Terrorists may use drones for their attacks

"...It is a unusual coincidence that during a UAV attack on the Russian military facilities in Syria, a US Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft was cruising for more than four hours over the Mediterranean Sea at an altitude of 7,000 meters", a source within the Russian Defense Ministry said, reported Russian state news agency TASS.

As part of the de-escalation zones, agreed in a tripartite consensus between Iran, Russian and Turkey, Turkish forces are also now in Syria's Idlib province, monitoring the process in the military posts set up in the province. The drone attack reportedly took place overnight from January 5 to January 6.

In December, Putin visited the Khmeimim base and said Russian Federation would start to wind its presence down because the war in Syria is essentially over.

More than 40 Russian military personnel died in Syria since Moscow launched a campaign of air strikes in September 2015, in many cases using Hmeimim as a base.

Idlib province is nearly entirely controlled by anti-government forces that are dominated by an outfit known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) consisting mostly of former fighters from the Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda affiliate.

Russian news site Lenta reports the drones used in the attempted attack were basic in design.

They say the declaration by Putin could be aimed at the domestic audience in Russian Federation, as he is bidding for another presidential run in the country's upcoming elections in March. Currently, the Russian military experts are analyzing the construction, technical filling and improvised explosives of the captured UAVs.

"Iran and Russian Federation should fulfil their responsibility".

"The drones were launched from the area of Muazzara in the southwestern part of the Idlib de-escalation area controlled by so-called "moderate opposition" units", defence ministry newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda said.

The armed Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAV) used in the attack, according to sources, could have been obtained only from a country possessing state-of-the-art technologies.

Most of the Islamic State drones used against USA allies, moreover, had a range of no more than 1-2km, according to an analysis by the defense consultancy IHS Markit group.

She said the incidents were proof that "whoever conducted these attacks can still penetrate regime areas and impose costs on the Russians". Idlib, bordering Turkey, is the largest single chunk of Syria still under the control of rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad. Under an understanding reached between Russia, Turkey and Iran past year, Turkey is supposed to be responsible for restraining the opposition in Idlib and Russia and Iran is responsible with preventing the regime from carrying out attacks. "This merely emphasizes the need for stepping up political settlement efforts".
