Pentagon: Russia building forward air base in Syria

“The Pentagon acknowledged Monday that the Russian military is building a forward air base in Syria, a move that could complicate U.S. and coalition effort to mount daily airstrikes against Islamic State militants. ‘We have seen indications in recent days that Russia has moved people and things into the area around Latakia and the air base there that suggest it intends to establish some sort of forward air operating base,’ Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters.”
