Russia readies itself for 'huge offensive' on Aleppo to save Assad say intelligence reports

Russia will undertake a full-scale military attack on the city of Aleppo as Vladimir Putin seeks to exploit a political lull in Washington just before the US election to try to score victory for his ally Bashar al Assad, it has been reported.

...There are said to be 275,000 men, women and children who are still living in the rebel enclave in Aleppo.

The Admiral Kuznetsov is expected to arrive off the Syrian coast between Wednesday (2 November) and Friday (4 November) accompanied by seven escort ships, including a missile-firing battle cruiser and two destroyers.

...Three Russian attack submarines are also thought to be heading towards the area, armed with cruise missiles.

Russia ‘on brink’ of major attack with ‘significant consequences’ THIS WEEK

Russia’s leader is believed to be “on the brink” of unleashing his military firepower on the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo while the US is distracted with the election.

Three submarines armed with cruise missiles have reportedly joined the massive naval force heading to within striking distance of the war-torn city.

The diesel-powered Kilo-class subs joined Moscow’s only aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean to boost the firepower of president Assad’s government forces.

Along with seven escort ships – including two destroyers and missile-firing battle cruisers – the Admiral Kuznetsov is expected the arrive off the Syrian coast this week.

There are fears the sinister navy fleet could be used in a final assault on the city within days – putting the lives of 275,000 men, women and children in danger.

A western intelligence source told the Times: “We think that the Russians are on the brink of a major military assault on Aleppo.

“There could be significant humanitarian consequences.”

Michael Clarke, former director general of the Royal United Services Institute, a London-based think-tank, suggested there could be a genocide-level event.
