British Minister of Defense, Ben Wallace, said that Turkey’s use of domestic drones had changed the “rules of the game” in Libya and Syria.
Wallace added in a speech during a conference of the Air Force and Space, that Britain should take lessons and learn from other countries, referring to Turkey.
“Look at how Turkey has used its domestic aircraft, Bayraktar TP-2, in Libya, since mid-2019,” he said.
He pointed out that these marches collected intelligence information, performed surveillance tasks, and targeted front lines, logistics, and logistical bases.
He pointed out that last July, Turkish marches bombed the Al-Jafra airbase in Libya, which led to the destruction of two planes and a large number of command points belonging to the Haftar militia.
He continued, “”Or look at what Turkey did in Syria, where the Assad forces suffered heavy losses, thanks to their drones, and smart systems on their tanks and armored vehicles.”
He explained that “the news indicates that the Syrian regime forces lost 3 thousand soldiers, 151 tanks, 8 helicopters, 3 surveillance aircraft, 3 combat aircraft, 8 air defense systems, and a military base, and if only half of these numbers are correct, they lead to changing the rules the game”.
