On Saturday, the National Defense Forces (NDF) “Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra” (Al-Quneitra Hawks Brigade) downed an unidentified aircraft that was caught circling their positions inside the Al-Quneitra Governorate’s east countryside.

As the soldiers of the Liwaa Suqour Al-Quneitra approached the downed aircraft, they were able to confirm that this was one of the Israeli Air Force’s unmanned reconnaissance drones operating inside this province in southern Syria.

Due to its relative size, local sources reported that the Syrian Air Defense downed an Israeli airplane above the Al-Quneitra Governorate town of Al-Ba’ath; however, these reports were incorrect and confirmed by local NDF fighters as an Israeli drone.

According to a military source inside Al-Quneitra, the unmanned reconnaissance drone circled the Syrian Armed Forces’ defensive positions in the towns of Hader, Al-Ba’ath, Al-Hamidiyah, Al-Mosahra, and Khan Arnabeh before it was finally downed on Saturday afternoon.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Spokesperson has not issued a comment about this incident and no statement has been issued regarding the multitude of airstrikes the Israeli Air Force carried out in the Al-Quneitra Governorate on Saturday night.

Recently, the Israeli Air Force conducted 21 airstrikes over the Syrian provinces of Al-Quneitra and Rif Dimashq after the IDF Spokesperson alleged that four rockets entered Upper Galilee from the Syrian border; this has not been proven true as of yet.

The recent Israeli aggression was the largest attack on Syria’s sovereignty since the 1973 October War; it was reported that these airstrikes also killed 5 Syrian Arab Army soldiers that were identified as the following: Ghayeth ‘Aadl ‘Aisha, ‘Abid Mohammad Hishaan, Mohammad ‘Ali Hishaan, Mohammad Tayseir Al-Mohammad, and Yousif Fatihi Al-Khateeb.
