Anti-aircraft defenses intercept drones attacking Syria's Hmeimim airbase: media

CAIRO (Reuters) - Explosions heard on Tuesday in the Syrian coastal city of Latakia were a result of anti-aircraft defenses intercepting drones launched toward Hmeimim air base, Syrian state TV and the state news agency (SANA) reported.

State media said militants had launched the drones toward the air base from a de-escalation zone.
