Idlib Ceasefire Already Dead? Militants Attack Russian Air Base With Drones

ILLUSTRATIVE

Late on September 3, Idlib militants launched several armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at Russia’s Hmeimim airbase in western Syria.

The Russian Defense Ministry reported that Russian forces had intercepted all the UAVs. The attack caused no casualties or damage at the airbase.

The attack took place just a few days after the start of the ceasefire in the Idlib zone on August 31. It demonstrates that despite diplomatic efforts by the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance, Idlib militant groups are set to continue escalating the situation in the area.

      No no Putin is the best President what about the ceasefire.

      • viktor ziv

        My vote goes to ceasefires, prepare for making another pocket, liberate pocket, make another ceasefires, prepare, make another pocket, etc. Rather then carpet bombing whole Idlib. There are still children, women, elderly people.

          Much agreed Viktor

          Finally something who understands things rather then react hysterically. We should leave the histrionics to our enemies, not engage in them ourselves.

        • Xoli Xoli

          I noted your point.My argument is to forcefully go in or else terrorists will hide for ever behind the innocent. But thanks for caring salute.

    Second Anaximander, there’s no such thing as an ceasefire.

  • Icarus Tanović

    They have never had de-escalation in theirs heads, they have never had that plans, nor they want that.
    They want War and aggression.

    So who was supposed to be surprised, Erdogan perhaps, maybe Putin, no one else was.

    • gustavo

      Not my friend, nobody but fools are surprise about this.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Putin knew that Erdogan will attack him and Erdogan knew that Putin will give him chance to reshape and attack.Friends in crime so the beat goes on.

  • Boycott-Israel!

    Those who have patience will win at the end! But better to level-ground the terrorist camp ASAP.

    It died in Khan Shaykhun operation.

    This again proves how little actual control Turkey has over these headchoppers. Which of course is fully understandable. One does not control the devil, you can only hope that for as long as you need him your interests coincide. And firmly prepare for the moment when he will inevitably turn on you.

    • gustavo

      What ? Turkey has control of terrorists, and it supports them a lot. Whatever the terrorists do is because is (secretly) allowed by Turkey. Advance weapons and drons are getting from Turkey. Turkey is just playing double moral with Russia.

  • Balázs Jávorszky

    I honestly don’t understand these axxholes. With a ceasefire that holds they might get some kind of legitimacy and a useful base for talks. But with these continuous violations they make their presence at most temporary, they will be kicked out. Actually, any deal would eventually hang on the goodwill of the Russians, these regular (and completely useless) drone attacks ensure a firm Russian “no” for any permanent settlement.

    • gustavo

      You has just missed the point. Terrorists are not in Syria to make deals or to accept ceasefires. Terrorists are there to continue destroying Syria and are supported by USA-Israel-NATO with the help of Jordan-Saudis-Qatar – Turkey.

      • Balázs Jávorszky

        Perhaps I missed, perhaps I didn’t. The USA and friends could’ve achieved a lot with talks, implicitly legitimizing the terrorists and getting a foot in the door, getting a “share” from the power in Syria. This is without firing a single bullet.

  • gustavo

    Not surprise at all, this was expected sooner or later, and there is much more to come.
