DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:40 A.M.) – A group of officers from the Egyptian Army traveled to the Syrian port-city of Tartous on Tuesday to train with Russia’s military advisors near the Islamic State’s front-lines.

According to several reports from local activists, the Egyptian officers were accompanied by Russian military personnel upon their arrival to Tartous on Tuesday.

The Egyptian, Russian and Syrian militaries have not confirmed these reports; however, if true, it could be an important step towards reconciliation.

Recently, the Egyptian and Syrian governments began their diplomatic rapprochement after the Morsi regime cutoff ties with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in 2012.

It’s clear that the Morsi regime having the infamous Muslim Brotherhood as party, al-Qaeda being a MB offshoot… It’s clear that the actual Egypt having common foes with Syria, interaction is likely to help a lot and the help of Egyptian air-force too… We may see Rafales pounding rascals soon…
