Muallem stressed that at present only Russian specialists and experts are in Syria who help the Syrian military master new types of weapons supplied.

According to him, "neither Russia nor Iran does not interfere in the internal affairs of Syria." At the same time, the minister stressed that all states should participate in the fight against terrorism, and not just Iraq and Syria.

TASS notes that earlier the electronic version of the newspaper "Al-Diyar" reported about massive attacks on the positions of militants "Islamic State" (IG) in the province of Raqqa, which on Thursday struck the Syrian Air Force. As a result, a large number of Islamists, military equipment and vehicles were destroyed.

Also, aviation It was used in the vicinity of Palmyra in the area of ​​the Jezal oil field, where fierce fighting has been going on for several days.

In the southern city of Bosra al-Sham, Syrian helicopters attacked the militants headquarters at the very moment when a meeting was held with the participation of field commanders. As a result, 18 militants were killed.

The hottest point of the country is still the north-western front, where there are battles between government forces and the Islamic Jash al-Fatah coalition. According to military sources, in the area, Syrian aviation destroyed 19 militants.

      As everything went straight into the movement, the ambassador from the UN pinned to Damascus with a proposal for negotiations with the opposition "Geneva 3." But I just did not understand what kind of opposition this is, Alkaida al IG.
      But Russia has not even entered the war with the IG.

      The fact of the matter is that without Russian support Syria alone will not be able to cope with the Igilov plague. And the so-called coalition only imitates the struggle. Well, as for the fact that men are running instead of fighting, then I completely agree with you, this is not MUZHIK! This also applies to Khokhlyat runners.

              .... A little trouble wink ..... Here is my answer about pathos: ".... Yazidi women, who are forced to put up with the many atrocities committed by the militants of the Islamic State, are going to pay their deserts to their tormentors. They created a women's battalion to fight representatives of militant jihadists, and they seek revenge for forcing their sisters to sexual slavery for beheading their brothers.

              Ksate Shingali, a singer, usually performed in restaurants throughout Iraq with locals. A talented folk singer had many opportunities to leave the distressed region. Nevertheless, a sense of duty to her people made her stay and take up a new profession that was far from glamorous performances.

              “When the resistance began, I decided to join the movement. A friend asked me why I did not try to leave the country. After all, I am a successful singer in our region. I replied that I would rather sacrifice my life for this land, but I would not refuse it. ”- says Shingali.

              30-year-old Ksate formed the Sun Girls brigade and serves as an example for the rest, she is the brigade commander. She noted that the recruitment process was easy. Many women sought to join their ranks to fight their oppressors, some of them still in their teens ..... "

        Well, now everyone has joined the stream. Even motivated combat Shiites fled to Germany. The deputy of the most famous Iraqi warrior - Abu Azrael and the second man in the Imam Ali Brigade (triumphs of Tikrit and Baigi) are already in Germashka.

        Abu Azrael himself promises terrible punishment for deserters and made a special video, apparently not only the deputy ran.

        So to speak, indirect exposure strategy. The situation in Syria (Libya, Iraq ...) is an echo in Geyrop, the situation in the Donbass, I hope it’s not necessary to say where the echo is.
        That's just despite the similarity of situations, the result, I think, in the Russian Federation is directly opposite to that on which the Yusovtsy counted. In the EU, yes, they have achieved their goal.

It is one thing to defend one’s homeland, and another thing is political interest.

          Conscripts - only voluntarily, and even then they can not be sent. But the contract soldiers - professional military men who get paid for it, MUST! Do their job. And yet, is there really a difference- Defend the Homeland and protect the interests of the Homeland? The Syrians directly say: “If we can’t defeat ISIS, then we’ll turn around.” Or do you want a war on your territory when not only Russian soldiers but also civilians die?

            Of course there is, I would say differently and this is the difference. I remember was Afghanistan. We were told there our interests, our international duty (they also came up with a debt, it seems like they should) and what we got and notice this at our borders, and not somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea. I think we need to think a hundred times before sending our soldiers to death, but it’s better not to send them at all.

