Two missiles were fired at a Russian passenger plane flying over Syria that managed to maneuver out of the line of fire a source in Moscow told Russian Interfax news agency on Monday, Russia Today television network reported. 

The airplane was reportedly carrying 200 passengers at the time. 

“Syrian officials informed us that on Monday morning, unidentified forces launched two ground-to-air missiles which exploded in the air very close to a  civilian aircraft belonging to a Russian airline,” the source said, adding, "it remains unclear whether the attackers knew whether it [the plane] was Russian or not.”
