Situation in Syria

27
Damascus blamed the Western coalition for the murder of civilians in the province of Deir ez-Zor. The terrorists suffered losses as a result of air strikes of the Russian Space Forces and the Syrian Air Force in Hama. Reports about it FAN with reference to Syrian sources.


Suburb of Damascus, October 17.

Over the past day, armed clashes between anti-government radicals and ATS troops continued in the north-east of Damascus. Mutual artillery shelling was noted in the Jobar and Ayn-Tarm quarters, as well as near the village of Duma. In the west of the province, clashes occurred again between the government army and the forces of the terrorist alliance. The most large-scale firefights were recorded in the area of ​​the village of Mugr Al-Mir.

More than 70 families who left their homes during the fighting, returned to the area of ​​the city of Muskan, located southeast of Aleppo. Those in need received kits with food and medicine from the Russian Federation. It became known that the Syrian Free Army (SSA), supported by Turkey, intends to launch an attack on the city of Manbij in the northern part of the region. The Kurds received leaflets warning of the seizure of the city at any cost.

Throughout the day, in the vicinity of the city of Deir ez-Zor, battles broke out between the radicals of the Islamic State (the group was banned in the Russian Federation) and the Syrian army operating with the help of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the pro-Assad militia. Government forces managed to break through the first line of defense of the terrorists and liberate the Al-Sinaa area, as well as most of the Khasarat quarter. Meanwhile, the Syrian Foreign Ministry called on the UN Security Council to stop the killing of civilians by Western coalition forces. Damascus blames the alliance's air force for violating the country's sovereignty, as well as for the death of at least 14 people.

The “Democratic Forces” (SDF) continued to advance in the southeastern part of Deir Ez-Zor province and reached the outskirts of the Al-Tanak field, without encountering resistance from the igilovites. In addition, according to unconfirmed reports, the Kurds captured the city of Al Busayrah and Diban on the left bank of the Euphrates. Recall that many military experts believe that there is a secret agreement between the Kurds and the Islamic State.

Throughout the day, the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Air Force continued to conduct air attacks on the objects of the terrorist association north-east of Hama. As a result of the sorties, dozens of radicals, several units of military equipment, as well as a number of command posts of the Dzhebhat an-Nusra (grouping banned in the Russian Federation) were destroyed, after which the SAR forces managed to occupy the village of Shakhatya. Air strikes were inflicted after receiving accurate intelligence that the militants are preparing an attack on the strategic highway "road of life".

        By the end, things would move if the government controlled at least two-thirds of the territory ... And so. There they tear the country apart. In Baghdad they’ve been fighting for years.

              What are you talking about and how are you doing with arithmetic - less than 10% of the territory under ISIS remains (there were statements about 5%). And you're all about 2/3 of the territory.

                In addition to ISIS, the government has so many enemies ... The country is actually divided by religious clan grounds. Assad are supported by the Alawites, but with the others .. Either agree or fight, which is not at all good ..

          Tearing up. And Iraq and Syria. Well, with Iraq, it still went nowhere ... There, the central authorities have had problems with the Kurds for decades, but in Syria, this problem is called a “remake”. And everyone perfectly understands who is the creator of this "miracle." They understand, but cannot do anything with the "creators" militarily or politically.
          And as a result, the collapse of states, destabilization, more deepened than today ...
          And instead of Baghdad, you obviously wanted to write Damascus?

              Kurds are not fools either, and one can always promise "golden mountains".
              Recently, they are all and sundry all promise and use for their own purposes.
              But it will end badly for them, at best they will allocate a piece of autonomy within someone. request

                And the Kurds will not agree. Even if they want to agree, the Americans will not give. What then? Leave it as it is?
                The answer is already known in advance! Kurds will not agree, and the situation will remain as it is. That is, the Kurds will be 70% of all Syrian oil, and 40% of all Syrian territory.

                    I’m talking to the drunk, I swear! If negotiations were such an effective means, then no one would have fought! Why didn’t they agree with ISIS so that they would return the territory? In your opinion, this would be enough! Why did you need to fight them?
                    Are the Kurds sick or something to return the territories conquered in battle by good return?

        One phase ends, then there will be another.
        Time will tell, politics or the beginning of new ones.
        By the noise already the territory of Syria is being squeezed out little by little, accordingly Bashar will not make gifts.

      Yes, and I think it's too early to share the skin. Moreover, Russia has repeatedly complicated the task for itself and the Syrians, having failed to achieve the expulsion of the “coalition”, but simply for the Americans from their area of ​​responsibility.
      Now, WHO and HOW will expel Americans? Or does someone naively believe that they, "defeating terrorism," will just leave? Yeah! They didn’t come for that!
      Moreover, the same story is with Ukraine. The Americans are being fixed there, and then what to do about it request .
      But this is not “distant Syria”, but “underbelly” ...

    Damascus accused the Western coalition of killing civilians in the province of Deir ez-Zor.

    ... once again (I did not count how many) the mericatos were bombed by the civilian population ... and there will be no consequences for them (striped) ...

    experts are sure that between the Kurds and the IG there is a secret agreement.
    So there is an agreement between the Kremlin and the Coalition. The Americans demanded from the Kremlin that Assad proxies attack only along the right bank of the Euphrates and not pretend to be oil. Exactly what happened! Pro-American Kurds captured the last largest Tanak oil field, thereby winning the oil race. Although initially the Syrians were closer to this field, there were no attempts to occupy it. Strange thing why?
    All this was expected and predictable, after the Kremlin abandoned the attempt to force the Euphrates in the Deira area, and the Ishilovites cut communications. Which by the way is still located behind Isil.

    Who supports the Kurds? belay It is naive to believe that the United States would allow the Kurds to negotiate with Assad ("Assad must leave" (c)), especially when he lost the war No.
    Will deal with the big of evils, then it will be something to decide with the Kurds what

    In our country, Putin, too, has not yet agreed with everyone.
    However, mass terrorism gangsterism and internal war are already behind.
    And then the war is in full swing.
    Not all at once.
    Breaking the stick.
    With reasonable to negotiate.
    Assad involuntarily led Syria, he did not plan such a fate.
    The main thing is that Russia agreed further. It will help in the arrangements and normalization of both the external and internal situation.
    The experience is serious.

      And now ... Eh ... Americans in Syria are at home.
