A Russian reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), Forpost, crashed in the northern countryside of the Syrian province of Hama, according to photos released by pro-militant media sources.
Pro-militant sources say that the UAV was shot down by the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement, one of the allies of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham in the ongoing clashes against the Syrian Army. However, this version still has to be confirmed.
The Forpost is a licensed copy of the Israeli IAI Searcher reconnaissance UAV. Russian forces use Forposts for reconnaissance missions in Syria.
