Satellite images reveal Russia deployment Iskander missile system in Syria

The Israel-based Image Satellite International group released new satellite images from the Russian Hmeimim Airbase in southwest Latakia this week.

The ISI satellite images showed the deployment of the Russian Iskander (SS-26) missile system to the Hmeimim Airbase near the coastal city of Jableh.

While the satellite images reveal the presence of the Iskander system at the Hmeimim Airbase, it is not clear when the Russians actually deployed it to Syria.

A Syrian military source in Damascus speaking on the condition of anonymity told Al-Masdar this morning that the deployment of the Iskander missile system likely coincides with the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statements on the Idlib Governorate.
