41
SAR government forces regained control of Abu Dukhur airbase in Idlib province, reports RIA News message from a military source.




According to the source, "the advanced units of the Syrian forces entered its territory after they occupied the fortifications from the east side of the airfield."

It was possible to free the air base after fierce battles with fighters "Jebhat al-Nusra" (banned in the Russian Federation) using aviation and artillery
he said.

Syrian troops drove the terrorists out of 12 villages and came close to the airfield. The surviving militants fled, the source added.

Since the beginning of the year, the Syrian army has managed to dislodge terrorists from dozens of settlements in the south of Idlib, as well as in the north of the province of Hama. During the offensive, government forces also destroy and seize weapon militants, armored vehicles and cars equipped with heavy machine guns.

Abu Dukhur air base is located less than 40 kilometers from the city of Idlib, the main stronghold of al-Nusra. The Islamists seized it in September 2015.

            Here, not only the territory is important, but also the number of losses.
            With an advantage in artillery and / or aviation, there is a tactic of special provocation of the enemy to mass attacks or kotrataki in open areas (this is several times more effective than hammering on the entrenched enemy): they took a height or base, the “barmalei” launched a counterattack in the desert, here they are and cover. And to keep this height or base is the second thing, most importantly without unnecessary losses on their part.

        hi
        Our and Iranian ambassadors were called to the Turkish Foreign Ministry, where they arranged a scolding in connection with the actions of the SAA in Idlib Ave.

        Assad, with our and Iranian support, did not give a damn about these Turkish Wishlist (by the way, the Turks in Syria - without invitation) and still took the base of Abu Duhur:

      That's it. You can’t shoot, but can drones with grenades be launched at a Russian base? The answer followed. But this is not enough.

    Continuation of the "Marlezon Ballet". They will clean up the idlib, spread to the east coast of Euphrates. The Americans are amazingly short-sighted. It is clear that they are "not shining" in Syria. But they continue to knock horns on the fence ...

    While the Turks scratch the back of their head, it is necessary to finish off the barmalei.

      Already shown by calling Russian and Iranian ambassadors to the Turkish Foreign Ministry. Yes, and drones flew from the zone of responsibility of the Turkish army. But he (Erdogan) will once again show his true face to our country.

        The fact is that the policy of Turkey towards Russia does not depend only on the country's leaders, all Turks see the Russians as enemies. If they fail to leave Idlib behind them, they will make claims against Russia, the same gas pipeline from nuclear power plants.

        He showed it, but it’s probably not enough for us, we need an open confrontation with the Turks, so that it’s possible with whom and with what people we are dealing. In the meantime, business and nothing more.

    Without unnecessary pathos, it is reported that the Syrian troops are slowly but surely freeing their land.

    This base is known for the fact that in September 2015 there were brought about 70 Syrian army soldiers and executed.


    However, it’s too early to relax. Base is half the battle. And it is a pity - that all more or less combat-ready units left their pockets in Idlib. Inside there are only local militia women and flying troops.

    Ahead as surrounded by the 3 year of Foix and Kefray. So is the Boorish ledge (the same Morek under the broads).

        This time the terrorists tried to do it more cunningly. Today they carried out a major attack south, however they say it was repelled.

          The militants posted the latest video on Twitter with captured SAA soldiers, the squad surrendered to the militants near Hama, Idlib. The number of surrenders is unknown. The same video has a columnist Ivan Sidorenko. And also today, the Tigers lost the 2 best field commanders, among whom was Ali Hassan. Most likely they were surrounded and waiting for reinforcement of PMC Wagner. There was information that since the beginning of 2018, Wagner PMCs lost more than 200 killed, but there is no one to confirm it.

            Yes, just where the attack was on the map, say at least 30-40 people. There is a video of the destruction of the tank, a photo with a captured BPM and much more.

    The attack on our base was most likely an attempt to set up the Turks in order to break the alliance with Syria and us and Iran. On the other hand, he showed that the Turks did not control anything there, but the Americans control through their gangs. Here they are cleaned. The Turks, of course, are brave and blather, but obviously they don’t want and do not want full-scale hostilities.
