BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out a rare attack, today, using their predator drones against the jihadist rebels in northwest Syria, a military source in Latakia told Al-Masdar News.
According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army’s attack drones struck the jihadist positions inside the northern Hama town of Hakoura.
The source said the attack resulted in heavy casualties for the jihadist rebels; this was later confirmed after opposition activists reported several casualties within their ranks.
Opposition activists claimed the strikes in northern Hama were carried out by drones from the Russian Hmeimim Airbase in southwest Latakia.
The drone strikes by the Syrian military were carried out after Russian spy planes spent much of the day observing the jihadist positions around the demilitarized zone.
