Situation in Syria

16
The Russian Space Forces conducted air strikes against terrorists in the northern part of Hama. The Syrian army is fighting in the north-east of Damascus, liberated a number of villages in the province of Hama. Reports about it FAN with reference to Syrian sources.




In the past 24 hours, skirmishes and armed clashes in northeast Damascus continued. Fights were noted in the area of ​​Kafr Batna and Harasta settlements. As a result of the precision strikes of the VKS of the Russian Federation, the defense of the militants suffered considerable damage. The capital has once again been bombed by the Islamists. The districts of l-Abbasiin, Bab Toum and Masakin Barze were hit, at least two civilians and several policemen were injured.

At least 20 militants of the IG group (banned in the Russian Federation) and their family members sided with the Kurds, having surrendered to them all their positions near the Al Omar oil field in Deir-ez-Zor province. This was a new confirmation of the existence of a tacit agreement between the Kurds and the United States supporting them on the one hand and the IS militants on the other. Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are moving into the provinces, almost without using weapon. Thus, the Kurdish units managed to easily approach the settlement of Abu Hammam. Meanwhile, in the city of Deir-ez-Zor, work on demining was completed.

Throughout the day, the Russian aviation continued to carry out combat sorties in the vicinity of the liberated city of Abu Kemal. In accordance with the intelligence obtained by the Russian Aerospace Forces, they launched several airstrikes on IS facilities.

In the northern part of Hama, fierce fighting between the radicals of the association led by "Dzhebhat an-Nusra" (grouping prohibited in the Russian Federation) and the Syrian army was unleashed throughout the day. Thanks to the combat sorties of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the village of Qasr al-Shawi, which is located on a hill and of strategic importance, came under the control of ATS forces. After that, government troops under the guise of the Russian Aerospace Forces launched the assault on the villages of Arfa and Al-Rabda. By evening, the settlements were freed. During the battles, "al-Nusra" suffered losses in manpower.

In turn, the Islamists claimed that as a result of the counterattack they were able to again seize the settlement of Sarkh, as well as destroy four tank army of the SAR, however, this information has not received confirmation.

    For us it’s just a summary, and for our military it’s a harsh day. Patience and consistency, not emotions, are the guarantee of victory in this war.

    All the same, it will be necessary to all those who agree with the militants to destroy, no matter what democratic names they carry. All who are friends with America must be kicked out, otherwise the campaign was useless.

    However, reports from our war.
    If we lose on this front, they will begin to push us on other fronts.
    And it is not known what war options will be applied to Russia tomorrow.

    I have a feeling of deja vu.
    It seems that in Damascus a long time, and in the Hama area, too.
    So you can run endlessly in a circle.

    "in the vicinity of the liberated city of Abu Kemal" ///

    The center of Abu Kemal has not yet been taken. He is surrounded and taken by the suburbs.

    This was a new confirmation of the existence of a tacit agreement between the Kurds and the United States supporting them on the one hand and IS militants on the other. Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are advancing in the province with virtually no weapons.

    The conclusions are simple 1. will clean the border with Iran; 2. clean all boilers; 3. SAR will be for Kurds
