The airplane returning from Sochi, Russia, on Friday was under a missile attack at the Syrian capital city Damascus airport by the militants of terrorist groups, said Jirair Reisian, an Armenian member of the Syrian parliament, speaking to Armenian News-NEWS.am.
He noted that the passengers on board this plane were returning from the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi.
“The missile which the terrorists launched fell a few meters away from the aircraft,” said Reisian. “After that, two other missiles were launched in their direction.
“The objective of the terrorists was to disrupt the Sochi initiative; but they did not succeed.”
The Syrian Armenian MP added that, fortunately, there were no casualties, and the plane was not damaged.
