Another Russian naval exercise seals eastern Mediterranean

The eastern Mediterranean off the Syrian coast and its air space were again placed off limits on Saturday to sea and air traffic for the staging of a Russian naval exercise.  The Russian military announcement did not specify the length of the exercise.  Last week Moscow claimed US spy planes had flown within 30km of Russia’s Kheimim Air Base in Latakia and its Tartus sea base.

    The U.S. should also “seal the East Med for exercise”. Forbid russian, iranian, syrian, and turkish ships or planes, for a week or two. Maybe do this “exercise” once a month.
