Fights near Aleppo exposed the differences between Russia and its allies

Fights near Aleppo exposed the differences between Russia and its alliesAfter the advance of the Syrian troops on Rakku choked, the fighting moved to other areas of the country. Mostly under Aleppo, where the clashes do not stop for a minute. And it was there that unexpectedly clearly manifested contradictions between the government army and its allies, primarily Russia and Iran.

The Government’s Syrian Arab Army (CAA) is the main military instrument of power, which is supported by Russian military contingents, intelligence, advisers and auxiliary units. It is with the General Staff of the CAA in Damascus, as well as with its representatives and senior officers in the field that the Russian base Chemeim coordinates its work.

This, however, goes without saying, since legally the Russian contingent is in Syria at the invitation of the government, and its powers are governed by interstate agreements and treaties. Finally, the system of unity of command must work even in the Arab world, therefore, the CAA and its General Staff are the highest military authority of Damascus, which plans military operations against jihadists. How and how successfully she does it is another question. It is important that the Syrian General Staff should contact all its allies, building a hierarchy of military submission and bringing orders to execution, while the Russian HVAC is only a tool of international assistance, and not a political argument. And precisely in this part in the last week and a half there was a clear misunderstanding, which is especially pronounced in the battles in and around Aleppo.

In the past eight days, the VKS RF has repeatedly struck areas to the north of Aleppo. Their participation played a key role in advancing parts of the CAA (primarily the Tigers assault division) in the Mallah farmland area, which are occupied by Dzhebhat al-Nusra and Harakat Nuriddin al-Zinki. Russian bombers attacked all the reinforcements of the jihadists before they could reach the front line. At the same time, objects and positions of Islamists in the mountains of Hanadat and the Anadan Valley were subjected to bombardment, the planes made up to 30 sorties a day.

Against this background, the 4-I mechanized division of government troops on Wednesday morning launched a new offensive in the northern sector - already in the city of Aleppo. The preliminary target was the industrial development area between the districts of al-Khalidiya and al-Layramun. Al-Khalidiya is now virtually cleared, but al-Lairamun is still controlled by jihadists (and quite a long time).

CAA promotion is extremely slow. In addition, in this area there are no key, iconic points, the seizure of which would be propaganda attractive. There is a heavy war routine that no one likes. The same Tiger division, considered elite (commanded by the well-known in Syria, Colonel Suhail Hassan) will not move until the Russian bombers have completed their positions in front of her. Even the message about the breakthrough of the first line of defense of the jihadists in Mallach was two days late, and there is still no information about the success of the offensive. And this is in an Arab country where good newsAs a rule, they are ahead of the event itself.

Local sources directly link this with the fact that in the morning of June 30 Russian planes did not take off. At all. After eight days of intense raids on the position of jihadists north of Aleppo, the VKS took time out and the CAA immediately stopped. Apparently, drink coffee.

More confusing is the situation south of Aleppo, where there is a war of all against all. The forces of the so-called moderate opposition periodically try to discourage several neighborhoods and gardens south and south-west of the city from ISIS, and the jihadists, in response, attempt to move westward. The presence of Iran is large in this area, both in the form of so-called volunteer units and in the form of units of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards officially present in the country. The Shiite militia is formally independent, but it focuses more on Iranian generals than on the General Staff in Damascus.
At the same time, Iranian and Shiite units south of Aleppo do not receive air support from the Russian Federation Air Force. Deprived of air support and the Kurds who surrounded Manbij. Americans fly to them extremely rarely and mostly not with combat missions, but with transport ones (that is, “donkeys work”, dropping cargo, fearing to drop to a dangerous height due to suspicions about the appearance of American MANPADS at ISIL). As a result, the Shiites and Kurds began to suffer heavy losses, which led to their sharp reaction to what was happening.

Accusations of treason rained down against Russian videoconferencing, but the notion that “Russia fell into the trap of the United States” dominates, agreeing to divide the zones of air responsibility and continue the endless process of separating “clean” oppositionists from “unclean”. The “peacemaking” is particularly annoying for the Allies - concluding local ceasefire agreements with specific groups that were not seen in ISIL relations, or with mukhtars (elders-mayors) of certain localities and local militia commanders.

