The Russian Air Force is busy carrying out numerous airstrikes around Syria, leaving certain areas vulnerable to attacks from the Islamist rebels of both the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS); this has created the need for the Russian Navy to intervene in this Syrian Conflict for the  first time since they arrived in Tartous.

Recently, the Russian Navy has positioned three naval vessels off the coast of Latakia in anticipation for their massive cruise missile assault that is likely to occur in the coming days, as the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies inch closer to the Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) controlled Al-Ghaab Plains of the Hama Governorate.

The Russian Navy will play an imperative role against the Islamist rebel forces, as they prepare to bombard numerous sites in Syria’s western countryside that they deem a threat to the sovereignty of the country and the Syrian Armed Forces protecting Syria from the numerous factions of Islamist rebels threatening their control around the country.

According to a Syrian Army source in Latakia, the Russian naval vessels can be seen from the shores of the aforementioned provincial capital; this was confirmed by more than one source in the province – the source added that the Russian Navy has prepared their long range cruise missiles to be fired into the country from the Mediterranean Sea
