An emergency occurred at the air base of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria

It became known about the emergency at the air base of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria.

The Russian military air base in Syria was unsuitable for use by the Russian air forces. Information about this appeared after the publication of satellite images, on which you can see that the military object was damaged due to partial flooding, as a result of which it was abandoned for a long time.

At the moment, you can see only the residual consequences of the flooding of the Russian military air base in the Syrian city of Kamyshli, and. Considering the fact that a military transport aircraft of the Russian aerospace forces has already landed here, the airfield has become serviceable, however, according to the “Obretix” Twitter account, the airfield has recently begun to be used.

“An An-72 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces at the Kamyshli airport today, meanwhile, the Russian military camp was flooded and abandoned”- reports "Obretix".

According to monitoring resources, the Russian military airbase in the city of Kamyshli really has not been used for a very long time, although there have been no official applications to this effect from the Russian Ministry of Defense.

It should be clarified that one of the largest military airfields in Syria is used by the Russian military as a transshipment base - combat aircraft are not deployed here, however, there are military transport aircraft and attack helicopters, which are obviously used to provide protection for the military airfield itself, and to organize patrols in eastern and northeastern Syria.

At the moment, it remains unknown whether the military airfield infrastructure suffered as a result of flooding or if the situation only led to the fact that the air base could not be used safely.
