Default Syrian Conflict

Quote:
The terrorist groups said on their social media pages that Kafi Fahd and Abu Libia from the so-called "Asifet al-Hazm Battalion" and the leader of "Sayyed al-Shuhadaa Hamzeh Battalion", nicknamed as Abu Hamza, were killed during clashes in the Northern countryside of Lattakia.

Earlier reports said the Russian fighter jets' air raids on the terrorist positions across the coastal province of Lattakia left at least 40 militants dead, including Basel Zimmo (Abu Hamza) a senior commander known as the King of US TOW antitank missiles.

Basel Zimmo is the most senior Western-backed rebel to die since Russia entered the war: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...-a6701811.html

And Assad is here in Moscow, meeting with Putin: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/1...064340109.html


His army is "making progress" against the terrorists on the ground, with Russian and Iranian help, about damn time, couple million Russian tax dollars going every day into the operation there, better be worth it:

Quote:
The Syrian army has made significant progress on Thursday in the southern countryside of Aleppo amid a collapse within the ranks of the militants, sources from the ground told Al-Manar Website.

The Syrian military also seized control over the villages of Jouret Aljahash, Rasm al-Sheikh Qiqan, Deir Saliba, and Kafr El-Obeid, while keep advancing toward the Ayyubid village under artillery fire and missile attacks targeting dens and assembly points of the armed terrorists in the area.

Moreover, in the north countryside of Lattakia, fierce clashes erupted between the Syrian army and armed groups on the Red Jobb - Salma axis, as the Russian warplanes were targeting the gunmen's centers and gatherings in the same area, under Syrian artillery bombardment of the targeting the militants' points of deployment in the place.

In Hama, SANA news agency reported that an army unit clashed last night with large numbers of terrorists who attacked a military post in al-Hamra village in the northeastern countryside of the central Hama province.

Field sources reported that the clashes left at least 30 terrorists dead, noting that most of those were foreigners.

Two tanks, a 23 mm cannon, an anti-tank machinegun and 6 vehicles transporting dozens of terrorists were destroyed in the confrontations, the source said.

Another army unit destroyed a bulldozer for terrorists near al-Latamneh town in the northern countryside of Hama province.

In Deir Ezzor, Syrian army units eliminated all the group operatives of the so-called 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' (ISIL) takfiri organization who attempted to infiltrate the surroundings of Deir Ezzor airport.

According to SANA, an army unit expanded its control towards the Ceramic Factory in al-Mrei’iyeh village, 10km east of Deir Ezzor, killing 14 ISIL terrorists and injured others positioned inside the factory, while other terrorists escaped.

The army artillery force targeted ISIS terrorists’ gatherings in the vicinity of al-Seyasiyeh Bridge on the northern entrance of Deir Ezzor city, inflicting heavy losses upon the terrorists in personnel and equipment.

Another army unit targeted a hideout for ISIS terrorist in al-Sena’a neighborhood, resulting in destroying it with all its arms and killing the terrorists who were inside it .

More dens and vehicles for terrorists were destroyed in army airstrikes in al-Mrei’iyeh and al-Jafra.

Anyway, nice to see the air force doing good over there

No offense to my American friends here, I know your government likes those "rebels", on the off chance our ground forces have to go to battle there, the less "Kings of TOWs" are alive there, the better. I hope, after this, all the "rebels" understand that picking up the munitions dropped by USA means Russian pilots will then be dropping you a present too, only a much less pleasant one

The engagement in Syria, despite Russia, so far, avoiding actually sending it's men into battle on the ground there, well, regular men.

There is confirmed presence of Russian "volunteers" or "mercenaries" on the ground, like Maksim Vaganov, who fights with the Kurdish forces


His Instagram: https://instagram.com/vaganoff_max/

Boy is a veteran of Donbass, apparently, even has a DPR medal for fighting in Slavyansk. Also is former Russian Airborne, or "former", could be still in the ranks, certainly looks young enough. There is a pic of him meeting the commander of the Airborne, general Vladimir Shamanov (that guy who looks like William Shatner from Star Trek, the current old and fat Shatner, not the young 1960s one lol)

I have also found a certain Ali Aliev, Russian citizen from Dagestan, fighting with the Peshmerga in Iraq



His Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?i...urce=typeahead

There is information about three Russian volunteers, so far, who have been martyred in Syria, though they were all fighting with Syrian government forces, not Kurdish militia.

