Second Khmeimim: Russia significantly strengthened the air base in Al-Qamishli

Russia continues to strengthen its aerospace forces at Syrian bases. In the northeastern part of the country, the military of the Russian Federation and the SAR conducted exercises to destroy ground objects and carried out the transfer of combat aircraft to new airfields. The contingent of Russian aviation is also growing at the airbase in Al-Qamishli, located 5 km from Turkey.

Russian telegram channels report the transfer of 12 Su-34 bombers, 5 Su-35S fighters, several MiG-29s and 2 Ka-52 helicopters to Al-Kamyshly. Before that, the Mi-35M and Mi-8 helicopters were already based here. The rotorcraft also landed at the airfield near Metras in northern Syria. In further maneuvers with the Syrian units, air defense systems will also be involved to practice actions to destroy drones.

Thus, Moscow has significantly increased its military equipment in Al-Qamishli, actually turning the base into a second Khmeimim, which is located 45 km from the Syrian-Turkish border.

In addition to military equipment, transport aircraft - Il-76 and An-124, as well as passenger Tu-154M arrive at Russian facilities in Syria. Experts attribute this increase to the upcoming military operation of the Turkish armed forces in northern Syria. According to sources from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, all measures for the transfer of Russian forces have been agreed with the Kurdish side, which is a clear signal for Ankara about the Kremlin's increased attention to the actions of the Turks.

    Why do we need Syria if we lose Donbass?

      How can you lose something that doesn't belong to you? Donbass is the territory of Ukraine, if you don't know. And Russia’s Syria is really unnecessary.

        You boasted that you were a citizen of the world. Citizenship, apartment - I don't want to live. What have you forgotten on Russian-language sites? A Jew, but the soul is Russian. I want to communicate in Russian! If I'm wrong, then go to your Jews and Americans and talk to them! You will be better understood there.

          It's hard for you to imagine, but at the same time I am now communicating on two more sites in English and looking through my mail in Hebrew. And the instructions to whom to blame, leave for your homies, I do not need them.

            You need to read books. Your business, of course, but your ignorance is terrible. As for you to blame, these are not instructions, you again do not understand the essence of things, this is a wish. And it is absolutely true. Forum users are tired of laughing at your bottomless stupidity.

          About "citizen of the world" you are in vain. This was all before, when Jews lived all over the world.
          Now, judging by my friend, they studied together at a university in the USSR, a Jew, lives in Canada and he does not consider himself an Israeli.
          Today's Israelis ... not with a "Russian soul" ... they are just the opposite.

          The sausage migrant will not be his own anywhere. What is it like to live in a country where you are held for the third grade? So they are drawn to the Russian-speaking segment, maybe they will be able to convince some of their former compatriots of their success and distract themselves from the oppressive feeling of their own inferiority.

            Yes, that's right. It's a shame for this little man, but absolutely true.

        Donbass is a territory temporarily occupied by Ukraine. Ukraine is a temporarily occupied territory of Russia. The only way.
        Interestingly, Israel - mainly consists of the temporarily occupied territories of the Arab peoples.

    - You have to figure it out: to drag a bunch of planes to the very border of Turkey so that the Turks would simply shoot them with mortars ...
