On Tuesday night, Russia’s Hmeymim Airbase in Syria destroyed two terrorist drones with surface-to-air missiles, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

“On the 4th of September, at night, the anti-aircraft weapons of Hmeimim Airbase destroyed two terrorist assault UAVs. In total, last month, 47 terrorist unmanned aerial vehicles were destroyed… in the area of Russia’s Hmeimim Airbase,” Konashenkov told reporters.

“On the same day [September 4], four planes from the Russian air unit deployed at the Hmeymim Airbase carried out strikes on Nusra Front* terrorist group targets in Idlib province with precision-guided munitions,” Konashenkov said.

According to the spokesman, the strikes were carried out on the terrorists’ storage facilities where they kept drones, located outside settlements, as well as “detected sites where assault drones were launched to carry out terrorist attacks on Russia’s Hmeimim Airbase and settlements in the provinces of Aleppo and Hama.”

“The Russian aircraft carried out all strikes solely on the identified terrorist targets, as confirmed through several channels, located far from settlements,” Konashenkov said.

He added that two Su-34 jets had also destroyed a workshop where terrorists assembled drones and a warehouse of explosives for them.Konashenkov noted that the multipurpose Su-35S fighter, equipped with high-precision ammunition, also destroyed a warehouse in which the man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS) of terrorists were stored.

Russia, alongside Iran and Turkey, is a guarantor of the ceasefire in Syria. Moscow has also been assisting Damascus both through supporting the struggle against terrorist groups and providing humanitarian aid to the residents of the crisis-torn country.

LOL, now Russians do Israeli-style strikes, just targetting the assets used on them…
I don’t recognise them : the Soviets would have pounded anything they’d have located, so would I do, and survivors would be shot again at…

Seems many do not agree and prefer the use of Israeli ‘t*t for tat’ strikes. I’m a simple guy : terrorists are fanatics no matter their side, are they Salafascists, Waharabids, Rafidassholes, Waffen-SS or whatever. If some understand how wrong and brainwashed they were, they can surrender and psychiatrists can help deprogramming ’em, others, well, they caught, as Churchill said, what is for men what hydrophobia rabies is for dogs. We shall not negotiate, we shall not compromise, it’s sad to say but until a vaccine is found (dubious), euthanasia is the only cure. And if some creeps inside of… Read more »

Because “Allah” is a myth. And their initial successes were cooked by the international community, I mean really everybody, not only the West, to have as much as possible of these looneys concentrating in a “kill zone”. It had to expand a bit to make’em believe their “Allah” was helping and make’em enough confident in their botched cause to move to the “caliphate” and more coward ones to openly use social media and so get easily spotted by NSA, Frenchelon, FSB, etc etc etc. Russian Air Force alone exterminated 86,000 cockroaches in Syria, mostly Nusra/JaI/FSA/Zenki or whatever they call themselves.… Read more »
