BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force ha allegedly deployed new aircraft to the Hmeimim Aircraft in western Syria, a Russian Telegram channel claimed on July 11th.
According to the Telegram channel Military Informant, the Russian Air Force has deployed a couple of new Su-34 and Su-25 jets to the Hmeimim Airbase.
The Telegram channel released satellite images showing the presence of these Su-34 and Su-25 jets at the Hmeimim Airbase near the coastal city of Jableh.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to launch a new military operation inside the Idlib Governorate after a string of failed jihadist offensives in nearby Hama.
The recent buildup of Russian military aircraft could be due to this upcoming Syrian Army operation; however, this is not confirmed.
