On January 12, the Ministry of Defense of Russia announced in an official statement that Russian forces had located and eliminated the group which conducted the mortar attack on Hmeimim airbase on December 31, 2017. Russian forces used the 2K25 Krasnopol 152 mm laser-guided artillery round to eliminate the group of terrorists, according to the ministry.

“When the terrorists arrived at the facility where they were to board a minibus, the whole subversive group was eliminated by the Krasnopol high-precision munition,” the ministry said in its official statement, according to the Russian news agency TASS .

The ministry added that the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) uncovered a terrorist fixed-wing drone assembly and storage workshop in in the northern Idlib governorate. The workshop is likely linked to the armed drone attack on Hmeimim airbase, and Tartus naval facility base on January 6.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said during a meeting with the media on January 11, that Russia knows which “provocateur” was behind the drone attack which targeted the Russian military bases in Syria, according to Reuters.

After it was located by the GRU, Russian forces destroyed the drone workshop with a laser-guided 2K25 Krasnopol artillery round according to the defense ministry.

The both strikes were filmed by unmanned aerial vehicles.

The 2K25 Krasnopol guided artillery rounds which were used to eliminate the terrorists were likely fired by a 2S19 “Msta-S” 152.4 mm self-propelled howitzer, that was already spotted in Syria on May 26, 2017. The Krasnopol has a range of up to 40km, a 20kg high-explosives warhead and a pinpoint accuracy thanks to its semi-active laser (SAL) guidance system.

    Some laser guided payback. COOL :)

  • Xanatos

    But the Russians said the drone technology had come from some nation. Which country? And were they present at the workshop?

    • Johny

      Which country is (1) screaming all over the roofs saying that Iranian forces should leave Syria and (2) blaming Russia for kicking the hell out of their puppets on the ground?

      • Jasminko Grdic

        Answer : Israel puppy US Trump CIA Agency

      • Turbofan

        Answer..the daily double…..who is US and Israel

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Should also notice they are there illegally along with other NATO coalition countries and Israeli forces in Northern Syria , none are invited yet they want those invited it out. This is like the Former Brother in law who comes to visit unannounced and because you have guests over he demands they leave.

    • Boris Kazlov

      Such an easy guess makes this question irrelevant.

    • Nikolay

      “Which country?”
      -Not country. Half-legal organization. *
      “And were they present at the workshop?”
      -Regretfully not. Much vigilant and foxy (cunningly shrewd).
      *According to Igor Guberman (Jewish heretic born in Russia) – ” Neither people we are nor nation, but half-legal we are organization.”

        what’s a Jewish heretic? one that has renounced money?

        • alejoeisabel

          Nobody should renounce money. What’s an Anglo heretic? Someone who renounces racism? What’s a Russian heretic? One who renounces Vodka?
          A Jewish heretic is someone who fights Zionism. Soros fights Zionism. He is a quasi heretic. A Jewish heretic supports Iran and Russia. A Jewish heretic wants to get the hell out of Occupied Palestine.

    the videos show more than drone filming, it appears they have recorded the feed from the designating platform, showing nice precision.

    • Starlight

      You don’t get the tech. Lasers ILLUMINATE the target, guiding in the shells. The laser can be from an observing air vehicle, or from an agent on the ground (the usual case in such strikes). The device filming the strike need have NOTHING to do with ether the laser targeting nor the bombing/shelling.In the case of an agent on the ground, and laser guided artillery, the observing drone is a third party.

      • John Whitehot

        and you don’t get nothing.

        The overlay clearly shows distance measurement, a likely percentage hit probability and the crosshair changes shape probably to indicate the laser switching on and off. That means it’s very likely the designating platform, rather than a simple drone filming the strikes.

        Foolproof explanation: the drone that films the strike is the same that designates the target.

  • Bobo Voxar

    Krasnopol… next name of pain-in-ass in russian?…

    • Solomon Krupacek

      means red meadow

      • Bobo Voxar

        RED FIELD exactly … wish you one

  • Valery Grigoryev

  • Lupus

    BAM! ?Game over fucktards ?

  • Klaus_der_Kraut

    There is a jump cut right before the hit (around 0:05-0:06). You can see the people suddenly disappeared as they approached the vehicle. I wonder why.

    • @Inc2Get

      I think they just fast forwarded the video there as the jihadis might have taken a long time to board the buss.

      • PZIVJ

        I think your right.
        The round would have taken a little time to reach target also.

    • Rodger

      Yup, noticed that too. Very weird.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      There were two different views which was a nice touch.

    • Starlight

      If an agent on the ground was using the laser designator, the video may be censored to avoid showing such.

  • Turbofan

    Now thats the Russia I know..

  • Rodger

    Hahaha, love the building blowing a smoke ring in the 2nd video.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      but in the first nithing happens :(

      • John Whitehot

        what? the first shows a truck that explodes in the moment 5 or 6 militants try to get in it.
        you must be in denial.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          The wise cracker is trying to be funny as usual and isn’t funny or wise at all.

            my bad then, i couldn’t grasp the irony

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Just how I treat his comments as irony he is a hardcore Ukronazi supporter also suffers from Chronic Rosiyaphobia.

          the rast of the base remained safe.