      They 4 of the year there are fighting off scumbags of all stripes. I am sure they can still fight back with the same success. But Syria is beaten all over the world, they will not be driven under the brutal store without help from outside. Many say that if we get into a fight, this will be our second Afghanistan. Beg not agree with such an assessment. Still, the Syrians and Hezbollah are fighting there. If our guys work there, it will be something like Debaltseve and Ilovaisk. Specialists will help organize boilers, help with turning the contents of the boilers into submissive sheep, help restore logistics and exploration. I do not think that we will fight instead of the Syrian army.

      It's fun, their healthy male population, instead of defending their homeland, runs home for a "sweet" life in Europe, and we need to shed blood for them.

      The thing is that we position ourselves as a global superpower and almost openly oppose ourselves to NATO (another global gigemon), therefore the issues are resolved from the point of view of global politics, and not regional. Do you think that we are helping Syria this way? As one wise friend of mine used to say, to understand the motives, we must honestly answer all the questions that arise, will we try? Do we need a fulcrum in the Mediterranean Sea? - Needed. Options? - Objectively, only Syria and the Assad regime. Do we need to control one of the key areas of oil and gas pipelines to Europe? - Yes (that’s why we hold them by the eggs). What is this direction geographically? - Syria. We do not need the stabilization at our borders and within the country associated with radicals and the flow of drugs? - Yes. So where is it better to wage war against this problem already on the threshold and inside or in another country where there are allies against it? - The answer is obvious - the second option. But if we don’t want to be a superpower and influence the world agenda, then yes you are right, we don’t need to get in there and shed blood. So who are we superpower or not? - ... (your option)

Is it not in the 90s that these liberals actively instilled in us our liberals? As far as I remember, liberals spat on the backs of the children who died in Chechnya, and how many Russians in the former republics of the USSR were thrown out and forgotten? So it is in Syria. There is another factor, in Syria, apparently, few people believe that without external support it will be possible to win. It is necessary to help, for one thing, and free from old equipment warehouses.

        Well, how were you going to close the northern border? The Turks introduced 50 km zone closed to flights in which any aircraft will be shot down. And repeatedly they did this, shooting down flying helicopters and airplanes. 10 km demilitarized zone has also been introduced. Any army facility, tank or unit will be covered by artillery and aircraft.

        How were you going to close the Jordanian border? To fight with Jordan? For there the militants flow to the Southern Front, receiving weapons from the king, and the wounded return to rest.

        And a lot more but. For example, to get to the northern border, even to the Kurds, it is necessary to crush the most powerful Idlib fist of the Islamic Front and Nusra, which is now actively saturated with technology and people for the upcoming general offensive.

    If you enter Syria, then only as part of the Iranian coalition of China and the CSTO countries. Otherwise, it will not make sense, in order to fundamentally reverse the outcome of the war in Assad’s favor, it is necessary to divide Syria into a couple of dozen sectors, and in order to gain control over such territory, it will take half a million troops for the first 3-5 years. The Federation is not yet able to keep 500 thousand soldiers in solo in Syria. A smaller number to go there means an increase in losses and cost overruns.

    Perhaps you need to expand military assistance to Syria:
    -Delivery of more modern equipment with training for Syrian crews;
    - Striking at militants with Russian aviation - this will even be a good test of running-in in combat conditions for pilots and combat aircraft (Su-34, Tu-22M3M, etc.);
    -strike missiles from warships of the Russian Navy.
    This may well be sufficient, but in no case do you need to help the ground forces, for obvious reasons.
    Someone will say that all this is expensive, now there is no money, but you need to remember that if Assad falls, and he falls without support (thanks to the American "partners"), then all this evil will be aimed already at Transcaucasia and Central Asia . And they will have to fight back at the borders of Russia. And refugees will trample from there to Russia. As they say the enemy is better to destroy in another territory than in their own.

