The Air Force of the Russian Federation continues air strikes against ISIS facilities on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.   
   
Engaged by the Russian aircraft, the militants suffer significant losses and are forced to change their tactics, to disperse their troops, to camouflage themselves thoroughly and to hide in inhabited areas. Under these conditions, we continue regular usage of aviation and build up the intensiveness of strikes for effective engagement.   
   
In the course of the last 24 hours, 67 combat sorties have been performed from the Hmeymim airbase. Su-34, Su-24M, Su-25SM hit 60 objects of terrorists.   
   
Among the targets there are command and communication centres, ammunition and POL depots, as well as training bases of terrorists in the provinces Raqqah, Lattakia, Hamah, Idlib and Aleppo.   
   
The attacks resulted in destruction of the following facilities:   
6 command and communication centres;   
6 ammunition and POL depots;   
17 training camps of terrorists;   
3 underground facilities of militants in the Lattakia province;   
16 fortified areas and defensive positions with armament and military hardware;   
11 concentration areas for reserves of the illegal armed groups;   
a plant for repairing of armoured vehicles;   
17 automobile and armoured vehicles;   
2 MLRS systems.   
   
The air strike in Raqqah, which is controlled only by the ISIS. Direct hit of KAB-500S high-precision bombs destroyed the HQ of the Liwa al-Haqq grouping.   
   
According to the radio interception, the airstrike resulted in elimination of two ISIS high-ranking field commanders and about 200 militants.   
   
Near Aleppo, an air strike was made against a militants base and a ammunition depot arranged in the building of a former prison. As a result, about 100 militants and the ammunition depot were destroyed.

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic continued airstrikes against ISIS infrastructures.   
   
Su-34, Su-24M and Su-25SM performed 64 combat sorties from the Hmeymim airbase engaging 55 ISIS objects.   
   
The increasing intensiveness of the combat sorties of the Russian aviation is connected with the raising number of detected ground targets registered by the means of air and space reconnaissance all over the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.   
   
During the initial stage of the operation, the Russian aircraft destroyed the main and the largest ISIS logistic centres.   
   
That caused considerable reduction of the combat potential of the illegal armed groups, as well as lowering their mobility and offensive capability.   
   
According to the radio interception, militants are suffering a severe lack of armament, ammunition and POL materials. A part of militants is demoralized and is leaving combat areas moving to the east and north-east of the Syrian Arab Republic.   
   
That is why active redeployment of armament, military hardware and transport means with terrorists ammunition aimed for the immediate restoration of combat capability of the active ISIS groups is registered all over the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic at the present time.   
   
In the course of the last 24 hours, the main objects for engagement were militants command and communication centres, ammunition depots, bases and training camps of terrorists in the Raqqah, Hamah, Damascus and Aleppo provinces.   
   
Su-24M bombers engaged a large fortified area to the east of Tel-   
Alam (Aleppo). There were equipped fire emplacements, mortar artillery positions as well as underground ammunition and food depots.   
   
The direct hit of a BETAB-500 air bomb caused detonation of munitions; all the engineer facilities were eliminated.   
   
Near Kwaiser settlement (Aleppo), a Su-24M made a strike against a militants base of military hardware. The direct hit resulted in destruction of over 10 vehicles including 2 tanks and 5 infantry fighting vehicles. Fire appeared, the shelters with military hardware were completely destroyed.   
   
   
Russian reconnaissance detected through several channels a command centre of illegal armed groups hidden in a mountain-woody area of the Idlib province. After analysis of the space image of this area and the air reconnaissance carried out by UAV,s the object was subjected to a pinpoint airstrike.   
   
According to the objective monitoring data, the destruction of the fortified constructions, where the command centre was situated, as well as elimination of 3 automobile vehicles of the militants was confirmed.   
   
The attacks of the Russian air group carried out within the last 24 hours resulted in destruction of the following objects:   
   
   
2 command centres;   
   
an ammunition depot in the Hamah province;   
   
29 field camps of terrorists;   
   
23 fortified areas and strong points with armament and military hardware.   
   
   
The active work aimed at increasing contacts with the foreign colleagues is being continued.   
   
The Russian Ministry of Defence has prepared a project of a joint interdepartmental document aimed at prevention of possible incidents in the air space of Syria between the military aircraft of Russia the ones of the coalition led by the USA.   
   
