Israeli satellite spies Russian stealth fighters at Syrian base

Israeli satellite spies Russian stealth fighters at Syrian base”

Some Russian servicemen are believed to be operating these systems in Syria. "Today we can say with full confidence that Russia's security is guaranteed", Putin said at a gala evening held on Thursday in the Kremlin Palace in honour of the Defender of the Fatherland Day, a major Russian national holiday on February 23, Xinhua reported.

No Russian official directly acknowledged that Russian citizens were involved until February 15, 2018, when Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that about five people who were "presumably Russian citizens" may have been killed. She repeated earlier statements of how USA military personnel were on the "deconfliction phone" with their Russian counterparts as the attack got underway as well as during the counter-attack. No American servicepeople were killed in the fighting that ensued.

Videos on social media appear to show Russia's Su-57, a prototype of a new, fifth-generation fighter jet, operating in Syria - and it could be a direct threat to U.S. stealth aircraft like the F-22.

Congressional districts, candidates in flux
The court redrew Pennsylvania's district map to make it a more even playing field for the two major political parties. That election isn't affected by the new boundaries, which go into effect in the May primaries.

Beirut-based journalist Wael Al Hussaini shared a video on Twitter, purporting to show the brand new Russian aircraft in the skies over Syria. The conflict has already been used to demonstrate the prowess of Russian cruise missiles and combat helicopters. White said she could not confirm their presence. He said it would be a great opportunity for them to test out the configuration in Syria, where a large number of F-22 stealth jets operate.

"The addition of fifth generation fighters into Syria would certainly not be in keeping with Russia's announced force drawdown", Eric Pahon, a Defense Department spokesperson, said. It is not clear if the Jets would be used for actual combat operations.

Israeli Intelligence Thwarted Daesh Attempt to Down Passenger Plane - Netanyahu
Dutton says 14 imminent terror attacks have been stopped in Australia and 85 people have been charged with terror-related offences in recent years.

The deputy minister of Russian defence had stated last month that the country was buying the combat fighter plane to add to its combat fleet and that the initial testing phase was completed, to be followed by more test flights and phases. "In a state that has huge budget problems and a massive military bill", the Su-57 functions as a prestige item, said Bronk. US officials believe the soldiers-for-hire were attacking a gas installation right next to the base controlled by USA special operations forces and their Kurdish allies.

The Pentagon says US military commanders were told by their Russian counterparts that there were no Russians in a paramilitary force whose attack on a base in eastern Syria early February 2018 led to a massive counterstrike by USA forces. Above, Russian troops in Syria a year ago.
