Five drones launched from militant-controlled territories have been downed by the Russian military near the Hmeymim airbase in Syria, chief of the Russia Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties Alexei Tsygankov said on Monday.

“During the past day, radars of the Russian airbase at Hmeymim spotted five unmanned aerial vehicles launched from the Idlib de-escalation zone controlled by illegal armed groups. The airbase’s missile defense systems downed these air targets at a safe distance from the base. No one was hurt, no material damage was done. The Russian airbase is operating routinely,” he said.

He also said that as many as 650 food baskets with an overall weight of more than 2.8 tonnes were distributed among civilians in the settlement of Salhiyah in the Deir ez-Zor governorate.

The Russian reconciliation center has conducted nearly 1,900 humanitarian operations since the beginning of the settlement process. Some 2,900 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes have been delivered.

Ten Syrians, including five children, received medical assistance from Russian military doctors during the day.

Those launching those drones seem sharing DNA with Wil E. Coyote…
Definition of insanity is doing the same fücking failing thing over and over and over again in the hope of this time, no no no, THIS time, it will work…
