US officials say Russia began jamming some smaller drones several weeks ago
It came after a spate of suspected chemical weapons attacks on civilians
Experts warned jamming could cause drones to malfunction or possibly crash
President Trump is widely expected to launch revenge attacks on Assad regime
Israeli missiles hit a Syrian air base and left 14 dead hours after Donald Trump warned 'animal' dictator Bashar al-Assad there would be a 'big price to pay' for a horrifying chemical attack that killed dozens of children
Russia has started jamming US military drones operating over Syria seriously affecting America's military operations, it has been revealed.
The jamming began days before a chlorine gas attack attributed to the Assad regime killed 40 people including dozens of children - and US officials speculate that the electronic countermeasures were deployed by President Vladimir Putin in anticipation of a revenge attack by the US.
The development, first reported by NBC news, will stoke fears that the conflict in Syria is turning into a rapidly growing proxy war with Russia, Iran and the Assad regime on one side and the US and its Western allies on the other.
President Trump is widely expected to launch revenge attacks on the Assad regime in the coming days, supported by Britain and France. It would follow Israel's initial strike on one of Assad's biggest airfields on Monday.
But the jamming could seriously interfere with America's ability to strike and experts have also speculated that Russian air defence systems could shoot down US cruise missiles.
The aircraft carrier USS Harry Truman is due to depart from the US for the Arabian Gulf on Wednesday and could play a key role in any future operations.
