Syria in the Last 24 Hours

The last place to look for information regarding the Syrian-Russian military cooperation is the media in general, and social media in particular.

Since the Soviet Union, Damascus and Moscow shared a close military relationship; until today, Syria and Russia share a very close military relationship; most of its details are not disclosed, and trust us when we say, everything disclosed does not even scratch the surface.

A world to everyone, only stick with official statements and nothing else.

When the time is right, and if the command sees its beneficial to do so, everything will be made clear.
