Greek Media: Turks Behind Attack on Hmeimim


On the evening of June 22, unmanned aerial vehicles of jihadist militants raided the Russian base of Khmeimim in Syria. Attack witnesses heard about 20 explosions. Experts of the Greek publication Pentapostagma believe that Turkey is behind the attack on the Russian aerospace forces base.


Militant drones flew from the side of Jebla - in the vicinity of this city there are Syrian air defense units that opened fire on enemy drones. Initially, UAVs moved from de-escalation-controlled militants of the Idlib territory.

In total, Russian air defense in Khmeimim managed to bring down two unmanned vehicles. During the military clash, the air base did not receive material or other damage. Information about the incident was brought to the Turkish armed forces through a joint focal point to investigate and take measures to prevent terrorist threats.

Ankara, according to Pentapostagma, incites jihadists to attack Russian targets in Syria and Libya, following a specific plan. The Turks, acting in many directions, want to divert the forces of the Russian Federation, while they themselves are preparing for an attack on the Libyan city of Sirte. Other analysts are talking about a possible soon strike by Turkey at the base in Al-Jufra, where, according to a number of media reports, there are Russian military aircraft and mercenaries from PMCs.

    - As for this real next attack on Khmeimim; I personally think that everything is quite serious ...:
    - Indeed, most likely, trial preparations are underway for a massive attack on our base ... for delivering a global serious blow ...
    - And all these small raids-sabotage ...- this is just a clarification of our "response capabilities" and the location of our forces on Khmeimim ...
    - You just need to take radical emergency measures ... - that's all ... - Unfortunately, the Russian armed forces do not deliver preemptive strikes and do not carry out "preventive measures" to prevent such excesses; yes, they do not even carry out retaliatory actions after such raids-sabotage ... - It is believed that enough "patrolling" ... - Alas ...

      Most likely, these "experts" thought that they would shine with their bald patches and interfere with enemy UAVs ... - Well, you see ... - badly "shone" ...

      Well, you might think that you are a major specialist in these, and you know the operational situation in these places in every detail.
      The motives of this attack remain a mystery to me ... the Turks know that the base is well protected and nevertheless they are invading their jackals at our base.
      The effectiveness of such raids is zero.

    Erdogan holds the Kremlin for fools to feed him, despite the fact that he is fighting openly with Russia by terrorists. He considers GDP to be weak and silly.
