Russia's Antonov-26 transport plane crashed in Syria on Tuesday as it was about to land killing 32 people, the Defense Ministry has said.

The An-26 plane crashed while attempting to land at Khmeimim Air Base, located near the Syrian coastal city of Latakia.

The ministry said a technical malfunction could have caused the crash, adding that according to a report from the site, no fire had been opened on the aircraft. In one incident, in February this year, Syrian rebels shot down a Russian warplane and killed its pilot on the ground after he ejected.

An investigation into the incident is underway.

In December 2016, a plane carrying a Russian military orchestra to Syria crashed in the Black Sea, killing all 92 people on board. Six crew and 26 passengers died, they reported.

Russian Federation has been maintaining military presense in Syria since 2015, launching an anti-terroist operation at the request of President Bashar Assad.
