Palmyra wounded in the battles for Aleppo

Palmyra wounded in the battles for Aleppo



The long-awaited news of the complete liberation of Aleppo from militants comes from Syria. In the evening of December 12, the SAR army took control of the latest reinforcement of terrorists - the quarter of Firdous. On the streets of the city - jubilation. People took to the streets with Syrian flags and portraits of President Bashar Al-Assad. Rejoice for Aleppo and residents of other cities.

These people have the moral right to joy. - They suffered too much from the power of the so-called "opposition". Praised "freedom fighters" turned out to be torturers of civilianswho were covered by women and children as a shield, refused to let people out of the combat zone. If someone tried to get out of the areas seized by the bandits, the “oppositionists” fired at the escape route. In addition, they bombarded those areas of Aleppo, which were under the control of the Syrian authorities, from which almost every day there were dead and wounded.

Yes, the people of Aleppo deserved their holiday. But he was overshadowed by more than tragic news from another part of Syria. - from the province of Homs. Of those places that are known to us, former Soviet students, on the cover of the textbook stories. Alas, a photo with a Roman arch, adorned the "History of the Ancient World", will remain in memory, since the arch itself is no longer there ...

Last week, the gangs (banned in the Russian Federation) of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) terrorist organization launched an attack on ancient Palmyra. The climax came on Saturday, December 10th. Then began to receive Western media reports that Palmyra is already in the hands of ISIS. True, their joy was premature - in the evening with the help of Russian aviation the Syrian army managed to push the enemy 10 kilometers from the city. About 300 terrorists were destroyed.

But the gloomy end came the next day, December 12 ... The Islamists quickly recovered from the heavy blows and, using the self-explosions of suicide bombers, still captured the holy city.

In favor of the inhumans played the fact that the best troops of the Syrian army are involved in the liberation of Aleppo. In the conditions of the hardest urban battles in the “northern capital” of Syria, this was justified, but it does not negate the fact that Palmyra was defended by far from the most efficient soldiers. Basically, it was inexperienced militia.

It is characteristic that a fierce attack on this paradise in the desert was carried out almost simultaneously with the diplomatic battles for Syria in the international arena.

As we remember, December 5 - by the way, on the very day that two Russian nurses died in Aleppo and a pediatrician was seriously injured - a deliberately impassive draft resolution was submitted to the UN Security Council, which contained yet another unilateral "truce." Russia expected this project to be expected and naturally. China joined her. This caused a gnashing of teeth by Western politicians.

A few days later, on December 9, Canada submitted a draft anti-Russian and anti-Syrian resolution to the UN General Assembly meeting. Unfortunately, the veto right does not work there (but the resolutions, unlike those adopted by the UN Security Council, are only of an advisory nature). There were only 13 courageous countries that did not support this resolution. 36 states abstained from voting. And 122 of the member state of the GA supported the document, in which, as always, the main responsibility for the events in Syria is assigned to Damascus, and not to the terrorists.

But The General Assembly resolution demands all belligerent parties to cease hostilities, unlock settlements and provide humanitarian corridors for civilians to exit.

It is clear that behind such, at first glance, quite humane formulations stood all the same requirement for Syria and Russia - to release the militants in Aleppo from the "boiler". However, since the demand applies to all parties to the conflict, then the countries that supported the resolution should condemn all the parties for their violation, not just one.

And on the same day, the debate in the General Assembly barely subsided, a serious attempt was made to capture Palmyra. Which was repulsed, but not for long.

It is clear that ISIS did not independently decide on such a serious action. It all looks like Russia's revenge for Aleppo. For the veto on the UN Security Council resolution. And because Russia in its time, in March of the current year, freed Palmyra from igilovskiy gangsters.

Only those who encouraged the nonhumans to attack ancient Palmyra do not seem to understand what they are destroying. And they destroy the most important open-air museum. Destroy the place where Western culture is closely intertwined with Eastern. They destroy the ancient city with someone else’s hands, where European archaeologists labored at the excavations. In this way, by slapping Syria and Russia, they beat all of humanity.

Today, Palmyra wounded. Her sacred stones are again painted with the blood of the martyrs. In less than a day from the time of the seizure, the terrorists already executed 8 prisoners of Syrian soldiers and massacred a family suspected of sympathy for the legitimate authorities. The bloody "stripping" continues.

And now Palmyra herself is in captivity, subjected to torture. But she suffers for a reason. With her torment, she secured a long-awaited and, of course, very important victory in Aleppo.