Anyway, despite not having any "official" ground engagement yet, the Russian defense industry is already being tested in ways it hasn't been in many years.

The big missile factory of the "Strategic Rocket Arms Corporation" in Korolyov, near Moscow



has switched to a three shift 24 hour operation, to increase output, and other bomb and missile makers also had to ramp up production, to constantly meet the demand of the Air Force for more and more munitions to drop on whoever they are dropping them on in Syria




The Navy, meanwhile, has purchased 8 transport ships from Turkey, as well as requisitioned civilian cargo ships from Russian companies, to constantly ferry those bombs and missiles and other supplies from Russia to Syria. Even the huge Antonov planes of the Air Force are not enough for it, apparently.
http://www.mk.ru/politics/2015/10/26...zza-sirii.html

This is a first such military adventure for Russia in a very long time. Certainly will be interesting to see if our MIC, as well as the military itself, will be up to the task.

So far, they do seem to be making a nice difference there.

Quote:
The Syrian Arab Army’s 45th Regiment of the 1st Armored Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces of Joureen and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – have been immersed in a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest) at the town of Al-Mansoura inside the Al-Ghaab Plains, where the Syrian Armed Forces are attempting to recapture a large chunk of territory they lost to the aforementioned Islamist group.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces were able to repel Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s (Jaysh Al-Fateh’s largest faction) three day long assault on the Al-Mansoura Grain Silos after a series of intense firefights that ended with the Islamist rebels retreating to the southern perimeter of Al-Mansoura.

Following the Syrian Armed Forces’ success at the Al-Mansoura Grain Silos, the Syrian Arab Army’s 45th Regiment carried out an assault on Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s defenses at Al-Mansoura’s southern perimeter, resulting in a violent exchange between the two parties before the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Helicopter Gunships entered the battle.

The Russian Air Force’s choppers and fighter jets pounded Jaysh Al-Fateh’s positions at Al-Mansoura, Al-Ziyarah, Al-Sirmaniyah, Al-Ghaniyah, Jisr Al-Shughour, and Al-Frikka, killing scores of enemy combatants and destroying several armored vehicles.

Finally, after the Russian Air Force fractured Jaysh Al-Fateh’s frontline defenses at Al-Mansoura, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to clear the aforementioned town and impose full control of it before nightfall on Sunday.

Today, meanwhile, Russian soldier from an Air Force ground support unit on the Latakia base died under mysterious circumstances, first it was said to be an accident, now - suicide. As always, with Putin's secrecy regarding military casualties, we will likely never know what really happened.

Also, Russia is apparently sending spec ops forces to Syria:

Quote:
Russia has sent a few dozen special-operations troops to Syria in recent weeks, Russian and Western officials say, redeploying the elite units from Ukraine as the Kremlin shifts its focus to supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Russia in late September launched a campaign of airstrikes in support of Mr. Assad’s government, and President Vladimir Putin has said Russian troops won't play a role in ground combat. But Russian military experts and officials say small numbers of special-forces units—whose missions are rarely acknowledged publicly—are also on the ground in Syria.

“The special forces were pulled out of Ukraine and sent to Syria,“ a Russian Ministry of Defense official said, adding that they had been serving in territories in eastern Ukraine held by pro-Russia rebels. The official described them as “akin to a Delta Force,” the U.S. Army’s elite counterterrorism unit.

A senior Western official also said a contingent of elite Russian forces was on the ground in Syria from eastern Ukraine. A U.S. defense official said one of their roles is to provide coordination between Syrian troops and Russian aircraft conducting airstrikes in support of the regime’s ground offensive.

Russia’s Defense Ministry declined to comment on the claims. It has said that some of its military specialists are helping to advise and train Syrian government forces on the Russian-made hardware they are getting.

The Russian ministry official said the assets sent to Syria in recent weeks include the Zaslon unit, trained to protect diplomatic assets and personnel. Nearly two dozen Russian military-intelligence officers are also on site to liaise with Mr. Assad’s military intelligence, the official said.

Robert Lee, a visiting scholar at Moscow-based defense industry think tank CAST, said boots on the ground could also improve the accuracy of airstrikes. “The use of forward ground troops to draw fire from enemy positions makes the use of air power much more effective,” he said.

