Turkey - SMART

On Monday, the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed that it prevented two attacks on its military bases in the Hmeimim military airport in Latakia and the Syrian port of Tartus, Western Syria.

The Ministry said in a statement that it "foiled a terrorist attempt to attack the base of Hmeimim and the support base of the Russian navy in Tartus, using pilotless aircrafts, two days ago, without causing any material damage or death."

The Ministry also said that the attack indicated that those "terrorists" have the techniques to launch attacks in any country.

On Jan. 6, the pages supporting the Syrian loyalist forces on social media reported that they heard intense fire from the Hmeimim base. Meanwhile, Al Qaeda said on its Facebook page that it deals with "hostile bodies."

Russian newspapers revealed an attack on the Hmeimim base on New Year's Eve, which destroyed seven aircrafts. However, the Russian Defense Ministry denied the destruction of seven aircrafts and announced the killing of only two Russian soldiers.
