Syrian air defenses intercept missiles fired at Latakia: state media

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Missiles were fired from the sea at several locations in the Syrian coastal city of Latakia on Monday but were intercepted by air defenses, Syrian state media said.

The official SANA news agency said the Technical Industry Institution in the state-controlled city had been targeted. SANA added that it was not immediately known who fired the missiles.

A Russian military plane furthermore, has vanished. It may have been shot down accidentally by the Syrian army. There is quite a bit going on over right now. Putin and Erdogan agreed to a buffer zone this afternoon. Just saying, this is world news, it might be something even casual users might pay attention to. There is a lot of trouble in this world to single out this or that story.

My thoughts are with the family of the servicemen on the plane. Who fire missiles in these situations and how accurate they are is also the subject of counter-opposing claims. Assets lost to friendly fire is not an uncommon situation.
