Drones used to attack Hmeimim Airbase only available to states : Russian MoD

Russian MoD
Russian Ministry of Defense stressed in a statement that the technology used in the attack with “drones” on Hmeimim Airbase and the Russian Naval CSS point in the city of Tartous is “only available to the states.”


In a response to statements by US Department of Defense Spokesman, Adrian Rankin-Galloway, who claimed that the drones used in the attack are sold in the markets and they can be easily obtained, the Ministry said in a statement that Galloway’s statements increased Moscow’s suspicions on the possibility of the US involvement in that attack.

It added that after checking up the drones used in the attack, it became clear that terrorists used such drones intensively for the first time from a distance of 50 kms based on a sophisticated technology that works based on the US GPS system.

The Ministry added that the area from which terrorists launched the drones had been defined, adding that they can launch attacks using drones from a distance of 100kms.

The Ministry indicated that all the drones used in the attack were launched at the same time after supplying them with foreign-made detonators, and they were equipped with remote controls, which proves that the terrorists had obtained such engineering solutions from one of the states.

  1. Drones used by Syrian terrorists ‘require advanced training’ – Russian MoD in response to US...

    The Russian Defense Ministry expressed concern over the US claim that drones used in a terrorist attack on a Russian base in Syria could be easily obtained. Such an attack would have required a developed country’s help, it said.
    Moscow consciously didn’t point any fingers when talking about the January 6 attack on Russia’s airbase and port facility in Syria, the Tuesday statement said, but added that technology used in the attack was telling.

    Advanced training in engineering in “one of the developed countries” would be necessary to program the principal controllers and bomb-release systems of an aircraft-type combat drone, the statement stressed. “Not everyone is also able to get exact [attack] coordinates from the space surveillance data,” it added.

    The ministry noted that a US Navy Poseidon reconnaissance aircraft was flying over the region between the Russian bases in Latakia and Tartus for some four hours around the time of the drone attack. An earlier Pentagon statement allowed the Russian military to “take a new look at some strange coincidences” surrounding the incident, it said.........https://on.rt.com/8wi6

  2. Un Poseidon des Forces armées américaines effectuait une patrouille entre les villes syriennes de Tartous et de Hmeimim durant la période pendant laquelle des terroristes ont mené une attaque de drones contre les bases militaires russes en Syrie, a déclaré le ministère russe de la Défense, commentant ainsi les récents propos du Pentagone sur la disponibilité de technologies analogues sur le marché.
    «… une drôle de coïncidence. Pourquoi durant la période de l’attaque de drones des terroristes contre les sites militaires russes en Syrie, c’est justement un avion de renseignement des Forces armées américaines Poseidon qui patrouillait pendant plus de quatre heures à une altitude de 7.000 mètres au-dessus de la Méditerranée, entre Tartous et Hmeimim», s’interroge l’institution militaire russe.

  3. Moscú detecta desde dónde fueron lanzados los drones contra una base militar rusa en Siria...

    Los drones lanzados la noche del 5 al 6 de enero contra la base aérea rusa Jmeimim en Siria volaron desde el suroeste de la zona de distensión de Idlib, controlada por la oposición "moderada", reporta RIA Novosti citando a Krásnaya Zvezdá, el medio oficial del Ministerio de Defensa ruso.

    Según precisa la publicación, "el lanzamiento de drones se realizó desde el área del poblado de Muazzara, ubicado en el suroeste de la zona de distensión de Idlib, controlada por las formaciones armadas de la llamada oposición 'moderada'".

    En relación con el hecho, el Ministerio de Defensa ruso envió una carta al jefe de Estado Mayor de Turquía, el general Hulusi Akar, y al jefe de la Organización Nacional de Inteligencia de Turquía, Hakan Fidan.

    Estos documentos, de acuerdo con el periódico, "señalan la necesidad de que Ankara cumpla con sus obligaciones para garantizar el cumplimiento del régimen de cese de hostilidades por parte de las formaciones armadas controladas, y acelere las labores para el establecimiento de puestos de observación en la zona de distensión de Idlib para evitar ataques de drones contra cualquier objetivo"....actualidad.rt.com

  4. The drones that attacked Hmeymim air base earlier this month flew out of the area in the southwest of the de-escalation zone Idlib controlled by the so-called "moderate" opposition, the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper, the official publication of the Russian Defense Ministry, said on Wednesday.

    The ministry reported earlier this month that 13 drones had been used in attempted attacks on two Russian military facilities in Syria on January 6. Ten of them targeted the Hmeymim air base and three were sent toward the Tartus naval base.

    "According to the Russian Defense Ministry, it was established that the launch of the drones was carried out from the area of ​​the Muazar settlement located in the southwestern part of Idlib de-escalation zone controlled by the armed formations of the so-called 'moderate' opposition," the statement said.

    It is noted that in connection with this incident, the Russian Defense Ministry had sent letters to the Chief of the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces, Gen. Hulusi Akar, and Head of Turkey's National Intelligence Organization, Hakan Fidan.
    "The documents indicate the need for Ankara to fulfill its obligations to ensure compliance with the ceasefire regime by the armed formations under its control and to step up work on the installation of observation posts in Idlib de-escalation zone in order to prevent such attacks by UAVs against any objects," the statement added.

  5. The recent drone attack on Russian bases in Syria was launched from an area near Idlib, which is controlled by Turkish-backed rebel forces, the Russian military said. Moscow reportedly complained to Ankara about the attack...

    The assault last Saturday involved 13 primitive unmanned aircraft and was thwarted by the defenses of the two bases, an airfield near Latakia and a port site in Tartus. The Russian military said the drones had been launched from the village of Muazzara, in the south-western part of the Idlib governorate, which was designated a “de-escalation zone” under an arrangement negotiated by Russia, Turkey and Iran.

  7. Nach dem Drohnenangriff auf die beiden russischen Militärstützpunkte in Syrien spekulieren Experten über eine Rolle des Westens dabei. Der russische Militärexperte Wladimir Korowin hält eine Verwicklung der USA und ihrer Nato-Partner für möglich...

    In einer am Mittwoch erschienenen offiziellen Mitteilung des russischen Verteidigungsministeriums heißt es, die Drohnen seien aus dem unter Kontrolle der sogenannten gemäßigten Opposition stehenden südwestlichen Teil der Deeskalationszone Idlib gestartet worden.

    Nach Angaben des Experten Korowin waren die Drohnen nicht chaotisch, sondern „ziemlich geradewegs“ geflogen. Deshalb seien ihre Startorte leicht zu erkennen gewesen. „Ich hoffe, dass diesen Erkenntnissen eine umfassende Analyse der Satellitendaten gefolgt ist. Später wurde bekannt, dass zu dem Zeitpunkt des Angriffs auf die russischen Basen ein US-Jet vom Typ Poseidon in der Nähe geortet worden sei“, so Korowin.
    Nach seinen Angaben war der Poseidon von einem britischen Stützpunkt auf Zypern aus gestartet. Dies könnte dafür sprechen, dass die Nato ihre Finger im Spiel habe, so der Experte.
