BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:50 P.M.) – The Russian Navy has been amassing a large number of ships off the coast of Syria as the Sochi Agreement continues to fall apart.

According to media reports, Russia has sent their Admiral Makarov frigate with long-range Kalibr cruise missiles to the Mediterranean; it will join the Admiral Grigorovich, Admiral Essen and Pytlivy frigates, landing ship Nikolai Filchenkov and the Vishny Volochek missile corvette.

This move by the Russian Navy appears to be in response to the constant ceasefire violations committed by the jihadist rebels inside the Idlib buffer zone.

A military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this afternoon that the Russian naval buildup was conducted in response to the ceasefire violations and refusal of armed groups to leave the buffer zone.

Excellent. That will provide backup for the SAA in Idlib trying to prevent Turkish expansion. Now if the Kurds would only talk to the Syrian Government about a joint effort against Erdogan’s neo-Ottoman intentions of a Syrian land grab…..

As if anyone expected these groups to abide by the agreement. It was only a matter of time before they would be taken care of . As Assad said they will all be encompassed into Syria sooner or later.. Looks like sooner.

I$rael is threatening to destroy S300’s provided to Syria by Russia if the missiles are used against I$rael. Does I$rael realize that S300 is a mobile system?
