BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels in the northeastern countryside of the Latakia Governorate attempted to attack the Russian Hmeimim Airbase on Saturday, a Syrian military source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the jihadist rebels attempted to attack the Hmeimim Airbase using their long-range missiles; however, they were unsuccessful.

The Syrian military source added that the Russian air defenses were able to shoot down all of the missiles before they could reach the Hmeimim Airbase.

This latest attack by the jihadist rebels marked the third time this past week that they have attempted to strike the Hmeimim Airbase with either long-range missiles or assault drones.

The Russian Air Force has often responded to these attacks by launching airstrikes over the jihadist-held territories, but due to the recent temporary ceasefire in Idlib, they refrained from striking.

The ceasefire was ultimately short-lived, however, as both the jihadist rebels and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) traded attacks on Saturday.

THAT IS THE PROMISE OF ALLAH :
“It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.”
– Sahih Muslim Book 1 Hadith 271
=> Goodbye.
