(TASS) A predator drone capable of hitting targets on the ground was registered in the area where the UN humanitarian convoy came under attack in northern Aleppo on the evening of September 19th, the Spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Igor Konashenkov, said on Wednesday.

“The Russian Defense Ministry has at its disposal, objective air situation monitoring data gathered on the evening of September 19th, when the humanitarian convoy was attacked,” Konashenkov added.

“On the evening of September 19th, an attack drone belonging to the international coalition was registered in that area at an altitude of 3,600 meters.”

“It was flying at a speed of about 200 kilometers per hour. The drone had taken off from Turkey’s Incirlik air base. Our air situation monitoring means identified the drone as a Predator,” Konashenkov said.
