    Syrian Army Receives Advanced Russia-Made Missile System amid Preparation for Idlib Battle

    TEHRAN (FNA)- Modern Russian man-portable anti-tank guided missiles on Kornet-D has been deployed in Northern Lattakia to be used in the Syrian Army's upcoming anti-terrorism operation in Idlib province, a media outlet reported on Tuesday.



    The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted military sources as reporting that the Syrian Army, deployed in Northern and Northeastern Lattakia, has received modern Russia-made Kornet weapons.

    The army will use the new system to trace and track military vehicles and militants' gathering, Sputnik said, adding that the new system is capable of penetrating 1,300 mm into armored vehicles.

    The missile system can track the target up to 10km, Sputnik said, adding that the system will be deployed in the entire battlefields in Lattakia and Hama, so, military vehicles of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) will come within the range of the system's laser missiles.

    The sources further told the agency that the newly-received Russia-made weapon is compatible with anti-tanks missile units of the army, adding that the army, deployed in Eastern Lattakia, has been capable of intercepting a vehicle of Turkistani groups on a road from Bdama to Idlib.  

    The Arabic-language website of RT reported in January that the army was vastly using Mirage-2 Electronic Defense System to deactivate the US-manufactured TOW anti-tank missiles.

    The Arabic RT further said that the System that was mounted on the army tanks, armored and light vehicles was capable of deactivating TOW missiles.

    The Mirage-2 System was equipped with more noise breaks in comparison with the older version of Mirage-1.

    A new attack of unmanned aircraft at the airbase Khemeymim

    As reported by the TASS agency on July 1, 2018, servicemen of the Russian military base Khmeimim in Syria destroyed on the night of Sunday [July 1] a group of small air targets of unknown origin. The representative of the base said this on Sunday.

"All air targets for the air defense system of the Russian air base were destroyed. " A spokesman for the Russian aviabase noted that there was no casualty or material damage at the air base. The Russian air base functions in a planned mode.

    Nice although I am surprised that AT-6C wasn't provided imagine it would have been cheaper and with thermobaric warhead ideal at taking out TOW teams.

    Laser guided 122mm and 120mm rounds would also be ideal at taking TOW teams and provide greater ranges from vehicle to enemy

    Military veterans to Kremlin: Come clean about Syria mission

    I'm wondering, is this just more rabble rousing by the Western press again looking to discredit Russia's (so far successful) military campaign by amplifying whatever negative coverage they can?

    No wonder there was that report about 1000s of Russians seen in Palmyra. Russian forces branded as police or actual police units seem to be all over the place now. Peacekeeping forces by a different name.

    This, if true could need yet more of them.

    Looks like an agreement on southern Syria has been reached, SAA to withdraw from four villages it captured lately, while FSA+HTS will withdraw to northern Syria, the Syrian Police will enter all the areas with Russian forces, SAA will go back to border + military bases only.
