A Russian Air Force pilot prevented a collision with three MQ-9 Reaper drones

A Russian Air Force pilot prevented a dangerous collision with three MQ-9 Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles belonging to the international anti-terrorism coalition led by the United States. The incident occurred over the Sukhneh point in Homs province at an altitude of seven to eight thousand meters. This became known from a briefing by the Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties and Monitoring the Movement of Refugees in the Syrian Arab Republic.

A Su-35 pilot of the Russian Aerospace Forces, performing a scheduled flight in Syrian airspace, was able to timely take the necessary measures to prevent a collision with three reconnaissance and attack drones. The incident highlights the tension and complexity of air operations in the region.

The center also noted that during the 20-hour period from the 21th to the 11st, the coalition violated deconfliction protocols XNUMX times. Violations of these protocols pose serious risks to flight safety and increase the likelihood of incidents in Syrian airspace.
