MOSCOW, Russia – The allegations saying as many as 31 drones attacked Russian facilities in Syria in the small hours of January 6 are not true, a senior Russian Defense Ministry official said on Wednesday according to TASS.

“Participating in the attack on Russian military facilities in Syria on January 5-6 were 13 combat fixed-wing drones. The militants used ten drones in the attempt to hit Hmeymim and another three against Tartus,” the source said. 

“Claims to the effect a far greater number of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) was involved have nothing to do with the reality,” the source continued.

“All of the drones forced to land by our radio-electronic warfare means and the debris of the drones shot down have been collected and are being examined by the Russian Defense Ministry. In the near future we will show them and present our preliminary findings,” the source explained.
