The Russian military has been blocking American drones in Syria for several weeks.
The Russians are utilisig special equipment that blocks the operation of GPS receivers. As a result, operators receive incorrect geolocation data, causing drones to crash.
This causes a significant impact on the US operation in Syria. Despite the fact that the drones are equipped with means against “jamming” of signals, these do not work against Russian systems and the military is forced to take additional measures to protect their drone aircraft.
It became known earlier that the United States was considering the Russian airfield in Khmeimim in the Syrian Latakia as a target for a military strike.
