Antonov: Russian aviation strikes in Syria verified and directed only against the IG

All attacks of the Russian air group in Syria are targeted and directed exclusively against the "Islamic state", reports RIA News Statement by Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov.




“All our strikes are pinpoint, calibrated and directed exclusively at the infrastructure facilities of the Islamic State.” We do not strike blows on any other military or civilian objects, much less settlements or mosques, as it is regularly served by some Western media, ”the general said at the Siangshan Security Forum.

He noted that Russia is working in Syria "transparently and provides daily objective information about the forces and means involved, and the results of the strikes inflicted."

The Deputy Minister stressed that the Defense Ministry had already organized interaction with the states of the region: “a joint Information Center has been created in Baghdad, in which coordination is carried out between representatives of the headquarters of the armed forces of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Russia”.

He recalled that Vladimir Putin at the UN General Assembly put forward a comprehensive program of action. “It is proposed to create a broad international antiterrorist coalition that could unite different forces in its ranks based on common values ​​and international law, guided by the principles of the UN Charter,” said Antonov.

“The strategy of political stabilization and economic revival of the Middle East and North Africa is in demand. Without the restoration of statehood, the strengthening of the institutions of government, the situation cannot be radically changed. However, one should act without imposing one’s own approaches, but with respect for the national culture and stories states in the region, ”the general said.

Focusing on the issue of interaction between the Russian Federation and the United States, Antonov said:
“We all face a common evil - terrorism, the main manifestation of this evil - IS. We offered the United States a large program of cooperation, including on Syria ... Unfortunately, the United States has not yet been ready for this. ”


The Americans, in his words, "categorically reject the word" cooperation "and for the time being limit the interaction to contacts of the ministries of defense of the two countries regarding safe flights."

“A little example for you to make it clear to everyone. We offer the question of saving the pilots. God forbid, tomorrow there will be trouble with some plane of the anti-Igil coalition led by the United States. God forbid, the plane will be shot down, and the pilot will land somewhere in the territory controlled by IG, ”the deputy minister suggested.

“Is there no more humane goal, how to combine all efforts in order to save this pilot? What is wrong if the United States and Russia have established cooperation at least in this area, because such a disaster could happen with a Russian pilot, ”he added.

“Unfortunately, we are not heard yet, and our cooperation is limited to only the document that we are developing together with the United States on the safety of flights in the sky of Syria,” stated Antonov.

        “All of our strikes are targeted, calibrated and aimed exclusively at the infrastructure of the Islamic State.” "We do not strike at any other military or civilian facilities, let alone populated areas or mosques, as is regularly reported by individual Western media,"
        And why are we shy to say that we support the legitimate government of Syria? And we cf ... for those who support the militants. All the rulers of Russia, except maybe Peter I, Catherine II, Paul I and Stalin were worried about the opinions of other countries. The United States has "support for democracy around the world", and Russia should have the support of all the legitimate governments of the world.

            But it is not good to be rude to a stranger, it’s about “if you have something to think about,” and about “they’re embarrassed to support,” I meant that if all Assad’s enemies are bombed, and not just IS, then say so. smear porridge that bombed only the position of the IG. Yes, we bomb all the enemies of Syria.

          According to the publication, the head of the British government is interested in avoiding any hassles of Russian fighters and the Royal Air Force. For this reason, Cameron hopes that Xi Jinping will be able to use his influence in Moscow to convince the Russian side to "not stand in the way" of the implementation of British plans in Syria.

      Whether Israel agreed with Russia on Syria or not will be seen along the front lines in Kuneitra and Daraaa. If there the militants get a bad breath and they begin to lose territory, then it means ours agreed with Israel. If, on the contrary, they go on the offensive, then that’s all blah blah blah. If you agree, then this is very good, since the militants in these provinces will be without supplies, and the intelligence capabilities of Israel in Syria can hardly be overestimated.

    So no one doubts this. But our well-wishers cannot sit silently, and so they spread such rumors. The main thing is that the result is the desired one, and everything else does not matter. Civilians repeatedly died from U.S. Air Force strikes. US forces deliberately hit a hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz. Russia constantly calls on the States to cooperate, but every time they refuse it.

    If you believe this map, then 80% of air strikes are applied to the positions of pro-American jackals from the "green" (where the army is now advancing), and not according to ISIS https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=z4PF1SFiMPjQ. kFa_qMMdFl48

    But not a single country has done this. The more Russia behaves the discovery, the meaner the attacks on it. But the West still does not hide our information from its citizens. Therefore, in this matter, we in the information war give a worthy rebuff.

    With the current development of computer science, it is already possible to model almost parallel reality by driving ANY disinformation, even the most implausible, in the media. And to recognize this without specialists is very difficult. But the result is not fake! You can scream as much as you like that Russian planes bomb mosques and hospitals, but the Syrian army went on the ATTACK! And neither hide nor gloss over - fail.

