MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. A drone that was found on Friday near Turkey’s border with Syria might have falled due to technical malfunction, Denis Fedutinov, the editor-in-chief of the Russian journal Unmanned Aviation, said.
Turkey’s General Staff said earlier on Friday that the Turkish air forces had gunned down an unidentified drone that had trespassed the country’s air space. According to media reports, the dron fell down three kilometers off the border with Syria. Photos of the downed aircraft were posted on the internet.
"Judging by the photos, the drone was not shot down. It simply fell down due to a technical malfunction," Fedutinov said.
The Russian defense ministry spokesman, Igor Konashenkov, said all Russian warplanes employed in Syria had returned to the airbase while drones were operating a routine regime. Deputy chief of Russia’s General Staff Andrey Kartapolov also said all Russian drone were either on combat missions or staying at the airbase. "You can only guess or find out whom the unmanned aerial vehicle belonged to," Kartapolov told a briefing.
