BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – Earlier this month, the Israeli Air Force carried out a powerful attack on a Syrian military site that stored several aircraft, including six MiG-29 jets, in eastern Homs.

The aircraft were badly damaged by the Israeli strikes, with new reports surfacing that they were transported from Syria to Iran for repair.

Citing a Russian military channel on Telegram, Avia.Pro reported that the six Syrian MiG-29 jets were transported from the Hmeimim Airbase in Latakia to the Hamadan Airbase in Iran.

“As follows from the data of the Telegram community of the ‘Notes of the Hunter‘, citing information from Iranian sources, Russia has transferred at least 6 MiG-29 fighters from Syria. At the moment, the fact for which purpose this was done remains unknown, however, according to some reports, we are not talking about the Russian Air Force fighters at all, but about the repaired, and probably modernized, Syrian Air Force fighters, which are actually armed combat aircraft,” Avia.Pro said.

“Today, the Tu-154 85042 route from Volga to Syria repeated with a stop at the Iranian Hamadan. The situation is starting to clear up a bit. According to reports of local aviation enthusiasts from Iran, we are dealing with the transfer of an entire group of MiG-29 fighters (approximately 6 units arrived),” the Telegram channel said, citing relevant data from Iranian information sources.

There has been comment from either the Russian or Syrian ministries of defense; however, satellite images from the site targeted by the Israeli Air Force showed the damage of MiG-29 jets.

I really do not know if SAA must thanks Russia for helping fixing their planes, or it must blame Russia for allowing Israel to attacks its planes.

Tu-154 has no room to fit a dismantled MiG-29, you may consider An-124 Ruslan after having removed Mig-29’s wings+tails, but Tu-154, no HËLL NO! This is no cargo aircraft, moreover, it’s a narrow-body.
Can someone ask Avia.Pro which vodka he’s high on or if he does weird drugs like Krokodil?
