The ground operation of the Syrian troops in Hama began with a massive artillery preparation

On Wednesday, the artillery of the Armed Forces of Syria began the most intensive artillery preparation since the beginning of the war with the IG, thus launching an operation in the north of the province of Hama, RIA News.




A simultaneous strike from artillery shells of various calibers and MLRS Grad were simultaneously subjected to the formation of the IG, located near several settlements on the border of the provinces of Hama and Idlib.

“A military operation began, primarily with the gathering of intelligence about the whereabouts of terrorists. After determining the targets, the artillery launched a very intensive attack on the enemy’s intended targets. Then the ground forces will attack, ”told the agency the commander of the MLRS battery Vasim Khaddam.

According to the colonel, “a few days before the start of the operation, the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces struck effective point-to-point strikes against command posts, equipment and weapons Islamic State and other warring groups on the side of the IG on the border between Hama and Idlib. ”

He noted that the main fire was aimed at the IG units located "in the area of ​​Leitan, Kafr Zeit and around the nearby villages". The strategic value of these settlements is that "they are located on the motorways leading to the north of the country and to its central part."



Khaddam stressed that another equally important goal of the operation is “the safety of civilians living in the immediate vicinity of the occupied territories”.

        Keep it up, Syria !:
        "According to Al-Manar TV channel, a ground operation 200 km north of Damascus became possible after effective strikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) against gang units.

            This is already superfluous. Enough and demonstration firing from the Caspian Sea. Aviation itself will cope. Putin has already shown the US and NATO that he has reset ALL of their military power from Lisbon to Kabul. Caliber 533 mm cruise missiles (our standard marine) are equipped with our missile boats and river-sea hovercraft. About other ships of a higher rank and class, submarines do not even want to talk. The declared range of these missiles is 2600 km. From the waters of the Black, Caspian and Baltic Seas, ALL Europe, northern Africa and a significant part of Asia are shot through.
            It seems that the Great Smoked Leader, speaking at the UN General Assembly, already knew about these missiles, and therefore he fell on falsetto against Russia.
            Looking through the Western media, one can clearly see the confusion of their establishment. They drive such a blizzard that listening is ridiculous. Solid cacophony - some in the forest, some for firewood!

        There will never be a complete victory there (in Syria). The Kurds have already felt freedom of action and will not agree to a unitary state, especially since the United States is steadily helping the Kurds in Iraq to create their own state. And the worse the Syrian Kurds? Fight well and can hold the blow. Assad is in no hurry to promise the Kurds something like a federation. How will he disarm the Kurdish army? Again with the help of our aircraft? And will we help him with this? Hardly, I doubt very much that our President Assad will help in this. And also the numerous religious armed groups that support Assad at this stage, then what should I do with them? Disarm peacefully and drive everyone under the rule of the Alawites? What to do with the Sunnis, who make up the majority in this country? There is not a question of victory, but defeating the IS. Victory can be achieved very soon if it is achieved. It’s easy to talk, it’s much harder to do. The main thing is that we would not get in there with a ground operation.

          For starters, what is considered a complete victory in Syria? I think that when ISIS is grinded, there will be time to work on a coalition in Syria. But Assad must be left in any way, otherwise there a Western puppet will be erected on the throne, then for sure - HAT!

Therefore, at first they will drive the gunners, then the others will catch up. Otherwise, it made no sense to get into this war.

          Well, we also live in a multinational country and, poorly, somehow we get along even with the Chechens. It is clear that there are enough problems in such cases, but I think that some nations deserve certain preferences and will receive them after the Victory. As I understand it, our and the Syrians are also actively working with the Kurds now. There may be a compromise. Wait and see.

    But the Syrians are not decisively attacking. Afraid while the enemy. I hope they get out. Until the border with Turkey is closed, so will aid do without an account. Erdogan bit her bit, however, the elections will soon be lost, which he, having quarreled with the Kurds and not knocking Assad, will probably lose. In the east, they do not like losers.

