Syria T-90

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recently received a large shipment of military equipment, including tanks and armored vehicles, from the Russian military at the Tartous port in western Syria.

According to a satellite image that was posted this week, the Russian military has transported 25 tanks and 16 artillery guns, which will likely be transferred to the Syrian Arab Army in the coming days.

“In the satellite image presented, you can see that a large platform was allocated specially for the deployment of military equipment in the port of Tarotus, while specialists managed to count 41 tanks, as well as many trucks and special equipment,” the Russian aviation publication Aria.Pro reported on Monday. 

This latest delivery by the Russian Armed Forces comes at the same time that the Syrian Arab Army prepares to launch a large-scale offensive in the Latakia, Hama, and Idlib governorates of northwetern Syria. 

The Syrian Army has deployed a large number of reinforcements to the Al-Ghaab Plain, northeast Latakia, and southern Idlib for the upcoming offensive that will be led by the 25th Special Mission Forces (formerly Tiger Forces), 4th Armored Division, and Republican Guard. 

These aforementioned divisions of the military had previously led the southern Idlib and northern Hama offensives; they are considered some of the most elite units in the armed forces.

Los medios también deberían de informar, ¿Quién les abastece de tanques y otros armamentos pesado a los terroristas?…

I seriously doubt Russia is giving tanks and heavy weapons to Muslim brotherhood terrorists and grey wolves. That’s the doings of ErDODran the Reprobate.
