Several Russian beach assault ships deployed in the Eastern Mediterranean are on standby to evacuate Russian nationals from Syria.

Commodore Alexei Komarov spoke about this on a port call to Haifa Wednesday.

The bomb that killed 13 and injured 70 people in Damascus Tuesday went off a stone’s throw from the Russian Embassy.

On Monday, a Damascus terror attack killed 10 people.
