For the first time, Russia has deployed four Su-35 fighter jets at Qamishli Airport in northeastern Syria, according to Charles Lister, director of the Middle East Institute of Syria and counterterrorism programs.
As Lister points out, this is a remarkable move on the part of Russia since the airport is very close to a US base. He also notes that Russian forces two days conducted an air raid at a distance of two kilometres from the border of Syria with Turkey.
As it was reported on NEMESISHD.GR, the Russian air force together with the Syrian air force carried out heavy airstrikes two days ago on the base of the 23rd division of the Turkish-backed FSA, in the village of Kah, located in northern Idlib.
Turkish forces also appear to be preparing for a new assault, as credible sources report the movement of large volumes of military equipment, tanks and artillery from Turkey to Syria.
