300 Spartans fought a month, and 300 Syrian special forces stood for three years

128
A few years ago I wrote about the heroic defense of an air base in Syria. According to the militants, the base was originally defended by a special forces battalion, only about 300 people (according to our data, several officers were trained in Russia and Belarus).

300 Spartans fought a month, and 300 Syrian special forces stood for three years


In the photo: defenders of the airbase, soldiers and officers of the second regiment of special forces of Syria.

For three years now, Syrian special forces have been defending the base, fighting in complete surroundings.

The first attempt to take the base was made by the Syrian Free Army 30 on April 2013. They managed to break through the outer perimeter of the base, but the attack was repelled. This was the first assault on the Air Force base during the Syrian war.



The five-kilometer perimeter of the base was strengthened, but to protect it seemed an almost impossible task - without the dominant structures and heights.

All the villages in the area were demolished by the rebels.

13 fortified hangars were turned into strong points of defense. They were installed heavy machine guns and ATGM.

The presence of these fortified shelters played a major role in the survival of the base.

Several played a role tanks and armored personnel carriers, which played the role of quick reaction forces, and transferred to critical points during attacks.



During the battles, the base’s defenders managed to repel several tanks from Jabhat al-Nusra and the tribes that had fled from the Deir ez-Zur from the Islamic State and took part in the siege.



Fully aware of the inevitable downfall of the base and showing unusual tactical prudence for it, the Air Force commanders withdrew several MiG-21 and MiG-23 from the base, which were in working condition at the Hama Air Force base.

The impressive trophies shown by the rebels are the remains of 19 aircraft, which in reality stopped flying 10-15 years ago.



Abu ad-Dukhur was completely cut off from the main forces of the Syrian army, the supply was carried out by air on the An-26 and Mi-8. During the siege of the base several helicopters were shot down, one An-26 and 2 MiG-21.

According to the militants themselves, first flew to the base aviation and attacked the adjacent potentially dangerous and identified clusters of militants near the base, and then helicopters came up and went to land.

In recent weeks, the supply base has to carry out the dumping of supplies on parachutes. The base is shot through by snipers and 23-mm guns. Collecting landed loads is extremely difficult. It is hardest for the wounded: the militants smashed buildings from heavy weapons, fires raged, and you cannot evacuate the victims.

The storming of Abu ad-Dukhur coincided with a giant dust storm that hit the Middle East.

But a handful of soldiers stubbornly held contrary to all calculations. The defenders retreated inside the perimeter, but did not run and did not lay down weapon. Being in a desperate situation, they called the fire of their artillery directly on themselves!

At that moment, the fate of the base and the entire 3-year defense was decided. On the account was every person capable of holding a weapon.


Because of the sandstorm, the Syrian air force could not make sorties in support of the defenders of the base.



Thanks to direct military assistance from the United States, terrorists received anti-tank missile systems Konkurs capable of hitting targets with guided missiles from a distance of 4 kilometers.

Almost from impunity, the militants confidently hit the last tanks of the defenders and destroyed the defenses in the buildings. The shelling went day and night.

Large fires broke out at the base, depots with fuel and ammunition exploded. The situation became desperate, but the defenders still held.

In any case, the extreme depletion of defenders (after all, the continuous attacks of the militants lasted three days), the continuous shelling and quantitative superiority of the attackers predetermined the fate of the base, the balance of forces was 1 to 80.

Most of the soldiers who defended the base died.



Survivors and wounded, who could move, let the militants to 30 meters, threw grenades and went on a breakthrough through the chains of the attackers.

The base commander, General Insan az-Zuhuri, led the breakthrough of the survivors and died in a fierce melee.


A small group (numbering up to 40 people) managed to break into the territory controlled by the Syrian army.

PS I remember how at the end of the 80s of the last century we took "final examinations" from Syrian special forces officers at the proving ground in the Crimea.

On the last day we set the tables, because Tomorrow the Syrians sailed away from Sevastopol home. And now, after the third, on a smoke break, the Syrian, whose name was Farid, said to me: "You Russians are an amazing people, you don't care much, but you are probably the only people in the world who don’t die!"

Only in the Russian language there is such a thing as "stand to death".

As the saying goes, with whom you lead, from this and pick up.

So the Syrians who studied with us stood to death!

