, yet. Last April, a drone strike claimed the life of a prominent tank hunter known as “Maher Tow.”

Iran is known to operate armed Muhajir-6 drones in Syria. Russia may be also operating such systems in the country. During the “Army-2020” forum, the Russian military showcased a number of combat drones and light weight munitions for the first time.

Iranian and Russian combat drones will likely pose a real threat to the remaining militants in Greater Idlib in any future confrontation.
