The so-called Syrian National Army (SNA) announced on November 2 that its militants had shot down a drone of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near the town of Ain Issa in the northern Raqqa countryside

The Turkish-backed group released photos of the downed rotary wing mini drone, which appears to be a commercially-bought type. The drone didn’t appear to be equipped with any optical system, nor armed with any type of projectiles.
