Situation in Syria

As a result of the bombings laid by the Kurds in Afrin, civilians were killed. The terrorists resorted to a suicide bomber attack northeast of Damascus. Reports about it FAN with reference to Syrian sources.

During the day, fighting between illegal armed groups and the government army continued to the northeast of Damascus. Radicals briefly managed to seize several buildings on the outskirts of the village of Duma, but later they returned under the control of the Syrian Arab Army (CAA). In addition, CAA units occupied several farms and a laboratory on the outskirts of the village.

Humanitarian aid arrived in the city of Sakba, which was in a catastrophic humanitarian situation. Civilians reported that the militants did not care at all about providing Syrian citizens with food, but, on the contrary, confiscated food from those who refused to fight on the side of jihadists. On the eve of the Eastern Guta, more than 6500 people left. Meanwhile, Islamists "Dzhebhat an-Nusra" (banned in the Russian Federation) attacked the strongholds of the SAR forces, engaging a suicide bomber in a mined car. However, according to military sources, Syrian troops suffered no casualties.

Last days, another Turkish military convoy arrived in Aleppo. The military occupied territories northwest of the regional capital, not far from the neighboring province of Idlib. The reinforcements arrived to create strongholds to monitor the observance of the regime of silence (Turkey is the guarantor of the truce in Idlib). Meanwhile, it became known that before leaving the city of Afrin, Kurdish troops mined the entire town and its environs. The explosions of the mines laid by the Kurds led to the death of not only 13-ti fighters of the pro-Turkish “free army”, but also seven local residents. At the same time, about 20 Syrian citizens were injured.

The Syrian Air Force conducted combat missions throughout the day in the eastern part of the province of Dara after the announcement of al-Nusra about its readiness to launch an offensive against government forces. Under the blows of the Syrian aviation the fortified areas of the radicals found themselves on the outskirts of the settlement of Busra Al-Hariri, from where the militants intended to attack the city of Isra.

In the south of the province of Idlib continued air attacks of the Syrian Air Force and the Air Force of the Russian Federation. According to the information, targeted air strikes fell on the fortifications and military equipment of the terrorist coalition on the outskirts of the settlement of Al-Hibat, as well as not far from the city of Khan Sheikhun.

    Each in his corner plays his own "melody". That's just the "music" is too sad.

    Well done. Guta will be cleared "tightly" ... And soon enough. Hysteria with Guta and the cries that Assad MUST use chemical weapons are still relevant ... But it’s quieter and quieter. All the same, the General Staff warning that we will shoot down, and together with the carriers wassat action taken ...

      The foreigners entertained themselves with the hope that the GDP would not go through the first round, or at least not get 45% of the turnout, then then, supposedly under the uncertainty, they would have fallen apart. And now the engine is gone, only the clowns are left.

          The Russian Federation is just not on the brink, it is in Syria in accordance with international standards, but the actions of the so-called "coalitions" have long been beyond the boundaries of these norms and rules. The West has stepped over the line a long time ago, for them it is the norm (they think immortality ate, or what?).

            You yourself decide what you are writing about. You have a confusion in your head. You write about Russia in Syria as a whole, with our elections including, or exclusively about Syria. You stated your view of Syria in the context of the elections here and you received the answer in the same vein. And if about walking on the verge in general ... - both sides of the confrontation walk along this verge, if it arose and exists just like that, in this form. Is always. Otherwise, this is not a fight)

    Correctly stated in the article - terrorists! No matter how lofty goals those who conduct military operations by the method of terror, the result of which is the death of civilians, are covered, these are terrorists. It doesn’t matter who does this - an individual, a certain community or the authorities in the country.

    This is called - an unknown author made an informational stuffing to fool people. Each word is deceitful, but to make it seem believable, all lies are based on the foundation of twisted truthful facts. In the West and in Russia in liberal media, this is exactly what is happening. Now get to VO?
