“At approximately 23:00 on the evening of February 1, the airspace monitoring devices of the Russian Hmeimim base monitored a group of air targets that were launched from the militants controlled areas in Idlib … These drones were intercepted by electronic warfare methods, which disrupted all of them.”

The statement indicated that the drone attack did not result in any damages or injuries.

The Hmeimim Airbase is located near the coastal city of Jableh in the southwestern countryside of the Latakia Governorate.

This latest attack by the jihadist rebels comes just days after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched their large-scale offensives in the Idlib and Aleppo governorates.

Hahaha drone fail! Why bother? Stupid people doing stupid things. Jihadists should just go home. This can only end badly for you all. Is it worth making your wife a widow and your children without a father? All this for foreign interests? Idiots.

The correct way to say this is: TURKISH TERRORISTS WITH SUPPORT OF TURKEY ATTACKED RUSSIA’S MAIN BASE IN SYRIA. Turkey’s terrorists will try over and over again until they can destroy Russia’s airplanes. Isn’t it better ro get rid of terrorists at Idlib ? TurkeyStream has been having Russia hands tied, isn’t it Putin ?
