Military Review

The Syrian army took the key height of the city of Palmyra and destroyed several groups of militants LIH

74
Syrian military sources have reported that the government forces of the SAR and the militia took control of the key dominant height of the city of Palmyra (Tadmor). We are talking about the height 939.5 (it is - "nine hundred") on the ridge of Haya. After that, the resistance of the terrorists visibly diminished, since the government forces had the opportunity to attack the positions of the militants from several heights near the city.


ISIS militants were eliminated both at the very height of 939.5 and in one of the gorges where the command post of the so-called Islamic State was located.

Video of fierce battles for dominant heights using the army aviation and heavy equipment:




As a result of successful offensive operations, the Syrian government army and militia forces defeated several IS groups west of ancient Palmyra. Reported by the information service Al-Masdar News and the correspondent Lays Fadel. As a result of the special operation, several pickups of militants were destroyed, equipped with anti-aircraft guns and large-caliber machine guns.

Meanwhile, the ISIL militants in one of their accounts in social networks spread a statement that “a Russian military adviser was killed” in the Palmyra area. For ethical reasons, "VO" does not publish a photo of the body of the victim. In addition, information about the death of the "Russian military adviser" is not confirmed in the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation.

    I hope the Syrian army was able to restore its combat capability and will now be able to act with our minimum support .... and most importantly, that the Americans with their sixes would not go with their "help" in the alleged fight against the ISIL ...

      Another guy hanged himself in the fall and it seems like another was Mr. case. But official figures are often crafty, but no big losses have been noticed. And by the way, infa appears that the planes are being withdrawn, and our turntables are becoming larger. fellow It’s not even clear whether this is a conclusion, or rotation.

      Of course, for an operation of this magnitude and duration, the losses are minimal!

      "Water truce" - The Turks decided not to pick up a campaign in the north near Jerabruz and Azaz, I hope until the snow comes down from the passes in Turkey, so that the tuk would have something to do near Dearbakir.
      Syrian armed forces, with the support of Hezbollah groups, broke through on Thursday into the museum complex of Palmyra, where the ruins of the ancient city are located.

      This is reported by the Lebanese publication Ad-Diyar.
      On the border with Jordan, it is also a peace type with the FSA. Well, God forbid, they take Palmyra and reach Der ez Zor and Rakkia - a completely different conversation will be in the "peace negotiations".

      He served under contract in the GRU special forces. According to Reuters, Zhuravlev lived in the city of Solnechnogorsk near Moscow, where the Senezh special purpose center, part of the Special Operations Forces (MTR), is located.

      When preparing the November material, Reuters asked the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs about the place of Zhuravlev’s death, but did not receive an answer.

      According to RNS, which refers to a senior source in the Ministry of Defense, Zhuravlev was an officer and "carried out the tasks of guiding high-precision weapons of strategic aviation." The interlocutor of the agency refused to give his rank and specify in what troops he served.

    It is reported about the significant losses of the Syrian soldiers, forced to conduct an offensive on virtually flat terrain. ISIS militants have shot down several Syrian tanks, which in desert conditions become open targets for anti-tank complexes, which are among the terrorists.
    . If there are several tanks, then this is already a lot for the Syrian army. Moreover, the news flashed that the Turks to the Ishilovites planted a fresh batch of TOW. To win there, you need cool eggs. I hope that life has made it possible for the Syrian military to understand what this means, and ours helped us to get comfortable in the military profession.
