Russian Cargo ship moves tanks en route to Syria – PHOTOS

The Russian Ministry of Defense is continuing its military equipment deliveries to the Damascus forces of the Syrian Arab Army as another cargo ship was photographed transiting the Bosphorus Strait between the Mediterranean and Black seas.

Maritime observer Yoruk Isik said the LST Saratov 150 of the Black Sea Fleet was seen transiting the Bosphorus Strait, en route to the Syrian port-city of Tartous.

As pointed out by Isik above, the Saratov 150 specializes in transporting armored vehicles, including tanks and armored personnel carriers (APC).

Turkish military’s attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) equipment since early March of this year necessitated the Russia's delivery of tanks and other armoured vehicles to Damascus troops. 
According to AMN, during the Turkish military attack, several soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) were killed, while tens of armoured and technical vehicles were destroyed by the barrage.

Since the attack, however, the Russian Ministry of Defense has increased its cargo shipments to Syria, as this is the third time this year that Moscow has shipped tanks and other armored vehicles to the Arab Republic.

Russia usually amplifies these deliveries to Syria when they are planning a new offensive; this is especially true, given the Syrian Army’s buildup around the Jabal Al-Zawiya region of southern Idlib.