Moscow has a long-standing military relationship with Damascus, and some Russian special forces were present in Syria even before the air campaign began Sept. 30. Those were concentrated near Tartus where Russia has a naval installation.

This unit is so secretive, this is literally the only photo of them anybody could find. Bloody spooks... Wonder what they will be up to in there...

And predictions of as quick Russian victory over ISIS in Syria may have been overly optimistic:

As pointed out before, the US dropped over SEVEN MILLION TONS of bombs on the Viet Cong junior varsity that didn't have an air force.

I wasn't aware that anyone had predicted a "quick Russian victory over ISIS". I certainly wouldn't expect one. Syria seems like a quagmire.

So far, Russia appears to be following a US-style action - with a targetted air and missile campaign to support special forces operations. That 'small-footprint' combination has never really been proven to actually work. If Russia really wants to crush ISIS, Russia will need several divisions of Russian combat troops in Syria to do it, and I really don't think Putin wants to do that.

As it stands, Russia is supporting a longtime ally and her own strategic interests here. Whether one likes it or not, US doesn't have a monopoly on playing this kind of wargame. Russia's actions are in this case legal and constitute "just war" from a Russian perspective (also theoretically legal by UN Charter rules since Assad is legal government of Syria in a defensive war against foreign invaders).

Anyway, I don't think anyone can reasonably predict what's going to be the outcome of the present Syrian conflict. It seems like a strategic & tactical stalemate and a powder-keg at the same time.

The last thing this world needs is US and Russia/China to line up on opposite sides supporting a Sunni-Shia civil war.

Except for Osama and his 72 virgins who would look like this .

I'm not making any predictions, either, but would make two points.

Victor Hugo may have been on to something when he said "Armies cannot stop an idea whose time has come."

And, at one time the US had over 500,000 troops in Vietnam with the best equipment money can buy.

Breaking: Syrian Army Captures the Strategic Town of Ghannam in Northern Latakia

BY LEITH FADEL ON NOVEMBER 1, 2015 FEATURED

Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – have imposed full control over the strategic town of Ghannam in the Turkmen Mountains of northern Latakia.

According to a military source from the National Defense Forces inside the town of Slunfeh, the Syrian Armed Forces entered Ghannam earlier this morning after intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigades” and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” at the southern axis of this town – he added that the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Hind Helicopter Gunships led the way for the complete capture of Ghannam.

With Ghannam under their full control, the Syrian Armed Forces have positioned themselves along the strategic Aleppo-Latakia Highway (M-4 Highway) that is mostly under the control of the Islamist rebels – the bulk of this highway goes through the Idlib Governorate, which is under the complete of the Islamist rebels.

The Syrian Armed Forces will now focus on the remaining territory in Jabal Turkmen that is under the control of the Islamist rebels; this includes the imperative town of Al-Rabi’yah that is considered the headquarters of the Free Syrian Army’s Coastal Division.

ISIS Training Camp Destroyed in Deir Ezzor: Several Chechens and Tunisians Killed

BY LEITH FADEL ON NOVEMBER 2, 2015 FEATURED

The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) had a rough day inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Sunday, as the Syrian and Russian Air Forces relentlessly pounded their positions inside this desert province in eastern Syria.

However, unlike their previous airstrikes inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Russian and Syrian air raids were fixated on specific targets that are pertinent to the terrorist group’s success at the provincial capital and the Military Airport.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Air Force was provided satellite imagery from their Russian military advisors that revealed the location of ISIS’ primary training camp inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate; this prompted the Syrian Air Force to carry out several airstrikes over this base at the town of Al-Shamaytiyah in the Al-Tabous Mountains.

According to a military source inside the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, the training camp was reportedly destroyed – along with the terrorists inside the camp – by the Syrian Air Force’s airstrikes.

The source added that many of the casualties were reportedly Chechen, Tunisian, Moroccan, Libyan, Saudi, and Iraqi.

ISIS attempted to make-up for their losses at their training camp by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the village of Al-Muri’iyah; however, this assault ended in disaster for the terrorist group, as the SAA’s 137th Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division killed 17 enemy combatants, including “Abu Usama Al-Tunisi (Tunisian), Issa Nouress Al-Utaibah, and Yousif ‘Abdel-Qader Moussa.

