The Syrian army, Hezbollah and Liwaa Al-Quds, supported by Russian warplanes, launched an attack on Jaish al-Fatah militants in the Old Ramouseh Neighborhood of Aleppo city. Following an intense firefight, the pro-government forces took control of the Ramouseh Bakery. If the Old Ramouseh Neighborhood is secured, the Sheikh Sa’eed Neighborhood will become the next target of the loyalists.

Russian heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser “Admiral Kuznetsov” will be deployed in the composition of a group of Russian ships in the eastern Mediterranean, Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting of the military department on September 21. Currently, the Russian naval group in the area includes not less than six warships and three or four support vessels. The group’s capabilities will be increased with a carrier strike group led by Admiral Kuznetsov.

The Russian Defense Ministry also plans to test new weapons in Syria. Admiral Kuznetsov ‘s air grouping is going to use Kh-38 missiles and a new guidance system SVP-24 for unguided bombs in a combat situation. It’s reported that the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy aircraft cruiser will carry the Su-33 and the MiG-29K/KUB fighter jets, as well as with the Ka-52K Katran helicopters on its board.Syrian War Report – September 22, 2016: Russia to Test Modern Weapon Systems in Syria

Reports have been appearing in various pro-government media outlets since September 20 that some Russian warships, deployed in Syria’s coastal waters, hit with missiles a foreign-led military operations room near Aleppo city, killing 30 Israeli, US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers.

The military operations room was allegedly located in the western part of Aleppo province in the middle of Sam’an mountain. It was set up by foreign intelligence services in order to coordinate operations of various militant group against the Syrian government forces in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.

Most of the pro-government media outlets cites the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency as a main source of the information.

AlMasdarNews and the Iranian Fars News Agency are among the sources that had disseminated the info.

While there are no doubts that various ‘opposition’ and terrorist groups in Syria are trained, supplied and managed by foreign intelligence services, the pro-government sources have not provided video or photo evidences in order to confirm this report. The Russian Ministry of Defense has not commented on the issue.
