Russian Aerospace Forces responded to the death of a general in Syria

73

Over the past few days, the forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces have inflicted a series of strikes on the positions and objects of the terrorist group "Islamic State" banned in the Russian Federation. As reported news agency Al Masdar News, most of the bombing took place in the desert region of Badia al-Sham in Deir ez-Zor province, where the remnants of IS militants are based.


In addition, a joint strike by the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Air Force was launched on ISIS positions in the province of Homs, near the border of the province of Deir ez-Zor.

It is assumed that the intensification of actions of the Russian military is associated with the revival of the activity of militants in the center and in the east of Syria, as well as with the death of Major General Vyacheslav Gladkikh as a result of a mine explosion.

Doctor historical Sci. and military analyst Qalaat al-Madik on his Twitter page said that an improvised explosive device had been found and defused in the Daraa province in southern Syria. The presence of a suicide vest indicates the involvement of ISIS fighters in the hidden objects.

That night, there was an explosion on the Arab Gas Pipeline, which runs from Egypt to Jordan and Syria. The accident happened in the section between the settlements of Dumayr and Adra to the north-west of Damascus. Syrian Oil and Mineral Resources Minister Ali Ghanema told reporters of the SANA news agency that the explosion was a terrorist attack and led to a power outage.

A fire occurred at the scene of the accident, which was captured on video. Soon the fire was extinguished.

              To see the result, compare the balance of power in Syria for September 2015 and 2020.

      It is necessary to avenge the general. The main thing is not to repeat mistakes in the future and to be careful on the front line. There must be precautions. War, after all.
      Another Bayraktar was shot down by the Shell.
      A few hours ago, the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 attack unmanned aerial vehicle, which coordinated the artillery strikes of the jihadists controlled by Ankara, was successfully shot down by the Syrian air defense complex, namely Pantsir-S air defense missile system.

      According to the source of the information resource Avia.pro, the Turkish multipurpose attack unmanned aerial vehicle illegally invaded Syrian airspace, however. at the same time, the drone was used in order to coordinate the attacks of the jihadists on the positions of the SAA, in connection with which, it was decided to immediately destroy it.


      Remarkable is the fact that Turkey actively criticized the Russian Pantsir-S complexes, stating that they were destroyed by dozens of Turkish drones, both in Syria and Libya, however, the Turkish military was officially able to confirm only the destruction and capture of 6 complexes on the territory of Libya, the current Turkish UAV destroyed by "Pantsir" is an excellent confirmation of Turkish propaganda, which has nothing to do with reality.

      Well, firstly, there are no areas under the direct control of ultra-radical jihadists in Syria (meaning a = k and u), only hidden cells are functioning, i.e. there are no large-scale targets per se. Secondly, who exactly was involved in the death of our general is still unknown (when the head car of his convoy was blown up, for some reason he just went forward to the place of the explosion, without the accompaniment of sappers, accompanied by a Syrian general and only 3 guards, and his guard accidentally stepped on an explosive device).

        it is a moral and ethical issue that is not raised in war. In war there is a question of expediency. Killing their families so that they stop killing ours is a perfectly reasonable approach. And rational. They understand nothing but fear and the threat of death.

          In response, they will kill even more of ours. There is no more fierce enemy than an enemy motivated to take revenge for the family. In the Second World War, ardent enemies of the Soviet government were included in the struggle on its side with personal motivation, as a result of the atrocities of the Nazis and their henchmen.

    Look, when a strike on Israel (there are small fractions), an air strike is immediately made on the housing of this leader, regardless of the presence of women and children.
    That is, the intelligence of the Jews already knows where and who.

    What is this anyway - a series of beats like
    the answer to undermining our people? Yes them now
    you need to hammer every day from morning to evening
    without weekends and interruptions for lunch, while everyone
    these trash won't start crawling there with
    kicked out and eat their own
    excreta! Including the Turks as
    you should be shocked so as not to feed
    all these bastards! After all, how well it started
    five years ago, a high-class reputation
    earned, but as they slowed down, they began
    all these responses to receive ...

    It is necessary to hit these dushmans in an adult way.
    But the question torments me. if true. that our general, a military man. without sapper reconnaissance, leaves the armored personnel carrier and walks along the cars in unchecked terrain? It's like - Russian Maybe?

    If this is NATO, then why are they bombing the Barmaley?


    NATO is too thin to bomb otherwise it would have been bombed ..

    Just kidding .... What are you suggesting to start a nuclear war?

    Over the past few days, the forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces have inflicted a series of strikes on the positions and objects of the terrorist group "Islamic State" banned in the Russian Federation.

    How did they answer: that the special forces blew up the headquarters with the top leadership of the militants. What did they bomb there?

    It is necessary to destroy the barmaley before, and after the fight why wave his fists? Yes, and it is not necessary to beat pawns, but at the centers of decision-making, that is, at the headquarters.

    Unconvincing. Crumble stones with remnants of ISIS in the desert to replace the general.
    You would think when you write fried headlines.

    I would like to note the remarkable success of the Aerospace Forces in Syria! Yes, well done, they know how when necessary!

    But! Why is it necessary to lose military officers and generals for this? It's a pity, it's just hard to look at this ...

    And, most importantly, why do our patrols drive BTR-82, Tigers, weakly protected from explosions?
    Wouldn't those Kurgan people and other Lynxes or Boomerangs give? About which they talk periodically ... (I understand that you don't need to interfere with a bunch of them, part on wheels and part on tracks, of different weight and class - but everything is better!)

    Americans, Turks on MRAP (mine resistant ambush protected - with mine and anti-ambush protection), their whole class of such machines from "partners". We also have ...
    Give the guys a technique ... And there will be fewer casualties overall. And I'm not just talking about this case, but in general.

    And in order to bury the barmaley in the sand, you can find a nicer reason ... Than the death of generals!

    For every shell-shocked private, one must retaliate, and only for murder ...
    These "barmaley" understand and respect only strength! If with them "in an amicable way" they perceive it as weakness! So what kind of scruff and "muzzle on the table a couple of times to the blood", and then ask: "Got it? !!!" fool

    And this is all our mineral is worth? yes It was necessary to demolish at least one base of the Americans, because it was not without their help that sabotage was committed
