The situation in Syria. Fights in the south of the country

60
The destroyer of the US Navy approached Tartus. The explosion of a residential building in Idlib killed 29 people and suffered more than 150. Reports about it FAN with reference to Syrian sources.



The USS Navy missile destroyer USS Donald Cook approached the Syrian port of Tartus, where the Russian Navy logistics center is located. In turn, the American aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman headed for the east of the Mediterranean Sea. The reason for the return of warships of the US Navy to the shores of Syria was trumped-up charges against Damascus about the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army weapons in the city of Duma. At the end of the day, the aircraft of the VKS of the Russian Federation began to make reconnaissance flights in the region of Tartus.

In the morning, 70 buses with militants of the opposition group “Jaish al-Islam” (* banned in the Russian Federation) and members of their families entered the province of Aleppo. In the city of Afrin, which, under the “Olive Branch” operation, pro-Turkish groups had taken control, the Syrian Free Police was created. According to the Ministry of Defense of Turkey, in the course of the operation, more than 4 thousands of SDF militants were destroyed in total.

In the province of Daraa, fighting continued between the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) and illegal armed groups. Artillery of government troops fired on militant positions in the east of the region.

An explosion occurred in the administrative center of Idlib province. The incident killed 29 civilians in the capital of the region, another 154 civilians were seriously injured. Local sources wrote that search and rescue operations are still underway at the scene. Meanwhile, the Russian aviation inflicted a number of attacks on the fortified areas of the terrorists Jebhat al-Nusra (banned in the Russian Federation) in the south of the province.

In the north, Hama province continued the military operation of the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) to liberate the region from terrorists. ATS government forces conducted artillery shelling of locations of radical Islamists near Al-Latamin. Actions CAA supports Russian aviation.

A roadside mine exploded east of Al-Shaddadi (Hasaka Province). The incident killed several fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Later, the Western coalition air forces launched a series of strikes against populated areas in this part of the region. Recall, a few days ago, local militias, who defended the population of the province from harassment by the Kurds, undermined a convoy of US vehicles on the road to Al-Shaddadi. The explosion killed 6 servicemen, another 8 people were injured.

    If they start shooting, you can’t not answer. It is necessary to work out the French with the British - these are not a pity. Do not touch the Americans yet.
    Then express deep regret.
    The Americans will appreciate the curtsy and draw conclusions themselves.

      They will not allow our surface ships to come to their attention, and they will not even climb into the zone of coastal complexes. The most realistic scenario is either a strike on their ships from our submarines, or aircraft, possibly even a long-range bomber. What does it mean that some others at such ranges and from under water will not be able to determine which ship in the group belongs to whom.
      So your plan is basically good, but very difficult to implement.
      I think so.

        In the world regularly something swims, moves and flies. This is-times. More recently, a similar ballet was observed off the coast of the DPRK, the results are known - these are two. The United States had a great chance to hit Russia in 2008, fitting into Georgia (given the state of our army at that time) - the results are also known - these are three. Leave your boorish recommendations to yourself - these are four.

        this is already a real task. Solved.
        Just stupid just to defend. Even if you hit 1000 axes. They will launch another 2000. This is no longer a war, but a circus of some kind.

            And it doesn’t come to us, because if it does, it means “put out the light”, the last time the enemy aircraft in our sky were in the 42nd year (they tried to bomb the strategic bridge over the Volga, but they drove them away with dense anti-aircraft fire, the front was far away, so they never bombed anything else, they just didn’t like our bridge very much). Since then it’s been quiet smile

    The morning was clear. The destroyer Donald Cook drifted 50 miles from the Syrian city of Tartus, where the Russian naval base was located.


    American sailors, leaning on a bulwark, lazily sipped freshly squeezed orange juice and stared relaxedly at the horizon. Someone chatted on his cell phone with his native Oklahoma:



    “Jane, we sank three Russian nuclear submarines yesterday.” Of these, I personally sank two, I swear to God! Jane, will you marry me?



    Suddenly, a noise was heard in the sky, a second later growing into an unbearable roar. Something flashed over the destroyer, almost hitting the antenna post of the radar installation.



    In the galley, the combi steamer immediately turned off and the microwave went out.



    - Oh god, again! - howled the cook, the only crew member who went to the Black Sea several years ago and after that went through three rehabilitation courses.



    He was keen to smoke, but the electric lighter did not work either.



    Somewhere on the bridge, the destroyer commander fiercely punched the fading screens of the Aegis system. Together with it, all weapon systems and target radars were switched off, without which the ship could fire either from its three Browning machine guns or from the captain’s colt.



    A minute later, the engines were silent. There was a ringing silence on the destroyer, broken only by the dull cries of some unfortunate man locked with an electronic lock in the latrine on the lower deck.



    The crew crowded on the deck. Dark dots appeared on the horizon, rapidly increasing in size. Four Su-34s entered Donald Cook.



    “Let me out of here, for the sake of all the saints!” - someone squealed a cry.



    Several people grabbed lifejackets and rushed resolutely overboard.



    Floundering in the water, Lieutenant Commander Jack Warren heard him shout:



    - The boat, Jack! A boat!



    Turning around, he really saw a Russian submarine, which was rapidly moving directly at him. It seemed to the lieutenant commander that she opened her toothy mouth, and he immediately broke all records of Michael Phelps even without drugs for attention deficit disorder.



    Su-34s flew so low over the destroyer that the officers on the bridge could see the Russian pilot. He smiled warmly and showed the officers a thumb - well done, they say, well done, comrades!



    For obvious reasons, the officers of the long-suffering destroyer did not share the optimism of the pilot.



    A boat from the French frigate "Provence" sailed past. The French, in broken English, asked which side of the Champs Elysees, the destroyer commander grimly waved his hand somewhere in the direction of Iraq. The French thanked and laid down on the oars.



    Evening came. The sailors made bonfires on the deck and warmed themselves, watching the stars begin to light in the sky.



    A Russian helicopter flew in and lowered a large pot of hot buckwheat onto the deck. They sent a basket of Crimean fruits from a submarine.



    “You will guard him there for a while,” asked Shoigu. - And how would they not sank their own ship with some kind of "secret Russian missile" Sailor "for the purpose of provocation. It will become from them.



    - There is! - answered the submarine commander and hung up.



    Soon, the entire destroyer was sleeping, lulled by buckwheat and a quiet splash of waves.



    Until Trump's decision to launch an attack against Syria, there was only 40 hours to wait.

      "Cook" will clog the radio communications and air defense of the Russian base, turning it into a deaf-mute one. Russia will not liquidate the destroyer. The United States will make a silent witness from Russia, at best.

    The US Navy destroyer approached Tartus.
    Provokes radar Syrian "Bastions", identify the position? winked And what, they may well appoint as targets for the strike - it is not known whether the Syrians have air defense systems for covering the "Bastions". sad

    Recall that a few days ago, local militia detachments, which stood up to protect the provincial population from oppression by the Kurds, blew up a convoy of US forces on the road to Al-Shaddadi.

    This is a good joke. Are these these?
