Situation in Syria

22
The Russian Aerospace Forces continued to strike at the IS group (ISIS, banned in the Russian Federation) in Deir ez-Zor, terrorists in the Akerbat region in the east of Hama counterattacked government forces, reports FAN with reference to Syrian sources.



Clashes continued throughout the day between armed opposition groups and units of the government army in the Eastern Ghouta region (Damascus). During the attempted offensive, the SAA lost tank T-72. In addition, one of the brigadier generals of the SAR troops, Hasan Bilal, was shot dead near the city of Irbin.

The Islamists, whose units are based in the west of Idlib province, once again attacked the strongholds of the government army in the northern part of Latakia in the Jebel Al-Akrad mountain range. In addition, in the second half of the day, the administrative center of the region came under rocket fire, as a result of which one of their houses in the Kunainis area was partially destroyed.

Fighters of the Syrian Free Army (FSA), stationed in the south-west of the province of Homs, have lost the support of the British forces. According to the British newspaper Daily Telegraph, the special forces of the United Kingdom left the area of ​​the At-Tanf border crossing, since the FSA units are fighting not so much with the terrorist group IS, as with the government army of the SAR.

During the day, government forces, together with the forces of the militia units, continued to advance in the direction of Deir ez-Zor with the help of the Russian aviation... A day earlier, Russian military aircraft inflicted significant damage to a terrorist group, eliminating many pieces of military equipment of terrorists, as well as a command post and more than 20 military pickups with weapons... Nevertheless, despite reports from some military sources on Twitter, only a small army unit managed to reach the SAA units besieged in Deir ez-Zor. The parties continued to fight near the settlements of Kobajip and Al-Shula. The Al-Harrat oil field came under the control of the Syrian army.

Units of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), supported by the Western coalition air force, continued to develop the offensive in Raqqa. Both sides suffered casualties: IS - 27 people, Kurds - 20.

Clashes continued between IS and the Syrian army in the vicinity of the liberated city of Akerbat a day earlier. The militants made two attempts to regain their lost positions - they attacked the SAA convoy located near the settlement of An-Naimiya, and a little later they sent a suicide bomber to the same area. Nevertheless, in the afternoon, the forces of the SAA and pro-Assad detachments, with the help of the Russian Aerospace Forces, advanced in clearing the territory inside the Akerbat Cauldron and occupied the settlements of Masud and Um Rammal. In addition, SAR troops discovered several ammunition storage facilities left by the militants, east of Salamia.

        Now it's time to create a corridor for the main forces.

          Deir ez-Zor's defenders will now feel better ...
          I am amazed at him ... they fought for months surrounded by the most militant ISIS units and were still able to hold out ...
          truly the winner is the one who does not give up and resists the aggressor under any circumstances.

                Well, in DZ, if I'm not mistaken, the largest Armenian enclave in Syria, in the event of a seizure by ISILoids, had to go under the knife. Well, several neighboring tribes withdrew to the city when the bearded men attacked.

          Military logistics loves to move on asphalt roads.
          To fully unblock Daig ez Zor, you need to take control of the M20 highway completely. This means pushing back the front by 3-5 km. Creation of a network of defensive sportsmen along the entire route. Air monitoring of the area adjacent to the route to the required depth.

      There seem to be battles along the road. There are 10 kilometers left. But, some parts have already entered Deir Ez-Zor. As I expected (wrote on the forum) that we will reach Deir Ez-Zor very quickly. And this will happen not from the northern face (it was much closer there!), From where the SAA was thrown back, but from the Al-Sukhna area.

      There is also a less pleasant thing - the American proxies of the Kurds began to seize the territory beyond the Euphrates from the blacks.
      But no one expected such agility from the SAA, and the "allies' rush to Berlin" (Deir ez-Zor) was late.

    Still unblocked! Well, of course, there are nuances ... Not enough for all combat-ready units, but it seems that the support of the Aerospace Forces is of DECISION, and they learned to "deal with" suicide bombers, and not stupidly scatter around corners when approaching ...

      In addition to the Aerospace Forces, Russian advisers played a large role, and the Syrians themselves demonstrated high motivation and good learning ability, in contrast to the rest of the Arab armies, where our military worked.

    30 years ago (while studying at a military school) one of the teachers instructed me to make a report "Logistics of the encircled troops using aviation", it was not useful to me in my service, but someone did it for three years in a war.

    If so, then this is very good news, but somehow it’s scary to believe. Well, in addition to the unblocking, there is still a lot of work left - it is necessary to dislodge the ISIS from the captured areas of the city, and grind all the reinforcements that are concentrated around Deir es-Zor ...
