An armored personnel carrier of the Russian military police was fired at from an anti-tank missile system (ATGM) by pro-Turkish militants in the Syrian city of Idlib.

This was announced by Rear Admiral Vyacheslav Sytnik, Deputy Head of the Russian Center for the reconciliation of the Warring Parties (CUWP) in Syria.

“As a result of a rocket hitting an armored personnel carrier, three Russian servicemen were slightly injured,” he clarified and added that the victims were taken to a military hospital and received the necessary assistance.

At the present time, nothing threatens the life and health of the injured soldiers.

The shelling occurred on December 29 at 15:45 in the Trumba area in the southeastern part of the Idlib zone. The BTR-82A was fired upon from the territory under the control of the "pro-Turkish bandit groups".

The command of the Russian group of forces in Syria, together with the Turkish military, as well as the Syrian security agencies, determine those involved in the attack.

Let us recall you that earlier Russian drones in Syria destroyed the base of Turkish jihadists in Syria.

In August, it was reported about the shelling of a Russian-Turkish patrol in Idlib. As a result, the Russian military received a shell shock.
