BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the jihadist rebels in western Idlib attempted to bomb the Russian airbase in southwestern Latakia.

According to a field source in the Latakia Governorate, the jihadist rebels attempted to bomb the Russian Hmeimim Airbase using missiles fired from their attack drones.

However, the Russian air defenses were able to repel the attack before any of the missiles could hit the Hmeimim Airbase this morning.

Wednesday’s attempted attack by the jihadist rebels marks the first time that they have tried to bomb the Hmeimim Airbase in several weeks.

The jihadist rebels previously tried to attack the Hmeimim Airbase on several occasions in May; however, their attacks were all repelled by the Russian military.

With the help o Turkey (NATO member), terrorists will try over and over again until they be successful in this goal. The probability they be successful is getting higher and higher close to one. Thanks to stupid ceasefires and Russia-Turkey agreements.

Now they fit missiles on drones? Erdogan is going too far!
Here’s what the Muslim Brotherhood is dreaming to do to the world to extend its islamofascism. And for those supporting Hamas, Hamas is officially part of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Con moderna tecnología, por qué los Rusos permiten tal acto?, por qué ubicar el lugar de donde salen los drones?,