This information wave has so far emanated exclusively from Tehran and its allied Beirut. Other Shiite allies of Damascus (for example, Hezbollah, completely independent in terms of making tactical military decisions) are involved in local operations in other regions of the country, without poisoning their consciousness with similar conspiracy constructs. Thus, on the Syrian-Lebanese border on Thursday morning, government forces, with the support of Hezbollah, destroyed several water pumps supplying drinking water to an ISIL base in the Jarud Jarajir region in the Kalamoun mountains. At the same time, the CAA and Hezbollah launched a military operation against terrorists in the same mountains, as recently the ISIS units attacked the Lebanese settlement of Jarud Ka'a and committed pogroms of non-Sunni populations there. At the same time, the CAA and Hezbollah emphasize that they received all the necessary intelligence information both on the ISIL camp and on the location of the water pumps from the “Russian advisers”. The situation is similar in the Golan Heights.
From the point of view of circles close to Tehran, Russia should “still push” in the Aleppo area, intensifying the bombardment of the positions of jihadists and “secular” oppositionists south of the city. And the point here is not that Russian air strikes are few. The fact is that they are consistent with Damascus and are aimed at supporting the actions of primarily government troops, and not the Persians or PMCs. The recent abandonment of the front under Rakka by the lauded Eagles of the Desert, by the way, is another argument in favor of dealing with the General Staff in Damascus, and not with a dozen small centers of influence.

Shiites and PMCs nevertheless continue to appeal to Moscow, openly demanding direct support. The more losses the Persians are south of Aleppo and the Kurds around Manbij, the more insulting the style that “talking heads” use in Tehran and Beirut. The current trend is something like “putinsley” in Persian, and the lack of departure of bombers with Hamim is considered almost a betrayal due to weather conditions.

This is already quite annoying. The Russian operation in Syria has been going on for almost 9 months, during which time outstanding military and political successes were achieved. But some participants in the events were so accustomed to Russian help - and aviation, and intelligence, and humanitarian - that ceased to feel without her. If a large white steel bird with a red star on its wings does not arrive, some will not distort the shutter.

Russia is facing this is not the first time, but in the East, such a parasitism on a blue-eyed and reliable ally sometimes takes extreme forms. Even mentally self-sufficient Kurds sat down on the mountains around Manbij, without any progress, than gave the initiative to LIH, and now they are sluggishly fighting off bagged jihadists, who have nowhere to go, so they are ready to go. Hence the large-scale use of suicide bombers to break through the first line of defense and destroy fortifications. In this regard, the death of June, a Russian soldier Andrei Timashenkov, who took the bomber’s suicide attack attempt to attack a humanitarian convoy in Homs province, is particularly revealing. Similar attacks on the positions of Persians, Shiites, Kurds and various PMCs end with the destruction of the front and heavy losses, as was the case, for example, with the recent ISIS counter-attack under Raqqa.
The blame for this “misunderstanding” lies partly in Damascus, which really “privatized” Russian military aid and does not want to share with anyone. It will not be possible to break the mentality of the Persians and other allies, he, too, is part of the game, but the CAA General Headquarters still needs to attend to a clearer planning of strategic operations. Determine the priorities and easily explain them to all allies, spreading them along the appropriate perches. And if the throwing between several strategic goals continues at the same time, the case may reach open sabotage.

        It is not a matter of unity of command, but of the desire to fight with the wrong hands. The peoples of the Middle East have always been famous for this. In part, they can be understood — fatigue from the war, and the material base of the army is far from ideal — but this does not simplify the situation.

          Except Israel. They always fought for themselves, and the materiel was such that everyone around was envious. Tired - maybe in the entire history of the country they did not have one peaceful day, a maximum ceasefire. But in this case, a good war is better than a bad world (return to the borders of 1948 and the reception of refugees).

        Well, if you recall, problems of this kind haunted the USSR, and now the Russian Federation. This applies to both Arabs and Egyptians, now in Syria. The mentality of the population living in those parts of the country is peculiar, which Primakov spoke about many times.

          Why so in this article? Well, the allies grabbed for air support. This is not only the allies, but even in neighboring units of the same army is the place to be. Another thing is that rhetoric from the Iranians is rotten. But this once again confirms that Russia does not have real allies, only fellow travelers. But this is not a reason to turn their nose away from them, you just need to use them to your advantage.

