A US Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane operated 13 unmanned aerial vehicles that attacked Russia’s Hmeymim airbase in Syria on January 6, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Alexander Fomin said at a plenary session of the Beijing Xiangshan Forum on security on October 25.

“Thirteen UAVs moved according to common combat battle deployment, operated by a single crew. During all this time the American Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane patrolled the Mediterranean Sea area for eight hours,” Colonel General Alexander stated adding that when the UAVs faced Russian “electronic warfare screen, they moved away to some distance, received the corresponding orders and began to be operated out of space and receiving help in finding the so-called holes through which they started penetrating.”

Despite this, seven UAVs were downed, and control over six drones was gained through electronic warfare systems.

Colonel General Fomin also emphasized that it’s needed “to put an end to the provision of money, weapons, equipment and various substances to terrorists, including chemical ingredients used during the so-called chemical attacks that are later blamed on the Syrian government.” He noted that most of these tools and means were produced in foreign countries, particularly NATO member states.

Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman vowed that Israel “will not accept any restrictions” on Israeli freedom of operation in Syria. Liberman commented on the recent reports by Israeli media that Russia wants to reshape the format of the Moscow-Tel-Aviv contacts and demands Israel to provide earlier warning of strikes.

After the incident with the Russian IL-20 military plane in Syria, Moscow already noted that Israel ignores the existing hot-line agreement and provides a false and untimely info on its actions in the war-torn country. The Russian Defense Ministry openly pointed out that the IL-20 plane was downed by Syrian air defense fire because of “hostile actions” of Israel. In response, Russia supplied S-300 systems to the Syrian military.

This week Israel’s ImageSat International has released a group of satellite images alleging that the deployment site of the Syrian S-300 system is located near the village of Masyaf in the province of Hama.

The situation remains tense in the Idlib demilitarization zone where militant groups continue shelling targets in the government–held area. The situation is especially complicated in the countryside of Aleppo where the Syrian Army is even forced to carry out active retaliatory strikes.

    Este intervención de USA atacando directamente a Rusia es totalmente inaceptable, pero esto lo tienen que entencer los Rusos mismos primeros, y USA debe sufrir las consecuencias de sus acciones.

        You eat shit and your mother is a goat. Now sod off you braindead moron.

  • R Trojson

    Hard to believe US would mount a direct attack on Russia. I do not believe it because if true Putin just bent over and let Trump have his way with him. Putin has not said one word, not even pass the lubricant.

    • Jens Holm

      Not a word since january 5. I am like You in this.

      It must be for the Gustava kind. You give them a spoonful of sugar and the medicine goes down.

      • slayern2

        “I am like You” Yes you are: two lonely, braindead turds. Go play with R Twhorson instead of polluting this site with your stupidity.

      Previous experience shows US provide Intelligence to ISIS and Co. to defend them or to help them carrying out attacks.

      Remember the killing of 82 SAA near Deir-Ez-Zour by US Airfighters by Obama, after which Putin fired Kalibr missiles into US/UK/Israel Intelligence Central in Aleppo.

      So its not hard to believe US provided Intelligence to drones as described. Its very likely based on our experience.

      • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

        and the USA trained, armed and funded ISIS, also actively advertised for bodies to join them with all those gruesome images of how ‘strong and terrifying’ they were in MSM.

    • Sinbad2

      You into instant grat?
      The idea of waiting for the perfect moment isn’t your thing?
      Revenge is a dish best served cold, and when it is taken, the US will hide it from the plebs.

    • slayern2

      Tell your daddy and his boyfriend about lubricants you brainless faggot with fake account. Two years – 2 comments, then 60 comments here in 2 days? Pathetic shiteater just go die someplace… any place but here.

    • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

      What other allies does the USA have that is capable of doing it then?

  • Icarus Tanović

    Active retilatory strikes…Mhhh, sounds GREAT!

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    I dont think USA move that drones from Poseidon plane…but I think that USA knew that attacks were ongoing and they wanted to spy Russian EWS….it is to say that in fact USA and terrorist are allies!

    • Sinbad2

      “I dont think USA move that drones from Poseidon plane

      You can’t think that, because you don’t know any of the facts, you believe.
      Like religion, you believe, you don’t need facts for a belief. Don’t confuse intelligence with superstition.

      So really it would be I dont believe USA move that drones from Poseidon plane.

      • Manuel Flores Escobar

        OK tanks for English class!

  • The Interrogator

    A review of General Hayden’s twitter might lead to a suspicion that his badly scuffed brown shoes were a signal to a clandestine operation. Why is he so visibly estatic to be interviewed by Kevin Landers?

  • The Interrogator

    Is there any hint of comm from john_sipher to T B-H at pravdareport?

    Liberman has since said that the positions of S-300 infrastructure will not be targeted by SS Zinosists, Netanyahu is heavily backing the Democrats to win a majority in the house Netanyahu badly wants a new world order that will be opposing Trump’s callous indifference to any form of old school progressive ideology.

    Trump is perceived as a cunning manipulator with no way of communicating anything except rank US exceptionalism, if Trump loses the House he could be voluntarily replace by Pence.

    THAT’S THE ONLY WAY NETANYAHU CAN MAINTAIN THE MYSTIC OF iSRAELI AIR SUPREMACY.

    Netanyahu hopes to pull his archaic F-35’s out of the contest by stepping back as if nothing ever happened, murder means nothing to Netanyahu, soon he himself won’t hesitate to squirm like an unborn baby, but his pretence will be a sick joke that will drive him out of politics.

    Putin won’t allow Netanyahu to murdered Russians with indifference which is why Putin brought up the January incident.

    That’s the combined agenda of both Republicans and Democrats, they want a more palatable message to sell to the world, but if Trump can hold on to the House war can be averted.

    However I think only Allah can make that happen now.
