Syrian General is killed near Deir ez-Zor

62
Sad messages come from Syria. When a mine exploded, one of the commanders of the Syrian government forces detached. We are talking about the General of the SAR armed forces Issam Zahreddin, who is known for holding a defense from the so-called “Islamic State” terrorists (* banned in the Russian Federation) Deir ez-Zor for more than three and a half years under his command.


Syrian General is killed near Deir ez-Zor


RIA News With reference to a representative of the Syrian army, reports that General Issam Zahreddin hit a mine near Saker Island.

It is known from the biography of the military general that until he took command of the Deir-ez-Zor garrison, he led the troops of the Republican Guard of the Syrian Arab Republic in Damascus. The detachments under his command, prior to the beginning of the participation of the Russian VKS in the counter-terrorist operation, were engaged in containing the central quarters of the Syrian capital under the onslaught of the militants. The general repeatedly participated in the development of defensive operations, and these operations were most often successful.

Against this background, the Syrian army continues to advance to the border with Iraq. For Syrian troops, it is important to block the cross-border movement of militants. And these are photos with trophy weapons from the previously freed Meyadin (photo Ivan Sidorenko):

          This is not just about General of the SAR Supreme Soviet Issam Zahreddin, but about the military-heroic patriotic elite of the SAR!
          This is really a big loss!
          Light memory to him!

          It’s a pity if this is true ... This military “grandfather”, a real general, once said that when we (the Syrians) finish the war at home, we will help the Russian brothers in the Donbass .... Land in peace to this soldier of his people .. .

        In Israel, it’s probably Shoigu’s holiday, just (just recently, the Syrian air defense was rafigachili) .. They know how to substitute the Jews, this can’t be taken away from them .. Shoigu will leave them spat upon and Putin too
        And we are in Russia!
        There is only one tactic, as in Ukraine, only more cynical with a malicious smile ..
        Shoigu's trip to Israel, Russia's rating fell not only in BV and Syria, but also in Russia ..

Heroes are not needed in civilian life? Their authority and not the ability to be politicians are dangerous, it is impossible to compromise with those with whom ...

      There are many generals. Killed the legendary Zahreddin. 3 of the year held a siege. I personally ran with a machine gun on the front line. The garrison survived and saved from collapse in a hopeless situation (back in the beginning of the year - even thoughts about the deblockade were fantastic).
      And here, on a landmine. Returning from a well-deserved vacation ...

    Everlasting memory. He fulfilled his duty - the DEZ resisted. But, here is the constant death of sensible commanders, that in Syria, that in the Donbass, I do not consider random. Only recently, our general and the commander of the brigade of marines were killed and Grandfather died. This is not an accident, but HUNTING. The performers may be local, but they guide them and conduct training and reconnaissance - definitely experts from the United States. Maybe the CIA, maybe the military, maybe PMC, but obviously the pros are working. request
    So - we need countermeasures and hunting for hunters.

        Komsomol is not peculiar to pessimism. As for the "answer". A week after the death of our general, the Russian Aerospace Forces gouged the “glider” of ISIS field commanders. About 30 adversaries died, and the main one was seriously wounded, his arm was torn off. For him, this is a heavier punishment than death. yes

        It’s possible with you. Over the past 5 years in Turkey alone, about 20 famous militants and field commanders have been destroyed. One of the last liquidated ones is Ruslan Israpilov. Yandarbiev was once eliminated in Qatar. There are specialists.

          The fact that there are specialists is undeniable. But out of 20 field commanders and militants, at least 7-8, if not more, were destroyed by their own, because they decided to break away from the Wahhabis.

    It is unfortunate that the real hero was.
    In general, this tendency is, to put it mildly, not good in Syria. There are clearly groups of Israeli or American special forces destroying the military commanders of Russia, Iran, Syria

    He died like a warrior. Eternal memory to the heroes.

    By the way, for information. 2013, in the city of Essaouida, the spiritual leaders of the Druze sentenced him to death.
    At one time he commanded the 104th Brigade of the Republican Guard. If you look at the list of commanders of this brigade, you will find half of the Assad family there.
    Deir Ez-Zor made a legend out of him. It may be that he was removed as his own. No one needs such a competitor with great authority among the people. The East is a delicate matter.

      Well, not only in the east. In the Donbas, too. As the saying goes: someone makes a revolution, and someone uses it. It was always and everywhere
