Summary of the battles for Palmyra: the Syrian army recaptured the Semiramis hotel, turned into a command post, from militants

65
There are reports from Syria that one of the key sites of Palmyra is that the Semiramida Hotel, which has been turned into the command post of ISIS militants, has been taken under control by the government army and militia groups. Hotel "Semiramida" is located in the southwestern part of Palmyra (Tadmor).


The hotel was turned into a real fortified area by militants. Also, "Semiramide" was used by igilovtsy as a complex of barracks for representatives of a terrorist group.

Control of the hotel allows the main forces of the Syrian army and the people's militia to freely enter Palmyra and attack militants in other urban areas.

The main phase of the assault on the positions of the militants who had sat down at the hotel began on the night of March 24. Pre-sappers demined the territory, which adjoined the hotel "Semiramida". During the demining of several fighters of the Syrian army were killed - sniper and machine-gun fire igilovtsami led from several points. The firing points were suppressed by the efforts of the Syrian special forces.

Information Agency SANA writes that militant groups were defeated in the area of ​​the Al-Tar summit, as well as in several south-western quarters of the ancient Syrian city, which the militants inflicted colossal damage during the occupation. Recall that one of the income items of ISIS is the sale of historical values ​​on the black market.

      Something independent blogger Barmin does not post his reports on the review of the fighting for two days. Thanks for the info, but she's very good. stingy. Is Palmyra fully under siege if Turkey is still buying oil stolen from Syria? Or are there some "baubles"? Isn't it time for the Syrian Kurds to make their internet info following the example of Novorossiya? Assad cannot do this yet for obvious reasons.

        she is very good. buying up. Is Palmyra completely under siege if Turkey is still buying oil stolen from Syria? Or are there their own "baubles"? Isn't it time for the Syrian Kurds to make their internet


        Let me add. There is no point in taking Palmyra into a siege, it is enough to take positions to shoot through the tracks, only two required. The military is constantly changing positions, either under fire, or when it is necessary to concentrate. Such a Brownian motion. The airport, which has not yet been taken, is very important. Turkey certainly buys oil and only the capture of Ar-Raqqa can affect the volumes. Kurds are too disunited, and are not capable of any joint "united" actions. Clans, you know.

          The Syrian Army captured a judge, by whose sentence (after the capture of Palmyra by rebels) hundreds of prisoners of war and civilians, including women and children, were executed. The guy on the right seems to have already set out to drop in his lobeshnik before his others break.

        Information has just slipped that Palmyra has been freed. I don’t know how much to believe this.
        The Syrian army recaptured the city of Palmyra from the militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization, captured by terrorists in May last year, reports AP.

      Racca is much north. To Racca, the gut stretches from Aleppo, beat off the Tabka base, go to Ephrat, and then Racca is nearby.

        Hey, wise guy? After all, we have bombs made in the 56th year with an accuracy of 4-5 meters from an altitude of 5000 meters fall wonderfully. Caliber from the Caspian, precision weapons, I will not bring stock. So the question arose: why when it came to the assault on the fortified hotel, obviously not yesterday, and not at all by sanding the sandbags, all this wonderful technological power was not used against the bearded?

    probably everything is clear in Syria. slowly but surely, Syrian troops are crowding and smashing the militants. a little more and it will be necessary to build a peaceful life. Well, unless of course, some kind of reckless does not occur to the invasion of Syria. but in this case our vks. GDP clearly made clear to all bloodsuckers. just in this case, the construction of a peaceful life will be postponed for another year and a half.

          PALMIRA, a thriving ancient city on a caravan route in the Syrian desert, now the Arab village of Tadmor. Palmyra (Palm City) is the Greek and Latin name for the city, but even earlier this place bore the name that still exists among the Arabs. In the inscription of the Assyrian king Tiglathpalasar I approx. 1100 BC it's called tadmar

            FenH - Do not disgrace The oldest mention of Tadmore found in the royal archive of Marie. According to the Bible and Josephus Flavius, Palmyra was founded by the Israeli king Solomon as the foremost stronghold against the attacks of Aramaic hordes on his possessions, stretching to the shores of the Euphrates. Nebuchadnezzar II, during the invasion of Jerusalem, ruined it, but soon, due to its advantageous position between the Mediterranean Sea, on the one hand, and the Euphrates Valley, on the other, it rebuilt again and became a haven for trade caravans and a storage place for goods traveling from the West to the West. East and back. Here was the capital of the state of Palmyrena, governed by its own sovereigns, the senate and the national assembly
            Hebrew is also Tadmore

    I would be very happy for Syria if your plans come true. It would be great.
    The truth from these words comes the aftertaste. We have no war as such (except for oligarchic redistribution) for a long time, and no one is planning to restore the economy. It's a shame like that. Do we really need a war to restore the economy?
    Or does it turn out that we somehow believe more in Syrian restoration than in our own? (
    I mean, Russia would be strong economically, if there were no thieves, then one call to the port of a ship with the St.Andrew's flag would be enough to curtail all the Saudis, Igilovites and other heresies. And if the head of state said at the same time, "we have decided to eradicate terrorism" ... the effect would triple.

    "An officer of the Russian Federation died in Syria: he caused fire on himself, being surrounded. An officer of the Russian special operations forces died in Syria while carrying out the task of guiding air strikes against terrorists in the Palmyra region, a representative of the Russian base" Khmeimim "told reporters."
    This is very sad news.

    One way or another, but today they report that Palmyra was finally released, so I congratulate everyone! Finally, the Syrian government troops (well, not without ours, of course bully ) have achieved really great success!
