BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – Satellite images shared on social media recently revealed the Russian Air Force’s presence at an airport near the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in central Syria.

Based on the satellite images, which were dated for May 5th, the Russian Air Force has deployed an Su-25 “Frogfoot” jet and one Forpost UAV to the T-4 Military Airport west of Palmyra.

Also present at the airport was a Syrian Air Force Su-24 jet, which is likely the aircraft that has been used to bomb the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in the Palmyra area.

The Russian Air Force previously used the T-4 Airport during the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) campaign to retake Palmyra and Al-Sukhneh from the Islamic State in 2016.

Since then, the T-4 Airport has mostly remained unused, with some reports claiming that Iran was planning to transfer supplies to Syria via this installation.
