On Monday, Russia averted an attack by 13 drones on its Syrian installations - 10 attacking its Khmeimim air base and three of them on the Tartus naval base - according to Russia's Defense Ministry.

The first assault reportedly carried out by an infiltration squad armed with mortars, resulted in two Russian servicemen being killed and damage to warplanes at Khmeimim Airbase.

The Russian Defense Ministry added that all manpower and materiel of Russia's multilevel military intelligence system in Syria had been involved in the operation.
