(FNA) ~ The Russian Navy has sent its only aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov, to the Eastern waters of the Mediterranean Sea to help the Syrian army in its anti-terrorism operations in Raqqa province, a senior military expert disclosed.

“This aircraft carrier will be stationed in a location which is only four to eight kilometers away from the port of Tartous and the fighter jets can take off from it to increase the volume of their attacks on cities like Raqqa which are still under ISIL’s occupation,” Alexi Lyankov said.

The carrier is projected to host at least 15 Sukhoi-33, Sukhoi-27 and Mig-29 and 10 choppers of K52, K27 and K31 in Syrian mission.


Reports said on Sunday that a huge cargo vessel of Russia, carrying a large volume of arms, ammunition and other advanced types of military equipment for the Syrian Armed Forces, entered waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

The huge Russian vessel of Grigori Bobidovich, which left the port city of Novorossiysk in Russia a couple of days ago, passed Bosphorus strait and entered the Mediterranean sea waters en route to Syria.

The Russian vessel’s final destination is Syria’s Tartous port, the main logistic center of the Russian Navy in Mediterranean sea, to unload its cargo and deliver them to the Syrian armed forces.

In last two weeks, at least four huge cargo vessels of Russia have left Bosphorus and Dardanelles straits, carrying military consignments for the Russian fighter jets and Syrian army.

Media reports said on Thursday that the Russian warship, BSF Saratov, sailed through the Bosphorus and Dardanelles in the Black Sea and entered the Mediterranean Sea.

According to Syria al-Aan, the Turkish websites have released some photos of the warship sailing through the Bosphorus strait.

They reported that Saratov left Novorossiysk port in the Black sea towards Tartous port in Syria.

They also claimed that the warship was carrying a big cargo which has been covered.

This was the sixth voyage of Saratov warship in the current year.


Russian warships and naval vessels, often two at a time, have been seen passing through the Straits en route to Syria from Russia’s Northern Black Sea ports with increasing frequency this year.

Most of the military supplies, weapons, ammunition, and equipment that Russia supplies to the Syrian government are shipped from ports on the Black Sea, primarily Sevastopol and Sochi, through the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles, to the two Syrian ports, Tartous and Lattakia.



Misil de crucero ruso destruye almacén de cohetes TOW de terroristas en Siria

(HispanTV) ~ Rusia lanzó el domingo un misil de crucero de largo alcance contra un objetivo terrorista en Al-Qassimyah, sita en la provincia norteña siria de Alepo.

De acuerdo con la información aportada por el portal Almasdarnews, el misil disparado por un buque de guerra ruso desde el mar Mediterráneo, destruyó un gran edificio en el que los terroristas almacenaban los lanzacohetes antitanque guiados Tow, de fabricación estadounidense.

“Las fuerzas rusas confían en la información que les brinda el Ejército sirio para llevar a cabo ataques con misiles de largo alcance”, señaló el medio, para agregar que la localización precisa de las posiciones de los grupos extremistas fue facilitada por el mayor general sirio, Suheil al-Hassan.

Las fuerzas rusas confían en la información que les brinda el Ejército sirio para llevar a cabo ataques con misiles de largo alcance”, informa el portal Almasdarnews.

Desde su intervención militar en Siria para apoyar a Damasco en la lucha contra las bandas terroristas en septiembre pasado, Rusia ha atacado en varias ocasiones las posiciones terroristas, sobre todo, del EIIL (Daesh, en árabe),lanzando misiles de crucero desde el mar Caspio y el mar Mediterráneo.

Entretanto, desde Alepo se ha reportado que las unidades de las fuerzas especiales sirias han liberado las granjas de al-Mallah, en el norte de Alepo, y están preparando otra ofensiva terrestre para ampliar su dominio en la zona.

Los informes apuntan a que durante los combates en los últimos cuatro días entre las tropas sirias y los grupos terroristas, entre ellos el Frente Al-Nusra, rama siria de Al-Qaeda, han muerto alrededor de 150 terroristas y muchos más han resultado heridos.
