Swarm of Drones Attacked Russian Military Bases in Syria

Russia says its military repelled an attack by 13 “militant” drones on its Khmeimim Air Base and Tartus naval facility in Syria on Saturday. In a statement, the Russian Ministry of Defense said its forces had detected ten drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), approaching its air base in Lakatia province and another three targeting the naval logistics facility in the coastal city of Tartus. It went on to say the drones were either shot down by Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile launchers or disabled by electronic defense systems before reaching their target. Images released by the defense ministry show detailed images of one of the captured UAVs as well as the capability to carry multiple ADIMs (Aerial Delivered Improvised Munitions)
