BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – A Russian cargo ship was photographed transiting the Bosphorus Strait towards the Mediterranean waters this week, as they continue to send military equipment to the government forces in Syria.

According to maritime observer, Yoruk Isik, the Saint Petersburg-based TGK-SPB’s Russian flag roro vessel, Sparta, which is owned by Ministry of Defense’s Oboronlogistika, transited the Bosphorus Strait en route to the Syrian port-city of Tartous.

Isik said the ship’s cargo was made up of military and technical supplies, which undoubtedly be delivered to the Syrian Armed Forces, who are currently in the process of preparing for a new offensive in the Idlib Governorate.

Since the Turkish military’s powerful attack on the Syrian Army’s positions in early March, the Russian Armed Forces have increased their supply shipments to the Arab Republic to replenish the equipment that was lost.

Among the Russian shipments most recently were tanks and armored personnel carriers (APC), which needed to be replaced because the SAA’s arsenal in northwestern Syria was either destroyed or badly damaged during the Turkish attack.
