BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – A large number of Russian soldiers are en route to Syria to partake in the ongoing operations against the Islamic State (ISIS) in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, a source in Damascus told Al-Masdar this morning.

The Russian soldiers were transported via the Ropucha-class landing ship, Azov, through the Bosphorus Strait to the Mediterranean Sea today.

Several pictures of the Azov transporting the Russian soldiers and military equipment to the Port of Tartous were released by the Russian media on Monday morning – please see below:

The Russian soldiers are expected to arrive in Tartous this week.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
