'The command of our troops in Syria carried out a special operation to find and eliminate the group of militants that carried out the mortar attack on the Hmeimim base (Western Syria),' the Russian defence ministry said in a statement.

Russian Federation hinted on Thursday that Ukraine manufactured the explosives used in an attempted drone attack on its military bases in Syria, following claims linking Turkey and the USA to the attack.

Recently, the Russian Defense Ministry published new photos of the terrorist drones, showing three handcrafted UAVs made from boards and plywood, with wires, wrapped in tape and green polyethylene.

The ministry also said it had destroyed a stockpile of drones in Syria's Idlib province after militants used drones to attack its bases in the country last week.