That project has been sent immediately through the established communication channels to the American party.   
   
Russian experts are ready for discussion of this project with representatives of the Pentagon.   
   
Today the Russian Ministry of Defence is waiting for the official notice from the American party concerning the time of the next consultations in the format of videoconference.

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic continued airstrikes against ISIS infrastructures

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/2015-10-11_syria_footage2-550.jpg

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic continued airstrikes against ‎ISIS infrastructures.

Su-30 fighters provide permanent coverage of the Russian strike groups.

Su-34, Su-24M and Su-25SM performed 64 combat sorties from the Hmeymim airbase engaging 63 ISIS objects located in Hamah, Latakia, Idlib and Raqqah provinces.

All the aircraft of the Russian air group successfully came back to the Hmeymim airbase after performing combat tasks in the Syrian Arab Republic.

Means of air reconnaissance registered the ISIS artillery battery located near Saraqib, Idlib province. The unit conducted repeated strikes against the nearest inhabited areas.

The Russian bombers destroyed this target.

Su-24M eliminated ISIS coordinating center located in Salma area. The HQ coordinated terrorists in Latakia province.

The direct hit of a KAB-500 air bomb caused complete destruction of the building sheltering leaders of the militants. Five off-road vehicles equipped with ZU-23 AA systems were destroyed as well.

Su-24M stroke a well-camouflaged position of off-road vehicles equipped with mortars located in the area of Kafr Delba (Latakia province). As a result of the strike, the mobile mortar battery, including 6 vehicles, was eliminated.

Su-25SM attackers hit the strong point of the ISIS terrorists, which was detected by means of air reconnaissance in vicinity of Achan (Hamah province). Fortifications, ammunition and materiel storages of the terrorists were liquidated by the direct hit.

Training camp of the ISIS unit was registered by means of reconnaissance in mountain-woody area of Khirbat al-Arus (Idlib province).

Su-25SM attackers hit the target with high-explosive bombs. The terrorists base was destroyed.

The attacks of the Russian air group carried out within the last 24 hours resulted in complete destruction of the following objects:
53 fortified areas and strong points with armament and military hardware;
1 command center;
4 field camps of terrorists;

Russian aviation group in the Syrian Arab Republic continues strikes against ISIS infrastructures

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/udar1-11.10-550.jpg

Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic continues strikes against ISIS infrastructures.

In the course of the last 24 hours, Russian military aircraft Su-34, Su-24M and Su-25SM have performed 55 combat sorties engaging 53 ISIS objects in the Homs, Hamah, Lattakia and Idlib provinces.

The means of space and air reconnaissance continue detection of new ISIS objects on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic 24 hours a day for their further engagement by the Russian air group.

During all sorties, the Russian strike aviation is covered by Su-30 fighters.

As a result of a pinpoint strike of Su-24M bombers near Salma settlement (Lattakia province), fragmentation air bombs destroyed a large ISIS transfer point with underground facilities and ammunition depots detected by means of space reconnaissance.

Detonation of munitions caused large fire. The object was completely destroyed.

Su-34 bombers engaged a militants camp located near Al-Mastumah (Idlib province).

According to the reconnaissance data, the camp was used as a concentration point, where militants from different countries were trained. At the same camp, terrorists were taught special tactics and sapper skills under the leadership of experienced instructors.

Near Tal Sukeyk (to the north of Hamah), a Su-25 attack aircraft eliminated a column of automobile vehicles, which transported munitions and fuel to the ISIS terrorist positions in that area.

Three petrol tank vehicles escorted by two off-road vehicles with large caliber machine guns were destroyed.

In the recent days, terrorists are undertaking desperate attempts to ferry munitions, armament, fuel and equipment from the Raqqah province to the contact line with the Syrian Armed Forces.

Significant part of their armament, ammunitions, fuel for military vehicles is already eliminated by pinpoint strikes of the Russian aircraft.

In this area of the Hamah province, a Su-24M bomber destroyed an ISIS underground command centre with a KAB-500 guided air bomb. The precision strike eliminated all the engineer facilities of terrorists.

Near Tal Sukeyk (Hamah province), a Su-25 attack aircraft engaged a militants mobile mortar position detected by UAVs.

The pinpoint strike resulted in destruction of three off-road vehicles equipped with mortars and one lorry with munitions.

