The Russian military on Friday, August 7, announced the attempts of Syrian militias to attack the military base “Khmeimim”. The Ministry of Defense also notes that the Turkish military has not yet managed to stabilize the situation in the “security corridor” along the M4 highway.
“The Turkish command is taking certain measures to destroy the bandit formations along the M4 highway. But, at the same time, the Turkish side fails to ensure the creation of a “security corridor”. In this regard, the next joint Russian-Turkish patrol is constantly postponed, “- told reporters the head of the Russian center for the reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, Rear Admiral Alexander Shcherbitsky.
The senior military man also noted that the gangs are trying to attack the positions of the Syrian and Russian military in other parts of the country. “Militants are shelling the positions of the government forces of the Syrian Arab Republic, making attempts to attack the Russian airbase“ Khmeimim ”using unmanned aerial vehicles and extended-range multiple launch rocket systems,” Shcherbitsky quoted Interfax as saying.
