ISIS militants regroup in Rakka and launch an offensive against the Syrian army in Deir ez-Zor

40
The representative of the American anti-Igilov coalition, Colonel of the US Army, Steve Warren, said that, according to American intelligence, the group of ISIS "has introduced a state of emergency in Raqqa." According to Warren, the militants are actively regrouping and strengthening their positions. In addition, facilities that are potential targets for air strikes are being strengthened. Reports about it Interfax.


It is noted that the re-grouping of the forces of the so-called "Islamic State" is carried out both in the regions of the Rakka province and within the administrative center of this Syrian region. The same Colonel Warren declared that detachments of the so-called free Syrian army (SSA) are moving to the city of Raqqah (Ar-Raqqa) from two directions (east and west). Allegedly, this is what forces the ISIL militants to begin an active regrouping of forces and the strengthening of their positions.

Raqqa is the unofficial capital of the terrorist Islamic State. Earlier, American media reported that in this Syrian city is a man whom the United States called the leader of ISIS. It's about a man named Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The media reported that the ISIL militants had launched a massive offensive in the province of Deir ez-Zor on the eve. The target area for the attack was the government-controlled area of ​​Tartuh, located off the west bank of the Euphrates River. The assault on the positions of the Syrian army began with the fact that several trucks loaded with explosives were launched ahead. However, Syrian troops were able to stop igilovtsev, destroying mined cars on the approaches to the city with the help of RPGs. Reports about it AMN.

However, this did not stop the terrorists. They attempted an offensive from two directions - the northeast and southeast. The fighting in these sectors of the front continued for at least 2's hours. Through the efforts of the 104 airborne brigade of the SAR, the militants were driven back. On the losses among the Syrian paratroopers are not reported. However, it is known about the losses of ISIL - 30 militants, including 3's warlords, were destroyed. Among the liquidated field commanders of ISIS was Abu al-Hafiz al-Tabuki - a subject of Saudi Arabia.

    Here's a tenacious, this Daesh. And he takes strength somewhere, and means. And the recruitment continues. The Syrians need to end their strange wars, in which companies of the Barmaley attack battalions of government forces, and often knock them out of position. It feels like seasoned and skillful veterans are chasing recruits. Well, as much as possible. Without artillery, without air support, without armor, to attack full-scale army units and ... create problems for them, even to leave their positions? This says only one thing. IMHO, poor training of troops and low morale. On average, in the army. I remember the seven-day war and the "Yom Kippur War", when in spite of the numerical superiority, both the Egyptians and the Syrians, to put it mildly, did not show ...

      The coalition operates where there is a proven contact base on the ground. These are either trained CCA operators or cat operators. In the north of Aleppo, A-10 is regularly stormed and bombed by the Hornets. Separate raids are carried out on identified targets, but single raids (20-30 per week for Iraq and Syria) - for example, they blew up the headquarters in Idlib. 16 wrapped up, one Amir.

      VKS - only bombs when it's really bad, 4-6 sorties per day.

      ATS air forces - are worn to the limit, plus the presence of MANPADS makes adjustments for use, and from Balalaika or even MiG-23 get a bomb, even with 500-1000 meters of luck, and with 3-4km it’s good if you just go to hell Especially homemade bombs. And the capabilities of the SAR Air Force up to 10 sorties per day.

      So, as a result, they rolled down 80-90 departures per day to 20. From here, all the barmalei perked up and carried out major operations, recapturing the territories in Aleppo, now trying to unite the Rastan enclave - simultaneously cutting out the Alavites in Zara, the same Shaer, the most important gas plant and field, has not yet been recaptured, after being captured by blacks.

    This statement is a recognition of the Pentagon in direct participation in the activities of ISIS. It is unlikely that the United States has intelligence among ISIS, most likely only curators. They are now engaged in regrouping, in a dramatically changed situation.

    And I think more and more often - is it not too early for us to withdraw the bulk of the troops from Syria?
    While there were troops, there were reports of destroyed militants and military structures.
    And now silence reigned with the exception of concerts that were useless to anyone.

      Some may and even want, but not so many simultaneous fronts. There are not many Allavites. Sunnis, an order of magnitude more.

        Some people think that ISIS is alien bandits.
        Syrians - this is ISIS.
        In Syria, in ISIS (as in all other motley groups) - this is the bulk of the Syrians and a certain percentage of outside mercenaries and volunteers.
        An exception may be the SSA - where there are practically no foreigners, or rather a perfect minuscule.
        In Syria, a civil war with a religious bias, so the Shiites and the Alawites are on one side, and the Sunnis are on the other.
        There are only 8 times more Sunnis than Alawites - well, then think for yourself who will whom and who can stay under whom?
        The situation can only be resolved politically, and it is not warlike.
        But for this, Assad must leave, I think this is the reason for stopping the work of the air forces and Lavrov’s statement on Assad.

    Friends! There is no need to think so primitively about SAR, this is not Afghanistan! There are no clearly red and green ones, there is a pair of each creature and everyone is fighting against everyone! And Assad is not so fluffy and white, and Iranian (Lebanese) interests, and Chinese, and even North Korean on one (Shiite) side? With Sunni it is understandable, although there are also "rightists" like Turkey, the SA, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and even Shiite Egypt and "leftists" like Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain and Co. The Palestinians have a split - Fatah with the support of Israel (?) Is fighting for the Sunnis , HEZBALL for the Shiites! The result of this local war is the death near Aleppo as a result of the strike of the Israeli UAV, the Minister of War of Hezbollah! So the very correct position of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is "headlong not to go into this meat grinder", but to wait until the fighters - wrestlers are exhausted, and then strangle them weakened one by one! The Iranians have already started to run out of steam - the IRGC has huge losses! The FSA has big losses, but the Saudis are still helping very well, and the ceasefire in Yemen plays into their hands - the Iranians were unable to develop a counteroffensive there? you have to sit by the river and wait. when the corpse of your enemy swims past you !? this will be a signal to hit the most sore spot of terrorism - on the testicles, so that they no longer multiply

        I (honestly) neither believe.
        It is reported that the brother-in-law and successor of the Hezbollah intelligence chief Imad Murniya, who was liquidated in 2008, was destroyed by the latest guided missile. According to media reports, this is an operation using the latest missile technology, which only Israel and the United States have at their disposal.

        According to the newspaper Al Akhbar, funded by Hezbollah, a rocket of an unknown type was fired at the headquarters of the organization, located near the international airport in Damascus. Not long before that, a council of war was held there with the participation of Ad-Din.

            Well, Hezbollah, who is completely stuck in ears in Lebanon, just lacks another, symbolic liquidation, to which they will not be able to answer.
            Therefore, to blame the SSA for this suits everyone - us (we generally never comment or confirm), Hezbollah - she definitely does not need another slap in the face.

      If you are hinting at 10 Stalinist attacks, then in them
      about 2 million Soviet soldiers participated (starting from
      Bagration operations).
      In Syria, so much is not necessary, of course, but also by two combined battalion
      groups, as in Donbass, you will not get off. There are cities, mountains.
      On a million-plus city, like Aleppo, you need at least 2 brigades,
      Idlib and the surrounding area are two more. Somewhere 200 support tanks and up to 100
      bombers and helicopters ...

    What was warned about earlier ... Another RAKE ... They gave the ISIS members a rest and group! The Syrian Army has relaxed (Well, the end of the war!). problems come - for us (our advisers!) - to cheer up. to aim and force! And it is possible that the death of the Iranian leader of Hezbollah is not so sudden (alas, the Persians do not take a blow, like the Syrians!, And the problem of autocracy in the Syrian Army must be somehow solved!).