The attacks of the Russian air group carried out within the last 24 hours resulted in destruction of the following objects:
25 fortified areas and defensive positions with armament and military equipment;
terrorist strong point near Salma settlement (Lattakia province);
7 command centres of militants;
6 terrorist field training camps;
6 ammunition depots;
a column of automobile vehicles;
3 underground shelters in the Lattakia province;
1 mobile mortar group.

After the successful task performance, all the Russian aircraft have returned to the Hmeymim airbase.

According to the Treaty on Open Skies, the Russian specialists were to have carried out a scheduled observation flight on an An-30B aircraft over the territories of the Turkish Republic on October 12, using Eskisehir and Diyarbak?r airfields.

The Turkish colleagues have addressed with a request to the Russian Ministry of Defence to defer the flight to a later date in connection with the security operation.

Taking into account the current situation in the Turkish Republic and the official appeal of the Turkish colleagues, the Russian Ministry of Defence has decided to defer the flight within the Treaty on Open Skies to a later date.

During 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian aviation group in the Syrian Arab Republic have increased the intensiveness of engagement of command centres, materiel concentration and storage areas of the ISIS terrorists

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/udar5-550.jpg

In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian aviation group in the Syrian Arab Republic have increased the intensiveness of engagement of command centres, materiel concentration and storage areas of the ISIS terrorist organization.

As a result of the strikes, the ISIS units have lost most of their ammunition, heavy military hardware and materials.

Now the terrorists have activated all the logistics net in order to transport ammunition and fuel from the Raqqah province.

Now these are not caravans but maneuvering groups consisting of off-road vehicles, which transport cargoes for terrorists mainly at night.

The received data confirms that such mobile groups are moving to the east and north-east after leaving the front line.

UAVs are registering routes of the terrorists and detecting transfer and strong points located in plain and mountainous areas. The aviation is delivering strikes against such targets.

In the course of the last 24 hours, Su-34, Su-24M and Su-25SM aircraft performed 88 combat sorties engaging 86 ISIS facilities located in the Raqqah, Hama, Idlib, Latakia and Aleppo provinces.

Command centres, field HQs, ammunition and armament storages, military hardware concentration areas, plants manufacturing explosives, field camps and terrorist bases were engaged.

Su-24M bombers carried out a pinpoint strike against an ISIS field HQ near Anadan (Aleppo province). The HQ coordinated actions of terrorist groups in the province. There was an ammunition storage either.

The high-accuracy strike with KAB-500 guided air bomb eliminated the militants field HQ. Detonation of munitions caused destruction of four automobile vehicles of the terrorists.

An ammunition storage located in a bunker was eliminated near al-Latamna, Hama province. The pinpoint strike of a Su-34 bomber resulted in total destruction of this underground facility.

A field HQ and an ammunition depot were destroyed in the Al-Bab suburbs, Aleppo province. The objective monitoring data registered detonation of artillery munitions, which had been kept in the depot.

A Su-25 attack aircraft carried out a strike against a column with fuel and ammunition in Aleppo province. A petrol tank vehicle, as well as three lorries with munitions escorted by two vehicles equipped with large-caliber machine guns were destroyed.   

According to the interception of radio talks of field commanders in the Hama and Homs provinces, militants are suffering a severe lack of ammunition for small arms and grenade launchers. In certain field talks there are requests to the leadership, which say that if the supplies are not replenished, they will withdraw their gangs from the combat zone.

After task performance, all the Russian military aircraft returned to the Hmeymim airbase.

Russian aircraft performed 41 combat sorties engaging 40 facilities of the ISIS infrastructure in Syria

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/2015-10-14_udar2-2-550_.jpg

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian aviation group in Syria have continued conducting pinpoint airstrikes against ISIS facilities, including command centres, materiel depots and plants manufacturing weapons for suicide bombers.

Su-34, Su-24M and Su-25SM aircraft performed 41 combat sorties engaging 40 facilities of the ISIS infrastructure in the Aleppo, Idlib, Lattakia, Hama and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

Successful airstrikes resulted in shutting-off another source of ammunition supplies of the terrorists operating in the Aleppo province.

Su-24 bombers performed strikes against facilities near Aleppo, where terrorists manufactured explosives and installed them in vehicles of suicide bombers. These vehicles were planned to be used in the course of terrorist attacks in the cities and towns of Syria, and against positions of the governmental forces.

