7 Russian Planes in Syria Damaged by Rebel Attack

The Russian news agency Kommersant is reporting that at least seven Russian planes were damaged or destroyed by rebel shelling in Syria, in one of the worst attacks since Russia began its military operation there.

The Hmeymim air base in western Syria, near the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, was targeted for an attack that damaged — according to Kommersant — at least four Su-24 bombers, two Su-35S fighter jets, and an An-72 transport plane, as well as an ammunition depot, according to two “military-diplomatic” sources.
