BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 A.M.) – The Russian Aerospace Forces have deployed their elite MIG-29smt fighter jets to the Syrian frontier for the first time during this seven year long conflict.

According to a statement released by the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Russian Aerospace Forces will begin using the MIG-29smt in Syria to conduct missions against terrorist groups inside the country.

Despite already having the powerful Su-30 and Su-35 fighters jets at the Hmaymim Airbase in southeast Latakia, the Russian Ministry of Defense made the odd decision to deploy the MIG-29smt to Syria.

The deployment of these jets likely has to do with the Israeli Air Force’s attack on the Tartous Governorate city of Masyaf, which has a large presence of Russian military personnel.

The MIG-29smt possesses air-to-air missiles that can score precise hits on enemy aircraft.

May God greatly multiply back to Russia many times each dollar it has spent in helping and protecting Syria. May God cause Russia to be strong and not allow for any partitioning of Syria by the Kurds and those allied to them.

Russia should draw a clear border line between Syria and israel and activate the S400. I mean the israelis won’t stop with such attacks, if Russia doesn’t set an example.
