Russian air defense downs another hostile drone approaching Khmeimim air base in Syria

Russian air defenses in Syria have shot down yet another unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone, that was approaching the Khmeimim air base from terrorist-controlled territory, the military has said.

Shooting down hostile drones has become somewhat of a routine for the Russian forces stationed in Syria’s Latakia province. Over the past month the Russian air defenses have neutralized at least 25 drones approaching Khmeimim armed with various types of explosives.

On Thursday, yet another UAV was spotted on approach, and the target was successfully shot down by the air defense systems at a safe distance from the base, the head of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of opposing sides in Syria confirmed.
