Pentagon: "We continue the operation in the area of ​​Deir ez-Zora"

U.S. Central Command reports that aviation The "coalition" continued the so-called anti-terrorist operation in the Deir-ez-Zora region, where several days ago the aircraft of the same coalition "mistakenly" attacked the positions of the Syrian government army, "missing" past ISIS militants (banned in the Russian Federation). The command said that the incident with the "erroneous" airstrike "is being investigated."

According to the statements of the American side, seven oil tankers belonging to the Igilovites were destroyed by three air strikes in the Deir-ez-Zor area. In addition, the militants supply routes were damaged. The Pentagon does not provide any photo and video evidence.

Syria’s state news agency SANA reports a Syrian military plane shot down in the Deir ez-Zor area. Earlier from Syria there were reports that the plane crashed, but without mentioning the causes of the crash. SANA writes that the strike on the plane was struck at the moment when he was carrying out actions against ISIS terrorists.

After striking a strike by the American coalition on the positions of the SAR troops, the ISIL militants launched an offensive. Not less than a thousand terrorists infiltrated into Deir ez-Zor, raising the flag of a terrorist group in one of the districts of the city.

Pentagon: "We continue the operation in the area of ​​Deir ez-Zora"

Against this background, the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov, reports that, according to the Coordination Center for the Reconciliation of the Parties in Syria, the Americans do not have any contacts with the so-called "opposition." Although, in the agreements, the United States pledged to control the “moderate opposition” for its compliance with the conditions of the ceasefire regime and separation from terrorist groups.

RIA News cites the statement of Igor Konashenkov:
After a week of the entry into force of the agreement on the cessation of hostilities, it is obvious the complete absence of not only any influence, but also the contacts of the American side with the "moderate oppositionists" who are "on the ground" in Syria, and not in Western capitals. Moreover, instead of the “delimitation” of terrorists and “opposition” promised by the Americans, the militants use the cease-fire regime to lick their wounds, recuperate and prepare for the resumption of hostilities. All our appeals to the American side to provide us with contacts of “moderate oppositionists” or to influence them, lead to nothing. On the contrary, the number of attacks on the positions of Syrian troops and settlements by the militants is increasing.

When they bombed Yugoslavia, Iraq, the Americans loved to show it in real time. And then suddenly we "investigate". When they shot down an Iranian the passenger plane was also "investigated". How long did it take before the apology? Not to mention the destroyed wedding convoys.
    And not the topic. At the Minsk talks, Ukraine is represented by Kuchma. This is the one in which our passenger plane was shot down. I was in Crimea at that time. And I know not by hearsay that many lower-level fellow officers were crying. But what about Kuchma? . I didn’t apologize. So maybe better at the Minsk talks let Verka Serduchka represent Ukraine?

      They will not climb into Latakia. They fulfill local goals:
      survive the army with Hasake - said, done. Now the army went with Hasake.
      to solve the problem with DeZ - where there is a lot of oil, if the army is killed there, then DeZ will then triumphantly release the greenery, and this is a completely different alignment at the division.

      In DeZ there is no way to abandon heavy equipment, since all the supplies are parachute containers with a hollow and patros, as well as Mi-8 on platforms in the desert inside the defense perimeter with l / s.

      From the heights occupied by the Caliphate (even before the crisis with the bombardment of the 137 counter), the women are controlling the airbase with fire. Any IL will be fired at the approach, and then finished off on the runway. Planes go there only through those windows when it comes down to knock down the slopes and start fighting at high altitudes, but this is a maximum of hours and days. Blacks have from 1200 to 5000 bayonets and army team taking everything for counterattacks - they constantly receive strikes in weakened directions, resulting in a crisis (for example, the air defense base fell, for example, significantly narrowing the perimeter of defense)

      By the way, yesterday MiG was shot down with a Frunze graduate and a colonel claiming a military victory in the 82 war of the year. From ZSU over DeZ.

