BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:25 P.M.) – The Russian Air Defense intercepted an unknown object that was flying towards the Hmaymim Military Airport tonight, a local source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, at least four armed drones were shot down over the base earlier in the day; however, they are still unsure what the Russian Air Defense shot down.

Another report from a local activist claimed that the Russian Air Defense destroyed a suicide drone, but it remains unconfirmed.

Below is a video from the Jableh countryside that shows the Russian Air Defense targeting the unknown object.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
