Militant Groups Using Drones As Weapon

It said militants had used the province as the launchpad for a drone attack on two Russian bases in the last week.

Speaking to reporters, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu accused Syria's Assad government of launching attacks on moderate opposition in Idlib, which "could damage the process of political resolution".

It was also further noted that detonators used in the explosive attached to the drones were of foreign manufacture. Among the questions being asked in Moscow, he said, are whether the Russian military had adequately secured the base and whether it had failed to detect the acquisition of new technology by its adversaries.

The ministry said training by advanced countries is necessary to accurately conduct GPS-guided attacks. In September, a defector from the US-backed Maghawir al-Thawra group said his unit used to trade the US-supplied weapons with the terrorists while their American instructors seemingly turning a blind eye to the illicit dealings.

But, none of the rebel groups is known to be within mortar range of the base, and they typically assert responsibility for all their operations.

The Russian Defense Ministry said on January 8 that there were no casualties or damage as a result of the attacks on the Hmeimim air base and Tartus naval facility.

Idlib has become a focal point of the Syrian war as government forces and allied militia have thrust towards an insurgent-held air base.

"In two years, the Russian armed forces, together with the Syrian army, have defeated the most lethal group of global terrorists", state news agency Tass quoted Putin as saying.

The Russian Ministry of Defense had previously insinuated the United States had helped.

Putin said on December 28 that more than 48,000 Russian military personnel had served in the operation in Syria, and that Russia's presence at Hmeimim and Tartus would be "permanent".

The Russian defence ministry responded to initiral American denials by claiming the attack needed a "high-level engineer" and that "not every country is able to get sharp coordinates using space intelligence data". It was at least the second time he had made such an announcement since March 2016.

Last month, the Russian army began a partial withdrawal from Syria under the command of President Vladimir Putin, soon after Syrian troops supported by Russian servicemen completed the destruction of the Islamic State in the war-torn country.
