Is Khavija on the Euphrates - the last stronghold of the igilovtsy in Syria?

19
After the liquidation of a large group of terrorists of the so-called “Islamic State” (*) in Abu Kemal, Syrian troops will have at least one more serious operation in the fight against ISIL (*) in Syria. We are talking about the need to defeat a terrorist group that turned the Havija Island, located on the Euphrates River near Deir ez-Zor, into a fortified area.




The militants moved to the island a few weeks ago, fleeing the Syrian army units operating in the province of Deir ez-Zor.

According to the Syrian journalist Riyadh Farid Hijab, the militants brought the members of their families - women and children - to the island. They are actually used as human shields.

Syrian military intelligence reports that a group of several hundred Igilovs is concentrated on the said island. The operation to neutralize the militants is carried out with great care - in order to prevent death among women and children.

Against this background today come from Syria news that the Iraqi army crossed the Euphrates, came close to the border of the SAR. Iraqi troops engaged in battle with ISIS terrorists (*) who crossed the Syrian-Iraqi border after being defeated by the CAA in the Syrian Abu Kemal area. Soldiers of the 7 and 8 Iraqi divisions take part in battles with the Igilovs. They are engaged in the release of several border settlements occupied by terrorists.

      Wait, so the penultimate stronghold is still behind the spirits - Abu Kemal. Not for long, but still.

      The fourth last bastion. Seriously, this is just ridiculous. The 50 km long strip between Meyadin and Abu Kemal consists of a heap of villages and towns with dense buildings, where you can also dissolve for subsequent subversive activities. But no, the ory have gathered on an almost bare island and are sitting. According to Syrian sources, several hundred militants are usually no more than 50 people.

        This is the so-called live shield. But they will release it .. Anywhere. At home, in Idlib, to Europe (well, let’s go) I do what. The defenders did not hesitate to demolish the Vietnamese villages without bothering. Why should we let them go? ? And no one will be kind with us. They will cut everyone out. God forbid. The question must be resolved radically.

          Are you a Syrian? Serve in CAA? Or not, and not in business.
          The Syrians will decide. "Senior comrades" will advise, but carefully.

          What am I doing. The defenders did not hesitate to demolish the Vietnamese villages without bothering. Why should we let them go? Very good?

          The defenders and Raqqa turned into 1945 Dresden, not particularly worrying about casualties among the civilian population. And as to whether or not to release, then for any decision will be for those who will plan the operation. Meaningless sacrifices are also useless to anyone. When they were released from Aleppo, they saved the city and people, after which they methodically broke up in other positions.

    Interestingly, this island is included in those notorious 95 percent of the "liberated Syrian territory", because after chasing the notorious percent, someone forgot about the main thing - that you also need to destroy the militants on ALL Syrian land! !!!!!

      I don’t think that someone in Syria will be very upset if the Euphrates bed becomes wider and the river, accordingly, more navigable! laughing True, then talking about the "liberated territory" becomes somehow inappropriate. lol

    Set up snipers with long-range rifles and ATGM calculations around the perimeter of the island and open a shooting license. More than a week will not last.

    Is it worth it to regret - members of their families? Children will grow up and begin to take revenge, and women without any clothes will wear shaheed belts. Arrange Damansky Island there. Decent husbands, women will not hide behind, and women will not throw them.

    Once already reported that the island of Khavija taken as a result
    assault. It was already about a month ago.
    Cities and fortified areas are not easy to take. It takes time and patience.
    Who laughed at the long assaults of Mosul and Raqqa, the capital of the Caliphate?

      The Jews called Jerusalem the capital of Israel a hundred times, and the American, Ukrainian, Russian and other embassies are still located at or near Tel Aviv's embankment. Do not be afraid, Warrior, we will beat off an island like a trap this wonderful place. And Winter is our time. Santa Claus-Frost - will help. wink

    "the militants transported to the island both the members of their female families and children. They are actually used as a human shield" oh, what a brave war: hid under the skirt of his wife and shoots.

    The bulk of the defenders of Deir al-Zor are local residents ... Therefore, families are next to them, and defend themselves to the last. It is difficult to "liberate these Ishilovites themselves from the Ishilovites" ... Through the efforts of propaganda, a false picture was created in the heads of the Russian inhabitants. that the IG is what kind of foreign military force that came from anywhere in Syria. There are no more foreign mercenaries there than in Assad’s army ... More likely, even less in percentage terms.
