BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – Two Russian cargo ships are currently on the way to Syria’s Tartous to deliver weapons and supplies, several images revealed on Saturday.

In two separate posts on Twitter, maritime observer Yoruk Isik photographed the two Russian ships as they cross the Bosphorus Strait.

According to Isik, the first Russian ship, the Project 1171 Black Sea Fleet 197th Landing Ship Brigade Tapir LST Saratov, is currently on the way to the Port of Tartous after transiting the Bosphorus Strait that links the Mediterranean and Black seas.

A second Russian cargo ship was also photographed on Saturday as it made its way through the Bosphorus Strait.

According to Isik, the Russian Navy’s Project 775 Black Sea Fleet 197th Landing Shop Brigade’s Ropucha class LSTM Novocherkassk 142 is currently on the way to the Port of Tartous.

This new supply convoy from the Russian military comes just two months after the Turkish Armed Forces badly damaged and destroyed several armored vehicles belonging to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Idlib, Hama, and Aleppo governorates.
