About 300 Russian military were sent to Syria to strengthen posts

About 300 Russian troops were sent to the Syrian province of Haseke to strengthen observation posts jointly with government forces. This was announced by the senior of the joint Russian-Syrian observation post, Major Dmitry Suntsov, RIA Novosti reports.

As Suntsov explained, the main task of the military is to help de-escalate the conflict in the region. “Our servicemen are monitoring the observance of the ceasefire, and also provide all kinds of assistance to the local population,” he said.

Last December, the Russian army sent reinforcements to the key city of Ain Issa in the Syrian province of Raqqa. This happened against the background of more frequent attacks by pro-Turkish militants on the positions of the Syrians in the area.

The Syrian civil war began in March 2011. The main participants in the conflict are government forces supporting President Bashar al-Assad, the so-called moderate opposition and Islamist groups. The opposition is supported by Turkey, Russia is helping the Assad government.
