The unmanned flying vehicles were confronted near a helipad in Jubb Ramlah village in Hama province, Reuters reported on Tuesday, citing the Syrian state-run broadcaster.

There have been no reports of casualties or any damage.

The Russian Defence Ministry said earlier on Tuesday in a daily bulletin it had registered nearly a dozen of ceasefire violations in the Syrian provinces of Hama and Latakia.

"Over the last 24 hours, the Russian party of the Russia-Turkey Commission on violations of the Joint Agreement has registered 8 cases of firing in Latakia province", the ministry's reconciliation centre for Syria said.

Turkish military monitors have registered five violations in the Hama province and one in Latakia, according to the bulletin.

"Over the last 24 hours, the Russian Centre for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and Refugee Migration Monitoring has held one humanitarian action in Halvaniyah district, in Aleppo province. People have received food supplies with a total weight of 2.175 tons", the reconciliation centre added.

Last Thursday, militants opened rocket fire on the town of Kamkhanah in the Syrian province of Hama, leaving five people injured, according to the SANA news agency.

In early May, terrorists increased the frequency of attacks on the Syrian provinces of Hama, Aleppo and Latakia. They have also been attempting attacks on Syrian army positions in the region. Government forces have responded with attacks on terrorists in the province of Idlib. Syrian forces are targeting Nusra Front* terrorist group depots, artillery positions and observation posts.

Syria has been in the state of civil war since 2011, with government forces fighting against numerous opposition groups as well as militant and terrorist organizations.

Russia and Turkey are both guarantors of the Syrian ceasefire alongside Iran. Russia also sends regular humanitarian aid shipments to Syria and is helping the country rebuild from ruins as the eight-year civil war subsides.

*al-Nusra Front is a terrorist group banned in Russia and many other countries.
