It is reported about the missile attack on the US base in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor and the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Idlib

From Syria, there are reports of the first operation in a long time conducted by the Russian Aerospace Forces in the northwest of the country. According to Syrian news sources, as well as the information resource AMN (Lebanon).


The materials say that aviation The attacks were carried out in the western part of Idlib province, where large forces of militants of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham group (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, a terrorist group banned in Russia) are concentrated.

The Lebanese press writes that the airstrike followed an explosion on the route of a joint Turkish-Russian patrol. Recall that a Turkish armored car was blown up, following in a convoy along a highway connecting Aleppo with the Mediterranean coast of the SAR. According to other sources, it was not about detonating an explosive device, but about an attack using a grenade launcher.

According to reports from northwestern Idlib, Russian air forces attacked Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and their allies' positions in western Idlib province on Tuesday.

Some time ago, reports began to come from Syria about missile attacks on American military bases in the north-east of the country. In the publications, the authors claim that the shelling was carried out on American facilities, which they used as infrastructure for the protection of oil fields. The Americans use these fields for illegal oil production.

The attack was carried out against a base near the Konoko field (north of Deir ez-Zor province), controlled by a US contingent and Kurdish militias. This is the first attack on a US military facility in northeastern SAR since 2015.

It should be recalled that a Russian major general was killed in the province of Deir ez-Zor the day before, and two more servicemen were injured.

      It is reported about the missile attack on the US base in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor and the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Idlib

      In Idlib, militants shot down a UAV, which they initially tried to pass off as the Russian Orlan-10, but a detailed examination of the wreckage revealed that it was an American MQ-9 Reaper worth $ 15.
      It is not excluded that it was shot down either by the Turks or by Turkish "proxy-militants" with the help of Turkish MANPADS or more serious Turkish systems (the "Hok" air defense missile system, and the Turkish analogue of "Shilki" - "Korkut").

      Now there is a reason! A young handsome, promising guy - a military adviser with the rank of major general.
      Already 4 (!!!) of our generals died in Syria!

            There is officialdom. But there are no facts. This is me about the Jews. Unfortunately, there is simply no adequate information about the real situation in the confrontation between the air defense of Syria and the Israeli Air Force.
            It is also clear that if air defense wages a war on its own, it will always lose it. There are no exceptions.

              Ground air defense

              What else? Air defense aviation? So Syria still has a MiG-29/25. And Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria also had air defense and aviation, with hundreds. And Soviet advisers, and Soviet aviation and pilots, and where are they?
              PS: I am more worried about where the infa has gone from the Republic of Belarus, why should I read heresy like "Zamvoli against Petit", and then, excuse me, "expert" comments. In my opinion, what is now more important in the West of the Russian Federation

                Study the question as it was, eh! We did not fight for the Arabs. He is an advisor, he does not make a decision. Ask how many problems we have in Syria drew up when we tried to form several BtGr from the Syrians in accordance with our charters and instructions three years ago. And 50 years ago, exactly one IAP clashed with the Israeli Air Force and lost, after which Moscow chickened out. However, the three air defense missile systems covering Suez soon paid off. But that's not the point. The USSR got into a rotten situation without really understanding what we are actually dealing with. And why do we need it. There was no understanding. The outcome is predictable.

                  And for that. And then they died heroically. As well as many more advisers and fighters.

However, THIS is the Arabs from both sides are now clearly demonstrating ...

      Most likely this is the response of the Syrians to the Americans for the helicopter shelling of the Syrian checkpoint in Qamishli and the death of a soldier. The result, of course, turned out so-so.
