Russian military repels two drone attacks on Khmeimim base in Syria

Two drones were launched by militants at Russia’s Khmeimim base in Syria in the last 24 hours, Russia’s Defense Ministry said. “The targets were destroyed by anti-aircraft fire at a safe distance from the base,” the military said. There were no injuries or material damage as a result of the incidents, with the Khmeimim airfield operating in a routine manner. It was the tenth drone attack against the Russian base in Syria since the start of the year, the Defense Ministry added.
