UNCONFIRMED reports about #Russia and #US moves in #Syria over 24 hours:
1.Rus media (mostly conservative/"patriotic") report Russia, America have been amassing militaries in & around Syria
2.#Russia delivered additional S400 systems,dozens of Su-30СМ & Su-35 mil aircrafts, ships, submarines, paratroopers, spetsnaz forces
3.#Russia also increased its naval group up to two dozens warships, including up to six subs-unprecedented concentration of RUS navy on a terrain. Frigates "Admiral Grigorovitch", "Admiral Essen" already entered Mediterranean; so did LLS "Orsk" & "Minsk"; escort «Pytlivyj».
4.#Russia/n reports claim #US & allies building up air forces at #Syria/n borders, including at surrounding airbases & bolsteting navy forces to strike #Syria from Mediterranean, #Turkey, #Jordan, #Cyprus, #Iraq.
5.#Russia/n sources claim #US uses #SkripalCase hype as a cover-up for its military build-up around #Syria to strike #Assad positions.Earlier, RUS MoD warned it would target any US mil that would launch strikes, US seems to have been undeterred by this,sees #Moscow as bluffing
6.#Russia/n LLS allegedly carry Rus special forces. MoD reportedly wants to make it clear a strike on #Syria would be seen as an act of open aggression on Russia & #Moscow's retaliation would inflict serious military & political damage for those launching attack.
7.If the unconfirmed reports prove to be true this is going insane. There's no real interest for #Russia, #US worth slipping into direct war over #Syria. However #Syria has long been not just about Syria but rules of the game on international arena, future world order.
8.P.S.All of this is coincidentally happening while #KSA's MBS is in #US & #Qatar's Al Thani in #Russia meeting w/ #Putin tomorrow.
9. Although the situation doesn't look much promising #Russia has long been bracing up for worst case scenarios, esp in recent weeks given recent position shifts in #US. See my latest @AlMonitor: al-monitor.com/pulse/original…
