Click to see the full-size image

Militants fired a total of 36 rockets at Russia’s Hmeimim airbase in Syria on May 6, the Russian military reported.

According to the report, the rockets were fired in two attacks. The militants used a drone to direct the fire. Both attacks were repelled by the airbase’s defenses. No damage or casualties were caused.

The shelling came from the Idlib de-escalation zone, which included the militant-held parts of Lattakia, Idlib, Hama and Aleppo provinces.

The Russian Aerospace Forces carried out strikes on militant positions in response to the attack.

    The inefficiency of Russian counter-attacks is becoming quite obvious sadly.. We have seen this scenario over and over again.

    • Guibus Guib

      look at the situation of Syria before and after Russia entered the war to see how efficient it is.

    • Saddam Hussein

      Cmon, without Russia, President Assad would have been long gone.

      • Sinbad2

        But the US will keep up their terror attacks, the only solution is the complete destruction of the USA.
        I know many people don’t like nukes, so maybe just a conventional terror attack on Fort Detrick, and let the American germ weapons depopulate America. They also have huge chemical weapon stockpiles. A crazy jihadist flying a plane into either would rid this world of their evil.

          The jihadists are CIA mercenaries.

            What are the benefits of being married to the enemy? Transfer of information gathered? Why do the intel communities always have marriages of convenience?
            Why do Rich people marry into other rich peoples families? Blood lines? Consolidate the wealth? Why do intel communities marry into political and legal relations? LEAKS? DEEP STATE?

            You dont understand the game Sinbad! You have no idea how this is all played! You dont actually read anything other than this website! Then u chant the same bullshit like always!

            America was bad (under obama and bush and clinton)
            Not anymore!

            Venez is not about oil!
            Its a cold proxy war between China and the USA!
            The oil is just a focus point! The oil dictates which way the economic window blows! towards China or the USA!

            The bad people (Zionists and globalists) support china! YOU FUCKIN KNOW THIS!!

            You just hate America!
            BUT…. if you hate America then you LOVE the CIA!
            But if you hate the CIA you love America!

            You cant hate both because the CIA works against America’s interests!

            Something your little brain doesnt understand because your unstable emotions wants you to put them all into one bag and hate them both!

            I am proving to you that the CIA LOVES CHINA! AND SO DO YOU!

            Are you trying to hide the fact that you love China? Because i screen shot all your shit! Im saving it for what i call “THE BIG BOMB”!
            Thats when southfront finally produces material to say that :

            China colluded with the Dems to rig the election in their favour but failed!
            China finances US Left MSM!
            China works with the CIA in tech transfers!
            etc etc etc

            Thats when i come in with my bomb!
            Going to show all your friends here on southfront how much you LOVE china!

            Cant wait!

            This year for sure!

          • You can call me Al

            I have no qualms with China at the moment but despise the US and Israeli warmongering and I certainly would not doubt the post below claiming that they financed the Democrats, but so what ?.

            Do you defend this?

            These messages prove he is biased and does not consider himself liable but he wants to execute people who werent even born at the time!

            Thanks mate!

          • You can call me Al

            NO. But I didn’t see that, I have checked again and it is not on the comments of this article (I think I am correct). My comments are per article.

            Sorry for my abuse, but so many tossers have come to SF in the last few weeks….

            My apologies.

          • Justin

            its ok! i am abusive only to abusers!

            But i will not stand for a hypocrite like this guy!
            its nice to know who these people are when they TRY to make compelling comments, then you remember they want to kill innocent people when they themselves are more guilty than those they accuse!

            I like exposing them and abusing them back!
            Thats why i use screen shots!

          • You can call me Al

            Fair play, but my view is he is alright.

            Sometimes, many of us here (ME) and everywhere now have just had enough of the US (administration) now.

            Cheers anyway.

          • Justin

            The CIA and the Clinton and Bush cabal propped u China!
            The CIA GAVE them tech (as well as North Korea!)
            The Globalist goal has always been to put the USA into endless wars and prop up their new and much more easily controlled Zionist HQ!

            Here is more proof!
            Listen Carefully!
            Those who support China support Zionists!
            (China doesnt stay out of wars because they are good, they stay out to build while the others drain)

            Oh Dear, I honestly do not know what to say. Google have gone rogue, well on TV yes. Globalism at it’s best.

            This is what the fuss is about – https://theintercept.com/2019/03/04/google-ongoing-project-dragonfly/ ……………… Exactly what they do in the US apparently.

          • Justin

            Right!
            So what this article is NOT telling you is that China burnt down the Google Server HQ due to US govt pressure that Google Does Not produce a censored search!

            It all happened in this order:
            1. Google fully intending to make a Chinese govt controlled censored search engine!
            2. US govt asking google not to!
            3. Google employees protesting against google to do so
            4. China burns down Google HQ
            5. Google now complying with china (as it always intended)

            Note: Dragonfly was created by Google! A new name so that it can be seen that google isnt working for China!

            “Google is reportedly continuing work on a search engine Opens a New Window. in China Opens a New Window. , according to an internal investigation by the tech giant’s employees, putting the controversial project back into the spotlight after it was abandoned following condemnation from lawmakers Opens a New Window. in both parties. The initiative – known internally as Project Dragonfly – was said to be ready for release by April 2019.”

            They burned down the Google building in China to say they are “Cancelling the Chinese search project” but Dragonfly (its replacement) is the original Google Search for China!

