Drone attack | Airstrikes hit car near Syria border with Iskenderun

Reliable sources have reported that an armed drone, believed to belong to the International Coalition, struck an unidentified car on the road between Isqat and Salqin areas in the north-western countryside of Idlib, near the border with Iskenderun region. No casualties have been reported so far.


On November 7, Observatory activists documented the death of seven Uzbek jihadists in drone attack on their military post in Sarjeh area in Jabal Al-Zawiyah. It is worth noting that the targeted group was affiliated to Hayyaat Tahrir Al-Sham and known as “Al-Majmou’ah Al-Istish-hadiyah” (the Martyrdom Group). Also, the drone which carried out the attack was a “kamikaze”, as it blew up just after striking the military post. However, it is not known yet if the drone was Russian or affiliated to the Iranian and regime forces.