Syrian Army and Hezbollah Make Huge Gains in Southern Aleppo: Military Operations Begin in Al-Hadher

BY LEITH FADEL ON NOVEMBER 2, 2015 FEATURED

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and several Iraqi paramilitary units – continued their large-scale offensive in the southern countryside of Aleppo, targeting the Islamist rebel forces at the small villages of Khirbat Al-Shalash, Tal Dadeen, Kafr Haddad, and Al-Shughaydilah near the strategic town of Al-Hadher.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance did not disappoint, as they first imposed control over Tal Dadeen and Khirbat Al-Shalash after intense firefights with the Islamsit rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA); these villages are located just south of the recently captured town of Hadidi and directly east of Al-Hadher’s axis.

Following the capture of Tal Dadeen and Khirbat Al-Shalash, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance were finally able to achieve break-through at the imperative village of al-Shughaydilah, where they successfully infiltrated the Islamist rebel defenses en route to imposing full control over this site located just north of Al-Hadher.

With three villages surrounding Al-Hadher under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance shifted their attention to Kafr Haddad, where they were confronted by a large contingent of Islamist rebel fighters from Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham; this violent engagement is still ongoing between the two opposing parties, but recent reports indicate that the pro-government forces are advancing.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance concluded the day by beginning their long-awaited military operations inside the integral rebel stronghold of Al-Hadher; this resulted in several clashes at the eastern and northern axis of this aforementioned town – no gains have been reported as of yet.

In addition to the participation of the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance, the Iraqi and Iranian/Afghani paramilitary units have also joined the fight against the Islamist rebels in southern Aleppo – among these reported groups are Harakat Al-Nuajaba, Kataeb Hezbollah, Liwaa Abu Fadl Al-‘Abbas, and Firqa Al-Fatameyyoun.

Something else you should know, my American and Canadian and European friends, these are people supported and armed and funded by your governments doing this

In order to deter the Syrian and Russian Air Forces inside the East Ghouta (collection of farms) region of rural Damascus, the U.S. backed moderate rebels from “Jaysh Al-Islam” (Army of Islam) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have placed kidnapped Alawite women in cages to protect themselves from airstrikes.

The U.S. backed Syrian Opposition’s social media activists posted the photos of the six kidnapped Alawite women on Twitter, adding their extra commentary that included sectarian insults to degrade the helpless women and taunt the Syrian President Dr. Bashar Al-Assad.
http://www.almasdarnews.com/article/...om-airstrikes/

Wonder if the good old CIA taught them that trick?

One last thing, about that air liner that went down in Egypt. I do not believe ISIS had anything to do with that, despite their stupid boasts. They do not have the technology to knock down a plane from such altitude, especially in Egypt.

On the other hand, the plane had old damage from a previous accident fourteen years ago, a "tail strike" during landing, which was never properly repaired. All we now assume is, something in there finally failed. In the usual tradition of our shoddy airline industry with their ever horrible safety record

Sad all those people had to pay for it with their lives, yet again. But, it looks like people may actually go to prison for it, this time.

Every bomb or drone strike that kills innocent men, women, and children enrages uncles, brothers, sisters, and so on to the extent that a lot of them are willing to die in order to kill even one of the perpetrators.

And so we see ISIS numbers grow with the bombing, not shrinking.

It's just human nature that the militarists refuse to accept. Their war colleges teach that firepower wins wars and they blindly accept that.

So, we will simply have to kill more of them? Brother, if there is anything we have plenty of in Russia, aside from oil and gas, it is bullets and bombs Enough for every fucking Arab who wants to fight us If it does turn out ISIS shot down that plane, I hope Putin REALLY unleashes hell on them...

You Americans remember Vietnam? Well, we remember Chechnya.

They tried that guerrilla terrorist shit on us, targeting civilians. In turn, we reduced their whole cities to rubble
Killed 50 Chechens for every Russian who they killed.

They had to either surrender or face annihilation, as a people. They did the wise thing.

We are capable of destroying entire nation, my friend, not only technologically, but mentally, morally. That is the difference between us and the West, we can and will kill as many of the enemy as needed to win, and also sacrifice as many of our own as necessary. 5,000 Russian men laid down in Chechnya. It did not matter.

We need strong leadership though. In Afghanistan, we did not have this, with Gorbachev. Now, with Putin, we do. He will go to the end.
