According to Sergei Rudsky, Russian aircraft aviation the groups made 4201 sorties, and 145 of them - sorties of long-range and strategic aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces. At the same time, the head of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation noted the recent increase in the intensity of aviation actions against terrorist groups.

Sergey Rudskoy:
Russian aviation continues to give priority to undermining the sources of income for terrorists in Syria. For this purpose, only in the last three days, 6 of the illegal oilfield sites of militants, as well as 7 columns of vehicles transporting crude oil and refined products, were destroyed. Since the beginning of the attacks, Russian aircraft destroyed over 1200 nalivnyakov.

There has been a significant advancement of the Syrian government army in almost all provinces of the Syrian Arab Republic. Over the last week, the security zone in the area of ​​the Kveyris airfield in the province of Aleppo has been significantly expanded, 9 settlements in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib have been released.

The head of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces noted the successes of the Syrian government army in the province of Damascus - in particular, taking control of the military airfield Marge-al-Sultan, the creation of boilers, which were large militant groups in the Nula, Duma and Zibdin areas.

Sergey Rudskoy about the interaction with the so-called moderate Syrian opposition:
The successes of the ground operation of the Syrian armed forces contribute to the actions of the so-called moderate opposition against ISIL. Currently, more than 150-like formations operate in Syria. The most patriotic of them are already fighting in cooperation with the Syrian government forces. Today there are more than 5 thousand people. Constant contact is established and maintained with them. Opposition formations provide the command of the Russian aviation group with the coordinates of terrorist objects to defeat.

In the province of Rakka, with the support of moderate oppositionists from the Ganim and Democratic Forces units, it was possible to destroy the ISIL and 150 units of equipment near the 11 unit in the last 24 hours.

Attacks on terrorists and moderate opposition units in the area of ​​Palmyra and El-Karatien.

    All ties on the Syrian border with bordering countries should be taken under control. With fuel trucks, you need to finish. How many of them are there. 8000, and 1500 were destroyed. The rest are not clear what. And all these coalitions should be taken under control, so that they would not quietly drop anything from the air to terrorists.

      Perhaps, in the very hole in this situation would be the actions of sabotage groups to mine the routes of these caravans. 5-10 once undermined - then they themselves will stop driving. Its own skin, not yet fried in fresh oil, is always nicer ...

        There are many ways and methods, but there is no solution to do this.

          Reading the analytics on Syria, the statement that roads are there repeatedly came across extremely importantbecause people go there - only on the roads, even country ones. They write that the terrain itself is very difficult for civilian vehicles to pass, which is understandable. A fuel truck is a gentle thing, therefore it travels to places intended for this. There is absolutely no need to mine the desert, I wrote, unlike you, having thought wink

    It is good that the advance of the Syrian army intensified. Now the most important thing is the intensification of the offensive, in order to prevent the forces preparing for the dismemberment of the country to implement their plans.

    In short, still not bombing dumplings ...
    And I think that with restraint you can celebrate the victory then,
    when the fighters come to the border with Turkey.
    And that would be no nafig buffer zones ...

      Every 22 m. And the distance between them. But.
      Theoretically, drivers who are civilians should have refused. For the risk is great for himself and the machine, which is equivalent, to be in the next world.

      As it is not clear, it turns out. Why else is there anyone to bomb?

    Now a real "moderate opposition" such as Ghanim and the democratic forces is emerging. You have to prove your moderation with arms in hand, fighting the igils and freeing your homeland and not the dirty trick to your homeland and people, cleansing the country of filth, you can talk about your opposition and from the rostrum in the government ...

      Now a real "moderate opposition" such as Ghanim and the democratic forces is emerging. That was bad luck, they could not be found with the lantern, but now they have appeared. General Staff of the Russian Federation, in vain does not eat bread. Here in the press there was information that the IRGC was being withdrawn back to Iran. Ah, it may not be displayed ...

    Here, in some articles and comments, seditious thoughts about "in vain", insufficiency, etc. slip through. Our bombing of the "opposition" to Assad's formations, they say, everything is expensive, they say it is not effective enough for an early victory over ISIS ... And I am pleased that our Aerospace Forces are stepping up their attacks on enemies, gaining invaluable experience in modern combat operations, honing the skills of pilots. Well done, keep it up! Crush the USA and GB-fed reptile!

    The results, of course, are both impressive and effective. Very good information for Western "partners" to think about. In addition, an example for sane people how to legally fight the global threat without resorting to double standards and political meanness.

    the creation of boilers, which turned out to be large groups of militants in the region of Nula, the Duma and Zibdin. "Boilers"! It is now clear who is in command of the Syrian army. A question for those in the know, "besides us and the Germans, do other armies use boilers?"
    1. Jozhkin Cat
      Jozhkin Cat 16 December 2015 08: 42
      they use, but rarely, a boiler such a shnag that still needs to be able to be maintained and it is desirable to destroy, one-way breakthrough is not uncommon, success depends on the filling of the boiler with BP storage, a canteen, and a doctor, which is especially important during air strikes.
      I think so, if we went into encirclement, it means that with the rear structure of the enemy’s Armed Forces there is bad, it’s either destruction or severe stress to the enemy, with minimal costs on our part .... War ....

        The war there is probably without a clear rear so that you have to carry everything with you and if you surround, then the most important advantage of spirits, mobility, is lost. There is no supply of ammunition, no food. Probably makes sense in the boiler?

          there is both a front and a rear with warehouses, our aviation works on them. Yes, of course, they are partly virtual, and go through cities and villages, because the desert is not needed for anyone because it is impossible to keep it. The militants have little choice, either to stay to the death in the cities or to retreat to the rear already destroyed by aviation. The boiler has a meaning, to force it to leave the encirclement nowhere, into the desert and mountainous woodland, to leave and think about how to live further, or go on negotiations with troops, or die in the flame of ODAB and FAB

      Amused. What are the armies in Syria? There is no front, no rear, whom no one knows to surround. How much of the country's territory is controlled by Damascus, 20% or 30%, they themselves do not know. Look at the way of waging battles and decide if there are "boilers"

      They do not displace - they must be destroyed. So that no reptile anywhere else could do evil. And then they are like cockroaches - when they bully into another apartment they run across ...

    Extremely ineffective work! Why are the oil pumping units in the fields, oil storage tanks and the wells not destroyed? The restoration of oil equipment is costly and requires oil professionals, and an oil tanker is a "trifle" with such volumes of oil speculation.

      Cube123 16 December 2015 08: 38
      Because the oil infrastructure is useful to Syria itself after the liberation. And to shut off transportation - that’s it. No supply = no money. And the drivers of fuel trucks should understand that any contacts with ISIS are more expensive for themselves. You need to value your life more than money.
    BARKHAN 16 December 2015 08: 47
    Yes, it’s hard. Yes, for a long time to pick them out of the hole. But if we had not got into Syria all this nasty thing would have come to us. And now imagine all this horror in our regions. And the settlements would have to be bombed. it’s time to introduce tough barriers at the border, especially the southern borders. The more the barmalei get, the more likely they are to get a vile blow to our back.
    And most importantly, as long as the Saudis and Qatari live quietly, the bandits will be fed continuously. It is necessary, and even necessary, to somehow cut off this feed.
