BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – On April 12th, the Russian Federation sent a large amount of military equipment to Syria, including tanks and other armored vehicles.

According to the maritime observer Yoruk Isik, the Russian Federation’s Project 1171 ЧФ Black Sea Fleet 197th Assault Ship Brigade Tapir (NATO:Alligator) class LST Saratov transited on April 10th, the Bosphorus Strait that links the Black and Mediterranean seas.

The Russian ship would later arrive to Syria’s Port of Tartous, where the cargo on the ship was later unloaded and transported to the Syrian and Russian armed forces inside the country.

Now, nearly a month later, a photo of the Russian’s ship cargo has been released and shared on several social media platforms.

In the photo, several soldiers can be seen at the dock for the Port of Tartous, while the Saratov’s cargo is being prepared to be unloaded.

The arrival of these armored vehicles came a month after the Turkish Air Force launched a powerful attack in the Idlib Governorate, which resulted in the death of several soldiers and the destruction of a number of mechanisms, including tanks and armored personnel carriers (APC).