          Of course, it may be so. But to what extent it is not the originality and stupidity of the propaganda machine that surprises me. After all, it was already last year, "300 riflemen", everyone probably knows how it ended. The analogy is not good. what

              Why so sure that they could not keep Slavyansk? Firstly, according to the evidence of the Bandera themselves, if it were not for the Strelkovsky dump, they would not be able to take Slavyansk for many months. Secondly, if surrendering a third of the territory of the DPR (and not just Slavyansk), approaching the junta to Donetsk at a direct fire distance, throw the militia families in Slavyansk to tear to punishment and much more to be considered a task, then we can only ask who and what set the task!
              It is amazing how, after more than a year after these tragic events, when everything is already clear, there are people who consider the monstrous betrayal of heroism?

This is a monstrous betrayal. The entry of Strelkov’s detachment to Donetsk prevented this. Stop lying to Strelkov, gentlemen of Surkov.

And then these people live among people as proud lions, and do not hide their eyes like cowardly cockroaches. We have a governor now, though not the most successful, but trying, Bocharov Andrei Ivanovich, among other things, Hero of Russia. And he got a star for causing fire to himself and his fighters went hand to hand to the militants in Chechnya. He saved his soldiers and the militants were crushed quite a few. The people in the region learned about his feat and he won the election right away. In addition, he does not take bribes - everyone knows this and puts corrupt officials in jail constantly. And he forbade spending a million dollars on corporate events to the regional government, he put three thousand on a table of his own and ordered them to drop off their salaries for parties, and not from the budget.

      The Islamic Front (several groups) and Nusra take the base and now the last enclave of the Army - Foix and Kerfay in Idlib. The nearest positions of the IG for hundreds of kilometers from those places ...

          How much do you think potatoes should cost? This I ask the question so that, in case of a market in his town near Moscow, ask the seller why he drives me potatoes for 25 rubles, and does not pay extra for me to take it from him. Everything has a price, and war too. They left Afghanistan, abandoned the Afghans, I think so. So what? Do you have syringes there in the Urals in the morning, when you go to work, are not scattered under your feet? And we often stumble upon those used by night addicts. Because the Americans took our place in Afghanistan and began to grow opium poppy in an industrial way and drive it to Russia and through Russia.

Let it be oligarchic, albeit robbed, but OWN. So everything is fixable. But this state needs to be defended, and in Syria, right now. Then, when the US masters form a united front of pseudo-Islamic fanatics from Morocco to Pakistan, then it will be too late. Both we and our children will shed blood on the Caucasian and Central Asian fronts. You have to think with your head, and not with anything.

      The controlled territory itself is in a semicircle and the soldiers there are, to put it mildly, not enough. Everyone counts. A strike without aviation support will be doomed to heavy losses, and most likely a complete collapse. Mine war, detouring advancing to hit them in the rear, an ambush is a horse of the broads. Especially from there were a lot of tanks and artillery.

      And the 500 thousandth army has long shrunk to much more modest numbers. There 3 year war is coming. And irreplaceable human losses excluding immigration more than in the USSR in the Second World War on May 1945, as a percentage of the population + migration. Only in 45 was the mood a little bit more and we’ll take Hitler to Moscow in a cage, but in Syria everything was October-November 1941 ...

      Even according to the most conservative estimates, Syria had an army of 300 thousand. At the very beginning, 30% L / C defected from there, taking into account the intensity of the fighting, as well as their characteristics.

But you need to understand that ordinary Americans themselves are very interesting people, with their own culture and traditions. I will give an example from the life of a friend of mine, who went to the USA for an internship while studying at the university, and she stayed there. One winter, she was driving her car to work. There was a strong snowstorm and her janitors refused. Fortunately, a snowplow was passing by. Learning about the trouble of the girl, the driver helped her get to work.

    Yes, dear, it only leads to sad thoughts, where was Moscow’s help? Did everyone try contracts, but couldn’t help be done without contracts? We had to wait until Damascus and many more questions. For too long, our leadership thinks, maybe I'm wrong

    Alas ... the last defenders of the air base died ..
    Islamist militants executed 56 members of the Syrian government’s army at the Abu al-Duhur military airdrome in Idlib province, northwest of the country, captured by militants, the Syrian Human Rights Monitoring Center said.

