A Hmeymim military base in Syria, which hosts Russian troops and equipment, was mortared on Monday, Aug 5. A military source told SANA that at 15:30 local time, the targeted hit caused considerable human losses and material damage. As UNIAN reported earlier, the said base was twice shelled on May 6, 2019.

It was attacked from the area of the settlement of Zavia, located in the Idlib de-escalation zone and controlled by the Hairat Tahrir ash-Sham organization.


  1. Where was the super duper invincible S400 air defense system protecting this airbase? Turkey must be wondering WTF they bought.

    • Once again, a bunch of freedom fighters on bicycles are destroying Moskali weapons. The invaders didn’t learn their lesson yet, just like Wagner didn’t learn their lesson yet either after getting 300 bbq’d by US Marines.

      • Surprise, surprise. RT have no mention whatsoever about this humilitation of Russian air defenses.

  2. The Russian version of events released by the Kremlin today, vary wildly from the Syrian governments version of events, who’s lying?

    “The rebels launched three rockets from the buffer zone in Idlib toward Russia’s Khmeimim airbase in the nearby province of Latakia, the Defense Ministry said in a daily bulletin Monday.

    No servicemen were hurt in the attack but four civilians were injured when the rockets fell on a nearby settlement, it added.”
