At least 30 strikes in a few hours: It is reported about the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the central part of Syria

75

From the central part of Syria, there are reports on the use of Russian military aviation against the infrastructure of the militants of the terrorist organization ISIS, banned in Russia. The reports say that Russian bombers are striking one of the largest zones of control of ISIS, which is located on the territory of two provinces at once - Hama and Raqqa.


If you believe the reports coming from Syria, then Russian planes in the last few hours alone have inflicted at least three dozen strikes on the accumulation of terrorists and their infrastructure in the mentioned region. Earlier, it was from these territories, as well as from the zone of activity in the Al-Sukhna region in the province of Homs, that ISIS fighters tried to attack the positions of the Syrian troops in the Palmyra region. Recall that once the militants have already managed to recapture positions from the SAA near Palmyra. It was only thanks to the actions of the Russian military that Palmyra was again taken under full control.

Now the bomber aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces is making every effort to put an end to the ISIS activity in the central and eastern parts of the SAR - as part of the ongoing operation.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has not yet commented on this data.

Earlier in the Western media, after news of the tests of the Su-57 with hypersonic missiles on board, it was suggested that Russian fifth-generation fighters could reappear in Syria - for the next phase of testing against real targets, including against fortified areas of ISIS ...

Against this background, there are reports that pro-Turkish armed groups, for the first time in a long time, used artillery against the country's government forces. According to the latest reports, the militants are using artillery when striking the positions of the SAA in the area of ​​the city of Maarat al-Naasan, north of Seraqib.

At least 30 strikes in a few hours: It is reported about the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the central part of Syria


Armed groups are trying to take control of Highway 60, which connects Idlib and Aleppo. An oil pipeline runs along this road, the main part of which is currently controlled by the Syrian government army.

    Without infantry and tanks, the territory cannot be recaptured and held! Videoconferencing is great, but the law of war cannot be canceled.

      Our PMCs were withdrawn from the central part of Syria. The CAA does not have the power to control this territory, so ISIS has stepped up and began to seize areas.
      The situation for now:

      For comparison, the situation as of January 1, 2021.

        The gray areas on the map only symbolically denote ISIS control in the large desert, until January 1, in place of the newly appeared areas, there was also their activity, and they ran into Abu Kemal in the south. Do not feed the administrator of this map with bread - just let me draw new territories beyond Assad's control and the loss of the CAA.

        PMCs are a very convenient tool for carrying out provocations on the Internet. To proclaim their presence in the Donbas or in Syria, no objective data is needed: satellite images, etc. A couple of staged pictures and comments of any "authoritative" experts are enough. As a result, it turns out as in a joke. Do you see the squirrel? Not. And I can't see. And she is.
        It is difficult to imagine a more inconvenient method for the Russian leadership to conduct hostilities on the territory of another state. Even a single death of employees of a mythical PMC abroad would in fact be such a headache, such a setup for the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. And if it was about dozens of dead "civilians" in Syria, the resonance on the Internet would be thousands of times stronger than Navalny's videos about Dimon and the Sultan's palaces. In the age of social networks and instant messengers, you can't hide a sewing in a sack.
        Where are these PMCs? Hey!

            We copy the Anglo-American manner of holding the colonies. We keep our ruler and the capital. The rest do not care, we do not climb into the local showdown more than necessary. We do not feed the people, we do not build schools, hospitals and factories (well, we "speak and show" just in case that we are benefactors).
            In short, the interests of the Russian Federation come first. Have you noticed that we do not even touch the Jews there and do not scold them?
            Much like the Americans in Afghanistan. The Kabul government is also protecting their airfield. A minimum of funds, and the result is "all over the face".

        Arranges. There is, as it were, a real external enemy, the leadership of the Russian Federation is trying to raise its international prestige and show that someone supposedly reckons with them, used to distract attention from internal problems, now the majority are on the drum, and many have realized that they are fighting there by no means threatening terrorists RF. In general, they solve their problems, and they also give servicemen some extra money.

          Najibullah held out without the support of our troops for three years. He would have lasted longer if Gorbachev had not betrayed his former allies completely, by conspiring with the United States to stop supplying food, fuel and ammunition to Afghanistan since January 1992. Even without these supplies, the abandoned Najibullah held Kabul for another 4 months. Four years later, he died a martyr's death at the hands of the Taliban, who seized power from the previous victors. Let the names of traitors be damned for centuries.

We all have to fight sometime in order to defend what is dear to us. And if Najibullah had immediately folded his pens, he would have been torn to pieces by fundamentalists immediately back in 1989. Both you and I apparently have our own established views about honor and duty, about betrayal, so I consider further speculation of obvious concepts a waste of time.
                  PS And one more fact, the government troops of Najibullah constrained the activity of the opposition inside Afghanistan for three years. Thereby, they restrained the spread of this activity northward to Tajikistan and beyond.

    And it was not necessary to conclude agreements with the terrorists, driving them buses, and taking them to another place in Syria, and even then, a couple of years ago, simply to destroy them! This is where both ubpla and kamikaze drones are needed, which are cheaper than bombing from manned aircraft.

    1. The recruitment, training, financing or other material support of a mercenary, as well as its use in armed conflict or military operations -

    is punished by imprisonment for the term from four up to eight years with restriction of freedom for up to two years or without it.

      Recruitment, training, financing or other material support of the mercenary
      this is if he or he was identified as a mercenary .., and so for a company providing commercial services in the field of protection of a crisis business, with freelancers (ichtamnets) in place of that very crisis business .. everything is normal !!! wink

        In general, this is a worldwide practice. Where the official army, for various reasons, is undesirable to appear, mercenaries are used.

        And the law is so that everyone who wishes does not start his own army. There is already possible criminal prosecution and a term. In general, to keep everything under control.

      This is not "that opera": an ordinary security company that has a certificate for this type of activity and has the right to issue permits for employees to carry and use weapons.
      You are reading in the wrong place. laughing fool

        The security company simply does not have permission to carry and use military military weapons. The same AK and RGD are prohibited from having private security companies. And with a Berdan gun and a gas canister you can't do much.

    The outflow of the population of Syria, and the decline, is great!
    Not soon, the situation, at least somehow stabilized.

    It turned out like with the Ukrainian army near Mariupol.

    And yet it is better to come to an agreement, in both cases it was possible, in the first case, the disarmament of the militants, in the second, the withdrawal of the Armed Forces of Ukraine outside the DPR and DPR, well, they would somehow figure it out with the Bandera people. It's just that politicians betrayed the military

    Well, I understood, if only there was no record in the work book that he was a mercenary. Then it's okay.

    The barmaley will be bombed, and then parliamentarians will arrive, again with a proposal to return to the jurisdiction of Assad ...
    Those who do not want to, will bomb again.

      But please note that with each blow, the number of barmaley decreases and decreases, and the number 30 in the number of blows ... I wonder if it is related to the number of pieces of silver?)

    30 hits.
    Teks, squadron 10-12 c-com. Ie one regiment departure.
    And what is the cimus?
    In the exercises Zapad-81 on the training ground, the regiment practiced 120 strikes, well, +/-.

      Not 30 sorties, but 30 air strikes ... i.e. in a maximum of 4 sides, each slightly.

    How much does an hour of flight or the cost of one strike cost and why should I pay for an air force operation in a foreign country?

      This is called international assistance in order to avoid the appearance of barmaley in Russian territories, Antosha: and this is the fate of every darned liberal - bear with me, dear, laughing

    To improve the types of weapons, a training ground is needed - Syria, this is what you need.
