Russia gives Iran access to Syria’s Hmeimim Air Base in rare move

BEIRUT, LEBANON – In a rare move, the Russian Federation gave Iran access to Syria’s Hmeimim Airbase in the western part of the country, a flight tracking app revealed this week.

According to the reports, a Syrian IL-76 cargo aircraft was tracked flying from Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport to the Hmeimim Airbase near the coastal city of Jableh in Syria’s Latakia Governorate.

The plane, which mostly travels from Tehran to Damascus, is under the watchful eye of the Israeli military, who has on several occasions attacked the cargo unloaded from the aircraft.

“Israel, with varying success, nevertheless destroyed several military facilities of the Iranian military forces on the territory of Syria and damaged the infrastructure of a number of military bases in order to prevent Iranian aircraft with weapons from landing here; however, Russia provided the Iranian military with the opportunity to use its military airfield in the province of Latakia, thereby challenging Netanyahu, who promised to strike at the Iranian military at any time,” the Russian publication Avia.Pro reported.

“By allowing Iran to use the Khmeimim (var. Hmeimim) airbase, Russia challenged Netanyahu, literally pointing out that just one attempt to attack the Russian military airbase in Syria, regardless of the circumstances, would lead not only to the destruction of Israeli aircraft, but also to strike in Israel itself,” an Avia.Pro expert said.

Most recently, Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett has vowed to intensify strikes against the Iranian forces in Syria, as Israeli seeks to expel the Islamic Republic from the Arab Republic.

    • Jeph, you mean they’ve allowed Israel to shoot a few rockets under the pretext of self defense so they can train and test the Syrian air defense system that they’ve sold ?

    • Shoot down “Israeli” planes, and the Zionists will cry about “another Shoah” and how more people need to protect them from “new Hitler.”. They will also use this to justify returning censorship and silencing of dissent to world war levels, making it much harder to have RT, Sputnik, etc. wake people up. The threats are not hollow. The risk of ending up like “old Hitler” is real, so acting on the threats is just more calculated than you think.

  1. Remember just a few years ago all the Russian and Israeli hasbara writers aka Trumptards were dismissive of the cooperation between Tehran and Kremlin on tightening the leash around the neck of Israel, saying that the Russians who live in Israel are an important part of Putin’s foreign policy relations with Israel …. lol.

    When Hamedan airbase was used by the Russian Air Force to topple the US and Israel in Syria, it was obvious that Russia who was encouraged by non other than the late General Soleimani to come to Syria and perform its air campaigns, would reciprocate.
    These same hasbara writers are even more dismissive of a China Iran cooperation in case of a US/Israel/UK/Saudi Arabian attack.

  2. Zionist Israel turned out to be the, ‘Cancer’ of the Middle East, that has spread, with their attack on the “USS LIBERTY”, in 1967, to the installation, of ‘Controlled Demolition Explosives’, into the WTC. Towers, that ‘Pulled Down’ those Structures, on 9/11/2001! With this Bio-Weapon, COVID-19 release, there is a Pandemic! The root of all this is the creation of Zionist Israel!
