Drone attack on Russia bases in Syria 'came from Idlib'

Drone attack on Russia bases in Syria 'came from Idlib'Drones that attacked Russian bases in Syria last week were sent from Idlib, a “de-escalation” zone controlled by anti-Damascus fighters, the Russian defence ministry’s official newspaper said Wednesday. Idlib province has been a source of tension between regime-backer Russia and rebel-supporter Turkey, with Ankara accusing the Syrian regime of stepping up its offensive on key rebel-held areas there. “The drones were launched from the area of Muazzara in the southwestern part of the Idlib de-escalation area controlled by so-called ‘moderate opposition’ units,” defence ministry newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda said.
