On March 10, a Russian drone crashed in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib where a number of terrorist groups are present.
According to Syrian opposition sources, the drone crashed near the town of Tal Adeh in northern Idlib, a few kilometers away from Turkey’s border. The drone crashed as a result of an engine failure.
Thanks to a video showing the crash site near Tal Adeh, the drone was identified by experts as a Forpost. The drone is a licensed copy of the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Searcher. Dozens of Fropost drones, which were manufactured in Russia, are currently in service with the Russian military. The drone has an endurance of 18 hours.

This was the third confirmed loss of a Russian drone in Syria this year. On February 6, an Oraln-10 drone crashed in the northern Raqqa countryside. On February 7, a second Orlan-10 crashed in the al-Zawiya Mount in the southern part of Greater Idlib.
Russia deployed dozens of drones in Syria during the last few years. These drones carry out reconnaissance and combat operations.
It should be noted that last month the Russian military shared never-seen-before footage of drone strikes on terrorists in Syria.
