A Russian armored vehicle was hit by an explosion while on a reconnaissance mission ahead of a joint patrol with Turkey in a Kurdish-populated area of northern Syria. Three military policemen were injured.
The incident happened on Monday in the Kobani district of the Aleppo Province, along the Syrian-Turkish border, the Russian Defense Ministry said. The military policemen were on a reconnaissance trip in preparation for an upcoming patrol with Turkish forces when an improvised bomb detonated on the road.
The three servicemen inside the vehicle “sustained light injuries and bruises,” but there is no threat to their lives, the Defense Ministry stated.
