Russian Jets Use Iraqi Airspace

Russian jets use Iraqi airspace to monitor “DAESH” mercenary-terrorists in east Syria

(FNA) ~ The Russian Air Force has conducted over 20 reconnaissance flights above the Deir Ezzur governorate in Eastern Syria, capturing footage of the ISIL terrorists’ movements through their strategic supply route between Deir Ezzur and Anbar governorate in Western Iraq, military sources said.

A military source from the Syrian Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard told the country’s media that the Russian Air Force has notified the Syrian army’s officers stationed at the Deir Ezzur airbase of their flights above the province, adding that these were merely for reconnaissance purposes and that they are coordinating with the Syrian Air Force to monitor the ISIL terrorist group’s movements.

While conducting these flights above the Deir Ezzur governorate’s cities of Al-Mayadeen, Abukamaal, and Mohassan, the Russian air force repeatedly crossed the Iraqi border and entered the Anbar governorate, where they flew as far East as the city of Al-Heel to capture footage of the ISIL terrorist group, the Massdar website reported.

This is the second time in two weeks that the Russian air force has entered Iraq’s airspace; however, the Syrian military source asserted that they were granted approval by the Iraqi Armed Forces before crossing their border.

Chinese, Russian Air Forces to Use Hmamiyat Airfields to Bomb ISIL in Syria

Local sources said that the Chinese military will soon send its aircraft and aerial equipment to the Hmamiyat Airfields inside the Syrian Bassel Al-Assad International Airport to join the Russian and Syrian air fleet.

The Hmamiyat Airfields are located inside a section of the Bassel Al-Assad International Airport that has been used by the Syrian Air Force as an airbase to conduct flights along the vast coast – the airport itself is located in the Jableh district of Lattakia.

According to a senior officer in the Syrian army, the Hmamiyat Airfields are primarily used by the Russian Air Force at the moment, adding the Syrian Air Force moved most of their aerial equipment from the Bashar Al-Assad International Airport to the Homs Governorate in preparation for the Chinese Air Force’s arrival.

Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria establish ‘joint information center’ for anti-ISIS operations

Russia, Syria, Iran and Iraq have agreed to establish an information center in the Iraqi capital Baghdad to coordinate their operations against DAESH (the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS-ISIL) terrorist organization.

The main goal of the center will be gathering, processing and analyzing current information about the situation in the Middle East.

The information center in the Iraqi capital will be headed by an officer of one of the founding countries on a rotating basis. Rotation will take place every three months. According to the source, Iraq will run the center for the next three months.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had recently called for establishing a broad-based anti-terrorism coalition in cooperation with the Syrian government, stressing that Russia will continue to support Syria militarily to that effect and in accordance with the military contracts signed between the two countries.
