The Russian military near the Hmeymim airbase in Syria has shot down two drones launched by militants.

"During the past day, radars of the Russian airbase at Hmeymim spotted two unmanned aerial vehicles launched from the Idlib de-escalation zone controlled by illegal armed groups. The airbase’s missile defense systems downed these air targets at a safe distance from the base. No one was hurt, no material damage was done. The Russian airbase is operating routinely," chief of the Russia Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties Alexei Tsygankov was quoted as saying by Tass Sunday.

The Russian reconciliation center has called on commanders of illegal armed groups to stop armed provocations and embark on a path of peaceful settlement of the situation in the areas under their control.
