Damascus has increased 2,5-controlled territory in recent months.

According to the news agency “Interfax-AVN”, The head of the Russian military department, Army General Sergei Shoigu, during an interview with the Russia 24 channel reported on Damascus’s significant successes in the fight against jihadists, including thanks to the release of forces that had previously fought with the opposition.

In the last two months, the territories controlled by Damascus have increased 2,5 times. At the time of the appearance of our Aerospace Forces (VKS), our specialists, by the order of our President — let's call them so in a word, the two wars were actually parallel. One war with terrorists, the second civil war, the war of the opposition with the government.




Separation of terrorists from the opposition became possible when creating de-escalation zones.

When we said that this is a de-escalation zone, there is a moderate and not very moderate opposition, but an opposition. There are no gangsters. And if there are gangsters, then the opposition that is inside this de-escalation zone should fight them. Along the perimeter is our military police. She is already in three zones of de-escalation. Left fourth. And this is the separation. This separation has allowed us to allocate very serious forces in order to really fight with terrorists. And from here, naturally, success has gone.


According to him, Deir-ez-Zor is currently one of the key points.

I would say first of all Deir ez-Zor. There has been resistance for more than one year. They courageously resist. There regularly - two, three, sometimes four times a week, food, medicine, ammunition are parachuted. This is the main point on the Euphrates, which will largely - if not in everything - speak of the end of the fight against ISIS.

    Recently, messages from Syria are encouraging. It seems that he has come over, although before the end of the war it’s still far away and not a little blood will be shed.

          The map would be shown for clarity. And as soon as they deal with the bandits, the Western world will "wake up" with one purpose - to divide Syria into parts - Kurds, a piece to the Turks, a piece to itself - like Kosovo, Israel also drools ...

      The whole struggle is still just in front! Not with IS, but with the USA. On the partition of the territory of Syria, the states will give up all their strength. The integrity of the country does not interest them. On the contrary, Israel is interested in the SAR section, which continues to finance Annusra to continue its presence in the region and put pressure on Damascus.

        The Damascus area is already packed with missile defense to the eyeballs.
        One of the most saturated air defense areas in the world.

          And didn’t you think that kosher planes do not crash, not because it’s “impossible to shoot down”, but because “there is no command yet”? Syria today does not need a conflict with Israel. Not before that.

    and once again I would like to remind all the prowlers: we are wiping the nose of the entire pseudo-civilized world, with the United States at the head, and we are using forces less than at the May 9 parade (I exaggerate, of course) who else inside the country would at least show a shadow of such effectiveness ...

      Do not underestimate the value of our Stalingrad, equate it with the Syrian Deir ez-Zor, with a population (at the moment) of no more than 100 thousand people. In the largest and bloodiest battle in World War II, in Stalingrad, about two million people died on both sides. So these sluggish battles in the Arab country can not be compared to what happened in Stalingrad. Neither in volume nor in glow.

    Syria will be fragmented unambiguously, de-escalation zones are the first step in this direction. There will be approximately, as in Iraq, relations between the Kurds and Baghdad, supposedly a federation, but in reality separate entities.

    The war in Syria is slowly moving from the eastern densely populated region towards the west of the country, the desert part of the country. This is the reason for the large seizure of land, or rather deserts and semi-deserts, where all life goes along the roads.

      Yeah. And no one claims to them: neither moderate militants, nor Nusra.
      Only for ISIS was there expanse - wild places, Bedouins, primitive tribes,
      which is easy to fool around.
      So, in theory, the Syrian army will take these deserts sooner or later.
      Along the Euphrates there are many more village towns under ISIS, but there are others
      don't pretend.

    The east of Syria is the border with Iraq, a desert territory. West Syria - The Mediterranean coast, where the bulk of the population lives. Military action just goes towards the east.

    You are very cunning. And you know that.
    No large industrial or military installations in Syria will bomb Israeli planes in the foreseeable future.
