Afghan Tactics: Syrian military convoy ambushed on the Deir ez-Zor-Palmyra road

30

Syrian information sources provide information about the incident in the eastern province of SAR - Deir ez-Zor. The militants reportedly set up an ambush on the Deir ez-Zor-Palmira highway, a few dozen kilometers south-west of the oil fields.

According to the latest information, a convoy of the Syrian military was ambushed.

It is reported that 28 soldiers of the Syrian government army, which control these territories, have died.

An explosion thundered on the way near the military column. With the second explosion, the militants cut off the way in the opposite direction for the Syrian military convoy (the so-called "Afghan tactics"), after which heavy fire was opened.

In the materials coming from the Syrian Arab Republic, it is said that there are wounded as a result of the attack. This is at least 17 Syrian soldiers from the 4th SAA Ground Forces Division.

The road was mined by militants near the village of Kebajib. According to other sources, a bus or a truck exploded, which was at the side of the road - at the moment when the vanguard of a military convoy caught up with it.

It should be noted that, just a few kilometers south of Kebajib, there is a territory controlled by ISIS terrorists (a group banned in Russia) with an area of ​​several thousand square kilometers. In this regard, it is assumed that the ambush could have been arranged by the militants of this particular terrorist structure.

        They fought back judging by the fact that the wounded are being carried out.

    Why Afghan? This method has been used since centuries. Break the column, block the retreat, block the path.

      Quite right, this method has been known since the days of the Neanderthals. Is this how the Taliban are promoting?

        Then there were also columns with equipment? And yes, even in the 41st Kolobanov shot Germans near Leningrad from a tank. So he was trained in this.

      We did not travel by bus. The bus was parked on the side of the road with an explosive charge. Judging by the video, the link is above, provided by Insurgent, a mined bus that was parked on the side of the road blew up. Burnt or damaged equipment from the convoy of the SAR army is not observed there. The terrain allows you to get away from shelling on the side of the road in an SUV without any problems. So, it was not entirely "Afghan" tactics, it was more difficult there: "mountains to the left, a cliff to the right." It is clear that at the first moment there was a kind of stupor, and if the convoy consisted of jeeps-carts and trucks (pictured), it was not armored vehicles at all. So many victims were received during a sudden massive shelling. At least 17 wounded ... got off cheap.

          Yes, I copied and pasted it, and I did not insert everything. recourse But this does not change the sad result for the Syrians, or the fact that there could have been more victims. Thanks for correcting hi

      Take your words back. You did not see from your couch what we were driving around Donbass in 2014-15. The Syrians also have little equipment and fuel, and the bus eats less and takes more. And in a mine war, even in BMPs they move on horseback.

    Whoever can explain how they differ "Afghan tactics" и "the so-called" Afghan tactics "?
    And further. Was the defeat of the end car in the attacked convoy really invented by the Afghans after 1978, and before that no one had thought of that? Vague doubts plagued.

      Aviator wrote that this method has been known since the days of the Neanderthals Unfortunately, they left no written evidence, but there is no doubt that this tactic dates back to the days of the invention of the wheel. But the journalist had to create a loud headline. So now we read about the "Afghan tactics" hi

    Arabs are Arabs - everywhere laxity and indifference a la "Allah's will for everything." And where are the reconnaissance, outposts, drones ??? We drove like a parade. Even Soviet military experts noted similar features.

    It is strange that there are still such territories, but it is clear that there are hotter sections of the front ..

      Apart from the pitiful chunks of northern Idlib, still controlled by the Turks, at the moment the SAA no longer has "hot sections of the front". Apparently, IS is supported in this area by local tribes, otherwise they would simply have died corny without food and water. It is necessary to involve the Syrian secret services in resolving this issue, but during the years of the civil war, Mahubarat has lost personnel, skills and agents.

    Column escorting with turntables is no longer in vogue?
    Even if the turntable had been shot down, the column would have been warned and there would not have been so many casualties.

    No outposts open an ambush. It's my opinion. If you are smarter and experience more share experience. We will judge here, discuss, here are only professionals! Where to go to the poor peasant.

      Not a single outpost does not open an ambush.

      Yes. does not open, but allows an ambush to be counteracted. A patrol squad, a head marching outpost, a vanguard, a column of the main forces, etc. All these elements of the battle order must be present. Then it will not be possible to block the column, crush it with fire.

    Unfortunately, each such incident "increases the percentage of mistrust in Russian military advisers.
