Russian Base in Syria

Russia is building a military base in Syrian , according to American intelligence officials, in the clearest indication yet of deepening Russian support for the embattled regime of Bashar al-Assad.

The anonymous officials say Russia has set up an air traffic control tower and transported prefabricated housing units for up to 1,000 personnel in Latakia.

Russia has also requested the rights to fly over neighbouring countries with military cargo aircraft during September.
