Also, the colonel-general noted the complete liberation from the terrorists of the Syrian province of Aleppo.

As a result of the actions of the Syrian army, the cities of Al Kom, Bir Kdem, the oil field of Mambidija, were liberated, the attack on Al-Teibe continues, creating one more ring of encirclement.

    No need to slow down your pace. The initiative is in the hands of the Syrians, and if you do not put pressure and begin to relax, then the enemy will regroup and everything will be severely inhibited.
    I would (well, let me give you a little command) would strengthen the city of Deir Ez-Zor itself with a helicopter landing (at night landing) with a group of about 400-500 fired soldiers with good weapons from the airfield. Then squeeze the militants from the north and take up positions on the right bank of the Euphrates by reducing the contact line in this zone and then expand the zone as much as possible by squeezing the militants from the airfield along the perimeter as far as possible in order to free at least a bit of the airfield for the possibility of landing transport aircraft and if you can transfer equipment there to strengthen or further advance from Deir Ez-Zor expanding the space.
    Well, like, given its divinity, try to strategically reflect.

    The fact that the Army of our country worked out at the last stage of the war in Afghanistan was immediately applied in Syria. Remember the accuracy of bombing from 5 thousand meters with an accuracy of 20 meters hitting the target. Basically, this process was worked out by two research institutes of the USSR Ministry of Defense. And then went new rocket technology and information from RSNS "Glonass". The equipment was created and installed on airplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces. I have the honor.

      If the Russian Army did not start an operation in 2015 against the rapidly growing IS in Syria, now, in addition to confrontation with NATO, we would have a powerful Islamic State near our southern borders. Absolutely hostile and with enormous resources and influence among Muslims. The decision to wage war on foreign territory by comparatively small forces was correct. In such a situation, cash costs are not the main thing.

      In fact, this is not very much money the United States (and the USSR at one time) spend much more. This is the very case when money is subsequently beaten off handsomely. I’m not even talking about an increase in defense industry sales, and about multibillion-dollar construction and oil contracts after the end of the war! And most importantly, Russia is raising itself in rank. And it costs a lot! Higher than any Olympiads for which 60 billion were spent.

    Over the past 5 days, Russian aircraft made 316 sorties and delivered 819 strikes.

    Now the reverse wave has begun. The fighting is becoming less and less prolonged and less bloody. The fighting potential of ISIS is waning, the morale of the troops is falling, and it has to be supported by harsh executions.
    The question is rather about the fate of the ISIS project, how much are sponsors willing to translate a direct clash between military groups into a guerrilla war?
