BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Russian Navy has transported more heavy equipment to the Syrian military this month as the latter prepares to launch a new offensive in the Idlib Governorate.

According to regional observer Yoruk Isik, the Russian Navy’s Black Sea Fleet LST Orsk 148 transited the Bosphorus Strait towards the Mediterranean Sea this week to transport more equipment to the Syrian military.

Isik reported that the Russian ship was carrying desert camo Ural 4320 trucks that were destined for the port of Tartous in western Syria.

The Syrian Arab Army is now preparing to launch a new operation to expel the jihadist groups from the demilitarized zone in the Idlib and Hama governorates.

This operation will likely require a large number of military personnel and heavy equipment, as the jihadist rebels in the area are relatively strong and deeply embedded.
