Syrian media: The first phase of the operation to free Aleppo failed

Syrian military sources publish information that government forces and national militia units have begun the first phase of a large-scale operation to free the militants from the country's largest city, Aleppo. Offensive actions are taking place on the northern outskirts of the city, where a large group of the Dzhebhat al-Nusra terrorist movement is opposing the patriotic forces.

Syrian media: The first phase of the operation to free Aleppo failed

One of the attacks on the militants of Dzhebhat al-Nusra by government forces and militia forces inflicted Khandarat in the area of ​​the deserted camp for Palestinian refugees. On the move, they managed to take the territory in the agricultural land of Mallach. However, the position could not be held. A few hours later, the militants of the Front of Nusra launched a counterattack and seized territories in the area of ​​the mentioned Khandarat camp. During the fighting, substantial losses were incurred by both sides. The first pancake for the liberation of Aleppo clearly came out lumpy.

According to some information, the group of militants "Dzhebhat al-Nusra" numbering up to 4,5 thousand "people" is concentrated in the Aleppo area. Even more 2,5 thousand. - militants of another terrorist group "Ahrar ash-Sham."

The fighting is now taking place in the metropolitan province of Damascus. There, in a suburb of Damascus Yarmuk, ISIS gangs are active.
Informational portal AMN reports that there has been a confrontation between igilovtsev and militants "Front en Nusra." The most bloody battles take place in the area of ​​the road junction leading to the western and south-western directions. Several powerful attacks by ISIL led to the fact that this group seized more than 90% of Yarmuk territories and continues to push Dzhebhat al-Nusra out of the city blocks.

      So, read on, we are talking about the battles of the 14 number on the Mullah farm and near the village of Khandarat.

      In Aleppo itself - traditional silence. There, all the streets are divided, and any advance across the street is a feil. Neither one nor the other side has the strength to decisively storm, even the level of the Quarter. Underground communications between houses, broken walls in communication houses, hundreds of TOUs and open supply lines for reinforcements and weapons (the actual attack on Khandarat and beyond is the way to block the main supply route for the Babakhs in Aleppo).

      However, the assault ended just like in Ace ... Already the second major miscalculation. Well, without normal bombing (only the SAR Air Force worked from heights more than 5km, that is, more mentally than real).

      Half a day before the assault, they sent the NUSRu there (the leak was evident or the preparations were opened), as a result, the attackers were shot on the outskirts of the city, and then they knocked out several units of equipment at the Farms from the TOU and were forced to give back the farms.

      In battles, the new NUSRs - the Czech RPG-75 grenade launcher, was produced with a godmother and a thermal bar.

        There are clearly not enough resources there, the most combat-ready troops are moving from place to place, it seems that the rotation of the Syrian troops is only a dream, while the rebels are constantly replenished with people and weapons. And yet (my opinion of the amateur), it was impossible to infer the VKS, when the turnaround was just beginning, the Syrian Air Force did not pull out the tasks of our VKS, which the rebels did not give a head to raise, for this they simply do not have the resources. In Palmyra, several hundred militants were destroyed, and there were six thousand of them there, possibly more, where did the rest go? Probably make their way through Yarmouk, to the center of Damascus. The situation can be changed only by the return of our air forces and a good replenishment of troops, so as not to squander forces. Where to get them? I don’t know, but with the current forces, everything will continue this way, in one place they will take, in another they will lose. With all this, the forces of the militants are constantly replenished by already well-trained fighters, good weapons (it seems like the mattresses want to put full-fledged air defense there, which means that they are already training personnel). In short, half measures there have long been dispensed with. In 2012, it was possible to deliver tanks and all the rest there, Bashar then had 300000 bayonets, and now even with the supply of the best equipment, the situation can not be changed. There are simply no longer human resources, much less trained ones. The conclusion of our videoconferencing is still a big mistake, the rebels understood this.

          It was not possible to infer VKS when the fracture was just beginning

          So they said in the news that 33 billion rubles were allocated for the entire operation. You can’t fight for this money for a long time.

            Defeat in Syria. it will cost us tens and tens of billions of greens and this is not counting the political geopolitical and military sides of the defeat. Through Syria, cheap oil and gas will pour into Europe, another NATO military base will appear, we will be clogged and abandoned at least seventy percent of our oil and gas. So it’s better to fork out now than to get all of the above, then there is simply no other choice. It is hard to imagine what would happen if Syria is captured by Turkey and Saudi Arabia, 33bn. rubles will simply seem like pennies to us, from the losses that we then suffer.

