Palmyra Citadel Freed from IG Fighters

Syrian government forces as part of army units and militias dislodged ISIS terrorists from historical parts of Palmyra, passes RIA News message agency SANA.


Palmyra Citadel Freed from IG Fighters


During the fighting, the Islamists "suffered significant losses," the newspaper notes.

The storming of the city began on Thursday. “The army units and detachments of the Sokolov Desert managed to gain a foothold in the hotel complexes, pushing the terrorists to the center of Palmyra, and on Friday - to establish control over one of the strategic heights where the mobile communications tower is located,” the message said.

Then followed the assault on the fortress of Palmyra - “the last height controlled by DAISH (IG, banned in Russia)”

Palmyra is famous for its temples and buildings built at the beginning of the New Era and listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Earlier, the media reported on the destruction of a number of monuments by terrorists who captured the city in May last year.

    Yes, the support of the Amers quietly and the Turks in the open did not help them.

      Pleasant, of course, but so far this is a local success.

        This is not just a local success, but a strategic success. Since Palmyra opens many roads for Assad and at the same time closes them for maneuvering ISIS. So that "drop by drop, but the ocean is going"

          Terrorists still in Palmyra.

          Successes to the Syrian army.

          But it is better to celebrate the victory after it took place.

          PALMIRA (Syria), 26 Mar - RIA Novosti, Mikhail Alaeddin. Fights between the Syrian government troops and the militants of the Islamic State terrorist group (banned in Russia) are taking place in almost all quarters of Palmyra, except for the historical part of the city, RIA Novosti reports from the scene.

This suggests that the guys are armed and trained at the level, do not experience problems with ammunition. And already shelling the gas plant with Scud missiles says a lot

          Here you are talking about American bases - (of which there are one and a half pieces) in Russia in the first place - there are no less bases, secondly they are located in the most important populated regions of Syria. Yes - Americans are closer to oil, but the question is what will they have with this oil? Assad is advancing in this direction and is advancing well.
          And as for what Russia received - let's count: experience for combat pilots (as well as sailors), new equipment and weapons (Su-34, hummingbirds, etc.) have been tested, Russia is now forced to be taken seriously in the Middle East (if not Believe me - read the leading Western press), the situation in Syria is stabilized, which means that it will not be possible to turn it into a second Libya with 90% probability, which means that Russia will receive a reliable ally and a bridgehead in the Middle East in the person of Syria. And these are just the most obvious "goodies".

It may make you think the same barbarians doing the same in Ukraine.

    Palmyra is great, of course, but the shaitans began to gather around Aleppo - really, Assad’s army is not enough. I do not quite understand why he does not want to give the Kurds wide autonomy; they would quickly close the northern border. But you have to give - 40 million Kurds. on BV and without a state - is this not a jamb of the UN, USSR, USA and others? Is it not better for Assad to lead the process if it cannot be canceled?

      You have a very sound and logical thought. No matter what the war is over, all neighbors will have to reckon with the Kurds. Moreover, the Kurds themselves have already tasted freedom and independence. They have repeatedly voiced their thoughts and plans. And the confrontations with Asad’s Kurds certainly not what.
      All the activities of ISIS, Alkaid and other tergroups, in my opinion, are aimed at fomenting a full-scale war between the Christian and Muslim civilizations. And conversations / plans about the World Caliphate confirm this. All other talks about democracy and dictators are just demagogy and a distracting screen.
      If we keep in mind the ideological and military expansion (crawling migratory as well), then the war between north and south is already underway. You can naively talk about backward Arabs and the weakness of Islam ... But now they are already cutting and blowing up Europeans in the center of Europe. And believe me, to do this further. Russia with a huge amount of uncontrolled migration is also on the verge. At any time, explosions and sabotage will begin again. If our intelligence agencies report thousands of terrorist attacks annually, this means that there were at least a thousand terrorists ...
      All this is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed immediately.

    Well, like ours were noted there.
    It's a pity, of course, to our gunner, but I think that they took a fee with igilovsky lives in an xx-fold size.
    And the fact that the West and Turkey are swaying is our business to continue real successes in response to their bark.

    At this stage, you can only congratulate the Syrian army. After withdrawal of Our aviation contingent heard the usual snotty lamentations that "everything was leaked", now Assad is "definitely a cover", etc. Here is the answer to all the groans of the "couch generals".

    This is great. The army is gaining victory. In the East, it is especially important if the army believes in victory. Well, they have such a mentality. Although the Syrians in Queris stayed like ours in Stalingrad, but there were mainly cadets there. The capture of Palmyra is a strategic success. The next blow - to Racca. With access to the Iraqi border.

    The tactic of "squeezing out" seems to me somewhat dubious, the "devils" must be taken into a ring and destroyed to the last person, not taken prisoner, because they are not people, but so ... the main task - the destruction of the enemy's manpower - alas, is not solved or is being solved weak. Although, perhaps, the lack of forces of government troops affects, I am not a strategist or tactician, this is just my personal opinion. I'm happy about the liberation of Palmyra, but what kind of photo for the article? Is this all that remains of the Citadel?

    Good news. It’s also good that not everything was destroyed. Unlike the Germans in Peterhof.

    Something has disappeared from the air, our Israeli friends, who stubbornly kept repeating about the futility of the bombing of the Aerospace Forces, about the "logical" lack of success of Assad .. Every time something happens not according to their ideas, they all disappear together, save up their strength and rewrite the manuals. wink
