BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:35 P.M.) – The Israel-based Image Satellite International group released new satellite images from the Russian Hmeimim Airbase in southwest Latakia this week.

The ISI satellite images showed the deployment of the Russian Iskander (SS-26) missile system to the Hmeimim Airbase near the coastal city of Jableh.

While the satellite images reveal the presence of the Iskander system at the Hmeimim Airbase, it is not clear when the Russians actually deployed it to Syria.

A Syrian military source in Damascus speaking on the condition of anonymity told Al-Masdar this morning that the deployment of the Iskander missile system likely coincides with the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statements on the Idlib Governorate.

However, it is important to note that talks regarding an Idlib offensive have been ongoing for over a year without any action on the part of the Syrian Arab Army or their Russian allies.

Should a Syrian Arab Army offensive be carried out in the Idlib Governorate, it will likely have to be agreed upon by the Russian and Turkish armed forces.

Only useful to defend Russia stuff, but not Syria people. Syria people can be killed by Israel whenever Israel decides it. Russia lacks of honesty toward Syria people since it playing doble moral with Turkey and Israel.

Israel has nuclear weapons thanks to America. Would you rather Russia attack Israel with Iskander missiles and start a nuclear war, where all Syrians will die? Or, is saving the country from ISIS, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia not enough? What would you rather do, my friend?

Nigel, you’re just as repulsive as the Israeli nationalists you aim to wipe out. Israeli racism is just as disgusting as Arab nationalism, European, American, Chinese nationalism.
