BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has launched a massive attack on northeastern Latakia after they alleged the militants fired several missiles towards the Hmeimim Airbase.

According to reports from the Latakia Governorate, the Russian Air Force conducted several airstrikes over the jihadist-held towns of Kabani and Sirmaniyeh, along with a number of sites in the Jabal Al-Akrad region.

Prior to these airstrikes, the Russian Ministry of Defense accused the jihadists of launching several missiles towards the Hmeimim Airbase, causing a number of explosions in the process.

Despite these claims, the militants have denied firing any missiles towards the Hmeimim Airbase.

Typically, the militants use attack drones to bomb the Hmeimim Airbase; however, very few details were released by the Russian Ministry of Defense regarding this attack.