Near Hraytan, a Su-25SM made a strike against an ISIS ammunition and fuel depot. Direct hits of fragmentation air bombs completely destroyed the facilities.

In the Idlib province, Su-25SM attack aircraft made a strike on a terrorist training centre in the mountain area. The objective monitoring data confirmed detonation of munitions stored at the object. The facility was eliminated.


13 kilometers far from Aleppo, the aviation hit repair and maintenance stations, where the militants restored armored combat vehicles and installed mortars, large-caliber machine guns and ZU-23 AA systems on off-road vehicles. An ISIS base, used by terrorists for sapper training, was also destroyed in this area by a pinpoint strike of a Su-34 bomber.

In Hama and Lattakia provinces, Su-24M bombers destroyed terrorist ammunition depots.

Near Deir ez-Zor, Su-24M bombers eliminated a command centre of one of the large ISIS groups by an airstrike.

After the task performance, all the Russian aircraft successfully returned to the Hmeymim airbase.

========================================================

Russian Defence Ministry comments on the messages, which had appeared in a number of foreign mass media, concerning the anxiety of the American colleagues about the approach of a Russian and American aircraft up to the visual contact in the sky over Syria, which took place last Saturday.

The reasons of such surprise of the US Air Force representatives remain unclear.

First, the presence of the Russian combat aircraft in the Syrian air space is absolutely legal upon the request of the official authorities of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Moreover, the flights are agreed upon with the responsible bodies of this state.

Secondly, the visual contact between the Russian and the American aircraft is to be commented on.

Indeed, on October 10, a group of Russian aircraft escorted by a Su-30SM fighter performed a combat mission aimed at elimination of an ISIS facility in the Aleppo province.

While reaching the assigned area, the radar warning receiver system of the Russian jets detected radio impulses of an unidentified aircraft.

The Russian aircraft reached the distance of about two-three kilometres. There was no intention to scare anybody. The Russian pilot did that just in order to identify the aircraft.

After that the Russian fighter came back to its combat group to continue task performance.

It is worth mentioning that that case is not the first one. Russian pilots often have a visual contact of flights not only of the US jets but also of UAVs, including strike ones in the sky over Syria.

The Russian Defence Ministry sent to the Pentagon another series of suggestions concerning avoidance of accidents in the Syrian air space.

Discussion of these suggestions with the American party is taking place today during the videoconference.

During the last 24 hours, the Russian aviation group in Syria has continued conducting pinpoint airstrikes against ISIS facilities at the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/2015-10-15_udar2-550.jpg

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian aviation group in Syria has continued conducting pinpoint airstrikes against ISIS facilities at the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.   

The Russian aircraft performed 33 combat sorties from Hmeymim airbase engaging 32 facilities of the ISIS infrastructure in the Idlib, Hama, Damascus, Aleppo and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

The flight intensity of the Russian Aerospace Forces have decreased.

This is caused by transformation of contact line as a result of offensive operations carried out by the Syrian Armed Forces.

The militants are retreating and trying to equip new positioning areas and change the logistics system of ammunition, armament and materiel supply.

The Russian reconnaissance means are registering these changings. The processing and analyzing of data received by both Russian reconnaissance means and Informational Centre in Baghdad is also carried out.   

The intensity of reconnaissance flights of aviation and UAVs is certainly increased in order to check and confirm the received data.

In the Eastern Guta region, Damascus province, a hardened fire position of Osa AA missile system, which had been captured by the militants, was destroyed by a Su-34 bomber. Strike with KAB-500 guided bomb caused elimination of concrete fortifications, which used to shelter the AA system. The air defence missile system was eliminated.

Su-24M bombers hit a two-storey building, which the ISIS militants had equipped a command centre in, located in Aleppo province. As a result, the target was destroyed by a direct air bomb strike.

Near Al-Atarib, Idlib province, Su-25 attack aircraft carried out strike against underground manufacturing of high-explosive mines. The militants produced the mines in order to plant them at the highways located in the region. The detonation of the explosives caused destruction of the target.

During reconnaissance operation near Khan Shaykhun (Hama province), the aviation detected three fortified area with artillery battery of the terrorists.

