The United States of America has identified 22 targets of paramount importance on the territory of Syria. The Turkish newspaper Yeni Şafak reports, referring to the expert on international relations of Syria Zakariya Molakhavchi.
Among the potential targets are targets that are located in the region of Homs province, as well as in the area of the Russian Navy in Tartus. There are Russian servicemen there.
The US may bomb the area of Homs, Damascus, Tartus, Hama, El-Hasaka, Deir-ez-Zor and Raqqa. The United States, Great Britain, France and Israel agreed among themselves that military aerodromes should also be subjected to bombing.
According to Molokhavchi, Americans may attack Syria’s regions where there are problems between Kurdish forces and Syrian government forces, as well as Shiite militiamen.
According to the expert, any destruction of the systems of Syrian air defense will shift the balance of power. At the same time, he noted that the Pentagon took into account that Russia has increased the level of combat readiness of its forces at the airbase of Khmeimim and other military facilities in Syria.
According to Stars and Stripes, the official newspaper of the US Department of Defense, a Navy group headed by aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman is heading to Syria via the Mediterranean coast.
