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.
