DAMASCUS, (BM) – According local sources yesterday Turkish troops, using Turkish-made MLRS that arrived in Syria a few days ago, tried to launch a missile attack on the Russian military base Khmeimim, hiding behind the legend that these were terrorist actions, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, citing news agency AviaPro.
When deployed directly in the Al-Kabin area, Russian fighters delivered an unexpected blow, turning the Turkish MLRS into a group of scrap metal and thereby foiling an attack on the Russian air force base.
Except the local sources, this attack on the Russian military was also reflected in a website that closely follows the events in Syria – liveuamap.com
According to some reports, in the area from which Turkish troops tried to attack the Khmeimim airbase, there were at least three T-122 Sakarya MLRS, which together would make it possible to fire at least 120 missiles at the Russian military airbase.
Given the fact that the attack was thwarted, and the Turkish side has not yet commented on the charges of trying to strike at the Khmeimim airbase, experts believe that the preparation for the attacks was possible thanks to an unmanned aerial vehicle.
Experts express very serious fears that Turkey will transfer heavy artillery to the militants, since with a significant range of destruction of targets, the Russian Khmeimim air base could well be attacked by terrorists.
