DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:20 P.M.) – The number of active Russian fighter jets in Hmeymim airbase has notably increased after the US, UK and France launched a joint missile strike against Syria earlier this month.

Satellite images taken for the coastal base of Hmeymim on April 15 show an upsurge in the number of  operational Russian jets which conduct airstrikes against jihadi groups across the war-torn Syria.

The images also show that three MIG-29 jets of the Syrian Air Force were moved to the coastal airbase.

The aircrafts shown in the satellite images are as follows:

Aircraft type Number
SU-34 12
SU-24 9
SU-25 3
SU-30 4
SU-35 4
II-76 2
An-124 1
IRIAF C-130 2
MIG-29 (SyAAF)

It is getting closer and closer to a showdown – those US + Israelis are in panic mode and can see and feel their demise.

Twit. This has been foreseen and planned for over the last 100 years. Why do you think America has spent over a Trillion (known) dollars on defense in the last decade? And what’s the best defense jug-head? The best defense is jamming your fist into a bullies mouth and making him cry for the crimes he has committed. That’s just the reportable money, the public money. Don’t think it’s possible that for ever dollar spent in the open two have been spent in special locations by “very special” private contractors? America has been being nice in Syria because we always… Read more »

Your yank corpses have been streaming back home to yankistan in body bags ever since Russia entered Syria. Yanks have always been terrified of Russians since the Vietnam war when small contingents of Russians completely massacred thousands of yank soldiers. You yanks will be nothing but radioactive lard in a glass desert if you try to get out of line.

The Israelis are always playing the victim and in a panic, imagine their shock when they really get hit on their own territory! I think they will be more stunned than anything. What will they do without the US to ensure their safety?

Why waste the money? They can’t be built “hard” enough. Stand them up and we will knock them down.

Why! They are completely safe and no one will attack them because they are part and parcel of the Zionist cabal.

They don’t need to because US nor Isreal will ever attack Russian bases.

Smoke’em like a cheap cigar! 75% of the Russian airfarce is rusting c**p sitting on the ground cause they can’t keep them flying. Let’s end this farce once and for all and send a MSG to China that they will start to help change this world for the better or learn the lesson of humility too. Putin is a throwaway, irredeemable. Xi is still on the fence. If we can just make it a 100 more years then everyone can take-off on their own since this planet isn’t large enough for all of us.

It is time Iran hit back at Zionists or it will lose all credibility like the puffer fish Russia which does nothing and is in league with Zionists.

Russia has been proved to be nothing more than a puffer fish. At the moment it is filling itself with air to show its so called “military might. But it is nothing but air!

Is that why everyone is afraid to touch the Russian bases? No country in its right mind is going to attack the largest nuclear power on Earth.
