Как сообщает Iranian news agency Fars News, at the end of last week, Syrian government forces repulsed a powerful counter-attack by Islamic State militants (a group recognized as terrorist and banned in Russia and many countries of the world) in the area of ​​the city of Abu Kemal (Deir ez-Zor province).


Last Thursday, government forces engaged in battles with significant forces of ultra-radical caliphatists, who launched a powerful counterattack using suicide attacks on the position of the Syrian army in the city of El-Kataf.

Syrian units repulsed massive jihadist attacks with heavy losses for the attackers and forced the militants to retreat, although sporadic fighting took place in the area all last Friday.

The interim UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, speaking at a press conference in Geneva last Wednesday, expressed the need for urgent improvement of the already dire situation in which about 7000 of peaceful Syrians fell in Deir ez-Zor province. According to her, for the most part these are quite peaceful inhabitants, who are actually forcibly held by “igilovtsy”, who impede their departure through “humanitarian corridors” and use them as “human shields” to protect themselves from air bombardment as from the Russian HVAC , and from the US Air Force.

At the same time, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights reported that, according to her data, ultraradical caliphatists in recent days in the territories under their control in eastern Syria again resumed mass executions of people suspected of the slightest disloyalty to the jihadist regime.

    I’m glad ... SAA combat readiness has increased significantly. Previously they read - they retreated, fled, could not stand it ... And they no longer were afraid of suicide bombers.

        Dmitry. In the above picture, the shadow of the grenade launcher is short. So the sun is about in the south. Then the worshiper should stand with his back to the operator. Staging?

      The Syrian army uses relative calm on the front line, building up forces for a decisive offensive.

    Explain in more detail about the picture. In my opinion, everything is correct. Muslims pray
    towards Mecca. Syria to the north of CA means praying to the south, i.e. as expected.

    The forces of the SAA appeared, but this does not mean that they no longer need the help of the allies.
    According to history, she already recalled how the Red Army was losing ground during the German offensive, but after the counterattack near Stalingrad it itself went on the offensive - everyone remembers the result.

    So the French authorities are also slipping! They persecute their own protesters in the best traditions of the Sashiks, who showed their true colors in suppressing the fighters against the dominance of Walt Street. Well it is undemocratic and uncivilized to pour water over the French in winter! Yes, and poisoning them with gases, simultaneously beating and rolling them around the jail. Macron = Hitler! Hands off "they are children"! It's time for the world community to impose sanctions against French totalitarianism !!!
    Something bore me like a State Department mongrel.
