The drone was launched by al-Nusra Front militants, the state television added. No further details were immediately available.

On Wednesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that militants based in Idlib had also launched a missile attack on Russia’s Hmeymim air base, but that their missiles were either shot down or did not reach their target.