    It didn’t start very much. As of yesterday, the SAA had 33 dead 65 wounded and loss of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles of about 9 pieces. Pearl in the forehead on the Barmaley Fortifications with ATGM TOU almost columns, with infantry behind the armor. In the process of promoting artillery support was not. The barmalei don’t even have trenches, so heaps were poured and fired from there ATGMs, free of charge for artillery, but it isn’t ... In short, tin. Sources counted 18 anti-tank missile launches, even fired on the infantry of the SAA fired. They need to be completely retrained. Well, they do not know how to advance yet.

    We are pleased with such news, now the main thing is not to slow down.
    And what about the sale of weapons to Ukraine ...
    So maybe it will not be a sale, but a resale through its territory.
    Ukraine as an adversary has merged with us, this is already understandable.
    But as an object for carrying out muddy schemes, that’s it.

      The US knows how to count money. What they allocate is not money for Ukrainians, it’s 90 percent money for organizations that will advise Ukrainians to train and all that and probably will give a little bit of armored cars, old Humvees, rubber boats and night equipment and all that kind of shell that they have in bulk and which has long been outdated .. But the Ukrainians will definitely pay the money for all this, also with interest ..

    A native of Donbass with the call sign "Timur", who is now in the units of the Kurdish militia and is responsible for coordinating actions with units of the Syrian army, handed over to "Russian Spring"

    "But information is already circulating in the Arab media that, through unofficial channels, the leadership of the concerned" parties "was explicitly informed: such deliveries would be seen as an act of war against the Russian Federation.
    Against this background, it is clear why many militants, including pseudo-Mujahideen from the Caucasus, prefer to get out of Syria to Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Europe. But many have nowhere to go - foreign patrons are not waiting for everyone back. Moreover, some, on the contrary, are pushed to die on Syrian soil.
    As a result, on October 5–6, the concentration of militants continued towards the north of Latakia. The reserve area for the accumulation of resources was the area outside the city of Zabadani, where a truce was established. Such actions pose a direct threat to Russian military bases in Tartus and at Latakia airfield. Obviously, they are the main goal of such a concentration of militants, as well as access to the coastal zone. Interested in the destruction of terrorism on their land, the Syrian army must inevitably strive to forestall the enemy by defeating his forces and cleansing not only the north of Latakia province, but also the environs of Hama and Homs. "

I’m shocked, they’re obviously iron eggs !!!

    There, not only the states will open their mouths. There are many hunters.
    Pie to share, do not run with a gun.
    Good luck to Assad and his troops. And ours too.

    Again the video of the babaev. Master the captured CAA tank and talk about the victory over Vladimir Putin.

    And the Turks felt sorry for their fosterlings, grandmothers fired, fired at ISIS and at you. They decided to blackmail us a bit.
    Turkey threatened to stop the purchase of Russian gas due to air accidents, reports Reuters. Moscow should be sensitive in such matters, since Ankara can buy fuel in a variety of places, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said.

      it’s interesting for anyone from Iran, it’s not so long for the Kurds to persuade the gas pipelines to blow up.

    The air defense work of the baboons on our Su-25. At 0.29, either self-destruction of MANPADS, or a rupture of an anti-aircraft projectile.

    The “fortified area” of the Babaev near Kafr Zita, where the SAA offensive began yesterday. They calmly watch how they fly near them, but they do not dig trenches. But there is no artifact ..... There are not even mortars. Beach.

      What scares me is that the Syrian army cannot even grind a herd of rabble. Apparently the troops are completely bloodless ...

      Rabble is a good definition, with this approach (AND WE TOLD THAT WE WILL NOT BE BOMBED BY US ...) after the next raid they will become minced ...

    ,, Granite "according to Toyota" wassat ?????? ,, Moscow "did not go to modernization this year request So that is only air defense and the sea.

    Well, not according to Toyota and not Granite, but it never hurts to practice real goals in combat conditions. Maybe it’s really worth consistently groaning in a variety of ways for the purpose of verification.

    If only in Syria they did not start playing “Minsky-1,2,3”, then all the successes would be mink beaver
