Russia's military said on Monday it had shot down an unidentified drone that came close to its Syrian air base at Khmeimim, RIA news agency said, citing the Russian Defence Ministry.

"There are neither casualties nor physical damage. Russia's Khmeimim air base is operating as normal," it said.

The British-based war monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said explosions had been heard near the base and appeared to have come from Russian air defences confronting an attack.
