For the first time since the advent of this armed conflict in Syria, the Russian Federation is providing the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with satellite imagery in order to promote the military cooperation between the two countries and to fulfill its promise to boost its support for the latter.

According to an SAA source, the Russian Federation sent a military delegation to meet with the logistical wing of the Syrian Arab Army in the port-city of Tartous on Tuesday; this marked the first time that the two countries agreed to direct intervention through technological resources.

The source added that Russia’s intervention through technological resources is meant to obstruct the growth of terrorism within Syria’s borders and to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) – a terrorist group that is currently operating in a half dozen countries in the Middle East.

A boost in technology is not the only thing the Russian Federation is providing the Syrian Arab Army; reports of an increased supply of weapons, including heavy armory, are said to be arriving into Syria’s ports in the coming weeks.

Last week, the Syrian Arab Army showcased some of its armory at the battles of Al-Zabadani  and the Al-Ghaab Plain, including the BTR-82 armored personnel carrier; however, after inquiring about the weapons delivery, the military source stated he could not divulge information regarding the heavy armory.

That’s good. If this war is to end one side has to get a decisive edge, and hopefully it’s the SAA.
