Moscow. Terrorists received the latest weapons and precise coordinates of Russian bases.
During the drone attack on Russian facilities in Syria on January 6 a US reconnaissance aircraft was circling in the air above. Such a statement was made at the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
“During the terrorists’ UAV attack on Russian military facilities in Syria the Navy reconnaissance plane Poseidon was over the Mediterranean, shuttling between Tartus and Khmeimim for more than four hours at an altitude of 7 thousand meters,” the ministry said.
The Defense Ministry stressed that there is no evidence of involvement of the United States in this raid, but in order to control unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drop bombs it is necessary to have a good engineering school, which the terrorists do not have.
“Once again we want to emphasize that the terrorists did not have this capability at all until recently,” the department added.
Recall that on the night of January 6, terrorists attacked Russian bases with 13 drones. The outcome was that the attack was repulsed, some drones were destroyed, and others were intercepted and sent for examination to decrypt their data.