        For example, the JAF has a single command (well, in general, the JAF coalition itself was made by Nusra, Ahrar and Jude Al Asoy - it has already come out by the way - with the aim of starting concentrated strikes and a common strategy). And they are working quite effectively - they are fighting off South Aleppo, village by village and have already approached Khader (in fact, all the calm there, this is the preparation of the Babakhs for the "New Offensive" - ​​which will begin from day to day). At the same time, they are maneuvering forces, repelling the attacks of Liwa Al Quds in the north near Handarat, straightening other crises and developing sudden successes - like yesterday at Kinsaba in Latakia (it was precisely a maneuver by forces, for assault units were Uzbeks from Tawhid Jihad and Caucasians from Val Asar - which previously operated in South Aleppo), where JAF + coastal + Turkomans achieved major successes, taking not only strategic positions, but also a ton of whole equipment, according to the final reports:
        4 tanks (all on the go, refueled)
        3 IFVs in a parked park (all on the go, refueled)

            In five years of grueling war, little is left of the Syrian army. Help was needed in 2012, when the army controlled 70% of the territory, then it was possible to get off with the supply of weapons. And now, the country is in ruins, the economy is destroyed, the losses are approaching 500 thousand, 7 million refugees. Now people are needed there more than equipment, during the war trained personnel have been depleted, you can just watch films about how the war for Jobar, Al-Kabun was going on, the storming of every house, every entrance, and so on for several years in all cities. Syria is not something that at the moment cannot fight without our support, it is Alexander by and large in agony, it is completely exhausted. This is what mattress makers did and they did it. I wrote for a long time that if in 2012-2013 we do not help with weapons, then we will have to harness ourselves. This also applies to the Iranians, but they allocated several billion greens for the war, and this played a role in 2013. Then we needed "Solntsepeki", new MiGs, "Hurricanes" and "Tornadoes", well-protected tanks, artillery and much more. And now there are several brigades of specialists and a lot of poorly trained militia, which simply does not know how to fight with professional rebels, who were trained by mattress specialists for a couple of years. In Syria, the Mi-35 (28), "Solntsepeki", were needed even more than in Iraq, since it is Syria that is of strategic importance to us, but what happened happened, we realized it later. More than the Syria that we knew, most likely will not be. For us, Syria is one of the fires near our house, which had to be extinguished by any means at the beginning, and not wait until it starts to spread on us. Probably the same can be said about Donbass, and about the entire South-East of Ukraine (this is of course my personal opinion).

    You quickly get used to the good. Do good a couple of times, you’ll sit on your neck. And they will persuade you to do this good. Moreover, this is the East. Until the Syrian general staff is completely controlled by the Russian military, this will continue. And it is not surprising that in the future Assad may blackmail Russia over the stay of our bases there. Why are the declared elections delayed in Syria? Is it because the alignment is not changing in Assad’s favor? Moreover, the idea of ​​reconciliation with Turkey popped up very unexpectedly. Is it really all about a formal apology for the downed plane and the proposal to the relatives of the pilot Peshkov to donate a house on the Turkish coast as compensation for harm? Or a coalition proposal for closer cooperation with our VKS? The NATO Summit and the urgent dispersal of the leadership of the Baltic Fleet. Some sort of shuffling of the global political deck went.

      And what would Assad do without the IRGC, Hezbollah, the Afghans and the air forces?
      Or do you think they are all exclusively interested in the interests of Russia or Syria?

        What, Assad does not give rest? No matter how much you beat him, but he still costs. A worthy partner for GDP. And, by the way, really, the Asadov clan is so far the only ones who have never once done a word or a deal to Russia. Even in the worst years for Russia - in the 90. This is the most sincere ally of Russia. And to surrender them on our part would be meanness.
        However, I do not think that the GDP and the oligarchs are so sentimental. The interests of the Russian Federation in Syria are not in supporting Assad, but in retaining this territory through control of the Syrian regime. What for? The question is big, but at least so that this territory is not controlled by you - that is, the West.

          if you think about it, then perhaps you will come to the conclusion that Israel is pleased with the Assad regime and not the civilian Sharia of the rabble that is fighting against it ..
          Think about what would happen if Israel openly supported Assad?
          how would this affect the motivation of his opponents?

