BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Russian Ministry of Defense shipped more military equipment to Syria this week as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies prepare for a new offensive in the Latakia Governorate and Al-Ghaab Plain region.

According to maritime shipping observer Yoruk Isik, the U.S. sanctioned Russian Pizhma cargo ship recently transited the Bosphorus Strait that links the Mediterranean and Black seas.

The type of military cargo on the ship is not known; however, the Russian Armed Forces typically transport new equipment to Syria as new operations near.

The next major Syrian military operation is expected to take place in the Al-Ghaab Plain; this will coincide with another offensive in the northeastern region of the Latakia Governorate.

The goal of this army operation will be to secure the Idlib-Latakia axis, while also putting their forces in position to strike the key city of Jisr Al-Shughour near the Turkish border.
