Militants attack Hama Airport in retaliation for Russian, Syrian strikes
2019-05-24
[ALMASDARNEWS] The jihadist rebels in the Idlib countryside attacked the Hama Military Airport this evening following a powerful assault by the Russian and Syrian air forces.

According to a report from the area, the jihadist rebels attempted to bomb the Hama Airport using their attack drones. The report said the Syrian military managed to foil the assault before the drones could bomb the base.

This latest drone attack marks the second time in the last 24 hours that the jihadists have attempted to bomb the Hama Military Airport.

Footage filmed overnight from Wednesday to Thursday appears to show Syrian Army air defence systems intercepting what Syrian state media reported was a drone near Hama airport.

Flashes of anti-aircraft fire can be seen lighting up the night sky, as kabooms boom in the distance.
