BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – Several loud explosions were heard around the coastal city of Jableh this evening as the militants in northeastern Latakia attempted to attack the Hmeimim Airbase.

According to a military source near the Hmeimim Airbase, the militants used attack drones to bomb the military installation.

The source said the Russian air defenses were immediately activated when the militant drones reached the northeastern perimeter of the Hmeimim Airbase.

No bombs were reported to have hit the Hmeimim Airbase; however, some of the militant projectiles hit the nearby areas.

Tonight’s attack by the militant forces marks the first time this month that they have targeted the Hmeimim Airbase in southwestern Latakia.

Very good news. Thanks giving to Russians by Turki Sponsored Jihadis for supplying the S 400 to Turki. Now the shitlamists have targeted the Hmeimim Airbase itself to attack. Now let us wait & see how the Russians will respond and pay back in kind to this back to the Jihadis & Turki should feel the pain. Turki is least bothered as long as this brain dead OLA UBER guys keep dying for less than 150 $ per month. Worthless & pathetic life just gonna rot in the Syrian deserts with some imagination to get the virgins where as their… Read more »

This seems to be something like a “warning”.This attack was probably done with commands and orders of others. If they want to hit the Russian base, they can do it … they will find a way to do it.Russia has made agreements with Turkey for a security zone?? … and now sees the bad results.Security zone for whom ??? What is the reason for security zone ???After the agreement on a security zone it is like … russia gives protection to those who are attacking its base??? !!!I remember years ago some attacked US base on Iraq and the other… Read more »

No, russia can not do that. Now foreign professional terrorists run like a hare??? with eight legs.They will go quickly to the security zone and be safe. Russia can not do anything there. The security zone is home and field of the big boss -Turkey-.The great father Dany (Erdogan) orders and russia does not say anything???.Unfortunately, russia creates a bad picture and a bad profile. Who imagined it and who was expecting it? The Russia under the feet and the boots of turkey !!!The great christian orthodox leader Vladimir deals and agreements and business with great islamist leader Dany(Erdogan)Very bad… Read more »

I think we are being unfair here. Putin has helped Russian armament industry economically in selling the S 400 and got close to 4.6 BN much needed dollars to Russia. The deal was already signed with Russia and it has fulfilled its commitment in delivering it. Russia will now concentrate in eliminating the Jihadis as it continues to do. Putin has not let down Syria. RuAF are still going great Guns! Now the whole action is only at 2 major areas Idlib & Hama.

How Russian will disappear. Russia sits and sees Turkish trucks coming into Syria and not bombing them.You allow them to enter Syria and then hunt them in the mountains, caves and rivers.When the Syrian army wins, the next day, Russia says “stop … we have a ceasefire and agreements with turkey??”.Russia will do the same again. It will hit farmhouses and kill 5 cats?, 20 dogs?, 50 chickens?, 80 ducks? and three jihadists??.The other day, turkey will put trucks in Syria with 500 foreign jihadists and many heavy weapons.We want to be with the truth. Look at what’s happening right… Read more »

@The Greek : Maybe should you observe the situation around Cyprus which is strangely not followed by AMN and do you forget some other factors which are needed to get a big picture. This is a serious issue with news : people react emotionally and don’t look further. They end being manipulated… Look : +++ “Do not believe so easily what the channels and the media say … they say “Turkey and the USA have bad relationships(because of S400 etc etc).” These are bullshit.” => Yes : It’s NOT about S-400 and not only about USA. 1.) Both EU and… Read more »
