Militants fired a total of 36 rockets at Russia’s Hmeimim airbase in Syria on May 6, the Russian military reported.
According to the report, the rockets were fired in two attacks. The militants used a drone to direct the fire. Both attacks were repelled by the airbase’s defenses. No damage or casualties were caused.
The shelling came from the Idlib de-escalation zone, which included the militant-held parts of Lattakia, Idlib, Hama and Aleppo provinces.
The Russian Aerospace Forces carried out strikes on militant positions in response to the attack.
