Situation in Syria

18
Russian humanitarian aid was delivered to Deir ez-Zor, the Israeli Air Force struck a new blow in the western part of the Hama province, reports FAN with reference to Syrian sources.




In the area of ​​Eastern Ghouta, armed clashes continued between units of the SAR and opposition groups. During the clashes, government troops suffered casualties. At least eight Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers were killed by the radicals.

In the afternoon, units of the government army managed to cleanse several settlements in the east of the province of Homs from ISIS (ISIS, a group banned in the Russian Federation) from terrorists. The settlements of Rasm Hamid, Al-Khubra Al-Gharbiya, as well as a number of strategic heights came under the control of Syrian troops and pro-Assad Shiite militias. Russian military aircraft provided significant support to the pro-Assad forces and the SAA. Thus, the Akerbat boiler continues to shrink gradually.

During the day, clashes were recorded between government forces and IS troops on the highway leading to Deir ez-Zor. And the city received humanitarian aid from the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties. Despite the difficult path and the threat of attacks from terrorists, Russian servicemen delivered packages of food and medicine to local residents in 40 trucks. In addition, a consignment of military equipment was sent to the provincial capital, as well as pontoon bridges and boats to cross the Euphrates. If the SAA crosses the river, then it will thereby be able to cut the main supply line of IS, and also block the path to Deir Ez-Zor for the Kurds and the United States.

The Israeli Air Force again launched an airstrike on areas controlled by the Syrian Arab Army. This time, the air attack targeted the town of Masiaf to the west of Hama. As a result of the air raid, at least two servicemen were injured. The Israeli government declined to comment on the incident.

The fighting by radicals to the west of the Akerbat cauldron is forcing government forces to strengthen their defenses in this direction and slow down the clearing of territories in the east of the region that are still under IS occupation, which plays into the hands of the militants. Thus, a new counter-attack by IS near Akerbat claimed the lives of nine SAA fighters. Nevertheless, according to information from government sources, the allied forces of the SAA and pro-Assad militias, with the help of the Russian Aerospace Forces, occupied two villages west of the city of Akerbat. In the vicinity of the village of Hamadi Omar, a military drone of terrorists was shot down by servicemen of the SAR army.

    Apparently the Israeli Air Force was not impressed by the statements about the common air defense system of Syria with Russian air defense systems)

      Israel has a good army and iron me ** and, their statements will not impress, very stubborn, for which their people were many times on the verge of zeroing. There should be our guarantees in their future safety. Although it is difficult to convince them of this. Another option is to close the sky for them - but this is the prerogative of Assad, since he is already in a state of frozen war with them, but this is in the future, when Syria will rise from its knees.

        Israel needs an army. The whole BV is one enemy for them. The tinder is not friends with the tree, it grows on it.

    And after all, there was a statement that the Syrians, together with the Russian Federation, strengthened their air defense in the territories controlled by the Syrian army.
    Why does not it work?

    But what about the "Peaceful sky" over Syria? Where was the umbrella of the Russian air defense?

      The Jews did not enter the airspace of Syria, it seemed like missiles were fired over Lebanon.

    Perhaps some empty building was bombed with a rocket from afar. That is to say, by agreement, for the purpose of some kind of PR campaign in Israel. Especially no one is outraged, so - the phrases on duty.

      Yes, because Syria, at the height of its power, when the Syrian air defense was considered almost the strongest in the BV, creating an unprecedented air defense zone in Lebanon in 82 could not do anything. It was "carried out" by the Israeli Air Force, practically without losses (officially).
      And now half of the air defense is gone, since 2011 there has been a civil war for survival. What is left is in the majority, restored by Russia.
      PS: Question. How to shoot down a prepared and well-armed enemy?

        Then everyone forgot (but in vain) that Israel has de jure been at war with Syria since 1963. It then stimulated the formation of the United Arab Republic - very pro-Soviet and pro-socialist under the three main military rulers of Syria, Iraq and, most importantly, Egypt! From it now there are only similar state flags - with only a different number of stars. Egypt until recently had intrigued, like the Saudis, against the current Assad. But Israel’s reanimation of the war with Syria with the new almost spectacular bomb raids on Syrian bases will force Egypt and the entire Arab world to react! This will be much more important and desirable for Russia than a demonstration of the impenetrability of the unified air defense system just announced in Moscow in the revived Russian Federation in Syria. It is good that the Israeli pros have shown where there are holes in it for a breakthrough and withdrawal. Thank. We will consider. Close it. Let's study the experience. But Russia doesn’t care more about Israel, but Egypt ... Hello to Israeli tankers on the day of the Soviet tanker! Do you want to go to Syria again? Test Merkaba in a real combat run? We will be interested, it is worth a lot, colleagues!

          And you, excuse me, agreed on everything with the Egyptian tankmen? Do they agree to burn in their Abrams and T'eshkas? After all, no one will go out to a duel. As usual, they will take out everything with aviation, and then they will come for trophies .. Then they got very excited about the area of ​​the new military base. And we must ask our tourists from there.
