Israeli institute publishes satellite images of Russia army in Syria

An Israeli space institute publishes satellite images of Russian military deployments in Syria.

The images show dozens of planes and surface-to-air missile batteries at the coastal army base of Latakia, where Russia has centered its military presence in Syria.

Tal Inbar, the head of the space research center at the Fisher Institute, says that the images show more than 30 warplanes parked at Latakia air base, Ynet reports.

“The photos show that the Russians have set up and started operating the S-400 anti-missile systems, deployed alongside the Pantsir SA-22, which has also been purchased by Iran, to protect them from attack,” Inbar says.

The images will be published in full at the 11th Ilan Ramon International Space Conference, which starts tomorrow in Herzliya.
