Syria, March 24: a new attack on the Khmeimim air base


The situation in Syria remains tense. On March 24, militants from one of the terrorist groups carried out an attack with a drone on a Russian aviation base "Hmeimim."


This is not the first such attack on a military facility used by the Russian Aerospace Forces. As before, the terrorists used an attack unmanned aerial vehicle to attack. However, air defense systems managed to neutralize the terrorist attack. According to some reports, the drone was destroyed.

Following the attack on the Khmeimim airbase, militants raided the border of the provinces of Hama and Latakia. In response to the artillery of the Syrian Arab army, they had to open fire on the positions of militants in the area of ​​the city of Kaban. It is known that fire was fought on the fortifications that are occupied by members of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham organization banned in Russia.

Artillery shelling took place in the province of Idlib. The fire was fired in the area of ​​the settlements of Al-Bara, Al-Fateira, Kansafra, Kafr Uweid, but no casualties or equipment were reported. There were also shootings in the area of ​​the villages of Az-Ziyara and As-Sirmaniya. It is known that during an attack by Kurdish fighters on Kurdish villages north of Aleppo, an elderly local resident was wounded. The explosion occurred in one of the restaurants in Idlib itself.

Information has appeared on social networks about looting, which is carried out by militants of the pro-Turkish group Failak al-Majid. This group operates in the western part of Aleppo province. The Turkish authorities call it the opposition to the ruling regime, but the locals are sure that the opposition is banal bandits who do not hesitate to rob and terrorize the local population. In turn, the Turkish military command turns a blind eye to the crimes of controlled groups.

Explosions have also been reported in the area of ​​the city of Abu Kemal in the province of Deir ez-Zor. Apparently, the explosions occurred as a result of the launch of missiles from the Badia desert in the area controlled by the Shiite militia, an allied Syrian Arab army. Thus, the militants of opposition groups could organize the shelling. Also, in the province of Deir ez-Zor, rocket attacks were launched on the outskirts of the city of Hajin, where the headquarters of the intelligence service of the Kurdish militia is located.

Regarding the situation on the M4 highway, Turkey still promises to restore order in this territory, but it is premature to talk about any success of the Turkish side. It is clear that it is not in the interests of Ankara to push back the pro-Turkish armed forces, which the Turkish leadership really needs to organize further provocations against the Syrian Arab army.

At the same time, the Turkish military command assures that in the near future it will expand the patrol route on the M4 highway, which is carried out jointly with the military personnel of the Russian military police. According to the Turkish Army Colonel Ukay Sagyr Oglu, the main thing is to ensure security along the patrol route.

At the same time, the Turkish army continues to work to expand the number of roadblocks in the province of Idlib. In addition, it became known about the movement of the next Turkish convoy with military equipment in the area of ​​the Kyrykhan crossing. The Turkish command plans to deploy armored vehicles to further strengthen its troops in the region.

This circumstance, as we have already reported, once again underscores Ankara’s genuine intentions - to remain in the Syrian province for an indefinite period. Of course, in order to maintain a military presence in Idlib, pacification of the Syrian province by the Turkish leadership is not beneficial.

    new attack on the Khmeimim air base
    As soon as the militants stop these attacks, the base will just become bored ... They have thrown them away, where they are launching these drones from. Well, isn’t it time it was already to test shock UAVs on such “aircraft models” that it wouldn’t be otherwise

        But is it really difficult for our military to detect the source of the control signal and destroy it with any high-precision munition !?

          Barmalei do not have a control signal. :) The simplest wooden birds from the GPS control plus a simple inertia. They are jammed by electronic warfare and sometimes blows off a target with a whole flock of wind.

          I wonder why our generally reported lone drone. Could it be that the Turks skidded where they were not allowed?

            From Latakia to Idlib - 90 km., And to the Turkish border - 45 km.
            So, nothing happens there without the participation or control of the Turks. While we will chase drones, and not strike at their bases, this will continue indefinitely.

      What for? This is an excellent pretext for starting the next operation in Idlib when the SAA is ready for it. request If these attacks and flights of drones were not there, then it would be worth coming up with them.
      And the Turks will have the opportunity to say that they did everything they could, but the slippers from the KhTS themselves spoiled everything. A couple of months to prepare, and then you can go on the offensive on the m4 highway.

          I repeat. As soon as the drone flew, these all had already fallen.

          But as a specialist shooting from a couch on drones ... Flag in hand.
          It remains only to find the command phone in Syria and transmit these recommendations.

          Or are they sending the most stupid to Syria?
          In my opinion, the smart are fighting there. Others on the sofas, "smart nonsense" make a fuss from the sofa

            You can squeeze as much as you like, but that is how the Israelis suppressed the "missile activity" of the Palestinians. You just do not understand how this happens. UAVs are on duty for a long time in a certain square, being in the air for up to a day, giving way to the same UAV. In case of detection of some kind of suspicious activity, visual control begins on what is happening. And when doubts about hostile actions disappear, immediately there is a command for destruction. That's why such UAVs are valuable, they can hang on threatening squares for days, in immediate readiness for action.

      Duc, these "crazy hands" collecting these drummers on their knees, may well sit on one of the Turkish bases, where the Turks have kindly provided the "bearded kulibin" one of the inflatable hangars for long-term rent and a couple of technical mentors. To take out this “miracle of aircraft industry” for a couple of kilometers from the Turkish b / post and to “set it free” is not a long and difficult task. However, the fact is that these same pranks on the part of the bearded led to the fact that Ankara lost just half of the Idlib province in just a few weeks. Is Edik really so insane that he doesn’t understand that adherence to such tactics can lead to a resumption of the CAA and, if not loss, then circumcision of another half of the territory that Ankara is now holding?

        Of course, they can also bring “wood”. As usual, legendary and what else, but you need to be trained to work with the legendary, and then wherever you spit, everywhere legendary, wherever you look, there are only legends around. Forgot to ask weapons for Lend-Lease, also legends? I’m tired of your war already and my parents fought against Hitler (the father of the gunsmith at the RAF unfortunately didn’t live to this day, my mother was 14 years old, and tomorrow my mother will be 89. That's how we live, and you have all the legends

    Any armed opposition in any country is subject to destruction by definition, because it is not an opposition, but a rebel gang.
