BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:12 A.M.) – Syrian militants have targeted the Russian Hmeimim airbase in Latakia province with at least one bomb-armed drone.

Air defense systems at the Hmeimim airbase reportedly neutralized the incoming threat before it could reach the military installation and drop any munitions.

Reports of the attack originate from pro-government sources claiming to cite locals. If true it is unclear to which militant group the drone belonged.

Earlier in the year, rebel forces in northwest Syria conducted a swarm attack against the Hmeimim airbase with at least ten drones armed with small bomblets. Russian authorities blamed Turkish-backed militant groups.

“Russian authorities blamed Turkish-backed militant groups.”

And also that those medieval Turkass retards obviously didn’t manufactured these advanced drones themselves, but with a little help from the CIA agents swarming their camp at the time.

Drones guided by the US spy plane that were just off the coast of latakia during the nightly operation.
