BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Two large Russian warships are making their way to the Port of Tartous in western Syria, Turkish maritime observer Yoruk Isik reported this week.

According to Isik, the Russian warships, Ropucha class LSTM Tsezar Kunikov and the Ropucha class landing ship Azov 151, transited the Bosphorus Strait en route to the Port of Tartous.

In addition to the arrival of these warships, two Russian heavy transport aircraft have also begun transporting equipment to Syria’s Hmeimim Airport.

According to a report, the Russian heavy transport aircraft, the IL-76 and AN-124, have reportedly made 14 flights from Russia to the Hmeimim Airport in the last three weeks.

These aircraft reportedly transported a large quantity of equipment to the Syrian military, who is currently involved in a fierce battle in northwestern Syria.

This equipment should give the Syrian Arab Army a major boost as they attempt to push into the jihadist-held areas in Idlib, Hama, and Latakia.