          • PZIVJ

            You sound like drunken lady in the pub.
            Target was destroyed, good job GRU.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            was not

          • dontlietome

            Oh go play with your dolls, Krapajack !

          • John Whitehot

            probably because it’s a random building where they slept with rats and bugs rather than a base. If they bombed it you’d say they caused unnecessary destruction.

  • Solomon Krupacek

    mortar or rocket or drone attack?

  • Pave Way IV

    What I really want to know is: if Russia took out a building of CIA operatives ‘advising’ these head-choppers, would anyone in the US military even really care? I mean, aside from the Israeli-firsters in control of the Pentagon – we already know which side they’re on.

    • Potato Potato

      The CIA operatives families?

    • Tommy Jensen

      Russia would never touch Americans and Israeli´s in Syria. They have too much repect for USA and Americans to dare to wound even 1 US Marine.
      The comic story you have seen on dark web about “Russia taking out CIA operatives” is wishful thinking.
      Russia has been taking out some few plastic drones of children size of Israel´s and US Marine´s more by accident than by purpose, and they phone US everytime they wake up in the morning to say they are now going to breakfast.

      • PZIVJ

        I heard the US is pulling some forces out of Iraq.
        Is Trump starting to play smart, or just more BS twitter news ??

        Well we know they killed 30 IDF in one attack on an ISIS C&C bunker.
        As for Americans, well there was a vid on Youtube of some Russian guys kicking a guy in a Ukrainian police uniform, who was screaming he was a US citizen, in a southern accent.

      He seems to like killing Jews as well.
      Russia took out an ISIS command and control centre some time back, and took out 30 Jews.
      I don’t think Putin cares about religion, he is happy to kill any low life that kills or threatens Russian troops.

      There have been many clever people born to Jewish parents, but because they are clever, they reject the Jewish faith.
      As the rather famous Jew Henry Kissinger once said “any people that has been persecuted for two thousand
      years must be doing something wrong”

  • Starlight

    Both targets taken out AFTER Putin warned the British SAS handlers to ensure they were not present at the locations during the strikes.

    And now Britain simply swaps to the next couple of teams of SAS trained wahhabi terrorists, and the whole cycle repeats again.

    • John Whitehot

      “Both targets taken out AFTER Putin warned the British SAS handlers to ensure they were not present at the locations during the strikes”

      you have a career in comedies. Don’t waste time on sf.

      • dontlietome

        Yes, you picked that line up too ???? Now why in the F*** would he or the GRU forewarn their gravest enemies, really , such comments defy logic. If starlight cast his mind back to the time when the Russians took out the terrorist battlefield ops room in Aleppo, which was staffed by NATO/Israeli/Saudi/Qatari/Yank personnel of various ranks,then he would know that Pres. Putin would just LOVE to vaporise a bunch of SAS operatives.

        • John Whitehot

          “Yes, you picked that line up too ?”

          It’s a line that is present in a large percentage of comments since months, which gives the impression that it’s a concept devised in some stinking little room to 1- Demonize Putin in the eyes of Syrians, Arabs and western dissidents when it says “He forewarns US/UK”, 2- Demonize Putin and perpetuate the illusions of the ukro-junta supporters when it says “he forewarns jews”, or “he is a jew himself”.

          This is the ultimate, massive amount of propaganda bs, as technically is very unlikely (in fact almost impossible) that Putin is involved in the decision-order-combat task loop.

          Even the GRU forces depending from the higher echelons (this isn’t soviet times anymore, the GRU or ex-KGB do not respond to the “PolitBureau”) should take their orders from military entities and NOT from the Office of the President.

          But the bs is in line with the retarded western medias diktats by which Russia is being ruled by a dictatorship and every single decision is personally taken by the dictator.

          “Putin would just LOVE to vaporise a bunch of SAS operatives”

          I sincerely doubt that he reasons that way, I mean, you could think that about Dubya perhaps, maybe Killary, but Putin seems to be very different from them in this kind of inclinations.

          • dontlietome

            Mmmmmmm, I wondered if you would pick me up on that point. Yes, perhaps I was in Kilary mode too ! No, actually he probably has immense respect for them, because they are VERY good at what they do, but they ARE his foe and it cannot rest easy, knowing that his best have to go up against the enemies best. Pres.Putin is a difficult figure to fathom. I would like to believe he is a key player in the resistance to the NWO and a person of high moral fibre………… But taking his heritage into account, and his efforts to help the Orthodox Church back onto its feet, I am faced with a dilemma. Are his motives sound, is he using the Church as an opiate to control the masses or is he driven by his newly found belief in Christ ????? Gimme your feedback !

    Dear moderators,

    Someone asked which country and I replied with the following:
    “…
    Which country is (1) screaming all over the roofs saying that Iranian
    forces should leave Syria and (2) blaming Russia for kicking the hell
    out of their puppets on the ground?
    …”
    Why do this reply qualifies as “spam” and get deleted?
