Russian Navy Positions Itself Off the Coast of Latakia

The Russian Air Force is busy carrying out numerous airstrikes around Syria, leaving certain areas vulnerable to attacks from the Islamist rebels of both the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS); this has created the need for the Russian Navy to intervene in this Syrian Conflict for the first time since they arrived in Tartous.

Recently, the Russian Navy has positioned three naval vessels off the coast of Latakia in anticipation for their massive cruise missile assault that is likely to occur in the coming days, as the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies inch closer to the Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) controlled Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate.
