At least 13 Iranian fighters of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps died and more than 20 were injured in a battle with terrorists near the city of Aleppo, reports Lenta.ru report Reuters message.


Fighters of the IRGC suffered losses under Aleppo


According to the agency, "the clash occurred on Friday when Islamists attacked the village of Khan Tumen, located in 15 kilometers south-west of Aleppo." The division of the IRGC had to retreat, and the settlement was in the hands of the militants of various groups, including associated with Jabhat en Nusroy.

According to the representative of the IRGC, Ali Rezai, in this battle "Iran suffered some of the biggest losses in Syria since the deployment of a contingent of military specialists in the country."

Despite this, the Iranian authorities will continue to support the government of Assad. “Iran will use all means to fight terrorists who commit crimes in the region,” said Ali Velayati, international adviser to Ayatollah Khamenei.

Earlier, 5 in May, the Iranian Foreign Ministry noted that "in Syria there are no Iranian regular units or special forces, and we are talking exclusively about military advisers."

    The fighters of the IRGC are literate, one of the most efficient with Hezbola. On the spot, they provide powerful support to the Syrian army. It means that the massacre is tough near Aleppo, or the locals "cheated" on something, put the Iranians under attack request
    "The IRGC unit had to retreat, and the settlement ended up in the hands of militants of various groups, including those associated with Jabhat al-Nusra" - most likely it is, the allies did not provide flank cover. request

        There is a recording on the network of the storming of this village, which was done by the blacks. The assault was according to the standard scheme, first an infantry fighting vehicle with a suicide bomber broke through and rushed in the center, apparently there was the main strong point, then a tank and three infantry fighting vehicles went into the breakthrough. Either experienced fighters slept through the assault, or they were nifiga inexperienced, if they could not withstand the attack according to the usual "ISIS template".

          I looked through the record of the militants during the attack on Damascus.
          The impression is that in addition to shouting, Allahu akbar in tactics does not understand a damn thing. climb a bunch of bullets like stoned.

        If you believe the wiki:
        an elite Iranian military-political formation created in 1979 from paramilitary groups of Islamic revolutionary committees, supporters of the leader of the Iranian Shiites, the great Ayatollah Khomeini [7]. He took an active part in the Iran-Iraq war, as well as in the creation of the Hezbollah organization. Officially part of the armed forces of Iran.

    the settlement was in the hands of militants of various groups, including related to Jabhat al-Nusra
    I wonder if all the "groupings" have been deleted from the negotiators.

    The guard splashed the shaitanmobile, the suicide bomber rushed already at the post, a ton of explosives smashed the post, those who survived were heavily shell-shocked. Then the Ishilovites drove up heavy home-made mortars, tanks and walked them around the post. After that, they took what was left, almost without loss. : tear shaitans on distant approaches, otherwise all the pipe.

      There was no IS; the nearest IS was somewhere 50-60 km to the north.

      There was a group of Nusra - the best infantry of the broads, well-coordinated mechanized group 2 T-72 and 2 pennies.
      There was Jude Al Aqsa - several T-55 armored units reserved with all kinds of rubbish such as them, a lot of infantry and support (MLRS, mortars), they operated on the flank.
      Perhaps there were Akhrarovtsy.

      The main problem is that there was no defense. The martyr’s bomb was blown up already in the Mist, at a strong point. The bridges across the channel were taken from the swoop. According to the video, everything is there.

    Judging by the fact that the bandits in Syria show on TV mostly only small arms, grenade launchers, ATGMs. The Syrian army has armored vehicles, multiple rocket launchers, complete air supremacy, and so on, having the advantage in taking cities for so long During the time in which the army liberates one village in Syria, fighting with bandits, Hitler’s army captured the country, and the Red Army took an impregnable city during a counterattack, which was protected not by a bunch of bandits, but by a professional regular army having all kinds of weapons. that the war there will never end. request

      The Syrian army lacks only one
      kind of troops - infantry sad .
      SA infantrymen were almost all Sunni Arabs - they deserted
      and fight mainly on the other side in many factions.
      And the pilots, tankers, artillerymen - the Alawites - are on the side of Assad.
      One good battalion / regiment Assad managed to form - these "Lions of the Desert".
      They are thrown from place to place, plugging holes.

        No. The special forces brigade "Tigers", but rather an analogue of our DShB of the Airborne Forces and volunteers from the "Desert Falcons", who originally organized these latter correctly, the campaign recruited the backbone of real veterans with experience of the SAA.

And compare with the current situation, difficult, but not hopeless.

