(Before It's News)

DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 26, 2016, 3:16 PM (IDT)

Russian warships heading for Syria were apparently refused refueling permission at the Spain’s North African port of Ceuta Wednesday after the UK raised concerns. Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesperson said that the British government will continue to monitor the situation.

Nato expressed concern that the ships could be used to help bomb civilians in Aleppo, but said the final decision on resupply rested with Spain.

The Kuznetsov battle group has been sailing for the past week from Russia via the English Channel to the Mediterranean. It was expected to pass through the Strait of Gibraltar on Wednesday and take on fuel and supplies at Ceuta.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
