A Russian armored personnel carrier has been damaged in an explosion on the M4 highway in Syria’s southern Idlib, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on June 16. He noted that nobody was injured.
“Today, during the joint patrolling on the route between the settlements of Ariha and Urum al-Jawz, militants attempted to carry out a terrorist attack with the goal to undermine the monitoring along the M4 motorway. As a result of the explosion on the route of the convoy, one Russian armored personnel carrier has received minor damage,” he said.
