During the battles for the city of Meyadin, the Syrian army managed to seize rich trophies - many hundreds of small and anti-tank units weapons, dozens of armored vehicles and artillery, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


In Syria, the terrorists beat off an American howitzer


The American 155-mm howitzer M198, which fell into the hands of terrorists in 2014, stands out among the trophies. Then the militants of the IG (banned in the Russian Federation) smashed the 2 Iraqi infantry division in Mosul, which was armed with these howitzers, transferred by the Americans as military aid.

Then this weapon spread along the fronts of Iraq and Syria. In total, the terrorists got about fifty M198. Aviation the Western coalition tried to destroy the guns, but, as can be seen from the photographs, some of them survived.



Later, in May, the 2015-th militants managed to encircle the Iraqi military near the headquarters of the Anbar Operational Command and the base of the 8-th army brigade.

The attempt by the government forces to break through from the encirclement ended in a catastrophe and the seizure of the army base, along with warehouses of weapons, equipment and ammunition. Among the trophies were again M198,
told military expert Yuri Lyamin.



Currently, in Syria, terrorists are defeated after defeat and government troops, with the support of the VKS, are doing what the US military failed to do — systematically destroying enemy arsenals, the paper concludes.

      Well, when they found small arms and all kinds of grenade launchers in the desert, and the Americans said that they had missed and dropped their weapons in the wrong place - that’s one story. And then the howitzer, as they explain?

        No, the Americans didn’t deliver howitzers for ISIS. For them, however, you are tormented by delivering sweat, but you won’t make them on your knee.
        ISIS itself was recaptured from Iraq back in 2014. Yes, they delivered howitzers to Iraq.

    The mattress first enters its troops into Iraq, wreaks havoc there, then inhabits Iraq with barmales and supplies them, but also provides military assistance to Iraq in the fight against them! finally TRESH request

      And the mattress is a good uncle. He helps both. For him, war is one of the means of subsistence.

    But what explains the T-55, T-62, T-72, and even T-90 among the bearded Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation? ... What are the Syrians, what are the Iraqis “best” fighters in the world ...

    Yes, this can not be! Is it really American? Is the USA supplying nothing there?

        And no one hides the origin of T-90. Here is a small but significant difference between us and them

        Please tell us in more detail, since you have information about this. Who stole the T-90 tank from Russia and how? What do you mean, "stole"? How did this “hijacked” tank get to the militants?
        Although, even before your answer, there is already a certain confusion in your information. Stole - it means stolen. So the state of the Russian Federation in this case acts as the injured party, but not the sponsor. Your funny malevolent laugh is out of place here.
        A delivery methods from the american state weapons, ammunition, spare parts, fuels and lubricants, drugs, products and other to the militants of the caliphate and other terrorists who are solving in Syria the most important task for Americans to overthrow Assad, have long been known. They used to talk about them in an undertone, through third parties on the Internet and political scientists on TV shows, but recently they began to talk about this clearly, loudly and clearly (and most importantly, officially) in our native Moscow region. If you are interested, you can look without any problems.

    The Russian Federation does not sponsor.
    And the USA creates and finances the largest terrorist organizations for decades.

    Everyone is surprised that they do not have airplanes or air defense systems. Somehow they are armed one-sidedly. It seems that the money was also connected, but at least they could not buy a simple air defense system. Strange as that. Or their commanders are so stupid or something.

Then the militants of the IG (banned in the Russian Federation) smashed the 2 Iraqi infantry division in Mosul, which was armed with these howitzers, transferred by the Americans as military aid.

    It seems that the Bulletin of Mordovia, where this article came from, has the main task - to legalize the American weapons that were found by ISIS terrorists. There was no rout of the 2nd Infantry Division. There was a gangster run of a small number of bandits to Mosul, and then there was a joint drap of the Iraqi military under the leadership of American advisers (read - commanders).
    In total, the terrorists got about fifty M198. The aviation of the Western coalition tried to destroy the guns, but, as can be seen from the photographs, some of them survived.

    Western coalition aviation tried to destroy guns? fool laughing Well, well ... But why did the Americans with such difficulty deliver these weapons across the ocean? They clearly say: the main goal is the overthrow of Assad.
    An attempt by government forces to break out of the encirclement ended in disaster and the seizure of an army base, together with depots of weapons, equipment and ammunition. Among the trophies were again M198 ...

    The fights in Anbar lasted several months, the defense held on tightly, which was not in the plans of the Americans, as we understand it. Then the Americans insisted that the most combat-ready Shiite militia be kicked out of the defense. In fact, everything rested on Shiite militias. Kicked out. As a result, the Ishilovites immediately captured the headquarters and the nearby base with beautiful armored vehicles and artillery in boxes.
    I tried to imagine how the Germans, after many months of fighting for Stalingrad, capture the headquarters of Chuikov and the nearby base with beautiful armored vehicles and artillery in boxes. I tried, but could not. But how is this possible? !!! In my opinion, this would be possible only with a carefully planned betrayal to surrender positions and transfer technology to the hands of the enemy. Which happened in May 2015 under the able guidance of the Americans. The Americans planned, the Americans did.
