Russian Warship Heads to Syria.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Media reports said that the Russian warship, BSF Saratov, has sailed through the Bosphorus strait and Dardanelles in the Black Sea and entered the Mediterranean sea en route to Syria.

According to Syria al-Aan, the Turkish websites have released some photos of the warship sailing through the Bosphorus strait.

They reported that Saratov has left Novorossiysk port in the Black sea towards Tartous port in Syria.

They also claimed that the warship is carrying a big cargo which has been covered.

This is the sixth voyage of Saratov warship in the current year.

Russian warships and naval vessels, often two at a time, have been seen passing through the Straits en route to Syria from Russia's northern Black Sea ports with increasing frequency this year.

Most of the military supplies, weapons, ammunition, and equipment that Russia supplies to the Syrian government are shipped from ports on the Black Sea, primarily Sevastopol and Sochi, through the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles, to the two Syrian ports, Tartous and Latakia.