    The article is largely true.
    There is no fundamental difference in the universal plan between the Ayatollahs and the Arabian Sunnis, as the various Syrian inhabitants are very similar to each other. And there is a tendency to parasitism.
    But it is necessary to bomb intensively. The material basis of the war in ISIS, etc., must be eliminated.

    Everything develops like a "Rubik's Cube", the longer you spin, the fewer options. We are losing the information war again. The Americans, supporting the "good terrorists", shout every time that the Aerospace Forces is attacking the wrong ones, thereby securing the support of an increasing number of "good" ones. Discontent should be extinguished not so much with bombs as with active propaganda, and this is Assad's task, otherwise all our efforts and sacrifices are pointless, Assad will be forced to leave - we will follow.

    I did not understand the meaning of the reproach of the SAA army (Tigers division) in terms of the fact that without air support they would not attack the militants. If it is possible to reduce losses to a minimum, why is it necessary to "rush with your bare chest into the embrasure", not counting the loss, what kind of tactic is this, to overwhelm the enemy with your corpses. The Americans, for which they are advanced, and while the aviation and artillery in front of them will not clear everything, they will take a step forward, but here, like the CAA army, cowards, since they are waiting for air support, and do not rush with bayonets at the fortified positions of the militants, overwhelming them with their corpses.
    And as for the Persians, Kurds and all kinds of PMCs, they want support, let them play according to our rules, otherwise we get air support for them, without which they turned out to be almost helpless, and all their successes turned out to be thanks to American help or Tehran.

      In addition, as for me, the marking time is also determined by the fact that the "legally elected" would-be dictator is not an authority even in his own country. Well, the people want to be killed in large numbers in his honor, shouting "For the Motherland, for Assad!" (I would not go either - it’s too lean and gloomy). He more and more migrates to Europu, or defends his own enclaves with weapons in his hands (the Kurds are the same), but he wanted to sneeze on a single, indivisible Syriyashka.

              They are sometimes Shiites and sometimes not. It should not be forgotten that one of the principles of the Alawite teachings is "Taqiya" - "caution", which allows them to hide the true religion in times of danger and trouble. But this is not the only reason why they are hated by the Sunnis. Assad clearly realizes that, having lost the war, the Alawites are doomed to practically cutting out, you saw ISIS.

        The Alawites in Syria are so few that they would have killed everyone, even with the help of Russia, Iran and Hezbollons. There are only 2,5 million of them in Syria.

    This is a lyrical digression not related to the article.
    In the 90s, I often visited Syria as a sailor, visited the ports of Tartus and Latakia. The impression of the country and its inhabitants remained the most favorable. As in most Arab countries, city streets are a continuous bazaar, with densely packed shops, in each of which you are invited. But there was one significant difference, a purely "Syrian marketing ploy", and I have not seen anything like this in any other Arab country (and I have visited a lot of them). You go into the store, the owner or the seller meets you and says, they say you will look at the goods later, but for now - sit down, have a drink and have a bite, dear comrade! The treats were completely free, the usual set of treats was beer with salted nuts and whiskey with fried chicken. Whiskey, of course, local, inexpensive (as I remember now its strange name for a Russian person "EBLA", the same company produced wine and cigarettes), but quite "edible". So, you sit, drink, eat, talk. During this "banquet" store employees unobtrusively show you different goods. The marketing ploy is designed for the conscience of the buyer. In any case, they won't take money for treats from him, even if he doesn't buy anything. But ... "I was so well greeted, fed - watered, I must at least buy something!" Well, of course, a drunk person is easier to part with money, that is, the decision to buy or not is much easier! Buy of course! Many of our sailors scratched their sick heads the next morning, looked around at the heaps of all sorts of garbage that they bought yesterday - and thought: "Well, but I had a rest!"
    And what has now been done with this country ...

This is the impression that someone really wants to drive a "wedge" into the ranks of the allies in order to discord the coordination of actions of the allies!

      In general, the last 2 months, there are continuous setbacks, almost everywhere.


      1) Palmyra, the IG squeezed the city, three days ago, the troops fled from 7 positions in the hills. The IG is already occupying part of the heights, and they are the keys to the city. There is still a sudden complication of the 11-kilometer IG convoy from Anbar, about half of it was burned by the Mi-35, Mi-28 and F-16 of the Iraqi Air Force, but perhaps up to two thousand broke into Syria, they will go to DeZ and Palmyra.

