Media: Hmeimim airbase again tried to attack from the air
It is stated that drones failed to hit any targets at the Russian air base.
An alarm siren sounded, and the calculations of the air defense systems on Khmeimim began to neutralize the threat. According to some information, several unmanned aerial vehicles were destroyed by the Pantsir anti-aircraft missile system.
According to the Lebanese media, the UAVs were sent to Hmeimim from the Jizr al-Shugur region, located in the southwestern part of Idlib. This territory belongs to the so-called de-escalation zone, which by agreement must be controlled by the Turkish military contingent. Apparently, all is not well with the control of the Turkish contingent in Idlib.
Arabic-language sources claim that the Jizr el-Shugur area was bombed from the air.
The militants of the so-called Islamic Party of Turkestan and Hayat Tahrir ash-Sham (* banned in Russia) are concentrated on the territory of this region of the Idlib province. The leaders of these groups do not hide the fact that every time they try to carefully prepare an attack on the Russian military facility in Latakia.
The anti-aircraft umbrella deployed above the Khmeimim airbase has been neutralized by all of the last few threats from the air.
The Russian Defense Ministry has not yet commented on this information.
