Russia Accuses US of Supporting Syrian Drone Attack on Their Syria Bases

Syrian rebels launch 'drone attack' on Russian airbase in Latakia

The Syrian Regime Dropped no less than 6,243 Barrel Bombs on Syria in 2017

He pointed out there were no reasons to keep secret or understate the number of drones that attacked Russian military facilities in Syria.

Russian forces were able to overpower radio signals for some of the drones and gain control of them during the attacks overnight on January 5-6, a statement said.

According to a statement by Russian defence ministry, a "strange coincidence" was noted around the time of the attack as a USA spy plane was spotted circling over the area. Syrian air defences intercepted one rocket, but several more hit "near a military position, causing material damage", it added.

The ministry said training by advanced countries is necessary to accurately conduct GPS-guided attacks.

One of the myriad Syrian opposition groups is the most probable suspect, Suchkov said.

They clashed with Tahrir al-Sham fighters around the airport, the Britain-based war monitoring group said.

The attempt to bomb the Hmeimim base near the north-western city of Latakia on Saturday was thwarted when unmanned aircraft were shot down, the BBC reported citing the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

'Ten assault drones were approaching the Khmeimim air base, and another three ...at Tartus.

Just weeks after Russian President Vladimir Putin declared victory in Syria, Russian military outposts in the country have come under rebel attacks that are challenging Moscow's gains.

The Russian defence ministry responded to initiral American denials by claiming the attack needed a "high-level engineer" and that "not every country is able to get sharp coordinates using space intelligence data". But the Russians have hinted that the technology used was too advanced for local militants, seen as a suggestion it could have been supplied by United States forces in the vicinity - something the Pentagon says is "absolutely false".

The size of the Russian deployment in Syria is not known but independent Russian military expert Pavel Felgenhauer told AFP that up to 10,000 troops and private contractors could have taken part in the conflict. At the time, Russian media reported the attacks were easily repulsed by Russian air defense and the unmanned aerial vehicles were primitive.

President Vladimir Putin of Russia, in a surprise visit to that air base on December 11, declared that combat operations were winding down and that the Russian military would stage a "significant withdrawal".

The daring use of short-range mortars also pointed to the inability of Syrian forces to protect the Alawite heartland from hit-and-run raids by the rebels.
