The Syrian army, with the support of aviation of the Russian Aerospace Force, continues the offensive in the suburb of Damascus Jobar

The Syrian armed forces continue to attack the positions of militants in one of the suburbs of Damascus - Jobar. More than five thousand militants of terrorist groups have been firmly entrenched in this area, holding the suburbs for about two years. The positions of Dzhebhat al-Nusra, militant groups representing one of Al-Qaida’s wings, are the strongest in Jobar.

Complicating the advance of the Syrian troops in advance is that under Jobar the terrorists managed to dig literally tens of kilometers of underground passages and equip several bunkers.

Representatives of the command of the Syrian government army units say that today the fierce fighting in Jobar is literally for every house, and in order to destroy the militants entrenched in one building or another, you have to block all the exits from the underground labyrinths . Attention is drawn to the fact that a similar tactic has been used previously and is still being used by militants in the territory of Afghanistan.

In an interview with a correspondent "First Channel" The representative of the Syrian troops says:
I know for sure that in one building only there were up to 60 terrorists. This house is no more. Today we destroyed their command post. But, of course, our biggest problem is their underground passages.

Accidental strikes of Russian help to destroy underground communications of fighters in Jobar aviation for proven goals.

Video from VGTRK (video sequence published on Alexander Pushin’s YouTube channel):

It was from Jobar a few days ago that gunmen shot at the territory of the Russian diplomatic mission in Damascus. Then, as a result of the shelling, several Syrians were injured, who participated in a rally in support of the actions of the Russian Federation in Syria.

    Рад за союзников, что освобождают свою землю от "умеренных" и не очень умеренных людоедов.
    It is not for nothing that the West began to sing about peacekeepers who are supposed to protect the objects of UNESCO.
    More recently, the cannibals of Palmyra were smashed, so for some reason they were silent.
    Good luck to our VKS in their noble cause!

      This is an attempt to prevent Assad from taking control of the entire territory of the country. Assad, translated as a leopard. (Eastern languages ​​do not distinguish between a lion and a leopard, from that I translate as a leopard, because leopards (leopards) are there and were there, but with the lions, alas, no luck.)

      No, well, what are the point strikes of the aerospace forces in a dense urban area?

      Геология не позволяет там рыть везде, в торговых районах много подвалов, там обычно делают склады, это уже ориентир. Там где геология не позволяет рыть тоннель, делают насыпи и сверху накрывают обломками, маскируя под развалины. С беспилотника такие "развалины" вычисляются на раз, далее обозначаются концы такого туннеля, там вероятнее всего будет скопление субъектов. Кстати, бомбить сами такие "насыпи", неблагодарное дело, маленькая вероятность поражения целей, а восстанавливаются очень быстро, воронки еще лучше помогают маскировать передвижение. Третий момент, ночная тепловизорная съемка, позволяет обозначить скопление целей в определенных местах, характер движения. "Точечный" удар, не означает выбить одно фаберже из двух, это означает уверенно поразить выбранную цель одним-двумя б\п. Если при этом, случайно страдают "неточечные" цели, извините, иншаллах!


      actions of groups of special forces

      The task of specialists is not an assault attack, after an air or arthur. Specialists work unexpectedly, for a specific object, with a specific task. It may be a consolidated unit reinforced by specialists, but a commander who managed to put his specialists in such an assault attack must be employed as a gatekeeper to a pederast club. Unfortunately those were. Moreover, they still blather from the high stands, writhing themselves heroes.

        Not so simple.
        In our experience in Lebanon, such airborne
        tunnel systems are being worked out very
        badly. Even if the Air Force pre-shot the area in detail,
        part of the exits go unnoticed.
        When the area is surrounded and cleaned (approximately) on the surface
        infantry and tanks, then combing
        terrain (literally you have to go in chain). Discovered
        the sappers undermine the entrances to underground burrows with charges.
        Sometimes a combustible aerosol was pumped there and set on fire.
        And it’s not a fact that the militants remained underground, but did not leave
        through some undetected exit.
        Success criterion: if after a month in the area - strong cadaver
        smell, then the militants remained underground. If not, have gone.

