A fourth landing ship of the Russian Navy is sent to Syria
MOSCOW, (BM) – The large landing ship of the Russian Navy Novocherkassk passed the Bosphorus and entered the Mediterranean Sea, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing Komersant.ru.
Presumably, the ship is heading to the Syrian port of Tartus. Since the end of February, the frigates Admiral Makarov and Admiral Grigorovich, as well as the BDK Orsk, have already been sent to Syria.
Information about the movements of Novocherkassk was published by the Yoruk Isik Twitter account, which tracks ship passage through the Bosphorus.
According to him, the ship is carrying a “heavy load.” The BDK was accompanied by Turkish coast guard boats.
BulgarianMilitary.com recalls two Russian frigates are are already in the area of Syria.
Another Admiral Essen frigate has been performing tasks in the Mediterranean since December 2019. BulgarianMilitary.com indicates that the frigates had already repeatedly participated in the Russian operation against militants off the coast of Syria.
Yesterday we reported 14 Caliber cruise missiles were launched from the area of the Russian Navy base in Tartus, which inflicted a powerful blow on jihadists in Idlib.
“14 cruise missiles crossed the mid section over the Syrian coast line and landed in Idlib” said Syrian MC in Twitter.
Recall that at the beginning of the year, the conflict between the Syrian and Turkish military escalated in Idlib. On March 1, the Syrian army shot down a Turkish drone, and Turkey – two Syrian Su-24 aircraft. Syria has closed the airspace over Idlib.