      Well, there is a couple BUT:
      - Syrian crew training is 3-5 months. Do not lose equipment to the level in the first battle. Do not get confused or drown the tank under fire, etc. Do not give good equipment to the enemy.
      - Tu-22М3М alone was adopted by the Air Force, this year another 2 will be finally delivered and accepted. Somehow a little. Ordinary Tu-22M3 also makes sense to drive? Americans B1b drive and then only for great need. We need a base because otherwise there will be a wild consumption of aircraft and fuel, with a minimum load, that is, an effect. If the base is in Syria, then aviation can be expanded in any direction, even turntables, even Rooks, even Su-24, even Su-30.
      - what missiles? The USSR Navy and the Russian Navy did not set themselves the goal of striking ground targets. However, such a regime exists. For example, the P-700 missile provides for the destruction of a Port-Zavod radio-contrast target with a nuclear warhead charge, while accuracy is not provided with a conventional charge. The only surface ships capable of defeating cruise missiles - Dagestan + MRK 21631. Also Admiral Grigorovich, who is in trials and Admiral Gorshkov who is in trials. The rest of the surface fleet is only capable of nuclear warheads on the ground. Underwater is not better - the only diesel-electric submarine Novorossiysk is capable of working with Caliber (in the 877 boat modernization project that Kaluga has already passed, Caliber installation is not provided). Pike-B can shoot non-nuclear grenades (if they are available by the way), but this is actually a reserve and an addition of strategic nuclear forces, so no one will use them.

    Only I did not understand what kind of opposition this is, Alkaida al-IG.

    You can also add the CIA, although official Washington is thinking of starting to discuss the issue of the fight against ISIS with Russia ...

      What do you mean refuse? We are paying them the money (taxpayers). To drive such cunning from the army, also with the deduction of the received monetary allowance. I am in shock. Are they signing a contract without reading, or have they not taken the Oath?

    It's fun, their healthy male population, instead of defending their homeland, runs home for a "sweet" life in Europe, and we need to shed blood for them. request

    Actually, the Russian Federation, if anything, will be shed in Syria, it is only in the interests of Russia itself. Our interest is that Syria (at least its Alawite part) exist.

    It’s necessary to help with the right technique, but you shouldn’t involve the boys in this matter.
    I agree, and people who choose their profession to defend their homeland and its interests are called soldiers. These soldiers must do their job. soldier

    The authorities of the country can ask the Russian Federation for military support in the fight against terrorism if necessary.

    Hopefully, Afgan will not happen again.

    It is necessary to help with weapons and instructors in military training, but to use Russian cannon fodder as cannon fodder - for nothing!

    For any geopolitical bagels.

    A soldier takes an oath to defend his homeland. But not the interests of third countries. It can only be volunteers.

    Faced the interests of the United States and Russia in the east that lies in the ground. It’s not worth dying for. One thing is for the motherland, and the other is for oil and raw materials. Help technology yes, but not as a living force. Again, we get an Afghan with a bold number 2. Someone will warm their hands in the next war, and someone will mourn their sons. Politics is a dirty game in which there are few winners who have losers.

    In Soviet times, hundreds and thousands of troops were abroad, many fought (Korea, Vietnam, Angola, Ethiopia - giving his military duty to his homeland (his father served in Cuba in 62-63 as a tank commander - he didn’t say a word about this to any of his relatives, so common phrases were not easy therefore although they offered for the second contract) - and at that time there were no wars near the borders of the USSR. And now - I'm not me and not my hut, but the world has changed and not for the better.
    Yes, a great country crumbled (or rather, those in power ruined that it would be more convenient to steal natural resources), but the conscience and honor of the officer should always remain.

    But is the fight against ISIS not in Russia's interests? And statements like - Putin wait, we’re coming to you, is this a commercial? And the map of the state of ISIS, which includes the territory of the Russian Federation, are the machinations of the State Department?

    Assad now needs not technology, but people. For 4 years, the human resource of the Alawite sect has been depleted, not enough to cover all the gaps. There have always been few militants of Shiite Hezbollah, Iran has no more fighters from the IRGC, it is more important for him to keep the border Iraq behind the Shiites.

    I had an idea that they would drive the ship group to the Syrian coast and hit rockets from the missile cruiser in ISIS positions ... In general, how can we help Syria in terms of some troops? Aviation, tanks, ships?

    I’m embarrassed to ask, what missiles are you going to “hit” with the missile cruiser in ISIS positions ???