    You know, sometimes you read comments with a complicated feeling - as the Shtatovs live with the illusions of their exclusivity, some forum users shout that the Russians are the most ...
    It seems to me that in every nation there are heroes and traitors.
    And then few military Syrians deserted ...
    And then the Russians did not give up in Afghanistan or Chechnya ...
    These guys to the end have fulfilled their oath, the eternal memory of the people.
    The Syrians are very hard right now. The army is tired. It has shrunk by several times and is forced to defend key positions, holding militants on the approaches or on the outskirts of strategically important cities. There are simply no forces for large operations. Tactical successes do not count; they will not do the weather. To win, you need to take Racca and close the borders around the perimeter. At this stage, these are unrealistic tasks. There is no power even for the liberation of the Duma, a suburb of Damascus. without global assistance, Assad’s fall was possible within 3-4 weeks. Thank God our help arrived in time. But this is not a radical change. The events of the next month or two will show where the pendulum swung.

      At this stage, offensive action is unlikely. Now we need to destroy the material and technical base of the militants and reduce the population of fanatics. Zealots are again IG. If you have not advanced a meter, but destroyed 100 fanatics, this is already progress. It is clear that this requires aviation, and satellite intelligence data.

    Well done Syrian fighters,

    Of course, it may be so. But to what extent it is not the originality and stupidity of the propaganda machine that surprises me. After all, it was already last year, "300 riflemen", everyone probably knows how it ended. The analogy is not good. what

    ================================================== ==============================

    You are strange, some kind of ... a loser, or what? .. And then "propaganda", when everyone decides for himself such questions. Yes, you wrote it yourself, only in the impulse to crow something, ... orrrrrriginal, did not notice it. :)) That is, when our group, back in 1985, "took" control of the Kajaki power station, "technically" blocking all approaches to it, except for "big water", we mean "fought for communism all over the world and sang a hymn every morning in unison "? :))

    There are no other options besides military assistance. The transfer of our military is nonsense. The solution is to attract Iranian special forces, it is faster, and the distance is small. Iranians have good training, and subtle religious issues are completely solvable. Here our politicians and leaders need to understand.
    Well, if there are volunteers, then this is not a question of the Russian government.
    Advice to all commentators: Emotions and desolation about children are alien to the logic of war. If we lose, more than one generation will have enough blood and adversity. Today in the Middle East, the future of our South and Southeast, Caucasus is being decided. Mattress kneads cool.
    I apologize to those who do not think so, but ours and the former republics of the Union. IMHO.

    I would also like to add that Libya mediocrely missed out on it. You can argue about her how they lived there under Gaddafi, but let someone say that it’s bad for the country in this region. Most importantly, they lived, not fought.
    A repetition of this with Syria is a betrayal.

    It says the Russian press is not free ... but I assure you that in the West it is much less, at least in the press masses!

    Thanks for pointing out their sacrifice ..

    [quote=Yuryevich]Everything got mixed up in the “Danish kingdom”; they took over the Donetsk airport for a year, kneaded their bros into a mess, and put their own people there. You will say this is politics and they are not our brothers, but I will answer you - the Arab is not my brother, but the crest bro and the Belarusian bro. We are all descendants of a great nation, we have the most powerful history. We approach the Arabs and run into sanctions. Over the years, they drained all the allies while the eggs licked the pin to sleep. During the exercises there are only BTR-80s and BMP-1s, there are 8 more Soviet cows in the sky, where are these fat gentlemen from the Kremlin taking us? And most importantly, why? What were they threatening us with? All these multi-steps of politicians are needed so that the electorate, that is, you and I, can powder our eyes and brains, Gabon 2, if not cooler, to pour new weapons into the east without having them in our arsenal ourselves. It’s a pity for the people, people honestly trust the authorities, and the authorities honestly have these people, and most importantly, there is no idea, even Gabon has the idea of ​​joining the EU, but we are only crap and it feels like it’s on ourselves. Gentlemen, what kind of state are we building? Maybe someone knows where we are going?[/quote You're downvoting in vain. In many ways, Yuryevich is right. And the mess in Syria is a gas issue. And it would be high time to get off the oil needle and develop industry. Otherwise, like brainless lackeys, we applaud the one who has seen the light 15 years later with his “import substitution” and don’t ask what he was thinking about before.

    The Syrians learned military science well and from good teachers. So they lasted. There is a core in everyone who loves the Motherland, and he will fight for the Motherland until his last breath. Viva Syria.
