DEBKAfile: Russian giant military transport lands in Syria

A giant Russian military transport landed in Latakia Tuesday carrying 60 tons of “humanitarian aid to Syria,” DEBKAfile reports. The nature of this cargo is unknown, but it is likely to be the opposite of humanitarian, given Moscow’s expanding military assistance to Bashar Assad and intervention in the Syrian civil war. Tuesday, Moscow termed its dispatch of S-300 anti-air missiles to Assad “a stabilizing factor” for dissuading “hotheads” from entering the conflict.
