The Syrian Arab Army’s 11th Tank Division downed another  unmanned aircraft belonging to the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Victory Front) in northern Idlib.

According to a military source in Idlib, the drone was seen flying above the 11th Division’s positions at Brouma before the soldiers in the village were ordered to bring down the unmanned aircraft and recover its remains.

Unlike the U.S. Predator Drone that was downed last week,  this unmanned aircraft was rather small and made of plastic; it is the fifth drone the SAA has downed in three weeks, with four of them belonging to Jabhat Al-Nusra.

The militants of Jabhat Al-Nusra attacked a National Defense Forces (NDF) checkpoint west of Idlib City on Al-Mastouma Road; however, the attack was repelled after fierce clashes that engulfed this rural area for five hours on Monday.

North of Idlib City, the Islamic Front (Jabhat  Al-Islamiya) contingents attempted to break into the villages of Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa, but they were met with fierce resistance from the NDF; thus, forcing their withdrawal four hours into the fight.