              Guys ....
              getting "in the face" is, in fact, the standard state of the military.
              Today - you ... tomorrow - you ... like be, tactics.
              Another thing is that SPECIFICLY we are talking about people, and it doesn’t matter anymore - they are there, whether they are Arabs, Naganasans ... Polynesians. People ... and that’s it.
              And on the other hand - do you really think that the adherents ... of the blunt end of the egg and the adherents of the sharp one came together in an uncompromising struggle?
              This is Asia guys.
              A Z and I.
              Everything is being built there ... damn whom I say ..... everyone knows everything.
              There is a system of contracts, a system of "concepts" (not criminal, but of their own), it has its own way of life.
              And there is also not the norm .... when some ringleaders ... from the "blunt" end ... tumble and heap a bunch of attendants ... on their own layouts.
              Asia loves money. Oh how he loves.
              And who does not love them ...
              just the song turns out - ".. no one likes Russia .. but you .. eat .... everyone wants!"
              So it turns out that behind high-profile phrases - the SAR releases Aleppo’s comrades, it didn’t work out, the Front ... he also Jebhat al-Nasral ... won back -
              hiding someone’s well-thought out layouts.
              Palmyra was bargained in the same way.
              Yes, this whole war is a war of merchants. Negotiated war.
              Our VKS entered the war .... the treaties ended in a fly. They all raked in such a way that they still can not dry out.
              We didn’t agree with anyone there. Well, maybe, except with Assad.
              The people ... who, like kakbe, are high .. and there are low ... contract ... damn it, the burning sides - asked such direct guys to calm down.
              But cho ... easy.
              Well, we see the result.
              Syrian parliamentary elections have passed. Passed wrong, on the high burning side.
              The movement began.
              For the time being, for the time being.
              And those who die there - of all I feel sorry for the gills only of their own - pilots, marines, special forces.
              Well and still the army of Syria.
              The rest of the "meat" is not at all.
              They paid. Right away.

      Bashar is withdrawing additional forces to Damascus from the fronts, so that the situation there at any moment can become critical, from Yarmouk to the center of Damascus at hand. The situation sharply worsened at once on several fronts. In northern Latakia, near Alepo, in the siege of Damascus, the capital. The ceasefire develops into an offensive by militants. I watched videos on YouTube (I don’t want to upload), the army backs off again and leaves its position (not everywhere, but still).

      So, there is no blocking. Now we have switched to the long supply arm via Idlib (I used to go through Azaz for 1,5-3 hours from the sender to the checkpoint - now it's one night). For this, it was obvious and began to sponsor Nusra (Idlib is still under Nusra) PPE, weapons, communications, uniforms, so to speak, pay tithes for transportation.

      In the city itself, where there is no fighting, because it is pointless (everything is very fortified on both sides), the broads have a wide supply corridor, they tried to take the main route under fire control, but they couldn’t even get hold of Khandarat sad .

    70 special forces of the IRGC (Iran) and 79 Lebanese Hezbollah fighters were killed there - blessed memory! Our intelligence worked poorly (I mean SAR-SAA. Did they blink. That the Islamists drove up the reserves? True, they bare their rear and were hit by ISIS in the Yarmouk region, now they are compressed like a spring - we must expect a breakthrough? After all, the spring will ever unclench?

      donavi49 April 15 2016 17: 49
      Yarmouk is a different region of Syria (or rather Damascus, the capital itself), the reserves were driven from Idlib and Hama, and everything is calm there, a truce. It is difficult to transfer reserves from Yarmouk in itself, where all the roads are blocked by the army, this is a deep rear, but in general it is such an internal theater. If a hundred or two fighters were removed, without equipment and weapons, then this is not very serious.

      Here is the map.

    Syrian troops are tired. Five years of fighting is too much! And this is practically without a change. On the other hand, the militants are very experienced. You can throw such caps on. Here, oddly enough, American tactics are needed. Tenfold superiority in heavy equipment and the complete destruction of positions by heavy artillery and aircraft. And this is due to the huge consumption of ammunition! They apparently are also missing!
    Because smart people say that this war has no military solution. It is necessary to decide politically! Or carry shells and guns there with vehicles and trains.
    What path the Syrian and Russian leadership will choose will show time.

    Now from anonymous sofa ekperds who are not able even to mumble, again I will catch on cons, but I will repeat. Assad is a representative of the Alawite sect; for Sunni Muslims, he is not just a stranger, he is a heretic to be destroyed. Assad is an ethno-religious minority, Alawites in Syria are less than 10%, Assad simply does not have the strength to win the war against the Sunnis.

If Assad is overthrown, the Alawites are slaughtered, Christians are driven out according to your happiness, to be turned on your Sunnis, or will they cut further each other?

Asad has one way to retreat to the borders of the Alawite state (in the 30s it was like that) and stay there with a death grip, there are most Alawites, there he has every chance to survive. Syria is an artificial state created by the French, it has no historical perspective, and now Syria within the borders of 2011 is already de facto no

    the hype that they will take Aleppo, bloated more than one day. Everyone knew everyone was getting ready. The enemy is even more so. The enemy is definitely strong. Also, after some defeats, they need at least something to demonstrate to the sponsors. During the civil war, identifying scouts and spies is almost impossible. It is also likely that the bandits were actively helped by Western Russian partners. In general, all this predetermined the trouble. But it seems to me that on any initiative on the side of Assad’s troops. If they stop behaving like the Arabs behave and start fighting seriously, things will probably go. One defeat is not a lost war. Most importantly, what would be enough resources, including human
