BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – An unknown aircraft carried out an attack on a group of jihadist rebels that were traveling through the Idlib countryside on Thursday.

According to the reports, a pick-up truck carrying some jihadist rebels was targeted by the unknown aircraft as it was traveling through the northern region of the Al-Ghaab Plain.

The strike reportedly destroyed the jihadist pick-up truck in the town of Al-Ankaweh and killed the two militants that were traveling inside of the vehicle.

No one has claimed responsibility for this latest attack; however, some reports have speculated that it was carried out by a Russian suicide drone.

The Russian military has been conducting several reconnaissance flights over the Idlib Governorate since mid-March, so it could very well be their aerospace forces that are behind this strike.

F-35 or Rafale… Russians would have advertised their brand new suicide-drone…
US and/or EU relations with Turkey being “complicated”, they may not want to publicly advertise such strike. F-35 being stealth and Rafale behaving just like a Klingon vessel, these are the best platforms if you don’t want to leave fingerprints behind you.
