Russia has started building a military camp west of Hama which will serve as a base for about 500 Russian troops, according to media sources.

The troops are to oversee three or four monitoring centers set to monitor the agreed de-escalation zones deal in Hama northern countryside in order to separate the areas controlled by Assad regime from those controlled by opposition fighters, the sources said.

The Russian website has Rusvesna.su published photos of troops erecting tenets and setting up a camp. The website said that the new camp will be used as base for a number of Russian troops and military police, which were deployed there to monitor the “de-escalation zones” deal.

This comes contrary to Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s remarks when he said that his country aims to reduce its military presence in Syria.
