A Russian deputy foreign minister says expert estimates demonstrate that terrorists in Syria are employing Western-designed drones to launch attacks against Russian facilities in the Arab country.

“We are constantly registering the mass usage of this method to stage attacks on Russian bases in Syria. Meanwhile, the drones that are being used are not amateurish. Experts note … that Western specialists’ developments are being used,” Sputnik quoted Oleg Syromolotov as saying on Thursday.

The drones, equipped with Western technology, are not manufactured manually, he added.

The Russian diplomat made the comments during a speech he delivered at the second Countering Illicit Arms Trafficking in the Context of Fighting International Terrorism held in capital Moscow.

Syromolotov’s remarks were made two days after Russian troops foiled a drone attack by foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants against the strategic Hmeimim air base in Syria’s western coastal province of Latakia.

Syria’s state-run al-Ikhbariyah Syria television news network reported on Tuesday that two terrorist drones had been spotted in the vicinity of the base and destroyed at a safe distance before they could inflict any damage or casualties.

Terrorists every so often launch drone attack against Hmeimim. Almost all the attacks are foiled by Russia’s anti-aircraft defense systems stationed in the base.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Syromolotov said Moscow believed that global cooperation is necessary and both legal and technological means should be used to combat terrorism.

Russia has been helping Syrian government troops and their allied fighters in ongoing battles against terrorists across the conflict-plagued Arab country.

The Russian military assistance, which began in September 2015 at the official request of the Syrian government, has proved effective as Syrians continue to recapture key areas from the Daesh terrorist group and other foreign-backed terror outfits.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.

  1. (DISASSOCIATED PRESS) – Russian deputy foreign minister, Lego Syrio Molotov, says experts have demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that the main group behind ISIS is the Rothschild Terrorist Organization.

    Europe, the US, NATZO, israel, Shoddy Arabia, the Gulf & Country Club All-ies, and other soon to be bribed governments are all subsidiaries of the RTO.

    Syria’s state-run Al Akhbar Siryas Television News Network (AASTNN) reported on Tuesday that two US terrorist vultures had been spotted in the vicinity of the base and shot down at a safe distance before they could stink up the high heavens.

    RTO backed terrorists ever so often launch lame duck attacks against the military base ad Heimenim. Almost all the quack attacks are foiled by Russia’s anti-fowl defense systems stationed in the base.

    Syria has been bombed by the RTO Rot Bank Terrorists since March 2011, the time of the eruption of the Fukushima Radioactive Geyser Dragon from the pits of israHell.

    The Syrius government says the RTO is behind the Takfiri squads and many other zionist zew-sponsored terrorist groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.
