BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF) downed an Islamic State (ISIL) attack drone in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, the NDF’s official media account reported on Wednesday night.

According to the NDF, their forces in the village of Abu Al-Alaya downed the Islamic State attack drone while it was flying over their positions and bombing civilians in the area.

The bomb used by the Islamic State to attack the civilians of Abu Al-Alaya was identified by the Syrian military as a NATO-sponsored GLV-HEF projectile, which is produced in Bulgaria.

ISIL has been using these projectile bombs to harass the civilians in east Homs and Deir Ezzor for several months now, forcing the Syrian military to constantly monitor these villages and towns in eastern Syria.

  1. “NATO-sponsored GLV-HEF projectile, which is produced in Bulgaria”
    => And guess what? Most of the ISIS roaches use “Kalashnikov” riffles or former Warsaw-pact/Chinese copies! They must be Soviet-sponsord! Nasty commies 😆 😀
    Note that this riffle-grenade is nothing new and was already produced for a grenade launcher that adapted on guess what riffle?

    And guess what? This is a copy of GP-25

    In other terms, this is a Kalashnikov grenade-launcher compatible ammo!
    Note that Bulgaria entered NATO in 2004, before, they were more in Russian-sphere, so… Putin-sponsored projectile???
    NB: such demonstration by absurd is just a way to point that saying “NATO-sponsored” in such a case is done for pure political agenda purposes. You may even find some GLV-HEF in Cuba or Venezuela as much in some NATO eastern countries that still have Soviet gear. Lüftwaffe Mig-29 were retired not so long ago, Poland may even have some left in service now!
