Turkey 'summons top United States diplomat' over Syria Kurd forces

Another three attacked the nearby Russian naval base at Tartus.

The Russian military said that the attack originated from the village of Muazzara, which is located in the Idlib region of Syria.

The Hmeimim and Tartus bases continue to operate normally, the ministry said.

The ministry said last week that two Russian service personnel were killed in a mortar attack on the Hmeimim base on December 31.

LG announced recently that it was going to unlock the FM chips on its handsets a few months back in partnership with NextRadio . Aside from Samsung, LG, Motorola , and Alcatel have also chose to activate the FM chips in their smartphones.

The defence ministry also shared images of a captured weapon.

Almost three million people are believed to be in the Idlib region, their numbers swelled by fighters and civilians who fled Syrian army advances elsewhere in the country. But the Russians have hinted that the technology used was too advanced for local militants, seen as a suggestion it could have been supplied by USA forces in the vicinity - something the Pentagon says is "absolutely false". Its defence ministry sent letters to the chief of the Turkish armed forces and the head of its National Intelligence Organisation pointing out "the need for Ankara to fulfil its obligations to ensure compliance with the regime for the cessation of hostilities" in Syria.

The ministry said seven of the unmanned aerial vehicles were shot down and the six others were forced to land without inflicting any casualties or damage.

Last Saturday, Russia's main airbase in Kheimim in the Syrian Latakia province came under a massive drone attack.

Merkel bloc, SDP clinch deal for coalition government
Had the talks failed , Merkel's only options would have been to form a minority government or hold new elections . He told Der Spiegel Online there was a good chance party members would reject any plans for a "grand coalition".

After two years of Russian military support for the Assad government, Putin announced in mid-December the partial withdrawal of forces from the country, saying their task had been largely completed.

"The gains the regime has made are not secure and are at high risk of being temporary", she added.

More than 40 Russian military personnel died in Syria since Moscow launched a campaign of air strikes in September 2015, in many cases using Hmeimim as a base.

The development comes one day after the Russian Ministry of Defense implied that the United States had helped coordinate the drone attacks on Hmeimim air base and Tartus naval facility. It was also further noted that detonators used in the explosive attached to the drones were of foreign manufacture. In recent months, however, the Russian military brass has become increasingly critical of the US role in Syria, accusing it of protecting militants who can carry out future battles against Assad - a claim the USA has angrily denied.
