Turkish media reported that at least 2 submarines of the Turkish Navy are spotted near the missile cruiser “Moskva” that covers the Russian air base in Latakia, says Interfax.

On November 24 a bomber Su-24 that was taking part in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria was attacked by the Turkish Air Force. The pilots managed to eject, but the pilot was killed by combatants while being in the air. The navigator was rescued by Syrian special forces.

Now all air operations are carried out under cover of fighters, also S-400 were deployed in Syria. The cruiser “Moskva” (“Moscow” – RRT) has been relocated from the eastern Mediterranean. Now it provides air defense for the base “Hmeymim”.
