UAV Syria.

This is coolbert:

Who are you?

From the latest edition of the DEBKAfile newsletter an Israeli appreciation of the most recent drone attack on the Russian Hmeimim air base. An attack foiled! As to the drones belonged to and were operated from this is still unclear?

1. "Syria downs two rebel drones heading for attack on Russian air base"

6 January.

"Syrian military sources report that their air defense weapons last week intercepted two Syrian rebel drones heading for an attack on Russia's Hmeimim Air Base. The sources said the UAVs belonged to the Al Qaeda-linked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, were powered by diesel engines and packed with mortar shells . . .  The same group was responsible for the shelling attack on Dec. 31 that destroyed 7 Russian warplanes."

Hayat Tahrir al-sham known at one time as the Al-Nusra Front.  The Syrian affiliate of Al Qaeda

2. "Russia foils attack on its Syrian bases by electronically 'controlling' 6 drones, downing 7"

8 January.

"The Defense Ministry in Moscow reports: A massive terrorist drone attack on Russian military and naval bases in Syria was thwarted by electronic measures."

"The statement said that overnight on Jan. 6, Syrian 'militants' (terrorists) sent a large swarm of unmanned aerial vehicles to attack Russia's Tartus Naval base and Khmeimim air base. Russian defenses took control of six drones and its Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and gun system shot down another seven."

3. "Moscow: Drone attack on Russian bases came from Turkish-ruled area"

11 January.

"The Defense Ministry in Moscow charged Thursday that the massive drone attack on two Russian bases in Syria on Jan. 6, was launched from an area in the northern Syrian province of Idlib controlled by Turkish-backed rebel forces . . . a Russian probe discovered that it was Turkey which supplied the Syrian Islamist rebels with advanced drone technology and instructions for the assembly and use of advanced UAVs as pressure on Russia to hold back the Syrian-Hizballah operation to recover Idlib."

Recall that portions of northern Syria currently occupied by Turkish troops and settled by ethnic Uighur Turks.

Again, who are you?
