Drone attack at Hmeymim air base repelled
Militants made an attempt to attack the Russian air base Hmeymim in Syria with the help of unmanned aerial vehicles, chief of the Russian Center for reconciliation of the conflicting sides in Syria Alexey Bakin said.
He noted that the attack was carried out yesterday, late at night.
"Russian air defense systems detected and destroyed two UAVs which were approaching the Russian air base from the south-west. The Russian air base Hmeymim is operating in the routine mode," TASS cited the chief of the Russian Center for reconciliation as saying.
Bakin added that the possibility of provocations staged by militants with the use of toxic substances on the Syrian territory still persists.
