A drone reportedly captured by the Russian military after an attack on two military bases in Syria.

The drones appear to have assembled from a small engine, cheap plywood and a number of small rockets.

Bombs said to be attached to drones used to strike two Russian military bases in Syria.

Bombs said to be attached to drones used to strike two Russian military bases in Syria.

The defense ministry said that the Russian bases didn’t suffer any casualties or damage.

According to a report published Wednesday by a media outlet allied to the Russian military, the village of Muwazarra in the southern Idlib province has been identified as the launch site.

Muwazarra is designated a “de-escalation zone” under a deal between Russia, Turkey and Iran. It has been an area of conflict between forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and rebel forces backed by Turkey.

Russia has blamed those rebels for the attack, calling it a breach of the ceasefire agreement in northern Syria. It was also reported that a complaint has already been sent to Turkish officials in Ankara.
