Russian Command liquidates militant group that attacked base in Syria


… from Sputnik News, Moscow

The swarm drone attack on the Russian bases was defeated

[ Editor’s Note: Well this didn’t take very long, and the Russians were slick about it. They hit the storage base first, expecting the Jihadis wanting exit the area once they got the news.

This was a classic artillery ambush and it may be the last video we see of a rare event like this. Look how fast the jihadis unload out of their vehicle, running to transfer to one inside, probably planning to leave at night.

They did not have to wait and sweat it out. This reminds me of the old saying, “Revenge is best served cold. The Russians were sending a message by putting this video out, “Attack our bases at your peril.”

Putin had mentioned in his recent press conference that he knew who the perps were. They should have all split up in different directions. The last thing you do is travel as a “group” in a situation like that where any idiot among you can blow your position by making a cel phone call and get a drown launched at youJim W. Dean ]

Russian artillery has destroyed a depot storing militants’ drones located in the Idlib province.

The Russian Defense Ministry has announced that the group of militants that conducted a massive mortar attack targeting the Russian Hmeymim base in Syria on December 31 were eliminated in the course of a special operation.

“During the final stage of the operation, a group of Russian Special Operations Forces established the location of the subversive group of militants near the western border of the Idlib province. 

Upon the terrorists’ arrival at the facility where they were preparing to board to a minibus, the entire sabotage group was destroyed by a Krasnopol high-precision artillery shell,” the Russian military said in a statement.

According to the Defense Ministry, the operation involved all the forces and means of a multi-level system of Russian military intelligence in Syria.

Separately, Russian military intelligence units have discovered and destroyed a depot in the Idlib province controlled by so-called “moderate opposition” used to store strike drones used to attack two Russian bases in Syria on January 6, the ministry added.

“Russian military intelligence has uncovered the site where terrorists assembled and stored unmanned aircraft-type drones in the Idlib province. The depot was destroyed by high-precision artillery ammunition ‘Krasnopol’.”

  1. A small piece of the $21 Trillion stolen from DOD and HUD. When will VT start reporting on the “financial coup”.

  2. It’s one thing to face your enemy and die in combat, as vulgar as that is, or brave; but to be blown to smithereens without notice… My stars, such a waste of life. Life is in its essence, precious.

    • “Do undo others, as they have done to you”. These guys alive, would have been a big moral boost to the jihadis, and could have split up into 5 or 6 teams to trains other in the craft. It’s line killing a snake, you have to cut the head of. Ask Stormy Daniels.

    • @Jim W. Dean
      but on a Hydra like this you have to kill the heart once and for all. Find the heart and kill it. You know who they are.

    • Those dumb fuc-s, lied to like all soldiers; never saw it coming. If you want to cut off the head of the snake, you have to go higher up on the food chain. Plato’s noble lie applies, ad infinitum, ad nauseum. A prayer to all people in a fox hole, wishing they were home with loved ones.I think that is 100 per cent of all fox hole inhabitants.

  3. You guys know much more than I ever will on military operations. This one seems amazing to me. The Russians say that it was a guided shell that hit those militants as they decanted from the van. Given that the shell had to travel from possibly miles away how on earth did that SOF team get that shell fired at exactly the right time and place when the arrival time of the van had some variability in it?

    • It means they had a drone following the incoming car and were probably tapped into their communications about “leaving”. The shell flight time from firing to strike would have been easy to calculate. Now if the incoming van had stopped for someone to pee, things would have been different. These shells by the way can be “flown” via the tv camera in the nose. VT people proposed to Iraq using its large amount of 155 howitzers left behind to be forward deployed to interdict jihadi attack columns coming out of Iraq. A couple of modern blimps could fly twelve hour shifts economically as spotters for the artillery. What a 6 gun battery of howitzers can do to a sq mile grid in two minutes is really something. The Iraqis thought such an attack was a fantasy. They were wrong.

  4. You have once again proved your integrity by updating this story and with video. CNN what do you “report” on.
