A pair of American drones crashed following a midair collision in Syria, destroying both craft, the Military Times reported. The cause and exact circumstances of the smash-up remain unclear, however, leaving rumors to swirl.

The alleged collision took place over Idlib province on Tuesday, an anonymous defense official told the Times, though offered few other details about the mishap, declining to confirm what caused the crash or what type of drones were involved.

Whether the aircraft were fired upon at any point during the incident is also not known, the official said.

Photos and videos circulating online – which show debris falling from the sky and flaming wreckage on the ground – indicate that at least one of the craft was an American MQ-9 Reaper drone, used for both surveillance and armed missions.

With no official explanation for the incident, however, speculation was rife on social media, with some suggesting the drones were shot down by Turkish-backed militants, while others posited that a Russian drone had been downed, despite the Times report pinning both craft as American.

The reported collision comes days after a US assassination strike on a jihadist trainer based in Idlib, Abu Yahyah al-Uzbeki, who was alleged to work alongside the Al-Qaeda-linked Hurras ad-Din group. The strike is believed to have used an R9X Hellfire missile, a special non-explosive munition that unleashes six sword-like blades before impact – dubbed the “ninja bomb.”

Though Damascus has repeatedly slammed the American presence in Syria as illegal and a violation of the country’s sovereignty, Washington continues military operations in several regions, carrying out intermittent strikes around Idlib and embedding soldiers with Arab and Kurdish proxy groups in the south and northeast.

Backed by the Pentagon throughout Syria’s war, the Kurdish-led factions now control valuable oil resources, with US plans to train a 2,200-man “oilfield guard” in the Hasakah region, according to a recent Inspector General report.

  1. Could it be the Drones were knocked out with Russia’s Peresvet high-energy laser weapon? Those things are mobile and can be hidden nearly anywhere.
    It’s probably one of the reasons why they are taking so long to rid Syria of the invaders because they can test their latest weapons in real time war conditions.

    • Maybe… Of course, the Zionists and other banker gangsters also drag out conflicts for weapon testing, and the world increasingly opposing them for this is probably not something Russia can afford.

  2. US taxpayers aren’t the source of revenue that pay for all the neat military toys anymore.
    US manufacturing was taken offshore beginning in 1975, there’s so little left
