The Nation, quoting CNN, quoting Janes :Russia preparing to station troops at 2 new sites in Syria
Russia may be preparing to station troops at two new sites in Syria as it continues its rapid military buildup in the conflict-ravaged nation, a research firm says.“Intelligence matters”? Or pure baloney, given an aura of authority, coming from Janes?
IHS Jane's said Tuesday that it had spotted two previously unreported sites in satellite imagery of western Syria where steps appear to be being taken to receive Russian forces.
The two new sites where IHS Jane's analysts (no name analysts) say Russian troops could go are the the Istamo weapons storage complex and the Al-Sanobar military complex, both north of the Latakia base.
"Military personnel would likely arrive at these two bases as part of the rapid expeditionary force buildup currently centered around Latakia," the (no name) analysts said.
Asked about the Jane's report at a regular news briefing Tuesday, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook declined to comment on "intelligence matters."