            The Reason why Google and Facebook are working in China is because these 2 companies (along with Twitter) are actually the CIA! All created by DARPA!
            Why would the CIA and these countries work in china and with China?

            Because the CIA does not Work for the USA! It works for the Zionist globalists!
            Why did the US (under Bill Clinton) begin the transfer of industries to China?
            Why the tech transfer?
            Why all the TOP google and Facebook Projects in China?
            Why?
            Because China is the NEW Zionist HQ!

            The USA has been put into endless wars that bring it no profit! China stays out of wars (garners support from people like Sinbad) and grows stronger and stronger while the USA gets weaker and weaker!

            President for life, communism, one political party, Spy grid with face recognition, social credit system! Bad slaves get punished digitally!

            The NSA and the CIA are at war!
            Snowden was from the CIA and moved into the NSA, fled to China and exposed the NSA spy tools (which it can legally have) because the NSA had both domestic and foreign jurisdiction! The CIA only has foreign! That is why the CIA created its OWN domestic spy tools! Facebook and Google!

            Proof?

            Here is 8 Chan (the site the CIA tries very hard to close down but cant) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2f14084ca207143334a1a08c774e3eaa1b4738184fa5649c575fb2a8b140ea17.png

            Here is the NSA’s new cybersecurity tool for EVERYONE in the world to use and download!

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9e870fb0a46bdeef7889ed217fd718362993bac456e5f3bb0250b17e4f4bad8e.png

            Do you notice something?
            Why would the NSA create a cyber security reverse engineering tool for people to download?

            Why make it so obvious that 8 Chan is truly an NSA creation?
            What does the NSA specialise in?
            Signals intelligence?
            Encryption and decryption?
            What are the NSA’s jurisdictions? Foreign and Domestic?
            The CIA’s jurisdictions? (Only Foreign?)
            Hence the CIA creates Facebook, Google, twitter!

            NSA directed by the military, CIA directed by mainly civilians!
            There is an Intel war going on!
            Patriots vs Zionists!
            Nationalists vs Globalists
            White hats vs black hats!

            The CIA is a globalist intel agency!
            Mossad and the CIA were created around the same time!
            The same time that Israel became a state (1948)

            Do u understand?

            The Zionists have always wanted pure dictatorship!
            Soviet Union (Bolsheviks were Jews (rothschild funded)! Stalin was a georgian Jew)

            They tried with the Soviet Union (failed)
            They tried with america (too many freedoms and civilians with guns)
            Now they try with china!

            Step back and look at the big picture!
            You already KNOW the CIA controls the enemy! (example ISIS and HTS and Al-quieda)
            That have owned China and North Korea since the fall of the Soviet union!

            After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989, what happened?
            USA invades middle east unopposed!
            Industries transfer to China
            USAin endless wars
            Middle east wars allows USA to print its own wealth and its own war machine!
            China has tech given to them!
            North korea has missile and nuclear tech given to them!
            NK leaders are puppets!
            China to lead and devastation in the USA to be blamed on North korea!
            China stays out of wars and becomes a global power!
            The new ruler!

            Anyone who supports china supports Zionists globalists!

            it is very easy to see once you use logic and forget emotions!

          • You can call me Al

            I totally agree with you and I do believe it is not just the US going through it. In Europe, they have to use different tactics and they are failing badly and you can see the back lash in the elections (but then again, going on, you have to think is that what they want.

          CIA ISIS guy will recruit you!

          Then you can go live in China after the job is done!
          Then you will find out that the CIA hired you, trained you, wanted you to drop the bomb on the USA and then gave you Chinese citizenship! The CIA will make you their hero! They’ve been trying to kill the USA and its people for years!

      Because the US doesn’t bomb anything in Idlib. It loves those guys, they’re the ‘moderate opposition’ to Assad, who is a very bad man, remember?

  • RichardD

    Probably a couple of volleys from multiple rocket launchers. If they were intercepted it was probably with antiaircraft missiles that are more expensive and less numerous than unguided artillery rockets. Shutting down the attacking launch platforms quickly is important to prevent them from overwhelming the anti aircraft systems as the Palestinians are doing to the IDF.

    • Jens Holm

      Well, there has been shown videos as well as they have names. Much like somebody use Your head for volleyball or something.

  • BMWA1

    Obviously, the need for restarting ground offensive to remove these threats altogether is underlined by this attack…let us hope.

    That said, very impressive short-range defense capacity, Matrix 2000 style! :)

    • Jens Holm

      There is no threats. A lot of people are very happy as long as You kill each other. It doesnt matter if You slow down now and then.

      I saw the branding of the missiles, they seemes to be very good ones. I have hopes. A missile a day keep and emmigrant away :)

  • Xoli Xoli

    It was Turkey duty to repelling this attack on Russian base because it is Erdogans terrorists.

      Good music. N Latakia is rough country and leads nowhere, unless you are talking about going east and then north. Hit the soft underbelly between built up positions. :)

      They should send an email to the Yankers saying – This is what the Pantsir and S-200 Systems do, Wait until you see the S-300 system does, and if needed when we switch the S-400 soon.

    I wonder what the Russians used to take them out, expensive long or medium range AA missiles, or Pantsir short range AA missiles and guns, or all of them probably, be nice if they gave us just a bit more info, but perhaps they don’t want the rebels to know what they used and did either, oh well, just have to wonder.
