The first batch of Russian Marines have arrived to the Kuweires Military Airport as part of an advisory unit that is meant to overlook the Syrian Arab Army’s military operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a field source with the Tiger Forces in the Al-Bab Plateau, a little less than 50 Russian Marines were deployed to the Kuweires Military Airport on Thursday morning after a short stint in the Latakia Governorate that included trying and advising the new recruits from the National Defense Forces (NDF).

While the military source was unable to provide much detail regarding their contingency, he did inform Al-Masdar News that the Russian Marines brought their heavy weaponry with them, including several missiles that were housed in the Kuweires warehouses near the helicopter airfield.

Al-Masdar military analysts believe that the Russian Marines have deployed to the east Aleppo front in order to eventually meet-up with the U.S. backed “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) and the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) that are combating ISIS near the strategic city of Menbeij.

The Russian Marines have spent the majority of their time advising the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard in northern Latakia; however, it appears that the Russian Ministry of Defense has other plans in northern Syria.
