According to unknown ‘reliable source’ of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), 3,000 Russian soldiers have been placed at a base in the south-eastern suburbs of the village of Al-Safir, in the area of Aleppo.
Three thousand Russian soldiers were sent in the area of Aleppo, and currently they are placed at a base in the south-eastern suburbs of the village of Al-Safir, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), based in London, stated on September 21, citing a ‘reliable source’.
According to the SOHR, Russian troops were arriving to the base in As-Safir during the last four weeks. At the same time, according to the title of the SOHR article, fighters, arrived to the base, are Russian soldiers, but in the text they are already called as militia.
There is no confirmation of this information, except the ‘reliable source’. Representatives of many different countries: Iraq, Lebanon and Iran, fight as a part of Syrian government troops in the area of Aleppo. It is possible that volunteer military units of these countries could be sent to the base in As-Safir.
Russian troops are officially placed only in the north-west of Aleppo near the Castello Highway.
