Militants Used US-Made Rocket In Recent Attack On Russia’s Hmeimim Airbase – Media Report

Militants stationed in Greater Idlib used a US-made ground-to-ground rocket in a recent attack on the Russian Hmeimim airbase on the Syrian coast, Russian outlet Avia.Pro reported on July 19, citing ‘officials and social media reports’.

The outlet claimed that the attack took place at night time with the rocket landing in the vicinity of the Russian base.

“If US-made ground-to-ground rocket were actually used to attack the Russian Hmeimim airbase, this raises serious concerns,” the outlet’s report reads.

Avia.Pro didn’t provide any evidence proving the claims in the report. However, the outlet noted that militants’ sources are known for sharing unreliable information.

The most recent attack on Hmeimim airbase was carried out two days ago by Turkish-backed Ahrar al-Sharqiya. The group’s militants used an improved copy of the Soviet 122mm Grad rocket in the attack.

With the lack of any evidence, these claims can be considered nothing but a propaganda stunt meant to increase the tension between the U.S. and Russia in Syria.

Over the past few years, various ‘pro-opposition’ and MSM soures have released multiple speculations concerning the Russian and Iranian military presence and tensions between the two powers in Syria. Most of these reports appeared to be untrue.

Recently, a new trend appeared. Now, these sources are attempting to once again destabilize the situation in southern and eastern Syria where a relative calm appeared after the defeat of ISIS’ self-proclaimed Caliphate.

    It is hardly a surprise as NATO and US are directly supplying the terrorists via the Turkish MIT which was created by the CIA in the cold war era. The strategy is to turn Syria into a Russian quagmire. It is time Russia took the gloves off and start arming Iran with some real lethal weaponry.

      If only Russia had such EH .

        Half of their junk aircraft fallen in Syria from technical problems, still they try to bash F-35 which is selling like hot cakes

        • J Ramirez

          F35 is useless against birds, don’t believe me.. ask the Jews :}

          • occupybacon

            F-35 is not tested yet in a war. But the most used ones don’t fall for technical reasons like Russian ones

          • J Ramirez

            So you can use them for war as long as there are no birds around? WTF ;}

          • occupybacon

            Russian planes don’t even need birds to fall from the sky, because Russian pilots lives are expendable

      Iran has plenty of it’s own lethal weaponry, exceptionally good medium range ballistic missiles, very good new AA systems, lightning fast agile attack ships specifically engineered to counter the US navy, and a huge and mostly capably drone force too now, but the most lethal weapon they have in the arsenal is Hezbollah. So they could give the Turks a good run for their money if they had to, but the Turks and Iranians don’t really want to fight each other, they’re both much more concerned about the devastating US sanctions destroying their economies.

    the perpetual war – a wet dream for the disunited states of A and thus stoke the fire here and then there and then regime change and sanctions and assassinations and subvert the ordinary and just lives the world’s population has every right to expect and sure as a klucking bell that doesn’t sit well with the white house morons and the mic and cia and and and (and the squatters).

    lucky for the world there are forces around to temper the aggressive and destructive forces from the disunited states of A and the squatters, such as Russia and China and and. and truth be told, doesn’t dunny the dunce’s election meetings more and more resemble the meetings adolf hitler held in nuremberg and other places in the 1030s

    Even if the rebels did use a US made missile it would’ve most likely been a Turkish owned missile, one the Turks had bought from the US and subsequently gifted to the rebels, so they could effectively attack the Russians, just like they do with the Grad rockets and Launchers, and the heavy mortars, and the armoured fighting vehicles.
