UPDATE 1-Syrian army foils drone attack on military base in northwestThe Syrian army said on Saturday its air defences foiled a drone attack by "terrorist" groups on a main military base in northwestern Syria, where a Russian-brokered ceasefire has stopped months of fighting. The three drones, which were carrying explosives, were shot down on Friday and destroyed without causing any losses, the army said in a statement reported on Syrian state media. The Idlib region saw a lull in air raids that have been pounding rebel-held territory after Russia's defence ministry announced on Aug. 30 that Syrian forces would unilaterally cease fire in an "de-escalation zone" brokered two year ago.
