The unidentified aircraft the Syrian Air Defenses downed in the Latakia Governorate on Monday has been identified as a U.S.  MQ-1 Predator Done that was produced by the American weapons manufacturer “General Atomics.”

According to a military source, the drone was launched from the Blue Military Airport (Mataar Al-Azraq) in Jordan before it would enter Syrian airspace, flying over several provinces and military bases around the northern part of the country.

The drone was last seen flying over the Hareetan Highway in northern Aleppo (later downed in Latakia); it was likely capturing images of the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” that is currently operating in this part of the province.

Unhappy about the alleged downing of their aircraft, the U.S. State Department’s Spokesperson, Jen Psaki, issued a statement regarding the incident – she followed-up with a threat to the Syrian Government, warning them about targeting U.S. aerial assets.
