PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Your briefly report on February 4 in last twelve hours from BulgarianMilitary.com:
Russian anti-aircraft defense systems repelled a massive missile strike
Attempts by the Turkish military to launch an unexpected attack against the Syrian government forces in the north-eastern part of the Arab Republic ended in a catastrophic failure for the Turkish military command.
Thanks to the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft defense systems located along the front line, most of the Turkish military missiles launched were brought down on approach, and therefore, the dead and injured were avoided.
According to various sources, the air assets of the Syrian army, and it is mainly about the Pantsir-S air defense missile systems, previously delivered to the Arab Republic by the Russian military, shot down about 40 Turkish missiles aimed at the main position areas of the Syrian military.
Part of the missiles nevertheless caused some damage to the Syrian army, however, according to local sources, the Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar’s data about the fact that we are talking about 76 dead Syrian military are absolutely fake.
“Turkey can only lie about its achievements. There are several casualties and material damage, but the rest is fake,” one of the Syrian troops said.
Militants bomb Egypt-Israel gas pipeline in northern Sinai
Unknown gunmen have blown up a gas pipeline between Egypt and Israel in Sinai Peninsula’s northern area of Bir Al-Abed, Israeli local media reported yesterday.
Ynet News quoted official security sources as saying that “six masked men had placed and detonated explosive devices under the gas tube.”
The sources added that the Israeli authorities had stopped the pipeline’s gas pumping operations “in order to control the massive fire.”
On its part, the Israeli energy ministry said the flow of natural gas transferred from Israel to Egypt through the pipeline was continuing to be “undisturbed,” adding that the ministry was examining the attack reports with the relevant authorities.
This is not the first time for the pipeline – which transfers gas from Egypt to Israel and Jordan – to be attacked. It was blown up and its operations were interrupted around 15 times during the 2011 upspring period.
