Russian Federation denies reports of 7 planes destroyed in Syria attack

Home-Made Drones Bombed a Russian Airbase, Defense Ministry Says Drone swarm sign of future wars

RUSSIAN air strikes have killed at least 18 civilians in the Syrian opposition stronghold in Eastern Ghouta, near Damascus.

We review the key developments in Syria, including the Syrian government preparing for a counteroffensive in Eastern Ghouta, airstrikes in Idlib killing seven people, and shells from Syria landing in southern Turkey.

According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, 10,204 civilians were killed in 2017, including 2,298 children and 1,536 women.

If confirmed, it would be the single biggest loss of military hardware for the Kremlin strongman since he began supporting Syria's president Bashar al-Assad.

Russian President Vladimir Putin recently made a surprise visit to the Russian facilities in Syria to thank the servicemen at the air base for their work in keeping the Assad regime in power.

The United Nations has made repeated calls for warring parties to abide by their responsibility to protect children in line with worldwide humanitarian and human rights law.

Home-Made Drones Bombed a Russian Airbase, Defense Ministry Says

Russian Federation first launched bombing raids in 2015 in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces. "As a result of the shelling, two servicemen were killed", the defence ministry said in a statement to Russian agencies.

The Ministry of Defense pointed out that on December 31, at sunset, the military installation in Latakia province was attacked by a mobile group of fundamentalists, but the operational capacity of its air units was not affected at all.

The attack took place on December 31, 2017 at the Hmeymim air base, and if the reports are confirmed, it is being called Russia's single biggest loss of military hardware since the fall of 2015, when Russian Federation launched an airstrike in Syria. "Two military servicemen were killed in the shelling".

The Kommersant business daily reported seven military planes had been "practically destroyed" in the attack, citing two military-diplomatic sources, but the ministry said the report was "fake".

Russian Federation announced it will pull the bulk of its troops from Syria starting March 15, in a process that could take up to 5 months.
