Syrian military confronts missiles in country's west

The Syrian military on Tuesday, September 18 morning activated its air defenses after a number of potential missiles/drones swarmed the provinces of Latakia, Homs, and Tartous, Al-Masdar News reports.

According to one source, the attack was carried out by a number of armed drones that belonged to the jihadist rebels; however, another military source said that while it is still unclear, they believe it may be a foreign entity.

What is known at the moment is that the Syrian military has deployed several S-200 anti-aircraft missiles to defend the provinces.
