Terrorist militants in Syria are plotting an attack against the Khmeimim Air Base using long-range drones, Oleg Yegorov, deputy head of the Russian MoD’s Center for Reconciliation in Syria reported.

Russia operates two military facilities in Syria – the naval facility in Tartus and the Khmeimim Air Base in Latakia Governorate. Khmeimim has come under terrorist fire repeatedly since its deployment in 2015.


According to information received by the [Center for Reconciliation], militants from the Jahbat al-Nusra* and the Turkistan Islamic Party* are planning an attack on the Khmeimim Air Base using strike UAV’s and kamikaze drones.

The Russian officer said that a large number of drones intended for use in the attack had been assembled near Jisr ash-Shughur, a city in northwest Syria occupied by Nusra and the TIP, with some of the UAV having a range of up to 70 km.


According to the MoD’s information, the terrorists likely plan to use some of the drones to try to divert the attention of Russian air defenses in order to strike at the base.

Between 2015 and 2017, the Russian air grouping at Khmeimim proved instrumental in assisting Syrian and Hezbollah ground forces and Iranian Quds Force advisors in freeing wide swathes of Syria.

Especially Syrian oil fields need to be protected and form a cacophony of US-, Gulf State- and Turkish-backed terrorist groups and rebels attempting to overthrow the Syrian government.

If this occurs without a major response from Russia it will show how weak Russia is to – 1-USA 2-Zionist Israel 3-Turkey 4-EU 5-UK I find it exasperating that Russia cant get it into its head that all the talk in the world gets you nowhere when your enemy knows how mentally weak you are -and uses it to get your own people- your own friends destroyed .

Thoze Zionist pricks can only terrorize truth and development, they like bloody wars to maintain their evil reputation. For now Russia supports India and many other nations with military technology and delivers free grain to Africa. That’s about 2.5 billion people on their hands for this episode. The Zionists have nobody to support their campaign, except for a handful of bribed and extorted government puppets in some of the mentioned Anglo Zio-Nazi countries.
