Despite the ongoing ceasefire, the Russian Ministry of Defense is attempting to replace the military hardware that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) lost during the Turkish military’s large-scale attack in early March.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has been sending multiple ships to Syria each week to help resupply the Syrian Army, who is currently on high-alert as they wait for the militant forces to withdraw from the southern part of the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia).