          Not so simple.

          Your geology is slightly different. Near Damascus, solid rocky ridges, the foundations of houses even stand on them, and cellars hollowed generations of families. Gaza already has other tunnels, deeper. Today, Syrian cities, horror films can be removed, from that the burrow is not very deep, in order to hide the movement. The methods are also different, you can heal signal rockets, fill up the entrance and see where colored smoke is falling, there with mortars. Thermobar, burns out oxygen, then you take out the faithful fresh, clean, with all the weapons, but not breathing. Counter-tunneling events, when you listen from different holes where they dig, by the way, an ordinary stethoscope, thing! I recommend, better than any electronic device, a stainless steel square close to the wall of the object and listen. You can even hear direction changes. Aki is a dohtor. smile

      As a result, over the past week, government troops formed a front with a total length of 120 km, according to Chris’s authorship of the American Institute for the Study of War (IIIP), which was circulated the day before. Kozak.
      But in its findings, the IIPP, which is led by Kimberly Kagan, relative of Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nulandagrees with official US responses. Military experts believe that Assad’s allies will be required to attract greater financial and military costs than previously assumed.

      If rats - then it will be more correct to deratization.

      Deratization (fr. Dératisation - literally "extermination of rats") - comprehensive measures to exterminate rodents (rats, mice, voles, etc.).

      Food poisons (in the form of baits), traps, gaseous poisons, electronic traps, ultrasonic scare devices are used. Sometimes, for the purpose of deratization, biological methods are used - cats, dogs.

      The problem of disinfestation against mice is exacerbated by the end of summer, when the proliferating population is looking for places for wintering.

      The most effective is the spread of poisonous baits, with an anticoagulant poison that prevents blood coagulation. Rodents who ate such a bait do not die immediately, but after a few days, from internal bleeding.

    в начале перестройки в продаже появился переводной журнал "Солдаты удачи", там были интересные статьи о различных конфликтах в разных концах нашей планеты, описывались и события в Афганистане, и там я прочёл интересный опыт борьбы с моджахедами которые прятались в туннелях подземных оросительных систем, которые существовали со времён Александра Македонского, и имели протяжённость десятки километров. А поступали так: находили колодец в тоннель, устанавливали на дно ящик со взрывчаткой, а над входом подвешивали обычную гранату, всё последовательно соединяли детонирующим шнуром! Так как длинна шнура была разной, то на доли секунды граната над входом в колодец взрывалась раньше и создавала воздушную пробку и взрыв основного заряда получался направленный и распространялся вдоль тоннеля! Ещё больший эффект от такого подрыва если найти 2 входа в один и тот же лаз и заложить взрывчатку с обоих концов, все кто окажутся внутри погибают от баротравм. Ещё с помощью таких подрывов можно выявлять и не обнаруженные выходы, ударной волной вышибает все "пробки"!

    Of course, radical groups must be dealt with radically, namely; Apparently, in the territory occupied by the Ishilovites and others like them, there really is no population, the ruins must be demolished during restoration anyway (right?), but underground there is a web of underground passages in which bandyugan hide like rats. Let's do two in one. With a thermobaric charge, we level the ruins and radically jam out until the bandits get stuck. That's all business! yes good For victory!! drinks drinks drinks

    People - do not focus on some tunnels, there is also an anthill in every high-rise building.
    It seems to me optimal to gasp all the cigars from Moscow (if they are without special warheads), but plus or minus accuracy of more than 3 m will come out, but there you can safely turn the whole suburb into dust. How can they be completely destroyed at home without demolition then? One fucking demolition is almost inevitable, so why not help?
    I am an amateur - but in my opinion, a full salvo from the cruiser Moscow should be enough to completely demolish the suburbs.
