BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – On Friday, the Russian military began their first air patrols over the vast Syrian-Turkish border.
Russian military choppers were seen flying over several border points in northern Syria, including cities like Ras Al-‘Ayn, Al-Qamishli, Al-Debasiyeh, Al-Malkiyah, Kobane, and Tal Abyad.
Video footage of these patrols was captured earlier in the day, as Russian choppers closely monitored the fragile situation in northern Syria.
