New Air Base to Lease in Syria

New Air Base to Lease in Syria 7 November, 2019

Russia is reportedly planning to lease a new military airbase in Qamishli city, north-eastern Syria. Syrian Human Rights Observatory has published developments on lease negotiations between Moscow and Damascus.

“Washington can deploy missiles on the territory of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and other countries in the region. The presence of air defence and missile-defence systems in Qamishli will allow Russia to intercept the US missiles long before they reach Russia's territory,” uawire wrote, citing Avia.Pro report.

The Syrian Khmeimim Air Base, located in the southeast of Latakia, is now in the service of Russian forces.
