Russian Forces Arrive in Southern Syria

________________________

Last night, a military source told us Russian paratroopers and spetsnaz arrived in as-Suwayda Governorate in southern Syria this week, following a US attack on a pro-government convoy near an Iraqi border crossing. The Russian troops will advise Syrian government troops in southern Syria and deter any potential response from US and Jordanian forces illegally in as-Suwayda and Homs Governorates. According to media sources in southern Syria, the Russian forces plan to build a base on the border of as-Suwayda Governorate with Jordan; however, we couldn’t confirm this. Rumours also surfaced regarding the deployment of the Russian 31 Spetsnaz Brigade; allegedly, they intend to engage enemy forces and help government troops seize an Iraqi border crossing.
