Russian Navy ships readying for rocket fire off the coast of Syria
Moscow. 11th of March. INTERFAX.RU – Russian Navy ships on Monday may launch missiles from the water area of the eastern Mediterranean near the coast of Syria. This follows from the international notification for aviation personnel (NOTAM) and navigational warning for seafarers.
The notification NOTAM, which gives the coordinates of the closed area, refers to the conduct of “test missile launches.”
As follows from the reports, launches from Russian ships may be carried out between 8:00 and 18:00 Moscow time at the sea border of Syria in the international waters of the Mediterranean.
