Igilovtsy forced the SAR army to retreat to the east of Homs

29
18-I tank the Syrian army division continues the offensive in the eastern part of the province of Homs. At the same time, the Syrian units met with serious resistance from ISIS militants (* prohibited in the Russian Federation) in the vicinity of the settlement of Humaima. Together with the forces of the Republican Guard, the 18th Panzer Division began its advance towards the city occupied by the Ishilovites, but the militants responded with heavy fire, stopping the SAA attack. This is reported by the portal AMN.

Igilovtsy forced the SAR army to retreat to the east of Homs


According to official data, the CAA lost 7 soldiers under Humayma, more than 20 people were injured. It is known that igilovtsam managed to disable several tanks of the Syrian government army. In the end, the CAA was forced to retreat. According to other sources, losses on both sides are in the tens.

The aim of the Syrian government forces in this area is the liberation of Humayma with the subsequent exit to the administrative border of the province of Deir ez-Zor, a substantial part of which is under the occupation of the so-called "Islamic State" (*).

Recall that after the agreements on the creation of de-escalation zones in the UAR, the Syrian army was able to focus on battles exclusively with ISIS (*). At the same time, for the sake of justice, significant success is not yet achieved. The operation is clearly stalled. Moreover, igilovtsy still receive assistance of a military-technical nature - weapons and ammunition, which allows them not only to hold their positions in a number of areas, but also in some cases to launch a counteroffensive. Recall that the initiative of the Russian Federation to adopt a resolution on the complete prohibition of transactions related to accounts of structures affiliated with ISIS (*), still does not find universal support in the UN. At the same time, the UN states that they "support the fight against terrorism."

        The Syrian army has not existed for a long time, there are pro-government armed groups and field commanders. Official data on the killed can safely be multiplied by 2-3, to them we add the losses of various kinds of militias and mercenaries ... The meat grinder continues.

        Sitting and discussing whether it is war is very dumb. Defending the city and liberating the city is a completely different military operation. For about 6 years in the SAR, the war has been going on against the barmalei whom the West is arming and supporting. Honor and praise to Assad’s armed formations! I think so.

            Are we discussing Karabakh? Have you had any losses in Chechnya? There is war, so there are losses.
            Only one thing is strange, a whole division is approaching. 7 people have lost the attack of an entire division. A strange war is going on there.

              Why did you decide that the WHOLE DIVISION comes? Did you come up with something yourself?

                Read the article carefully. It is written that the 18th Panzer Tank together with units of the Republican Guard launched an offensive. The militants responded with heavy fire. The attack was suspended. 7 people were killed, 20 wounded, and several tanks were damaged.

                I don’t know what forces were advancing there, but according to the article, it turns out that an entire division was advancing, reinforced by parts of the Republican Guard. So either this is really so, or the editor got it

        Well, in a computer toy, a thousand would die and the brave cyborgs would remain standing still. The reality is a little different. hi
        If the units came across a fortified area where a couple of hundred good infantry with a serious number of anti-tank infantry squad are sitting, then it’s quite logical to move away. Depart, work on the identified firing points and shelters by artillery and aircraft and try again. Repeat until the desired result. request
        IF, AS A RESULT OF A SEVERE BATTLE, TOTAL 7 DEAD, THIS SAYS THAT OUR SPECIALISTS TRAINED THE COMMANDER NICE. But war or not. During the war, at least 60 thousand SAA soldiers and allies died. Generals die regularly - in battle, both Iranian and Syrian military experts.
        Territories are freed constantly. Another thing is that this is a little like a movie.

      It’s not obvious. Rather, it shows that the devils snarl, which is not surprising - the devils want to live the same.

      This is called reconnaissance in battle. Autopsy of the defense system, firing points, supply schemes, communications, communications under the zemlyats. Identification of maneuver capabilities. Forcing the enemy to concentrate forces and means in one specific place, for subsequent encirclement, fragmentation and destruction with minimal losses by aircraft, artillery and other neutralization methods and methods. No need to panic war is the art of deception. laughing

        Yes, that's exactly what they fought in the second half of World War II. Time has changed and technical means, too, reconnaissance in battle today seems like a fossil method.

