The Russian military hinted in a comment on a video of their jet in a close encounter with an unidentified drone. Over 30 planes or drones can sometimes be in one area at the same time, the Russian MoD said.

The presence of various aircraft – including military cargo planes, warplanes, UAVs, and strike drones – has recently been on the rise in Syrian airspace, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in statement on Tuesday.

The Ministry of Defense posted a video of an unidentified drone said to be flying over Syria. The UAV was apparently caught on camera from the cockpit of a Russian jet.
