Rebel and militant drone attacks on an airbase in Syria used by Damascus ally Russia have increased since last month but all were shot down, an activist group said Friday.In such attacks, small unmanned aircraft have been loaded with explosives.On Thursday, Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova blamed "terrorists" for the attacks, using Damascus and Moscow's term for both rebels and militants.Earlier this month, Russian army spokesman Gen. Igor Konachenkov also reported a spike in these attempts in July.Analysts say Russia-backed regime forces will likely only target a small part of Idlib with any upcoming military campaign, around the town of Jisr al-Shughur.
