Syrian air strikes thwarted militant offensive in Idlib province


Syrian Arab Republic reports that aviation SAR delivered a powerful airstrike on militant positions in Idlib province. The positions of militants in the eastern part of the province were bombarded.


The most intense airstrikes were inflicted on positions and infrastructure of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group (the former Jebhat al-Nusra was banned in the Russian Federation). These are the environs of the city of Maaret al-Nuuman and the adjacent territories to the M5 highway. This highway connects Aleppo and Hama, passing through the territory of Idlib province.

According to recent reports, Syrian Air Force planes took off from the Abu Duhur air base, which is located east of the territories currently controlled by the militants. Militants suffered significant damage. The number of liquidated terrorists has not yet been reported.


At the same time, it became known that the air strikes were carried out after the jihadists of this group tried to attack the positions of the Syrian government army. The reports state that the militants used barreled artillery and mortars, firing from the eastern outskirts of Maaret al-Nuuman towards the settlement of Dzhanjanaz, which is controlled by the SAA.

This exacerbation is particularly noteworthy due to the fact that only a few hours remain before the entry into force of the next ceasefire. The regime will take effect on January 12. According to some reports, Turkey insisted on the introduction of such a regime in Idlib, the observation posts of the armed forces of which are located in the territory of this Syrian province. The militants probably tried to take advantage of these agreements and, several hours before their entry into force, decided to attack the positions of the SAA and advance as deep as possible. But the SAR Air Force thwarted the advance of terrorists eastward.

The other day, Vladimir Putin held his meeting with a Turkish colleague in Istanbul. Before that, the Russian president visited Damascus, where he met with Bashar Assad.

          For almost nine years, militants have been fighting in Syria. Nine years old, Karl! The airborne forces and air forces of the SAR strike, destroy strongholds, depots, and the weapons and ammunition of the barmalei do not end there. Straight miracles are wonderful!

              I would like to hear at least one clever thing about cutting off sources of financing and arms supplies to warring factions in Syria. But no, mega-specialists tell me some abstract banal zaum, like, "end, how to stop financing." And spring will come when winter passes. It’s clear, clear.

            Even the Soviet Union, after WWII, fought for a very long time and caught all kinds of forest brothers and Bandera, and it didn’t seem to destroy everyone. And Chechnya, how long the war has ended, but no, it’s blocking, catching and destroying someone.

          What does the USA have to do with it? Completely IS (and Islamism in BV as a whole) is almost impossible to defeat, because for this it is necessary that the Arabs sharply grow wiser and begin to control their religiosity. IS has long had no permanent territories in Syria and Iraq, but there remained a bunch of their supporters, disguising themselves as civilians, and sleeping cells.

        And what is wrong?
        You are able to translate the abbreviation ISIS! Here in it the letter "G" means "State" i.e. education with all the attributes that are inherent in the state - the head school, ministers with ministries, the army, the court, the financial and tax system, its own monetary unit, etc. So they destroyed this very "quasi-state." And the fact that they are now driving around the desert is Khayyat-Tahrir al-Sham (the former Jabhat-en-Nusra has replaced the old flag with a new one), to say nothing of ISIS.

        Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at the Fifth Meeting of ASEAN Defense Ministers and dialogue partners said that for three years of the participation of the Russian air forces in the hostilities in Syria, the gangs of ISIS militants were almost completely defeated*.

        According to him, during the operation 87,5 thousand militants were destroyed, and 1411 settlements were liberated, that is, more than 95% of the territory of the SAR. Shoigu emphasized that key settlements were liberated and "main communications were released."

      nobody helped us

      And no one really helped us ?? Nothing that 2/3 of the Luftwaffe fought on the western front? were the German and Italian Navy locked in bases? That a month later, after the attack on the USSR, the British overthrew the Iranian government and the first Lend-Lease went through it. And who supplied us with high-octane gasoline, and molybdenum for armor, and a bunch of equipment. And if the Americans had not clashed with the Japanes, who would have removed the combat-ready Eastern divisions?
      P.S. Definitely, we defeated all of them ... all at once and with one hand. And there was neither Kharkov, nor 800 thousand prisoners, nor Smolensk, more than a million killed ..

          Grandfather, is there anything to argue about the case, or the old Komsomol brains from oak? impenetrable?
          if the British and Americans did not demolish factories under packs of 700 Lancaster each, then panthers would go to the front for 500 units a month rather than 50. so clear, or even chew? if the British did not take Rommel out of Africa, then the countries would have an oil axis in bulk, not just Romanians and synthetics. The Americans drowned the Kriegsmarine like kittens, otherwise, all 800 built German submarines would have taken up convoys, and the USSR would be in complete blockade.
          there is nothing to appeal to admins, you need to have your own head. look at least graphically, if you can’t imagine at what lines at the end of the 41st year the Red Army. and what are her prospects! she herself rose to her feet, despite the loss of almost all aviation and BTT and the evacuation of factories.

            Well, there was nothing to do.
            It was just necessary in 1941 to the British / Americans to land in Germany and crush the enemy in the general battle of a la Kursk. Because this whole hutspa of yours is just nasty. To speak as you are (if we draw an analogy) as if after a duel in which a formidable opponent was killed, a woman with low social responsibility would proudly declare that it was she who defeated the enemy, and not the one who really defeated him, since she spent the night with him in bed and this exhausted his strength .....

