Putin: Russian Forces Intercepted 50 Militant UAVs Over Their Airbase In Syria During Last 2 Months

Source: Russian Defense Ministry

During the last 1.5-2 months, Russian air defense systems intercepted 50 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) launched by militants in attempts to attack Russia’s Hmeimim airbase in Syria, President Vladimir Putin announced during the Germany-Turkey-Russia-France summit on Syria in Istanbul on October 28.

These UAVs are being launched by militant groups operating in the so-called Idlib de-escalation zone, which includes the militant-held parts of Idlib, Aleppo and Lattakia provinces.

Putin warned that if such provications continue, they could lead to a resumption of the military operation in Idlib. The President said that he has informed his “colleagues” about this situation and there were artillery strikes on militant targets in the Idlib zone.

The President further added that the terrorist threat in Idlib has to be eliminated and if there are no other options Russian forces are ready to empliy their military capabilities to achieve this task.

On October 25, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Alexander Fomin stated that the January 6 UAV attack on Hmeimim airbase was coordinated by a US Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane. More about it in this video:

    I bet it’s UK/Israeli techs building these things, bomb them Mr Putin.

      US wants to “bleed Russia” like in Afghanistan according to the idiot Bolton. They are using Saudi and UAE puppets money to buy these drones from the Zionists and then arm them using Turkish and Pakistani contractors for “plausible deniability”. The recent swarm drone attack on the Russian base at Latakia was directed by a US AWACS.

    Now we all know that USA-Israel itself is been directing these attack, and it will continue to do so, as far as USA continue being in Syria.

    • d’Artagnan

      Both Trump and Bolton have openly stated that peace in Syria is not in US, Zionist or NATO interest and the ideal outcome would be to “bleed Russia and Iran”. They think that the war costs will ruin Russia like the Soviet Union and Iranian public would turn against the government, thus affecting “regime change”. Both are delusional fantasies and will result in a closer Russo-Persian alliance. The very fact that the Russian military has blocked Nothing Yahoo’s groveling mission to Moscow so far.

    This is fine. Well done. However, it’s not what you should be doing. Attacking and eliminating the source of the drones is the way to deal with the threat. If this means targeting the ‘ mother ships’ then so be it.

      it’s already happened weeks ago – ragheads used drones to attack hmeynim, their workshop in idlib was found and then destroyed with KAB bombs.

      guess these ones will have the same fate.

        Yes, but rather hoping for bigger fish. That is if the reports of US spy planes directing the attacks are true. Actually even if they are not true still hoping.
