Mysterious Loitering Munitions Struck Militants Equipment In Syria’s Greater Idlib (Videos)

Support SouthFront

On October 30, mysterious loitering munitions struck several targets in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib, which is controlled by a number of terrorist groups.

The munitions struck targets near the towns of Kafar Takharim, Deir Sunbul, Arihah and al-Bara, which are located in the southern and northern countryside of Idlib.

Opposition sources claimed that one of the munitions struck a civilian truck. However, it was later revealed that the strike actually targeted a U.S.-made M114 howitzer that was recently supplied by Turkey to Great Idlib militants.

According to local sources, one of the strikes killed three militants of the Turkish-backed Ahrar al-Sham Movement. Many others were injured.

Opposition activists shared a photo of one of the loitering munitions which struck Greater Idlib. The munition, which had an X-shaped wing design, is identical to a type used last July in a strike on a fuel trafficking company run by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.

The activists claimed that the munitions were launched by Russian forces. Nevertheless, several experts on Twitter argued that the munitions were deployed by the Syrian Arab Army or Iranian forces.

Loitering munitions will enable pro-government forces to neutralize the militants’ valuable assets, like the weapons recently supplied by Turkey, with high-precision while posing very low risk to civilians in Greater Idlib.

Finally some modern weapon system on Syrian side.

Muslim men love them. They see themself as LOITERING MUNITIONS, when they hunt their resisting wives at home.

Condolences to the fallen CIAisis and wahabimossad operators.
May they rest in pieces…

Leif Oskar Zetterstrøm

Is only fertilizer for the soil. Nothing more.

Icarus Tanović

Good one.

Great Khan

This drone look like Iran brother use…hahhahhaa fat AmeriKan lose gun and helicopter today…

Vox Populi

This helicopter is quite expensive, so the US will have to steal more Syrian oil with their ISIS pals.

Jens Holm

No problem. Even Hesbollah use dollars.


How do you prove is an Iranian drone…bro Ali? I will be happy to know pls.

Liberal guy

Well what matters is the scums are dead along with the weapons being destroyed


Is that picture from this attack? source?
The pictures i saw earlier looked like the russian ZALA LANCET-3


Thank you for answering, it clears things up for me.

Leif Oskar Zetterstrøm

I do not care so much anymore, but I appreciate seeing religious illiterates kill each other. Is good entertainment for me.


I don’t think the SAA wanna play this game as the Rebels have proven to have better Drone capabilities and very good at creating upgraded self-made drones that are undetectable. They can easily begin targetting Assad forces as far as homs and kill scores of them. Once that door is open is opened Which is provocation and Turkey doesn’t like mind head on war to invade syria further into Damascus the Rebels should seize the chance and strike with more drones showing the SAA that they are behind in the drones game


No. The jihadis constantly use drones to attack Russian and Syrian airbases. Although the Russian airbase have electronic warfare to thank for their successes in defeating them.


The Rebels have drones capable of penetrating any russian defense and they did it on couple of occasions but due to the ceasefire they don’t want to pursue full engagement. But SAA is fair game I guess now. The Rebels are superior in building upgraded suicide drones.

Without Russia Assad wouldn’t have survived and there is nothing Iran could have done for him or can do for him


You are absolutely right regarding Assad not surviving without Russian support but to claim that the jihadis in Idlib have superior drone technology is outright lie. Unless you mean Turkish ones, because Turkey does not supply their drones to anyone in Syria. Also the “Rebels” have never, ever successfully penetrated Russian defence. Literally not even once. They have tried, many times but never been successful because their drones are kamikaze drones and need to hit their targets directly which the Russians countered using TOR M2 (Highly successful) Pantsir S-2 (Low success rate) and electronic warfare. But again, if you are referring to Turkish drones then that is another story but as I said, Turkey would never dare to supply drones to jihadis because they would eventually turn on them and the consequences globally would decimate any Turkish hope of influence.

Jens Holm

Very good writing. We all has to learn about the innovation for drones and who is who and why they are as they are according to drones.

I would like to have some drones, but my garden already is full. I have an Armata, some old Stingers and the last one alive from a village taken by ISIS a few years ago.

Me&Myself None

Are you a part of them (modetate rebels)? You seem to know quite a lot about their drone arsenals

Jens Holm

I think most here know a lot about drones and their levels down to palestinian baloons in flames.

Its a very innovative world for the moment. I Denmark we use drones for more and more things too. Some farmers with big fields can see exact how things are and handle only parts of the field. The firefighters and police use them.

2 years ago some smal island isolated by ice around it normally used a helicopter for help, but a droned delivered insulin and morfine for them.

Black Waters

0 idea of what you’re talking about.

Concrete Mike

non sense the only.superior capability of the rebels is live intel fed by western intelligence( us, french,turk , british, mossad pick one).

The rebels are on life support from turkey and NATO. Always has and always will be. They are nothing and will be abandonned to rot and die.

Great Khan

Great Khan also say same. Iran brother use new drone and big gun kaputenheimer….

Vox Populi

This is certainly an Iranian drone that struck the terrorist munitions dump.


hero-400ec…jew suicide drone

Jens Holm

That was what I predicted for that big U.S.-made M114 howitzer. Its too big to move around and any of that kind easy will be found and an easy target.

I dont from where they had it, but lighter small ones is much better. Sure the distance for them is short. The grenades might be smaller too, but being well organized they by that can move the canons into hidings or to places, where new targets are known.

In the old days with old canons,You could fire about 6 grenades fast and then about 2 every minut, so the system should be to move the too hot canon You cant fire fx several 100 meters to a new position. Even ´6 to 8 soldiers can do that.