    Serious success near Aleppo: a detailed review of the situation in Syria over the past XNUMX hours from the Timur militia

    The latest information about the situation in Syria was provided by a citizen of Ukraine, a militia from Donbass with the call sign Timur, who is now in the Kurdish resistance detachments and is responsible for coordinating interaction with the Syrian army.

    Latakia and Salma: what a pity that there are no Russian tanks

    In the north of Latakia, battles for Salma continue. There the militants have a strategic point, with its fall, the road opens to the mountain passages to the Turkish border. While they are holding Salma, they can also send reinforcements; they have almost thrice updated their squad here, which they brought to zero. The Syrians have lost several units of armored vehicles on the streets of this point, it's a pity when you remember the protection of Russian tanks. With them, the militants would not have had such numbers.

    Here the terror, by the way, has an original character, it seems Abu Dajan or Didjan. He pulls himself to where the militants are doing shitty things. And not just like that, but with artillery. When they take Salma, pulling up to him will become much more problematic.

    Plain Hama and lies about the taking of the Sukake

    On the Hama plain, militants are fortified in the area of ​​the towns of Kafer Nbuda, Habit, Kafer Zaita, El Latamna. Head to Khan Sheikhun, followed by the road to Maaret Nuaman and Idlib. It seems that they believe that if they were not gouged near Kafer Nbuda, it means that the Syrian army does not have enough forces in this sector and you can even try to actually take back the Sukake hill with the village of the same name. From there, they can be hit right in the belly of their entire group, so that they have been trying for three days in social networks that they took Sukake. Although this is not true.

    South of Hama: Airstrikes

    South of Hama, militants are seated in Er Rastan, Tell Bis, and El Ganto. They were thinned out by airstrikes, but they haven’t touched the ground yet.

    Under Homs, the Syrians block the front, but do not move further

    Near Homs, the troops block the line of settlements from the side of Thur Maal, until they advance further.

    Successes under Damascus and Idlib: terrorists begin to blame Turkey

    Under Damascus, troops continue to advance slowly. It was confirmed that they had captured the "commander of the 17th brigade" Jaish ul-Islam. His name is Yasin Mustafa Ramadan.

    Near Idlib it is not known who slammed a couple of field commanders with explosions. And it is known who covered Saudi AbdalMuhsin al-Fadli “with a group of comrades” on the road with an airstrike. I guess you’ll guess without prompts.

    From this province, the “people” are actively pouring into Turkey. I personally saw the shooting of the Turkish military police cordons with tanks and armored personnel carriers. Moreover, it is similar on the Syrian side of the border. They say they filter the militants or those who can be suspected of belonging to them. And they take away the identified ones or wrap them back.

    Serious successes near Aleppo and the beginning of forced mobilization in ISIS in Raqqa

    Under Aleppo, government forces have made significant strides. With the capture after hard fighting of Abtyn and the blocking of Khan-Turan, the southern and southwestern suburbs of Aleppo are under the control of the Syrians, but the north and northeast are behind the militants. Here are just a route to Idlib in the southwest, beyond Khan-Turan.

    To the east, a national militia took control of two settlements on the outskirts of Kveiris airfield. The militants left them seem to be without a fight, probably trying to concentrate before the counter-movement. So they are trying to do near Damascus, Deraa and Al Quneitra.

    And in Raqqah and the occupied areas of Hasek, the Islamic State, according to rumors, has begun the forced mobilization of men aged 14.

    To all sane people, and so it is clear that
    Russian air strikes in Syria are calibrated and directed only against IS

    And the West will still yell about hundreds of thousands of killed and maimed peaceful terrorists no matter what.

    unfortunately, our people seem to have taken a turn around Syria and are beginning to make excuses ..... earlier there were statements that we do not distinguish terrorists by "color and smell" .... it smells like kerosene ... Assad’s possible surrender of Russia's loss of face and tension with Iran!

    Is that necessary? smile

    Dear forum users: I didn’t understand the deputy minister a little, or got it wrong: “All the strikes of the Russian air group in Syria are targeted and directed exclusively against the“ Islamic State ”"

    GDP previously said: necessary ... to provide comprehensive assistance to the government of Syria ...

    After this, the words did not diverge from the deed, which is why the howl of the Western media and the different Obama-Merkels rose: they wet everyone who is against the legitimate government. Moderate, immoderate - no difference. And then it turns out that strikes were made only against the IG. How so? The phrase is taken out of context and it turns out a misunderstanding?

      a simple understanding .... Putin just can’t renounce his words on the second day, and you have to give a return .... apparently the USA issued some kind of ultimatum (we won’t know about it) here Putin shows that he’s giving back through his subordinates .... by the way, in the news feeds there is a statement by Medvedev that we do not support and never supported Assad .... combat sorties are halved .... in short, some kind of endgame is brewing in Syria!

        Why did you dig into the words? His job is to say how we bomb accurately. And there you have to, but this is not a reason to officially voice the jambs or our individual tasks.

      Well, judging by the strike maps - they haven’t bombed the south yet, and there the SSA ... The East is a delicate matter ... there are a bunch of groups, maybe they’re agreeing with someone
