Four Russian Servicemen Killed, Two Wounded in Car Blast in Syria

Four Russian servicemen were killed and two wounded when a car bomb was detonated on February 16, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday.

“Russian military medics are fighting to save their lives,” the ministry said in a statement.

The vehicle was part of a motorcade transporting Syrian troops with the Russian military advisers from the Tiyas airbase to the city of Homs, when the mine detonated 2.5 miles away from the point of departure.

On December 5, militants of the so-called Syrian opposition attacked a Russian mobile military hospital in Aleppo, killing two Russian military medics and wounding one. Local residents also sustained wounds.
Since 2011, Syria has been engulfed in a civil war, with government forces fighting against numerous opposition and terrorist groups, including al-Nusra Front and Daesh, banned in a range of countries, including Russia.

 

Moscow has been conducting a counter-terrorist campaign in Syria since September 30, 2015, at President Bashar Assad’s request.
