BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Russian military came under attack in northwestern Syria this week while attempting to conduct a patrol along the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway).
In a video recorded by locals in the Idlib Governorate, a Russian military convoy can be seen driving along the M-4 Highway when their vehicles are hit with rocks thrown from an overpass.
The video showed several Russian military vehicles being hit by rocks, but no one was reportedly hurt as a result of these attacks.

This latest incident marks the second time in the last month that the Russian military has come under attack while conducting a patrol along the M-4 Highway.
Last week, a Turkish military convoy was also attacked along the M-4 Highway; this resulted in the death of one soldier near the border town of Al-Ghassaniyeh.