One thing is clear - no honest person can feel at ease until those who are worse than the ancient barbarians rule over the wounded Palmyra. And no matter what anyone says that this is “an insignificant part of the front”, the city should be liberated. Otherwise, we will live in a world where the balance is broken.

And Gergiev will still come with a symphony orchestra and play a new concert, even if this is now perceived by some detractors with a sneer. Because the history, art and moral victory - this is what will ensure the real victory.

    As long as the force rules the world, the claims of the peoples of Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Syria and other victims can only be gathered in volumes and hopes for a distant future justice, but they are unlikely to get any chances of damages when assessing the real situation.

        I am not against Mikhail Yuryevich, and even before this idea was described in the scriptures, I simply judge by the fact that the USSR and Russia have been and have been working for over 70 years to restore lost historical monuments and works of art inherited from our ancestors.
        Much of this has already been irretrievably lost and hope that the guilty will be punished, and the monuments of history and works of art can miraculously arise only from impotence, but it is unlikely that descendants will appreciate it.

      Remember Krylov's fable "The Pig under the Oak"? What is the point of turning to the mind of the "pig" and counting on understanding events.

        It makes sense to defend the ruins when there are more pressing problems (Aleppo) and there is no qualified reserve in the SAR troops. In this case, this is a purely tactical "success" of Daesh and has nothing to do with the strategy, but our specialists calculated the strategy and made the right step in its implementation.

            If no one will help the legitimate Syrian government, then a qualified reserve can appear only if former bandits, as well as emigrants of military age, join the SAA, take military courses and begin to defend their country together from Daesh and their accomplices .

            There is another option, but it involves a period when the children of the military SAA will come of age and undergo military training. Assad has no other internal reserves.

          The Meaning of Protecting Ruins When There Are More Urgent Issues (Aleppo)


          Dear "visitor", all means of reconnaissance (except for the field) are in our hands and it is not possible to see a column of militants with "Hammer-tachankas" heading almost to the rear of the SA, do you think? And what you called ruins is a city with living people who believed that their security was provided by the government army and the Russians. And now these people are cut off their heads, and the corpses are burned. Well, what "splashed" above "Kenneth" - so we are all practically "couch" and go to VO to DISCUSS and express our opinion about the events - we have the right.

            ---------------------------------

            The strategy lies in the fact that sacrificing small win big.
            I think that our specialists saw the direction of the bandits' movement and correctly assessed the situation, given that Palmyra is on a relative front line, and not in the rear of the SAA.
            Yes, the bandits again entered Palmyra, which is located in the middle of the desert and neither Damascus nor Aleppo poses a threat.
            It seems that now the bandits themselves fell into the trap and will try to get out of Palmyra, since now it is easier to cut off the ways of supplying them with food and ammunition with the forces that the SAA has.

            It was smooth on paper but stumbled on the ravines.
            I can drive a passenger car on a good road 369 km in 3 hours, but IWT columns are not 100-140 km / h for you - this is in reality, without opposing the enemy, on a good road for at least 2 days. At the same time, another 1-2 days will need to be allocated for the organization of the march and its preparation. Thus, we already get 4 days in ideal conditions.

      What a pretentious writing style! As much as a tear rolled down ... Especially, coupled with the agitprom of the model of Soviet propaganda - "the Syrian army managed to push the enemy back 10 kilometers from the city. About 300 terrorists were destroyed." Wow! They were "destroyed" - and they returned. And the corpses went to count - 300. Only it seems to me that the numbers are too high. And there was no organized resistance, they didn't even finish the food, and Chase was abandoned .. It smells of mothballs from the style of the Pravda newspaper editorial of the 70s

    Wounded Palmyra showed the other side of the coin, in the event of a transfer of forces from one of the fronts, the rest are not able to fight, now they will send troops to these ruins, and the opposition will again capture Aleppo, and then we will see the real joy of the local population, it’s strange enough to talk about shelling from parties of the gangs, and at the same time not to mention the bombardment from the air and heavy artillery in residential areas of the city. Too author softly spreads. Tell me, what will happen if, let’s say, the Ishilovites agree with the Americans on a quiet world, throw 40000 fighters under the palm, and at the same moment the opposition will move to Allepo with a united front, what then?
    You would immediately say the war is over and we won, only we didn’t fight seriously with the Ishilovites, we tried to send the elite units that were defeated there, they like to tell us if it’s all cowardly Arabs who are fleeing.

          There is no civil war in Syria. External aggression is being waged against Syria, only by someone else's hands. Not direct aggression, but a new type of war. The city has been destroyed, but the "opposition" militants are to blame for this, acting as the troops of the aggressors.

