Russia Ready to Confront US Plan B in Syria
Russian media reported that the country's defense ministry has devised a preemptive plan to be implemented if the US withdraws from talks with Moscow on Syria and opts for its Plan B.
Izvestia newspaper quoted a high-ranking military source as saying that the plan includes military and political measures. The source didn’t reveal the details of the Russian plan.
Also, Franz Klintsevich, the deputy head of the Unity group in the State Duma, revealed that "if needed, we can highly increase our military support for the Syrian armed forces".
Earlier this week, Izvestia had also reported that the Russian Ministry of Defense has transferred additional Su-24 and Su-34 tactical bombers to Khmeimim, its airbase in Syria.
It quoted a source as saying that the Su-25 attack bombers will also be deployed in response to the US announcement that it will turn to 'Plan B' in Syria. The US plans to increase the number of combat missions to Syria, transfer special forces to the region and start new arms deliveries to the so-called moderate opposition.
"If necessary, Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) will have to strengthen its command within the next 2-3 days. The Su-25 attack bombers have been designated for transfer to Khmeimim Air Base, the troops have already been selected and are prepared for deployment; the crews are on standby, waiting for command," Izvestia's source said.
Also, Russia’s Defense Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that a battery of Russian S-300 air defense missile launchers has been transported to Syria. Its sole purpose is to defend a Russian naval base and warships, the ministry added.
The information about the S-300’s deployment was confirmed by ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov.
“Indeed, the Syrian Arab Republic received an S-300 anti-aircraft missile system. This system is designed to ensure the safety of the naval base in [Syrian city of] Tartus and ships located in the coastal area [in Syria]…” he told the media.
Konashenkov said it is unclear why the deployment of the missile system has created such a fuss in the West.
“The S-300 is a purely defensive system and poses no threat,” he said.
He recalled that before the deployment of S-300, Russia had delivered Fort air defense missile systems to Syria.

Syrian army "Reduces" strikes on terrorist-held Aleppo
Battle for Aleppo. 06.10.2016 - Colonel Cassad
By October 6 Common assault pattern is not changed too much. CAA and "Liwa al-Quds," with the support of the Russian aviation continued to slowly bite off pieces of Aleppo from the rebels.
Over the past 2 days the army achieved some tactical successes:
1. stripped area to the south-east and east of Al-Shakeyf zone, occupied a considerable part of Avidzha quarter and part of the territory to the south-east of Al-Kindi hospital. Militants providing resistance slowly moving away to urban neighborhoods.
2. To the north of the citadel of Aleppo, the CAA was able to take part of the quarter Bastan-Basha, and as part of the industrial development (including power and building water-company) in the area of Sheikh Khader quarter (growth promotion are considered by several dozens of buildings in the day).
3. In the south, much success in the area of neighborhoods of Sheikh Said and Al-Ameria was not the militants so far kept the front and prevent further advancement of the CAA.
4. On the outer ring of the city environment of continued fighting in the ruins of the building in 1070 and quarries to the east of Khan Tuman.
Against the background of the ongoing assault and bombing Syrian command continues to offer the rebels to cease their resistance and in some way to get away from Aleppo, in order not to multiply the number of casualties or damage. Nevertheless, until tendnetsy to surrender insurgents do not show, still hoping that diplomatic pressure from the West and Russia will force Syria to stop the assault. Also there is a hope that the unlocking kick from outside will still take place and facilitate the provision of militants in the city.
To the north of Aleppo, with the support of Turkey, CCA was able to move forward in the area of Aktarina and take a large part of this settlement, which creates a threat to the environment of the Caliphate troops Dabika area, for which the SSA will try to connect with the forces acting in the Marais district (and where noted the US Special Forces presence ). One would expect that with the growth of the threat to the promotion of the PAS Mare Caliphate can begin the withdrawal of troops from the boiler to a potential Al-Bab, though not rule out the possibility that in the plans of the "black" to provide long-term resistance in the area Dabika to win 1-2 months to prepare defense in al-Bab district. In general, events are developing as slowly as at Aleppo.
It should also be noted that over the past few days, "green" as a result of the fighting with the Kurds, the Caliphate, and as a result of faulty strokes Turkish aviation lost more than 140 people killed.
