Ankara's statement came amid reports from the Russian Defense Ministry of an attempted terrorist attack on Russian military facilities in Syria, announced on January 8.

The Russian Ministry of Defense claims to have killed the terrorists that attacked their bases in Syria.

"Six small-size air targets were intercepted and taken under control by the Russian EW units". Three of the drones survived the landing and the Russian defense ministry has posted images of them.

Russia's defence ministry on Thursday said that the drones used to attack two Russian military bases in Syria were so high-tech they were created to offset jamming technology. "But one thing is for certain - the drones used in these attacks don't resemble any drones used by other countries, except for the United States".

Idlib has been a source of tension between regime-backer Russian Federation and rebel-supporter Turkey, with Ankara accusing the Syrian regime of stepping up its offensive on key rebel-held areas there.

Russian military sites in Syria were targeted in two major attacks in the past two weeks, one on New Year's Eve and another on January 6.

Turkey has been fiercely opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during his country's six-year-old civil war but has recently been working with his allies Russian Federation and Iran for a political resolution to the conflict.

Russian Federation has repeatedly insinuated that the rebels who carried out the drone attack on its military bases in Syria had help from the US, Turkey, and even Ukraine.