It is worth mentioning that the artillery positions equipped by strict following engineering rules is the evidence of presence professionals among the ISIS terrorists, who are well-trained.

After reconnaissance check, Su-34 and Su-25 aircraft carried out sudden a group strike against the targets. Fortifications, six artillery guns and four off-road vehicles equipped with mortars were eliminated by the strike.

In mountainous area of Damascus province, air reconnaissance means detected a hidden base of the terrorists. There were three armored vehicles and eight off-road cars equipped with large-caliber machine guns and mortars.

Two Su-25 aircraft hit the base and eliminated military vehicles, ammunition and fuel depots.   

Yesterday, Russian and US military experts held a videoconference on flight safety of the Russian aviation and aircraft of the coalition led by the USA in Syria. The parties converged in key provisions of the document.

The discussions were held in a constructive and business atmosphere as well as the previous ones.

The same work is in process with the colleagues of the other countries.

Yesterday, the Russian Aerospace Forces and Air Force of Israel held the first stage of a joint cooperative training in order to avoid air incidents.

During the training, the sides informed each other concerning actions of their aircraft using a hot line between the Hmeymim airbase and command centre of the Israeli Air Force.

The second stage of the training is taking place today.

Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov stated about a large-scale retreatment of the ISIS militants in Syria

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_6332-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_6372-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_6388-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_6396-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_6313-1.jpg

In the course of the last week, the Russian aviation group has destroyed 46 command centres and 6 plants of the ISIS, stated Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov at the briefing for foreign military attaches and media.

He explained that in total the aircraft had performed 394 combat sorties and engaged 22 different POL and materiel depots, 272 concentration areas, fortification areas and training camp of the militants.

Last week situation in Syria changed significantly. First of all, this was caused by effectiveness of the Russian aviation strikes against the ISIS facilities, said Andrei Kartapolov.

According to him, the Russian Aerospace Forces have performed 699 combat sorties, including 115 ones at night, since September 30, the beginning of the operation in Syria.

Andrei Kartapolov reminded that Kalibr sea-based cruise missiles were used in order to hit the most important targets.

According to our data, in total, 456 objects have been destroyed. According to the estimation of the Russian General Staff, the air strikes caused in disrupted the infrastructure, supply and control systems of the militants, stressed Andrei Kartapolov.

According to the reconnaissance data, including radio talks interception, every night up to 100 armed extremists of Jabhat al-Nusra cross the border near Reyhanli, and the ISIS terrorists cross the border near   Jarabulus, stated Andrei Kartapolov.

He explained that there was verified data confirming that the militants were leaving the combat areas through passages for the refugees made at the Syrian-Turkish border.

According to Andrei Kartapolov, desertion of the ISIS militants in Syria is reaching mass levels, most of the armed groups are demoralized.

Discontent of the field commanders is increasing among the militants. There are facts confirming order disobediences, told Andrei Kartapolov.

According to the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, the militants have already started retreating under strikes of the Russian aviation. Theyve lost most of the weapons and hardware deployed at the contact line with the Syrian Armed forces. The Russian reconnaissance UAVs increased the flight intensity in order to control the situation.

The representative of the Russian General Staff directed attention of military attaches and journalists to the territories, which the Russian aviation was performing strikes at.

We are performing strikes only against facilities of the internationally recognized terrorist organizations. Our aircraft are not carrying out missions in South regions of Syria, where formations of the Syrian Free Army were located according to our data, noted Andrei Kartapolov.

Andrei Kartapolov also said that the defence departments of Russia and US were going to sign an agreement on flight safety over Syria in the nearest future.

At present, all the technical issues have been agreed. Russian and American attorneys are adjusting the agreement text. We estimate that the document would be signed as soon as possible, stated Andrei Kartapolov.

The representative of the Russian General Staff also stated that military departments of Russia and Turkey have conducted the direct communication in order to provide flight safety of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Moreover, there is a hot line between aviation coordination centre at the Hmeymim airbase and command centre of the Israeli Air Force. Moreover, on October 14-15, the sides held joint trainings on preventing air incidents.

The air strikes against ISIS terrorists will continue according to receiving of credible information concerning their objects. It is evident that the strikes have made an impressive effect, said Andrei Kartapolov.

