DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:45 P.M.) – An armed drone launched by jihadi groups in east Idlib was shot down by the Syrian Army in northern Latakia countryside.
The attack, the second this week, was carried out nearly one week after Russia and Turkey concluded an agreement about the jihadi-held Idlib province.
Using zu-23mm heavy machine gun, the Syrian forces managed to shoot down the drone and foil the attack.
A similar attack was launched on Friday, wounding 8 Syrian servicemen, according to the Russian Center for Reconciliation.
According to sources, the armed drones used in northern Latakia assault are the same which had repeatedly hit the Russian air base at Hmeimim.
