    Of course, the city is not small, but there are innumerable nasties in it.

      Not so long ago it was broadcast on TV that our specialists now only instruct Syrian sappers. Perhaps the involvement of our units is necessary not only to neutralize, but also to find significant "artifacts" for the information war, which could be inherited by American instructors.

        It is unlikely that a good sapper cannot be prepared in one two months. You need to know too many nuances .... So, I'm afraid our peasants have to work.

      The title is incorrect in Syria, sappers have been working for two years. For the first time a group of sappers was sent to Dei ez-Zor. And all will be 175.

          In the news, “first group” means that several groups will be sent on this business trip to Deir ez-Zor, and this is the first of them.

    We must also send a team of nannies from kindergarten there, let the Arabs be fed from the spoon and change the diapers for them.
    Though something they themselves are able to do?
