Russian military base in Syria attacked by mysterious drone swarm

Gen. of the Turkish Air Force and deputy chairman of the Patriotic Party (Vatan Party), said that militants have long developed such plans and terrorist groups are using drone attacks to achieve their goals.

Earlier reports said that a subversive militant group had shelled Hmeymim airbase on December 31, 2017, killing two Russian military servicemen.

Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the Pentagon's Joint Staff director, said only that Dunford and Gerasimov, the chief of Russia's General Staff, had a "frank and cordial exchange of views", but the phone call came after the Russian Defense Ministry suggested the USA may have played a part in the drone attack.

Russian Federation has also now claimed a victory following a swarm of drone attacks last week that targeted Hmeymim air base and Tartus Naval Facility overnight on January 5 and January 6.

Moscow has claimed that the drones, which were made of wood, tape and lawn mower engines, were too sophisticated and operated from too far a distance to have been executed by themselves.

The Russian Defense Ministry added that all manpower and materiel of Russia's multilevel military intelligence system in Syria had been involved in the operation.

According to Novikov, creating this sort of weapon is impossible in home-made conditions.

Idlib has been a source of tension between regime-backer Russian Federation and rebel-supporter Turkey, with Ankara accusing the Syrian regime of stepping up its offensive on key rebel-held areas there. The agreement has helped reduce fighting and warm ties between Russian Federation and Turkey. It's believed to be the first instance that a drone swarm attacking military has been officially documented. He added that Russian Federation knows who was or were behind the provocative attacks, however, didn't disclose the names but to add that it wasn't Turkey.

Putin on Thursday held a telephonic conversation with the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during which the two discussed the Syrian attacks and agreed to 'intensify the coordination of the two nations in Syria'. "We know who they were and how much they paid for that provocation".
