Russian Aerospace Forces launched a revenge operation for the death of a general in Syria

Russian warplanes, supported by the SAR air force, attacked ISIS (a Russian-banned organization) positions in eastern Homs, destroying the terrorist group's hideouts near the administrative border of Deir ez-Zor province. This is reported by the AMN resource.

Russia's aerospace forces recently stepped up their operations in central Syria after jihadists ambushed the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces in rural Al Mayadin and in the Badia Al Sukhna area.

The operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces is a response to the death of Major General Vyacheslav Gladkikh, who served as a military adviser to the Syrian Armed Forces. The death of a Russian general became result detonation of an improvised device of militants near the highway along which a column of Russian military police was moving. The incident took place on August 18, 15 km from Deir ez-Zor.

Terrorists have used the coronavirus pandemic to carry out ambushes and raids against Syrian government forces and its allies, while wreaking havoc further east into areas under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces. The SAR army responded to these attacks by sending reinforcements to this vast desert region; however, the militants managed to escape, hiding in one of the many caves between the provinces of Deir ez-Zor, Homs, Al-Raqqa and Al-Sveida.

      They showed footage of the blowing up of the major general and the Syrian commander, an insultingly stupid accident - the commanders, passing along the side of the road from the side of a stopped column and stepped on a trap left by a VOP-mine with a power of up to a kilo of explosives ... It seems that there was a small crater from the previous explosion , so we left a trap ... Such a random passage is difficult to direct, but anything can be. Of course, the guards must look at their feet, not only around ...

      And how to blow up smartly? It's good that at least the epithet "funny" was not added for the catchphrase ...
      So that the infa is not empty, is it necessary to announce the entire list of bandits by family name, each destroyed their shelter, warehouse?

    Again from the cannon to the sparrows, here it is not necessary to chase the barmaley, here it is necessary to neutralize their source of power, that is, Erdogan, but he, unfortunately, is one of the respected partners.

      Better to withdraw troops from Syria, this is not our war.

        Better to finish off ISIS on foreign territory than wait until they enter Russian territory. An example is the Chechen war, which killed civilians and citizens of Russia.

      When did we provide humanitarian aid to the bandits?

      You stole twenty thousand from me, ”he said to his debtor,“ but I am not taking revenge on you, because only low souls take revenge.

    They will take revenge - by carpet bombing of the desert with expired ammunition produced in 1940-1945. ...

      Carpet bombing, this is a US and RF method not used. Here is the cleaning up of the warehouses of the 70s and 80s, so yes, and with benefit, and combat experience is also being gained ... Not like under Taburetkin, they blew up without looking back on orders, with that haste, up to a dozen servicemen died ...