During the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group continued airstrikes against ISIS infrastructures in Syria

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/udar1-17.10.2015-550.jpg

In the course of 24 hours, on October 16, aircraft of the Russian Air Force made airstrikes on command centres, workshops manufacturing munitions as well as firing artillery positions, depots with armament, ammunition and reserves of military equipment of the ISIS terrorist organization.

Russian aviation performed 36 combat sorties from the Hmeymim airbase engaging 49 ISIS facilities in the Hama, Idlib, Lattakia, Damascus and Aleppo provinces.

The strikes of the Russian aviation resulted in elimination of the following targets:

11 command and control centres of illegal armed groups;

a plant manufacturing improvised explosive devices;

3 firing artillery positions of militants;

9 depots with ammunition and armament;

2 bases of combat vehicles;

15 field camps and terrorist bases;

8 fortified areas and defensive positions.

Near Salma (Lattakia province), a Su-24M bomber engaged a single building with a training base of terrorists. According to the reconnaissance data, in the building, foreign instructors prepared ISIS militants for sabotage war against the districts liberated by the Syrian army, as well as suicide bombers. Along with engineer training, the terrorists were taught to legalize among the civilians and refugees. The building also contained a workshop for production of improvised explosive devices. The direct hit of an air bomb resulted in total destruction of the building.

Near Talbiseh (Homs province) a large terrorist ammunitions depot was eliminated. The hit was made at the moment when a new batch of mortar mines and munitions as well as small arms was being delivered to the object. After the strike, the detonation of ammunition started. According to objective monitoring data confirmed destruction of 3 heavy trucks at the object.

In the suburbs of Damascus, Su-24M aircraft destroyed two ammunition depots and a workshop manufacturing improvised explosive devices for the ISIS terrorists. Precision strikes completely destroyed the objects.

Near Khan Al-Asal (Aleppo province), Su-25 attack aircraft engaged militants base destroying terrorist shelters as well as concentration of tanks and armoured vehicles. According to the objective monitoring data, two tanks and five infantry fighting vehicles of the ISIS militants were destroyed.

The new tactics of the militants, which include dispersing of ammunition depots and command centres, remain unsuccessful. All the newly-made ISIS infrastructural facilities are being detected by the Russian means of reconnaissance are immediately destroyed. It is to be mentioned that significant assistance is rendered by the inhabitants of those areas, which are temporarily under militants control. They inform the Syrian intelligence about the terrorist activities.

After receiving such information, the Command of the Russian air group checks it and makes the decision concerning the engagement of the facilities.

Thus, near Marj al-Sultan, Su-24M bomber engaged a command centre of the Faylak Omar illegal armed group. According to the Syrian intelligence, the militants, who formed part of the group, were responsible for a number of terrorist attacks in the Homs and Damascus provinces.

The strike resulted in destruction of the building.

After the task performance, all the Russian aircraft returned to the Hmeymim airfield. It is to be emphasized that the Russian unmanned aerial vehicles continue situation monitoring in the sky over Syria.

In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian aviation group in Syria have continued performing strikes against infrastructure facilities of ISIS terrorist organization

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/2015-10-18_aviaudar1-1-550.jpg

In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian aviation group in Syria have continued performing strikes against infrastructure facilities of ISIS terrorist organization.

The Russian bombers carried out 39 combat sorties and performed 60 strikes on 51 objects in Hama, Latakia, Damascus and Aleppo provinces from the Hmeymim airbase.

The strikes of the Russian aviation resulted in elimination of the following targets:
4 command centres of illegal armed groups;
6 ammunition and armament depots;
a mortar battery;
2 underground bunkers;
32 field camps of terrorists;
6 strong points of militants.

Near Salma, Latakia province, Su-24M performed strike with concrete-piercing bombs against the ISIS ammunition storage hidden in mountainous area. The detonation caused complete destruction of the target.

At the suburbs of Talbiseh, Homs province, Su-34 bombers destroyed ISIS underground fortification installations.

This target used to have a connecting tunnel, which provided an opportunity to the militants for appearing in different regions of the city and for conducting a maneuvering defence against the Syrian Armed Forces.

There was a real armory full of ammunition and self-made explosives in one of the bunkers. The weapons were supposed to be used for terrorist attacks and sabotages.

Moreover, there used to be a mini workshop manufacturing self-made unguided rocket-propelled projectiles.

It is to be noted that such tunnel networks are in many regions of Syrian Arab Republic, which are still under terrorists control.

