BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 A.M.) – Earlier tonight, a source in Latakia informed Al-Masdar News that the Russian military activated their air defense alarms at the Hmaymim Airport near the port-city of Jableh.

According to the source, the Russian military allegedly shot down a number of armed drones that belonged to the militant forces.

The source stated that the militant attack was repelled by the Russian military; however, he could not confirm whether or not any of the drones hit their intended target at the airport.

This is believed to be the first attack by the militant forces on the Hmaymim Airport since early Spring 2018.

The first armed drone attack that was carried out by the militants on the Hmaymim Airport took place at the end of 2017.
