Russian marine major killed in combat in Syria: agencies

CNN reports that the Syrian government has relocated the majority of its combat planes to protect them from potential USA strikes.

Russian Federation said it would help Syria beef up its defenses in the wake of the US cruise missile strike, and many see this as a sign they are following through.

Most of Syria's operational fixed wing military aircraft have been moved to the base, according to the official.

The US missile-strike came in response to a sarin nerve gas attack Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched from Sharat air base, killing approximately 70 civilians. The Russians have reportedly stationed advanced anti-aircraft missile systems at the base.

Better understanding the mole rat's energy switchover will be key to any hope of somehow using it to help humans. This suffocating experience would kill a mouse-a mammal of similar size, albeit with significantly more hair.

"There is a clear sense of paranoia", a senior defense official told Fox News about the movement of large numbers of Syrian aircraft after the strike.

But the objective of our retaliatory strike wasn't to deter Syrian air missions. Despite rising tensions with Russian Federation, the United States remains committed to preventing further chemical attacks by the Syrian government.

All this is just another reminder that the jackpot victor of America's token missile attack on Syria's Shayrat Air Base was Bashar al Assad. No one, with the possible exception of Assad and his Russian partners, knows the answer.

The sources noted that the planes were transferred earlier this month, shortly after an American attack on an air force base from which the planes that implemented the Idlib chemical attack took off. After all, Russian Federation doesn't want a military confrontation with the Trump administration, and it can not be confident that Trump won't respond to another chemical attack by going after Assad's planes wherever they are housed.