        Well, something like that with external perfume replenishment from around the world, yes. There are clearly not enough trained and, as a result, stable fighters on the defensive. Again, the border problem with Turkey is not resolved, and even with the Hesballah, even the border with Lebanon also has problem areas in the south.

            And the specialists from Iran and Russia, really can’t train 2-3 regiments and smaller special forces?

            They had already taught and commanded from Iran almost to Latakia, and nearly Damascus surrendered. Ours here armed and raised the level. BUT the matter is not fast, again in the war they not only quickly learn, but they die no less quickly, and even in conditions of civil war and external aggression with the supply of militants, this is not a simple matter. Well, at least estimate and compare the mobilization resource. The Iranians are also not in a hurry to engage the Basij subordinate to the IRGC, but they are recruiting Afghans of different Shiite angles. Well, and then - how are the special units going to keep the non-acid territory? Continue to drive them like hares around the country - plugging holes, which is happening now. A different approach is needed and ours is implementing it - signing local authorities on the world. This will work, as in Lebanon, BUT only against the background of harsh and merciless breaking of irreconcilable spirits. The East respects power and immediately begins to pour tea into glasses, hiding the dagger. laughing

      In this case, the defenders had 1 BMP (already the Nusrachei trophy), several Safirs, several gantraks.

      The advancing Nusrovsky mechanic group 2 T-72, 2 BMP-1 which are perfectly coordinated (they also took Eis), the mechanic group Jude Al Aksy - 2 armored infantry fighting vehicles, 1 T-55. And a few more tanks / infantry fighting vehicles of other allied groups.

      The problem is that the forces were not opened, they were allowed to concentrate and overslept the attack. And then, when the defense went, it turned out that since December, in addition to the liquid shaft, a small fortification on the bridge over the canal (which the broads had taken right away), and nothing had been done to strengthen the barracks. Here is a video of the first phase of the assault.

    Who cares. Iran’s position after the lifting of international sanctions.
    The initiator was Mr. Obama, by the way.


    The Iranian Defense Minister said that Iran does not recognize any restrictions on military exercises in its zones of influence.

    Brigadier General Hussein Dehkan, in an interview with reporters referring to the instructions of the Iranian Supreme Leader on Iranian sovereignty in the waters of the Persian and Oman Gulfs, added: “Iran does not claim any rights beyond those specified by international norms for territorial, regional and free waters.

    According to Dehkan, Iran, while protecting its territory, will not allow any invasion of either air, sea or land space.

    “The Iranian Defense Minister, also noting that the United States and Saudi Arabia are trying to create the basis for the presence of supra-regional forces by destabilizing the regional situation, added:“ Countries that allegedly care about the security of the region at a distance of thousands of kilometers from their borders should understand that their presence is a factor of insecurity.

    Losses mainly among special forces from Tehran - battalion Cn Saberin (Unwavering). Killed the colonel and at least 5 commandos who passed mountain and parachute training. Afghans from Fatimion also suffered losses - there are at least 2 prisoners and many dead sad . Babahs mock, take pictures with mountains of corpses.

    It is unclear whether the Iranians jumped to the aid of the NDF and Fatimion, or whether they were sitting there in reinforcement. The strategic point, which was one of the main objectives of the Suleimani offensive, was in November, with the task of taking Hader and Fog, forming a reliable buffer for supply lines to western Aleppo. Which is periodically attacked. Which was seriously stormed in April, a month ago (a propaganda attack on the wave of Yakes being taken by the Babooms when they dragged journalists and stormed live). Totally not ready for defense. That is, in general. Fortified barracks in the city. Liquid shaft, a couple of positions and all.

    Here is a video from the Bakhs from the UAV, how they famously brought down the flank. The defenders had several jeeps, Safir with recoilless, 3 machine gun nests, a loose embankment and sandbags. Babahs have 1 tank, 2 BMP, armored cars. As a result, the mechanic group broke through on one side of the embankment, a tank came up and that was it. The defense is over.

    The situation for the Syrian army is further complicated by the fact that the Caliphate is actively seizing the opportunity. A sudden blow in the desert took the main field and the plant supplying gas to Homs, Hama and Damascus - Shaer. They scored a lot of things, tanks, guns, ATGMs, an arms hangar, even a gifted KAMAZ. Next began to storm Mahr - another field. It also requires immediate action. As it was done, Desert Falcons, Radad (even before Mahr) were removed, the entry of blacks to Mahr will require additional forces. Which are needed everywhere, including Aleppo.

    Here is Shaer.
