Kuwaiti newspaper, Al-Rai, have claimed that Russian forces are on the ground in Syria and have taken over multiple strategic positions and forced Islamist forces to retreat.
Al-Masdar News was unable to verify this report; however, an alleged picture from southern Aleppo has recently surfaced of a T-90 Tank in Syria.
It claims Russian military forces have been providing cover for T-90 tanks along with military air support which have attacked multiple strategic targets held by rebel forces in Idlib and Latakia.
If true, this would contradict Russian President Vladimir Putin insistence that Russia has no intention of sending ground forces into the Syrian War.
