Defense: Syrian army with the help of the VKS repelled the militants of the IG * Akerbat


Russian planes destroyed the strongholds and armored vehicles of terrorists, firing positions of artillery, command posts and communications centers of the militants of the IG.

Thus, as noted in the military department, the last major hotbed of resistance to terrorists in central Syria has been eliminated. "Currently, the units of the Syrian army are finishing off the remnants of terrorist groups of the IG in the Akerbat boiler
- added to the Ministry of Defense.

Earlier today, the agency Sputnik reported that government troops took Akerbat under fire control, fighting takes place at a distance of three kilometers from the village. The Russian Defense Ministry on Saturday morning said that Syrian government forces, with the support of the VKS, were squeezing a ring around militants in the Akerbat area. The ministry noted that Russian Su-34 bombers and Su-35 fighters on duty in the air promptly destroy the targets of terrorists.

The commander of the grouping of Russian troops in Syria, Colonel-General Sergei Surovikin, said earlier that the operation to defeat terrorists in the Akerbat region is coming to an end. At the same time, he noted that the capture of the city would secure the “road of life” Salamia-Hanaser and establish control over the oil and gas fields, reports RIA News.

            I am glad that the turning point in the war is already obvious. When the military finishes active operations, the time will come for diplomats. And here, the main thing is not to pump up and not to lose ground. This has already happened, unfortunately.

              Yes, the main thing here is not to get dizzy from success. Like ours at the beginning of 1942. Or in February 1943, when our 25th tank corps hardly captured Hitler in the Zaporozhye district.

              In fairness, it should be noted that not only the videoconferencing makes efforts there.
              And where are our MTRs, there are not insults, but breakthroughs. God bless them.


              DEZ is already 50 km away. After the wedges on the roads converge in Al-Shola, there will be nowhere to defend the spirits. And they will trample down the Euphrates, where it will not be easy.
              In that area, support is provided by our attack helicopters, which is the key to success.

                For whom it will not be easy?

                There, in the Euphrates flood plain, there are so many Akerbats that little will not seem to anyone. Plus, the time factor - Amer Kurds will not sit idly by (they won’t).
                Everything is just ahead.

              Pash, read above about diplomats. They say the main thing is that they would not blunder when their time comes. But while I see them in America, Drew Mu Chat!
              Now we will win, and then we merge?

              Another big surprise is the self-made Tank-Borne Explosive Device (TBIED) explosive device, the Caliphate used such TBIEDs, but this one also got a tower!

        Akerbat city

        Why distort names all the time? Judging by the illustration of the article and the sign on it - the name is closest in sound to "Akyirbat." What cancer is AkErbat?
        There is no vocalization of the sound "e" in literary Arabic. (from the same series why the Hezbollah is not correct (the Hezbollah is correct)).

      According to Akerbat, it is not clear at all. Yesterday they wrote that they released, today ISIS counterattacks and writes that they took the city back.
      Now this news. Is this a late message about yesterday’s success, or was it recaptured after ISIS’s capture of the city today and it was taken again? Not clear yet. Apparently there are fights and can change hands several times.
      ISIS is already writing about 7 Russian killed there.

      By the way, a map with outdated data. Toward Der-ez-Zor have already moved much further! There have also been changes in the Maadan area (a successful ISIS attack).

        Yes, everything is fine there, the advanced units captured the village of Akerbat yesterday at 1.09. 17g in the afternoon, it was not possible to advance further from the heights of Hamadi, the militants fired mortar fire. The enemy retreated, a counter attack was repelled in the evening, one jihadmobile missed while fussing with the wounded and killed (there are not many of them around 5), it began to get dark. They decided to retreat 5 km to the original. At night, our drones and aircraft pulled themselves up, extinguished everything that moves there. On the morning of the 2nd day they again took the village. during the day, aviation worked in the nearest settlements, which are located on high ground relative to Akerbat, pulled up tanks and artillery. In the evenings they took one of these villages. I think tomorrow they will take Soha the day after tomorrow. Tactics have been fully developed. Advanced units are reconnaissance of the coordinates of targets. Aviation and artifacts suppress and destroy. Once again, people do not risk it.
        We are waiting for a video from the videoconferencing system, in that area the enemy has up to 20 tanks, their aircraft must have shattered spectacularly. soldier

          Well, it would be nice, conflicting information comes. ISIS wrote about the ambush, and so on.

          I would watch a video with turntables, more interesting than airstrikes fellow

        There are many fronts and they are quite extended. Impact parts are concentrated on the ground of the main operations. Where the front is stationary - they put up a militia, etc. As the front line shrinks, new forces are released. In principle, attacks are going on against blacks in the Akerbat boiler and immediately in 3 places on the eastern front (near Efrat, to Al Shole and T2), the operation in the mountains of Kalamun on the border with Lebanon has just ended successfully and forces have not yet reached to the new tvd. There is also an offensive on the greens along the border with Jordan. Attack on fileak in Eastern Ghout. Plus, an attack is expected from the Idlib region, and you have to keep reserves to repel it. Plus you need to keep the lines of the remaining fronts.
        Tch just today the front line is too big. But it is noticeably declining. On September 1, the Syrian government already controls 46 percent of the country's territory. 2 years ago, it controlled 15 -17 percent. As the boilers weld and the territories controlled by the enemy dry out, there will be more forces for new operations. hi
