Hundreds of Russian Marines Are Heading to Syria
Three Russian landing ships will arrive in Syria soon to deliver supplies.
Three large Russian landing ships carrying hundreds of marines will soon visit the port of Tartus in war-torn Syria, the Russian military says.
The ships, each with up to 120 marines on board, will spend a few days in the port, the general staff source said.
They will take on fresh supplies of food and water. Russia has a small naval maintenance facility at Tartus.
