New information has come to light regarding the incident near the Tel Baydar base in northern Syria where according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) and Kurdish media there was allegedly a downing of a Turkish UAV by the US in Syria and as promised we will return later our research on the matter.
Contrary to initial claims, it has now been established by our NEMESIS HD investigation that the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) shot down by US forces was not Turkish but Iranian.
The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an Iranian-backed group, reportedly issued a statement about the drone strike around the same time as initial reports of a downing of a Turkish drone by US forces
The attack was carried out using a kamikaze drone, which has also been identified as a form of stray munition manufactured by Iran, and US forces reportedly intercepted and neutralized the drone before it could cause any damage.
This disclosure corrects previous reports from various sources that had incorrectly identified the UAV as Turkish. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which had initially reported the shooting down of a Turkish drone, has not yet commented on this new development but has even modified its article, now only talking about a drone used by the Islamic Resistance of Iraq.
