Russia sends at least 12 warships to Syria


The deployment is presumably a warning to Israeli and Western officials regarding military intervention against Assad.

In a move considered aggressive by US and European officials, Russia has sent at least 12 warships to patrol waters near its naval base in Tartous, Syria.

The deployment appears to be a warning to Israeli and Western officials against military intervention in Syria’s bloody civil war, which has now claimed the lives of over 80,000 people.
