Russian Millitary on Alert After Israeli Airstrike
Tens of thousands of Russian soldiers have been mobilized in the most ambitious check alert since the fall of the Soviet Union. A check alert is a mobilization designed to test the readiness of units.
80,000 soldiers, a thousand tanks, 130 aircraft, and 70 ships are involved in the mobilization.
This comes in response to a suspected Israeli airstrike destroyed advanced Russian milliles recently delivered to Syria.
