Syrian Army Shot Down US MQ-4C Triton High-Altitude Drone Over Aleppo – Report

Illustrative image.

The Syrian military had shot down an American MQ-4C Triton high-altitude long endurance surveillance drone over the countryside of the northern governorate of Aleppo, the U-News reported on August 4.

An informed source told the news agency, which is known to be close to Lebanon’s Hezbollah and the Syrian state, that the drone was shot down with a missile fired by a Russian-made Buk-M2E air-defense system of the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF).

“The American plane took off from Martyr Muwaffaq Salti Air Base in the Azraq region in northern Jordan,” the unnamed source said.

U-News didn’t specify when the incident took place. Nevertheless, Syrian sources reported the shot down of a large drone over the western countryside of Aleppo on August 2. Footage showing the drone failing from sky in a ball of flames were shared online.

The US military has not commented on U-News claims, so far. If confirmed, this will be the first time a MQ-4C was shot down.

On June 20 of 2019, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps shot down a BAMS-D drone over the Strait of Hormuz. The drone is a prototype version of the RQ-4A that was developed by Northrop Grumman as a part of the MQ-4C development program.

U-News claims were met with much specialism, mainly because the MQ-4C was developed to conduct surveillance and reconnaissance missions (ISR) over vast ocean and coastal regions.

Furthermore, the news agency shared footage showing the wreckage of a Russian Forpost drone which crashed in the western Aleppo countryside, reportedly as a result of a technical failure, on August 3. The agency falsely claimed that the wreckage belonged to the downed MQ-4C.

While there is sufficient evidence to confirm that the SyAADF shot down a large drone over the countryside of Aleppo on August 2, the type of the aircraft and the identity of its operators are yet to be confirmed.

good news

Jens arseholm

Real good news will be when an intruding Americunt or Jew jet is downed.

“U-News claims were met with much specialism,”

Speculation perhaps? Please correct, Thank you SF.

An excellent result by the SAA. Buk has an altitude of 25km, no drone is safe.

How about the correct British English spelling of “scepticism” instead of the US ‘bastard’ English!

SAA needs to shoot down an Americunt or Zionist jet.

RUSSIA HOMO AND CORRUPT COUNTRY

SOUTHFRONT RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA FAIL!!

These are the videos Russian Forpost UAV that got shot down yesterday over Idlib.

Here is photo evidence: https://mobile.twitter.com/RALee85/status/1422499716194045953

Of course the Russian propaganda site will try to spin it around and claim something else was shot down. Fail again.

Dontlietome

More Disinfo from an Israeli Zionist Homo and Corrupt Country………………

PUTIN IS A FAG

So explain to me why the drone wreckage has Russian (cyrillic) markings and looks mostly like the Forpost UAV they have? The faction who released this video even claimed they shot down a Russian UAV and the pictures confirm that.

Its just another Russian drone getting shot down, it shouldnt even be news any more :)

Michel LeBlanc

Its a ukrainian drone dummy.

The end

jensy in its best, barking crap like there is no tomorrow…

RUSSIA HOMO AND CORRUPT COUNTRY

You only insult and can’t even counter my point. The UAV is definitely Russian and was shot down. You can rage and insult all you won’t but it won’t change a thing.

Americunt LOSERS

Twatz you fool no one, dumb Jew idiot :)

UKROPISSTAN HOMO AND CORRUPT COUNTRY

It was an ukropnazi drone.

World_Eye

Iran shot down one like 1 year ago same model the Global Hawk it is not the first time one of these were shot.

Phoron

Take 120 million ZOGbux and flush it down the shitter

Phoron

Correction, thats 120 million ZOGbux in 2015 money. Due to jew inflation, unit procurement cost is currently approx. 180 million ZOGbux

The end

jensy in its best, barking crap like there is no tomorrow…

Americunt LOSERS

Like during Hafez al Assad’s era, the SAA needs to shoot down the Americunt invaders jets violating the airspace of Syria. Russia should be actively testing its modern AD systems on Americunt ECM like the Iranians have been doing. In Russia there is absolute plausible deniability as there are so many resistance forces involved and anyone could have shot down the Americunt ar$eholes. Russia, Iran and SAA should be setting up layered and interconnected AD and warning systems.
