BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 A.M.) – The Pentagon stated on Tuesday that US Armed Forces had no prior knowledge about the jihadist drone attacks on the Russian Hmaymim Base in southwest Latakia.

“Any suggestion that the U.S. or coalition forces played a role in an attack on a Russian base is without any basis, in fact and is utterly irresponsible,” Spokesman Marine Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway stated yesterday.

The Pentagon’s response came shortly after the Russian Ministry of Defense stated it was a “strange coincidence” that U.S. drones were flying over the Hmaymim Military Airbase during the time of the jihadist strikes.

“Hardly anyone could have obtained the exact coordinates [for the attacks] based on space-based reconnaissance,” the Russian Ministry of Defense stated.

Furthermore, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated that the drones were actually found to have derived from the Idlib Governorate, which is currently under attack by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
