Syrian army advances under Russian air cover, sparks fiercest clashes ever

… from  Russia Today, Moscow
Syrian government troops backed by Russian air forces have started a large-scale offensive against ISIS terrorists and have already established control over a number of areas in different Syrian provinces.

The Syrian Arab Army has made significant progress in eliminating ISIS terrorists and destroying their command centers, ammo depots and vehicles in the Free Zone in Aleppo, as well as in 13 further towns and villages and two areas spanning Hama and Latakia provinces, the General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced in a statement on Monday.

The regime forces have been engaged in heavy fighting since the beginning of Russia’s anti-terror operation in Syria. Russia’s airstrikes mainly concentrate on the borders of Hama, Idlib and Latakia.

Control has been established over the towns and villages in the northern countryside of the Hama province including Kafar Nabouda, Oum Harten, Sekik, Tal Sekik, Tal al-Sakher, and al-Bahsa and others, the statement said as reported by Syria’s SANA news agency.

Terrorists were ousted from the northern countryside of Lattakia province with Syrian troops establishing control over the towns of Jub al-Ahmar, Kafar Delbe, Katef Jouret al-Batikh hills and Ruwaiset Khandaq Jamo, according to the statement.
The Free Zone area in Aleppo province is also under the command of the Syrian army.

The EU foreign ministers expressed concerns over Russia’s involvement saying during meetings in Luxembourg, its airstrikes hit not IS targets but “moderate” rebels and “must cease immediately.”

The Russian Defense Ministry has been maintaining that Russian aircraft inflict almost surgical airstrikes on IS installations. Apart from those, only the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra front was targeted in one strike.

  1. What do i add “drbhelth” says it all.

    Oh! why not a regime change in the U.S., Israel, Germany, France, Italy (Vatican), Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, Qutar, Switzerland, UAE & last but not the least in UK and London that’s a separate state like the vat & IS (Israeli State/Sycopaths).

  2. “The EU foreign ministers expressed concerns over Russia’s involvement saying during meetings in Luxembourg, its airstrikes hit not IS targets but “moderate” rebels and “must cease immediately.”…………….. Putin says in the famous words of Roddy Piper… “…and I’m all outa bubblegum”.

  3. “moderate rebels”, is that like “a little pregnant”?
    those EU jerks should be arrested for trying to aid terrorist mercenaries.

  4. Any statement by EU foreign ministers, that supports troops rebelling against the Assad government, reflects continued support for the removal of president Assad. Such statements reveal that the EU foreign ministers continue to behave as puppetry of Israeli leadership. ISIS, the army of Israel´s MOSSAD and its subordinate the US CIA, is carrying out the intended destruction that is directed by Israeli leadership. A hack of a Netanyahu staff computer revealed Israel´s coordination with ISIS leadership.
    No doubt, Snowden has documents revealing details of Israel´s secretive army, ISIS. The ISIS army is being used to ignite a religious war between Moslems and Christians. Of course, Islam is being scapegoated, IAW Judaism´s custom.

    __”Insurgents have fired two shells at the Russian embassy in the Syrian capital as scores of pro-government supporters gathered outside the compound to thank Moscow for its intervention in Syria”.

  6. Surgical airstrikes on military targets are what Germay did in WW2. That is why they used the Stuka so much and Germany flew grass airstrips during WW2 because even their largest bombers were very small.

    The halocaust bombing of civilian populations, the deliberate extermination of women and children, was the specialty of the USAF (Curtis Lemay) and The Royal Air Force (Bomber Harris).
