Russia says two military personnel killed in Hmeymim airbase shelling on December 31


Two military servicemen were killed in the December 31 mortar shelling of the Hmeymim airbase in Syria by militants, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Thursday, TASS reported. 

 

"On December 31, 2017, at nightfall, the Hmeymim airfield came under a sudden mortar fire from a mobile militant subversive group. Two military servicemen were killed in the shelling," the ministry said.

 

Ministry also reported that reports on seven aircraft destroyed at the Hmeymim airbase in Syria on December 31 are not true.

 

"A report in the Kommersant newspaper on the alleged destruction of seven Russian warplanes at the Hmeymim airbase is fake. Russia’s air group in Syria is combat ready and continues to accomplish all its missions in full," the ministry said
