BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 A.M.) – The Russian military activated their air defense sirens at the Hmeimim Airbase this morning after several militant attack drones approached the installation’s northeastern perimeter.

According to a report from the coastal governorate of Tartous, the militant drones were successfully intercepted by the Russian air defenses before they could drop any bombs on the Hmeimim Airbase this morning.

The jihadist rebels in western Idlib have repeatedly attempted to bomb the Hmeimim Airbase in response to the Russian bombardment of northwestern Syria; however, they have been unable to score any direct hits.

So far this month, the jihadist rebels have attempted to bomb the Hmeimim Airbase on two separate occasions; this has only led to an increase in Russian air activity over the Idlib, Hama, Latakia, and Aleppo governorates.

The Russian military will likely respond to these jihadiT attacks in the coming hours as they launch fresh airstrikes over northwestern Syria.

I thought Syria had the S400 or S300 anti-aircraft systems. Can anyone tell me why Israel bombs Syria with impunity and nothing is done about it? What’s so great about these wonder systems? Syrian soldiers die each time Israel bombs,which is often–and nothing is done in retaliation . . .
