Terrorist Attack on Hmeymim Airbase; Saudi Arabia Intercepted Missiles; U.S. Nano Drones
PANAGYURISHTE (BM) – Terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra (outlawed in Russia) tried to attack Russia’s Hmeymim Airbase in Syria with a multiple launch rocket system, TASS reported.
The air defense alert force repelled the attack and destroyed the target, the Russian Defense Ministry told journalists on Monday.
“On the evening of May 19 terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra tried to attack the Russian airbase Hmeymim with a multiple launch rocket system. At about 20:00 on Sunday the terrorists launched six projectiles from the Idlib de-escalation zone on the Russian airbase. The air defense alert force destroyed all the projectiles,” the Defense Ministry said
Saudi Arabia said on Monday that it had intercepted two missiles in Mecca province fired by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis, who earlier denied having targetted Islam’s holiest site, Reuters reported.
The foiled strike comes at a time of heightened tensions between Tehran and Gulf Arab states and a roughly four-year conflict in Yemen largely seen as a proxy war between the two sides.
Training course for the U.S. Army’s new first personal Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), known as nano drone, kicks off at Fort Bragg, Defence Blog reported.
Soldiers did more than just inventory and take possession of the system during the week-long fielding. The Soldiers were also trained via classroom instruction about the system’s capabilities, its controls, and how to operate it.
