MOSCOW. July 27 (Interfax) -" Any attempt to attack the Russian naval supplies and maintenance facility at the Syrian port of Tartus will be rebuffed immediately, a source in the Russian General Staff told Interfax-AVN on Friday.
"If the armed Syrian opposition ventures to implement their threat and to attack the Russian naval supplies and maintenance facility, Russia has ample capabilities in the region now to provide an adequate response. We won't recommend hotheads in the Syrian opposition doing that," he said.
"The Syrian side, too, has taken corresponding measures to enhance the naval supplies and maintenance base's protection and defense," he said."