    Circus, and only ... How long are our going to play in the "truce" there?
    It was immediately clear what and how it would end.
    And this attack, this is not only support for IS, it is also a "test for lice", how ours will react to this, how Syria will react, swallow - it will be even trickier. That's all.
    Syria has a C300, to bring down an Israeli-US plane, and to the United Nations say that they are aggressors, evidence is already full.
    If the ceasefire continues, Syria will be divided in parts at best, but will not stop there in the long run.
    What Putin and Obama agreed on there, that immediately after this agreement such a carousel went, let the data be declassified, there we will see what and how.
    In general, our policy on this issue strains, we develop success, and half way, we go into a "truce" allowing the enemy to patch up his wounds, regroup and come up with new tactics. How long can you step on the same rake?
    Or is it not easy?

      They do not have C-300. Only beeches and shells.

      Yes, even from C-400 to the point - 0.

      DeZ is too far to hide behind even the C-300 / 400 from the territories controlled by the army.

      Plus, the Americans are pulling the Growler, which further complicates the work.

      The problem is that, for example, the 3 BMP and 3 Tanks destroyed in DeZ are irreplaceable (Zaherdin left about 15 combat-ready tanks). Any heavy equipment in DeZ simply cannot be delivered. The air base is under direct fire from dominant heights. Landing IL - burned at the approach or on the runway. Therefore, airplanes go there only through those windows when it comes out to engage both dominant skyscrapers in battle.

      The entire supply of DeZ goes - with parachute containers. Mi-8 to special sites inside the perimeter of defense.

      Therefore, every piece of heavy equipment is priceless. And no air defense can not be thrown there. This is reality. Break through the gut - more than 200 km. The campaign to Tabka was shorter, much slower (with rear oporniks) and ended in a collapse of the attackers under the flank attacks and martyrs.

        It seems to be talk that they were put there. But if not, this is of course a minus.

        The trouble is that, knowing all this situation, the Americans with their litter and beat, providing support for the IG and at the same time checking the reaction. What should they lose? They turned on a fool and everything is excusable to them. The same thing they do not care about diplomatic agreements.
        Therefore, you need to do something with this, for good they do not understand and will beat in the most painful place.
        Not here, so in the place where air defense is available, shoot down an Israeli or American aircraft and immediately sound the alarm about aggression to the UN, and provide data on losses due to this "coalition" ...
        You also need to unwind the current situation to the maximum,
        ~ 60 killed and 100 wounded, despite the fact that everything is worth its weight in gold.
        Of course, it is clear that in Syria they are afraid that if they bring down their plane or something like that, then the Americans can start a full-fledged invasion, but this will already be direct aggression against a sovereign state.
        In general, the situation is not simple, the Americans have made their move and will look at the reaction.

      It's not sad, but everything went to that. Success must be consolidated, but ours, as usual, step on the same rake. Military success, then instead of finishing off a fragmented enemy, we arrange a "truce", and this is an opportunity for the enemy to patch up wounds, regroup, prepare new tactics. Now, if something happens, will we have the opportunity to return the group to Syria? And even if it does, the enemy is already ready for it.

    And there is another opinion:
    "Immediately after American diplomacy achieved significant success, limiting the combat capabilities of the anti-terrorist alliance of Syria, Russia and other countries, American aviation developed the success of American diplomacy and very effectively and timely supported terrorists from the Islamic State created by the United States and banned in Russia against the army of the legitimate authorities. , causing significant damage to the latter and changing the situation in favor of the terrorists on the corresponding sector of the front.

    Thus, the United States once again clearly and convincingly showed that they are conducting a war against civilization on the side of the cannibals - and it would be extremely naive to expect Trump's possible victory (although the American establishment very clearly stated that this victory would in any case be declared the result of an attack by Russian hackers) is able to change this fundamental feature of them.

    Thus, confrontation with the United States is fundamental and, although the mental battlefield will be the main battlefield, aviation will retain some of its importance. Accordingly, in order to change the balance of forces in our favor, at least directly on the battlefield, we should try to delay the aggravation of the conflict, taking into account the mistakes made by the enemy.