      2) Raid on Raqqa - rolled back to the starting point in Itria, the IS scared offensives and removed the strike force, partly north, part south (where they had already crushed the New Syrian vinaigrette, having taken away their weapons and pickups, while still blowing up the block with 6 Jordanians - but this is the pain of Abdala and the United States).

      3) South of Aleppo - Yeys and all heights are lost, Khan-Tuman is lost, which allowed approaching the Babakhs in Aleppo itself at the closest distance since September 2015, and this is the Syrian army in the city, Karasi, Halasa and the whole balcony are lost On the Highway (Zeitan and Berne). As a result, from the onset of Suleymani in the fall of 2015 there was only Hader, for which the battles would begin just about.

      4) North of Aleppo - the regular attacks of Liva Al-Quds on Handarat end in no way (cross under fire to the hole in the fence). Fields Mallah, Sukhel was able to take them, then they departed for the night, they took them again the next day, they seem to be holding him (but this can be compared with Yeiss, he is not very important in itself, but if there are successes next, then he can play decisive role).

      5) Latakia, after a long lull and even attempts to attack the Army, the JAF transferred the Uzbeks to the Caucasians, and also cooperated with the coastal division of the SSA, the Turkoman and others - as a result, they occupied important heights and Kinsaba, taking trophies, which in principle doubled their strength in Latakia armored vehicles (4 serviceable tanks and 3 infantry fighting vehicles).

      6) The Rastan enclave, to the south of Hama - one successful attack of the Babakhs, when the SAA appealed, saying a truce, we sent the troops out, and we took the village from us and cut out the inhabitants. The second less successful attack, they somehow dragged tanks and fresh bearded men into the ring and struck north to Hama - taking 6 villages on the move, but then the SAA threw reinforcements from everywhere and after 2 days of bombing of the airborne forces, it repulsed, like, only 1 village Now for the 6 women.

        And what do you suggest? Keep defense in the desert? To the east of Palmyra there is nothing to cling to. Therefore, the Syrians did not begin to move further. And the militants take advantage of this and arrange raids. as they lost the hills, they will return it.

        Raid on Racca - rolled back to the starting point in Itria,


        the Americans threatened to bomb, so they rolled away, what does the failure of the offensive have to do with it? I didn’t understand the point of going to Raqqa at all, it’s clear that this is the Amer’s zone of influence, most likely they frightened me so that the Kurdish Americans would make them move faster.

        South of Aleppo - Yeys and all heights are lost, Khan-Tuman is lost, which allowed


        I do not really know the situation around Aleppo, but if the SAA is surrounded, then why do they clean up neighborhoods and carry out offensives in urban areas, rather than trying to break through? Not logical.

          1) On Palmyra there are still T3, granaries, dominant heights - all these are smart people of Slavic appearance, at one time occupied. Assad drove into the repelled position 11 td Assad and entrenched. But, now, for the most part, she is retreating (if not truthfully, she is running at the sight of blacks). Let me remind you, when Black took Palmyra - the battle was fought mainly for heights, and the troops retreated from the City, when Palmyra fought back, battles also fought for heights, and Black fled from the city ... All positions of the distant contour in the east were lost, almost all South.

          2) Who will be bombed ??? What are you about??? The Americans, on the other hand, officially welcomed the strike on Tabka. Blacks threw reserves, cut the group bypassing along the highway + launching dozens of shahidmashiny (according to their report, they launched 85 past stages).

          3) So there is no environment, but they squeezed everything tightly, going south of the city to the borders of September 2015, that is, to put the army’s communications at risk. The offensive of Suleymani - last fall, allowed to completely remove the threat from the communications of the city. Now he has only Hader left, which the Baboons are preparing to storm.

    tactically, you can play war for a long time extorting money from the Jews hiring bandits like the "French Foreign Legion"; well, the bandyugans are returning to the same ruins that have no meaning for Syria; strategically, of course, it is necessary to somehow protect those cities and villages that are not yet destroyed and where at least some kind of life glimmers

    Does anyone know the total number of barmalei? intelligence reports? statistics? ... It seems that the SAA is tired of fighting, or they dispersed the sensible ... what is the ratio of numbers? I’m silent about the forces, because it has dried up in the CAA .. the advantage in technology harms more, -the anger is dulled from a freebie- you can quit, pass the height, .. they will send it again, then, as soon as we take .... if they give it back.

