Sputnik – 27.05.2017

An Israeli combat drone was downed on Friday in southwestern Syria after killing three soldiers , local media reported Saturday.
Troops loyal to the Syrian government shot down a drone overnight suspected of killing three soldiers on Friday in southwestern Syria, according to the reports.

The armed drone was struck down by anti-aircraft units of the Syrian ground forces operating in the Quneitra province, the Al-Masdar newspaper said.

According to the outlet, Syrian troops were attacked in the area between the towns of Al Hamidiyah and Abu Shabta as they made in-roads into territories held by militant forces.

Syrian armed forces reportedly shot down two suspected Israeli drones in the past couple of months.

Syria and Israel have been technically at war since Israeli forces took control over a large part of Golan Heights five decades ago.

  1. I can only hope this is factual. The goddam Zionists running the Zioentity so-called Israel have enjoyed impunity for far too long. Marauding through land and airspace of neighboring sovereign nations, sucking up US taxpayers’ dollars in the face of US laws that prohibit such transfer of US funds, brazenly and continually violating international law, working with the US (and other nations’) Zionists in forming “entangling alliances” that favor only the Zioentity, and — above all — violating standards of justice and human-rights conventions, persecuting the bodies and psyches of the hapless Palestinians, and perpetuating the belligerent, illegal, immoral, military occupation of Palestine: this Zioentity has to go, consigned to the darkest pages of history. Viva Syria! Viva Palestine!

    • And Israel complains when Iran tests a rocket for self defence purposes? And the USA threatens Iran for their efforts to ensure Iran’s own security?
      Syria is perfectly entitled to shoot down anything menacing its own air space.