        You don’t remember when the Americans announced an attack on cancer, ours decided to poke a fuss and sent desert falcons and other formations and how it all ended ...

          The Desert Falcons is a Syrian unit made up of veteran volunteers rather than recruits.

      Still worse. There are so many different people, factions, detachments, parties, tribes about very different goals. But who would explain that Russia forgot there. Actually what. Fleet base or Qatari gas pipeline.

        First of all, it's about our role in the world. We will pursue an independent policy, or we will let the States manage even in our beds.

          Once again, what do you think Russia needs there. Specifically. I see only the benefits to Gazprom and the base. Well, another test and a demonstration of weapons.

          Well, go and fight yourself, why should our military perish in faraway Africa. This war will last for many years and everyone feels that it will end like Afghanistan. How much are we already there, and how many more will we be?

            I do not know what does Africa have to do with it. And I would love to go to Syria if they announced the recruitment of all comers, regardless of their level of training.

            Your military is not fighting there. In the "best" case, they are preparing to overthrow the current government in our country. And like Afghan it will end only if one more "spotted" comes to power.

      Quote 231185 - "... only with the ISIS members we have not yet fought on a serious basis, we tried to send elite units that were defeated there, they like to tell us if something happens, these are all cowardly Arabs, if anything happens ..."

      And when you say "we haven't fought yet" who do you mean?

      only with the Ishilovites we have not yet fought seriously,.

      And who then do you think the Syrians and we recaptured Palmyra for the first time, isn’t this ISIS itself?
      Quote: 231185
      about a quiet world, they will throw 40000 fighters under the palmyra and at the same moment the opposition will move to Allepo as a united front, what then?

      You are just a strategist, but for some reason, from the side of the terrorists, you somehow judge.

    In Aleppo, the Kurds "felled" the territory east of their Sheikh Maqsood: Bustan al Pasha, Sheikh Khader and Hellok districts. What does it mean? Expansion, contract, or took their own?

    Of those places that we, former Soviet schoolchildren, know about the cover of a history textbook.

    By the way, it is from the photograph of the arch that I remember the history textbook. And yet, simple pencils with a golden inscription "Syria" in Latin.

    So as not to shout Urya-grunts about all-mutters, etc. etc.
    But after the shameful surrender of Palmyra, questions arise, where did our and Syrian intelligence look?
    Thousands of militants are moving under their nose (not always on foot, but on armored vehicles and pickups) and in just 3 days they take a city for which the Syrians, with the support of the air forces, have been fighting for a month.
    What, soldiers are fighting there, that, out of fear of the barmalei, they threw weapons and equipment, (judging by media reports), the brigade can be armed.
    If this happens, then in addition to the supply of weapons and air support, we will also fight on the ground.

      Well, not you, but we most likely. It would be interesting to hear from the brow with such an avatar, but how are things with the amers and their coalition? And a clear analysis about how from Palmyra you can turn the tide of the war and defeat Assad?

    We were not convinced at all that it was just that we missed something ... What doubts can there be that ours and the airwaves are being watched and examined by drones? ... And so ... after that they could not know about the gatherings of this gang ?? They made a poorly protected bait, promoted as a victory of civilization over dark forces and scented gas from wells, and they threw it to the militants, and they swallowed it! Now they have become smaller in Aleppo or somewhere else ... The main thing is to hold them in this stone bag, and then blow up on the carpet bomber and all 4000 hot heads at once and bury them in catacombs from the houses that were destroyed and empty without owners. Gambit!

      Blinked, didn’t blink, passed, didn’t surrender, but it was planned ... We don’t have all the information to throw it on the fan in one direction or another. As the holder of the medal for the liberation of Palmyra told me in a personal conversation, there is no need to jump legs, screech and bulge eyes - everything will be reduced to the fact that after a winter trip he will have another medal on his chest for re-taking this very Palmyra. The Syrians are fighting poorly, they do not want to fight at all very, very many. Peasants who plow the ground with hoes are generally indifferent to power, if it does not touch them - Assad this, An-nasra, hrenigil - no difference. But our Syrian soldiers in the attack burst into the air had to lift. For the professionals have become many times less due to losses, and the young people who came in the form of replenishment, to put it mildly, are uneducated and poorly motivated. The quality of human material has sharply decreased. And they try to protect our soldiers. Therefore, our PMCs suffer serious losses (they are not particularly saved).
      And, I remind you, Syria is not the millionth Chechnya. This is a slightly larger and very slightly more inaccessible object for using force in the austerity mode of our own fighters. Well done raids and hatreds did not end well for any army in the world. Therefore, be patient. And if not at all in patience - just be typed, and sing a sad song.