    Can't worry too much about this company? .. maybe this old oriental fun? to ride with AK in the desert one after another and sing victory songs? Has anyone seen the Syrian factories that work day and night - "everything for the front, everything for victory"?

    Maybe I missed something .. correct

      The three largest broads are:
      Ahrar - about 20k fighters
      Nusra - 15-20k
      Jaysh Islam - about 20k
      Small groups allied to them (for example, the Turkmen Islamic Party, Uzbeks, Caucasians from Val Asra, etc., their mass of all kinds of Jude Al Aks / Jay Sham) - about 15k more.

      SSA - but they must be considered separately, they cannot maneuver by forces, the Central Division is about 2-3k with TOU, the Coastal Division is up to 2k, the Turkoman are up to 5k. In general, SSA from 30k to 60k depending on who evaluates (plus, again, they are not one force, but scattered throughout Syria - for example, the 99th division is now in the north of Aleppo and it is cut off from Assad by the Kurds, the Central and Coastal divisions never will not come to the aid of the southern teams of the SSA).

      Plus NSA (this is Abdala) and NSF (these are Americans and Erdogan).

      Plus Black.

      However, these are just numbers. Operations are usually carried out at a level of from 300 to a thousand fighters with 5-10 units of armored vehicles in active operations.

    it was there that the contradictions between the government army and its allies suddenly appeared brightly primarily Russia and Iran.

    Yesterday I read this article in Vzglyad and, frankly speaking, at first I was amazed at the information provided, which does not quite fit into the framework of the latest news. Then he calmly thought and came to the conclusion that the Syrian army and its allies really got used to the too tangible help of the Russian Aerospace Forces in 9 months. And the voiced accusations against Russia are neither the first nor the last. How many we helped and how many we saved from complete collapse, and then listened to accusations and insults against us. Therefore, I think we in Russia need to listen less to these, I don't even know what to call them, but just watch how our videoconferencing do their job.

    Yes, it is! "Praised" Arab heroes ...

    These Heroes have been holding against bearded men from all over the world for five years. The army has been bloodless. And it is not for us to judge them. Without Iran’s help, the Alawites will be massacred. There will never be another Syria.

    For whom, unexpectedly? Our troops, as it were, have officially been withdrawn, the operation has been stopped, the victory has been won (according to Putin), what kind of unity of command are we talking about? If Russia curtailed the operation, then to whom the troops should submit, it is obvious to those who continue the operation - the Syrian army under the leadership of Iran. Either there is nothing to discuss and there is nothing to discuss, or they should be there, then you need to declare the continuation of the operation, indicate who commands what tasks are performed and then deal with local commanders and allies.

    Well, the Arab wars have always had their own specifics .. So history has ordered that the Arabs have their own military traditions, but 2000 years of "civilization" taught them how to fight ..

      Today, of course, experts and professionals on the history of the Middle East have gathered here, but let me tell you the pros, as an amateur, not Alawites, not Persians, not Afghans, not once Arabs.. Apart from Hezbalons and Druze, no one else has anything to do with Arabs. On the other hand, on the Sunni side, yes, most Arabs are there.
      Sorry for the amendment.

    Iran has never been and will not be an ally of Russia, as circumstances developed, as if they were with us along the way at a given moment in time. The Iranians have always been on their own wave, if necessary, they will forget who and what Russia is, let's not forget Afghanistan where and to whom Iran provided sponsorship and support for the struggle of the Soviet Union, and for me there is a Hezbollah and a terrorist organization remains. If, of course, it came to the collapse of Syria as a state, Iran would seize a good piece of Syrian territory.

    Dear, I didn’t want to write, but even at the beginning of the truce process, it was the VKS that needed to change the tactics of reconciliation, the VKS are doing a great job, and it’s decisive, but it is the VKS that is the link with the heterogeneous forces and it is not appropriate to “blame” everything on the allies, you need to think, what to do, how to coordinate the actions of all allied forces, and not "poke a finger"
