By three o'clock on Sunday night, with the support of the VKS, they managed to dislodge the militants from the northern and western quarters, and by seven in the morning - to release the central and southern parts of As-Sukhne, taking the city under complete control.

The release of As-Sukhne is a strategic victory and opens up opportunities for government forces to attack Deir ez-Zor, which the militants have been under siege for more than three years, the military department said.

IG terrorists * blocked all roads, so that the garrison and civilians could only receive supplies by air. Since January, the militants have stepped up attacks on residential areas of Deir ez-Zor and the military airfield.

        I agree with you - in Stalingrad daily killed up to 10-15 thousand people. in Leningrad, only from starvation during the first winter, almost half a million ?! Eternal Memory to Heroes!

          there is not and there cannot be at least some correct comparisons, it’s like giving a human passport to some kind of capybara, on the basis of the similarity of its embryo with a human in the first week of pregnancy ...

        You look directly "exceptional man" and all the other plebs.
        When people compare, they compare in miniature, but you will not cancel the tragedies of people with your vanity comments.
        Hundreds of thousands of dead, thousands in slavery, millions in flight and all this in the "progressive, humanitarian, legal" 21st Century.
        These "revolutions" around the world suit the United States, shake the United States with test tubes and they still destroy peoples wherever they can.
        Your petty, scrawny commentary on the exceptional, it would be better if you kept it with you.

        So after all, in the riots in Charlottesville, the "exceptional" have already been accused ...... Guess whom at once. Interestingly, if you listen to the opinion of the "exceptional", at least one dirty trick on the planet happens without the participation of Russia?

      Well, they are far from the heroism of Leningrad. Although resilience in the environment is undeniable. Mostly militias fight, there their families and they have nowhere to go, either to fight or to slaughter everyone.

        Well, why are you still distracted by the little things. Everything has its time: “The first thing is airplanes ..” - in the sense of denyushki, it is necessary to get in the form of oil and gas fields Deir ez-Zora, and there people themselves will reach for a full hawk and stop bombing everything in succession, verified by many thousand years of experience.

    Blocked the city, that is, surrounded? And if they blocked, then where did the militants get knocked out?
