A fresh video evidence from the Syrian northern province of Latakia indicates that Russia has likely increased its air grouping operating in the Arab country. The video enеitled “Syria: Army relaunches offensive against militias in Latakia” and posted by RUPTLY on September 24, 2016 shows the Su-25SM attack aircraft supporеing an advance of the Syrian army against terrorists.
There have been no Russian Su-25SM aircraft in Syria since the patrial withdrawal of the Russian air grouping from the country. Now, they are operating in northern Latakia again. The Syrian Arab Air Force does not have such a warplane.
This means that Moscow has deployed SU-25SM strike-fighters in order to increase the air power involved in operations against terrorists. There is no information about numbers of Russian SU-25SM attack aircraft that are now operating from Russia’s Khmeimim Air Base.
