Russian Special Forces Eliminate Militants Behind Syrian Airbase Attacks

A massive Russian intelligence and special forces operation was launched to track down militants behind recent attacks.

Russian Special Forces Eliminate Militants Behind Syrian Airbase Attacks:

The Russian military announced late on Friday that it has tracked down and eliminated a group of rebels involved in attacks on Russia’s main base in Syria after mobilizing “all manpower and materiel of Russia’s multilevel military intelligence system in Syria” and especially its elite special forces troops.

The previous New Year’s Eve attack was carried out by a small squad of insurgents armed with mortars who were able to kill two Russian servicemen while damaging up to seven aircraft at Khmeimim Airbase outside of Latakia, Syria and constitutes the single largest loss of Russian military hardware throughout the Syria campaign.
