The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) brought down on September 21 a large quad-copter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) near the separation line with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the army was able to take control of the hostile UAV and land it once it reached the town of Erneh, 8km north of the separation line. Electronic warfare means were apparently used to control the UAV.

“While inspecting and disassembling the UAV by specialized engineer teams, it became clear that it was armed with submunitions on top of being booby-trapped with a C4 explosive charge, in order to prevent its dismantling and protect its secrets,” a security source told the SANA.

The state-run agency said that the UAV came from the western direction. The SAA controls the entire region, while Hezbollah controls the nearby Lebanese villages. This suggest that the UAV came from the Israeli-occupied areas in northwestern Golan.

Photos of the UAV reveal that it was armed with two small-diameter submunitions, both equipped with a parachute.

Last month, two quad-copters equipped with explosive devices attacked a center of Hezbollah in Beirut’s Southern Suburb. The incident was blamed on Israel, which appears to be using such drones in its covert operations.

Syrian army is more competent than Saudis and Americans. lol It seems Russian hardware is also generations ahead of its foreign analogues. For the times that the defense fails, they can still ascertain the source of the attack.


if say 95 pct of trouble or unrest or murder or thievery emanates from the same source or is caused by the same party, the natural thing to do is to cut off or truncate the party from all intercourse or social exchanges with its neighbours, the amount of trouble, murder, thievery and unrest caused by israel would make it a common sense move to have them all removed from the land they’ve stolen. nothing much to it but it will take turkey, syria, iran, hezbollah and iraq to actually send them packing and if russia would hoover in the background as a backup, that would help quite a bit.

Zionism = EVIL

Fucking cheapskate Jews are arming their terrorists with Kmart drones bought off the shelf.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