    Not surprising even once! The fact that the combat effectiveness of the SAR army (if IT can be called an army) is lower than the plinth - this has long been known, and ISIS also know this. Therefore, there are so effective methods that cause panic - breakthroughs - suicide bombings ... And DIVISION ran!

      Have you returned from Syria long ago? Or do you evaluate war on u-tube?
      The SAA's combat readiness is not pretended to be assessed, but ISIS are clearly not sheep for grazing and are motivated and clearly knowledgeable in military affairs.

        That is to say the least. We admit, they fight even perfectly with the almost complete absence of heavy equipment, the Air Force and Air Defense ..

          So, how many former Assad and Iraqi officers and soldiers the Barmaleans have with experience, "they understand the battle and fortification." Again, "nishtyaki" in the form of weapons, BC and replenishment to them are received properly. It is clear that they are being crushed, but they will still drink blood.

      This "rabble" for several years in complete surroundings keeps dissected into 2 enclave in Deir EZ ZOR. When Obama’s aviation broke through the line of defense of the enclave for Black, destroying the key fortified area with an air strike, 104 brigade of the Russian Federation seized the ruins and Black did not enter the city. The airfield, surrounded on all sides, has been holding for several months. How much was Quereys fully surrounded? How long before the fall did Kindi hospital hold, which was destroyed by several martyrs and only after that they could take? And for how many cyborgs at the Donetsk airport were blown away? And not burdened by thousands of civilians? request
      And then you surrounded would have held out for at least a few months? Syrians are also all sorts. There is a militia with low combat stability, there are units battered for 6 years, there are tiger forces that stamp victories. There are our advisers and the parts that they train. Now Syria is 44 years old and the Syrian army 2017 is not the same army that it was in 2015, just like the Soviet army 44 years old is not the same as it was in 41 years old. Our military specialists showed an excellent training class. good
      Soon the tiger forces will break through the blockade of the DEZ and for Syria it will be for us a breakthrough of the blockade of Leningrad. This is an epic that will remain in the memory of generations. Personally, as a resident of St. Petersburg, those who are able to stay in complete surroundings for 3 years, clutching their ruins with their teeth, evoke respect. hi

        The 104th brigade is an elite special forces unit. If all the Syrian forces were like this brigade, the war would have ended long ago in the bud. Special forces of the Syrian army are equipped with Alawites. They know what awaits them if they fall into the hands of the IS. Therefore, they hold on to the end .

          To begin with, Druze commands in the DEZ, and not Alavite. DEZ itself held on primarily because there is a place of compact residence of Armenian Christians. The percentage of Saa Sunnis is the majority, as in Syria itself. In the territory. controlled by the authorities - more than 70 percent of the country's population. Something the people are not much delayed in the territories controlled by the "opposition", but flee either to the "tyrant" or to Turkey. Strange for a "religious" war. And in recent months, many Sunni militants have sided with the authorities. The tigers are attacking the DEZ along with tribal Sunni militias. DO NOT REPEAT FOREIGN PATTERNS. They always give simple answers, but not at all correct. hi
          Naturally, the main organizers of the war - the Saudis, Qatar and Turkey conducted subversive and recruitment activities among co-religionists, but this does not mean that most Sunnis are on their side.

    igilovtsy still receive military-technical assistance - weapons and ammunition

    It is not difficult to guess from whom and through whom. For a long time this bootlegg with blood. Even if ISIS is kicked out of Syria, which is most likely, the guerrilla war will continue.

    Yeah, the successes are so insignificant that the SAR squeezed ISIS out of the Suhein oasis, the largest settlement located east of Palmyra and opening the way to Deir ez-Zora. Well, the victory is very small, you need to take away from ISIS hundreds of kilometers of territory at a time. And the fact that large villages storm the ATS, so they are moving so slowly, spitting.

      The terrain is such that you have to fight in settlements. There are too few roads. And nobody wants to climb into the desert. Although it would be nice to stock up on fuel and drinking water and try to make a march through the desert. For militants, this would be a shock. Factor of sudden appearance plays an important role in such hostilities
