Russia foils massive attack on its Syrian bases by electronically “controlling” 6 drones, downing seven


The Defense Ministry in Moscow revealed on Monday, Jan. 8: A massive terrorist drone attack on Russian military and naval bases in Syria was thwarted by electronic measures and anti-air weapon fire.

The statement said that overnight on Jan. 6, Syrian “militants” (terrorists) sent a large swarm of unmanned aerial vehicles to attack Russia’s Tartus Naval base and Khmeimim air base. Russian defenses took control of six drones and its Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and gun system shot down another seven. DEBKAfile’s military sources learned from the Russian statement that they used electronic measures to manipulate the UAVs’ navigation systems and bring them down intact. Moscow has now launched an urgent technical analysis of the captured drones, which were revealed capable of enabling terrorists to conduct attacks from a range of some 100km, and discovered using for the first time modern guidance technologies on satellite GPS.
Russian security services are also urgently investigating who supplied these advanced UAVs to terrorists, warning that they make it possible for them to conduct air strikes anywhere in the world.

On Saturday, Jan. 6, Syrian military sources reported that their air defenses had brought down two drones flying over the Russian Khmeimim air base with a load of mortar shell warheads. The Syrians identified them as belonging to the Islamist group, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. It is not clear whether the Russian and Syrian statements apply to the same incident.

    I have heard rumors that the attack was carried out by Iran. Iran is upset that the Russians are planning to put Hezbollah and the Revolutionary Guard back in its place and send them packing. Russia wants to dominate the scene in Syria and there is no room for two powers on the same territory. This had nothing to do with Americans or Israelis. This has the footprint of the Revolutionary Guard all over it. Look at the technology and you will be able to match it with orders from North Korea, China and parts of Europe that are sending it to Iran under the radar. The oil shipments to China from Iran (like the one ship now sinking and polluting the sea off China at this time) are being paid for by a transfer of this new technological capability into the hands of Revolutionary Guards. We are likely to see more attacks on Russia by Hezbollah – Iran in the near future if my sources are correct.

        There are not enough spoils of war in Syria to satisfy both Russians and Iranians…one of the two groups will take a back seat or have to leave but that will mean all-out war between Russia and Iran. Turkey is likely to join hands with Iran to push out the Russians. Syria will be is Russia’s 2nd Afghanistan.

      Arabs are their own worst enemy, fighting Israel for 70 years while Russia, Iran, US-Britain, and Turkey are dividing and conquering the Arab world. If they were smart they would be aligning with Israel to expel all foreign powers. Saudi Arabia’s new crown prince might just be the smart Arab we’ve been waiting for.

      If what you say turns out to be correct, we will soon be seeing the last days of Hezbollah—–and Iran—— since the Russians won’t let anyone stand in their way of achieving their agenda and they couldn’t give a “rodent’s rectal aperture” what anyone thinks about their policies or their actions!

      At the time the Gas Laser was invented, was Iran an “Islamic Republic” like it is today?

      Koorosh, Javan LEFT Iran because Iran is backward, primitive, suicidal. Iran had and has NOTHING to offer Javan.

      Since Fascist Iran calls for death to America and Israel, it is only fair to wish for death to Fascist Iran – and the US and Israel can destroy Fascist Iran.

      Your fascist ayatollahs will be directly responsible for the death of 80M. The only hope is that the Persian people overthrow the ayatollahs, hang them and bring peace to the World.

        May certainly be true, but the USA is much larger and has more people and money than Israel.
        But Israel, taking into account its very small size and small population with respect to the USA, is not doing too bad when it comes to innovation and opportunities for its citizens——-they’re certainly trying hard to succeed!

    Just want to share thoughts.
    1. Israel to attack Russia basis in Syria ? Certainly not. Israeli-Russia links are good. Israel’s enemy is Iran (Iranian government, not iranian people).
    2. ISIS to attack Russia basis in Syria ? Probably yes. Russia defeated ISIS in Syria.
    3. Iran to attack Russia basis in Syria ? Very probably yes. After both Russia and Iran joined to defeat ISIS, they clearly have now to achieve their strategic, own, and specific goals. There is no room for both Russia and Iran to rule the Syria’s after war. There is no room in Syria for two great powers to rule in Syria.

    We have to wait after the on going russian enquiry. They captured 6 drones and they will soon learn where they come from. They will know all, and we will probably also know their conclusions.

    Just a last comment: there is no need to insults.
