JERUSALEM, Israel -- Russian President Vladimir Putin is not only providing "concrete military assistance" to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces, he's also providing political backing.

"The Russians support the Syrian army by supplying weapons and also provide political backing," Israel's Channel 2 television military affairs correspondent Roni Daniel said on Monday evening. "It is now revealed they also provided concrete military assistance that affects the Syrian campaign."

Daniel said Russian UAVs are giving Assad "a significant advantage" over rebel forces.

"The Russians are operating a complete system of unmanned aircraft running in Syrian airspace, gathering intelligence on rebel forces and providing it to Assad's forces, giving them a significant advantage," Daniel said.
