As a result of an air strike, at least two Syrian military personnel were killed, while, for unknown reasons, the “Pantsir-S” allowed the Turkish drone to approach it almost point-blank, which currently demonstrates the extremely low efficiency of these air defense systems.

On the presented video frames you can see the deployed ZRPK “Pantsir-S” near the city of Seraqib. At least two Syrian troops are located near the complex, and after a few seconds, a Turkish drone destroys the Pantsir-S air defense missile system with a direct strike.

Information on the activity of the Pantsir-S complex is confirmed by the video, which shows that the anti-aircraft missile systems are in the raised state, and the radar rotates.

However, given the video, the Turkish drone could destroy the Syrian complex from a distance of only a few kilometers, which indicates the fact that the Syrian military did not even know about the presence of UAVs.

The Syrian side has not yet commented on the destruction of the Russian-made air defense system, however, given the fact that this was done with a conventional air-to-surface missile, it is logical to assume that other air defense systems could be destroyed in this way.
