MOSCOW - A cargo ship operated by the Russian Navy transited Turkey's Bosphorus strait en route to Syria loaded with ambulances, a Reuters news agency reporter saw.
 
Syria reported its first case of coronavirus on Sunday after weeks of rejecting opposition allegations the disease had already reached a country with a wrecked health system and thousands of Iranian-backed militias and Shia pilgrims.
