(Worthy News) - Russia is preparing to carry out a new round of strikes targeting Syria from a group of warships that recently arrived in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, two U.S. defense officials told Fox News on Wednesday.
It was not immediately clear when those strikes would start, but it could be very soon, according to the officials. “They’re poised…[to begin],” one official said citing recent intelligence reports.
The Russian armada is centered around a Soviet-era aircraft carrier and includes three destroyers capable of launching cruise missions, according to officials. [ Source ]