              Do not carry nonsense, a man with increased social activity. in 1941, neither the United States nor Britain had any competitive tanks (especially the United States) nor a ground army as a whole. where to land? to die beautifully? they had aviation and navy, and they fought to the best of their ability. Stalin would do the same in their place. as soon as American industry embarked on a war footing, competitive Shermans appeared with 75 and 76 mm guns, a normal land appeared, they landed, without throwing people into loopholes with bare backs, but without cowardice.
              and before Normandy they helped as they could. equipment that died in battle was not paid. something we quickly forgot about it. and somehow the best friends became enemies. but the French frogs, who fought for 40 days, and then donated all the equipment to the Germans, how respected ... they carried this Neman in their arms.
              ps look at the loss of the Yankees and Mzungu in the Second World War .. they not only sat on their islands.

                Rzhu to tears - only a person with God's chosen thinking could write such nonsense.
                Britain in 1939 is a superpower of the time. And at that time it had the most advanced army and navy. If Germany began the development of military equipment - having its economy in full touch (after reparations), then what prevented Britain from doing the same, having an incomparably more powerful economy? Where did the analysts look?
                It is as if Iran would now attack the United States (continent) and defeat it, and the United States would justify themselves in revenge - they say we did not transfer the industry to military tracks ....

                  it's good, just not crying. I can't stand the tears.
                  What advanced army did Britain have? the expeditionary force that merged from France, or the one that later suffered defeat after defeat from Rommel? fleet yes, it was. Bismarck and Count Spee will not be allowed to lie. Yes, and the Italians also did not gird. Well, until 1940, the states did not know what tanks were. I repeat, the landing in 1941 is suicide. no air, no land, only they themselves fled from France. not a single normal military commander would go for it, especially why? Save Tips?
                  as soon as the situation became real, landed. and also fought.
                  Britain in 1939 is a superpower of the time

                  but here you can neighing. Britain alone could not cope even with Japan, neither on land, nor in air, nor at sea. The only "over" is the states. After the industry got on the rails ... Liberty transport in a couple of days, a destroyer in a month, and 22 Hornets .. no one could do it ... and 44000 Shermanov.

        Allied help was. But,

        that 2/3 of the Luftwaffe fought on the western front
        This is when so many Luftwaffe fought on the western front? In 1941? In 1942? Q1943?
        Of the 123 dead aces of the Luftwaffe during the entire war (1939-1945), 72 died on the eastern front.

        German and Italian Navy were locked at the bases
        The Italians fleet was locked geography. The German Navy seemed to stoke convoys of the Allies.

        the British overthrew the Iranian government and through it went the first Lend-Lease
        So there the British were not alone, the troops of the USSR were also in Iran.

        supplied high-octane gasoline, and molybdenum for armor, and a bunch of equipment
        Selling raw materials, equipment to the warring parties is a profitable business.

        the Americans did not clash with the japanes
        So it seems, officially, the Japanese attacked the Americans, and not vice versa. So, thanks should be given not to the Americans, but to the Japanese ("they didn’t want to get a higher education")

        "PS. Definitely, we all defeated ... all at once and with one hand.
        I do not know such haters.

        "And there was neither Kharkov, nor 800 thousand prisoners, nor Smolensk, more than a million killed .."
        At least once a year, in May, MILLIONS of those who died in the war recall.

        Maxim, you reason correctly, but incorrectly! Regarding the British - a separate conversation because they betrayed their French allies, from the first days of the war, without coming to their aid, they allowed the capture of French ships in their ports, etc. .. Lend lease was, by and large, a commercial deal , which allowed the states to become one of the leading countries in the world and participate in its post-war section. Of course, this helped us win the war, but if you think that without it we would have lost it, you are mistaken!

          that they betrayed their allies to the French, from the first days of the war, without coming to their aid, allowed to capture French ships in their ports, etc.

          Maybe on the contrary, the frogs surrendered so quickly that the bobby barely took their feet.
          And on ships, who, of normal people, will let the Germans seize warships? Including three almost finished battleships. Given them, plus the Italians the Germans in the Mediterranean would have adequate forces to resist the British. Therefore, the ports were bombed.
          P.S. And the French themselves surrendered, not the fact that the English corps would have rescued them, but they could have fought. One of the strongest European armies, like the Czech one.

      The Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Air Force have been delivering massive attacks on communications and militant positions for almost two days in the areas of the cities of Kafr-Nabud, Khan-Sheikhun, Serakib and in the vicinity of other military units in the provinces of Hama and Idlib.

        It looks like preparing for a major offensive. Turks have taken many fighters to Libya. It's time to clear the M5.

          If you want to ask a question, formulate it correctly! For such a statement, at least a link is needed! I had to train Arab citizens in our military equipment. With the exception of the language barrier, there were no difficulties. People are the same everywhere! soldier

            I have these cons in a drum))) And it was not a question, but a statement. The question mark at the end of the sentence is a trick so as not to offend someone)))

                The interrogative sentence looks softer, that's why I used the interrogative sentence in order to veil my statement in this way)) And I have nothing to excuse you for, you are conducting the dialogue correctly enough.

    Syrian air strikes thwarted militant offensive in Idlib province

    Where did these fighters in Syria come from? They (from 3:01) long ago decided all:

    Last December, the third year went ...
    Some strange goal, which should justify the means ...
    This is most likely the result of "agreements", "informing partners and coordinating with them air corridors" and "a sluggish expression of concern about the presence of US troops in Syrian territory" ...

        Why should I feel sorry for him? Nobody pulls his tongue. And in Russia it is accepted as follows:
        "A man said a man did" ...
        And all these meme-kanyas and grunts - to Mikhan, he loves to insert the wise "hehe" in a topical statement.

    reports come that the ATS aircraft launched a powerful airstrike on militant positions

    Today, probably Israel has already launched an air strike against Syria from Sydney, this is already a tradition hehe