During the air reconnaissance near the Eastern Guta, Damascus province, the advanced supply point of the armed groups was detected. Terrorists used it for being supplied with ammunition, products and fuel.

After the reconnaissance check, Su-25 destroyed the target as well as four armored vehicles.

At the suburbs of northwestern Kafr Zita, Hama province, Su-24 bombers performed an airstrike against a command centre of one of the Jaysh Al-Fateh terrorist organization units.

The strike disrupted control of the Jaysh Al-Fateh units located in the region. The terrorists have left the combat area after the strike.   


According to the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, militants of the terrorist organizations continue retreating in mass level in the East and North-East of the Syrian Arab Republic.

In Idlib and Hama provinces, field commanders of Jabhah An-Nushrah carry out a forced mobilization threatening lives of the civilians families.

In Raqqah province ISIS terrorists are carrying out total mobilization of 14-year and older men.

The contradictions over money flows and under-control territories between different terrorist organizations are increasing. According to radio talks interception, last week, near Idlib, the ISIS performed three attacks using car bombs against field commanders of the Jabhah An-Nushrah terrorist organization.

The ISIS leaders ordered the field commanders to intensify usage of car bombs and other self-made explosives at the main highways and in inhabited areas against the attacking Syrian Armed Forces.

All the aircraft of the Russian aviation group in the Syrian Arab Republic have come back to the Hmeymim airbase after performing combat tasks.

In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have continued making pinpoint strikes against ISIS infrastructural facilities

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/2015-10-19_aviaudar1-550.jpg

In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have continued making pinpoint strikes against ISIS infrastructural facilities.

Russian aviation performed 33 combat sorties from the Hmeymim airbase engaging 49 ISIS facilities in the Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib, Lattakia and Hama provinces.

During the last 24 hours, the strikes of the Russian aviation resulted in elimination of the following targets:
2 command centres of illegal armed groups;
3 depots with ammunition and armament;
2 underground bunkers;
32 firing positions in mountain-woody areas;
9 fortified firing positions of illegal armed groups;
a workshop used for production of launching ramps and rocket projectiles.

During an air reconnaissance mission near Al-Ess (Idlib province), Russian UAVs uncovered a command centre of one of the Jabhat al-Nusra units.

After additional reconnaissance check through other channels, a Su-24 bomber made an airstrike against the object. The hit of an air bomb resulted in destruction of the command centre and 2 trucks equipped with AA artillery systems ZU-23 near it.

Near Jubb al-Zarus (Hama province), a Su-34 bomber made an airstrike with guided bombs on underground shelters with a branched network of exits in different parts of the inhabited area. The direct hits of air bombs destroyed the complex of underground terrorist facilities.

Near Djdayda settlement (Aleppo province), Su-25 attack aircraft eliminated a workshop used for production of self-made rockets. The equipped facility manufactured single-use launching ramps and rockets for distant fire at Syrian Armed Forces positions and inhabited areas. The direct hit of an air bomb resulted in detonation of explosives and destruction of the whole facility.

Near Duwayr al-Akrad (Lattakia province), a pair of Su-25 attack aircraft made two successive strikes with high-explosive bombs on a large ISIS training camp detected by means of Russian reconnaissance. The strikes caused complete destruction of the camp and all the training facilities.

Precision strikes of the Russian combat aviation in the Damascus province have crucially changed the operational situation in this region.

The ISIS militants suffering a severe lack of ammunition are leaving their positions in large numbers.

Last night, reconnaissance means registered retreating of several large detachments, about 100-man-strong each, in direction of Marj al-Sultan.

After combat task performance, all the Russian aircraft have returned to the Hmeymim airbase.

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian aviation group in the Syrian Arab Republic has continued performing strikes against facilities of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian aviation group in the Syrian Arab Republic has continued performing strikes against facilities of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra.

The Russian pilots carried out 55 combat sorties from the Hmeymim airbase engaging 60 targets in the Hama, Idlib, Lattakia, Damascus, Aleppo and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

Near Ziara (Idlib province), air reconnaissance means uncovered a terrorists hardware concentration area. After additional reconnaissance check conducted with the use of UAVs, the Command of the Russian aviation group made a decision to destroy the target.

Three infantry fighting vehicles and six SUVs equipped with large-caliber machine guns were eliminated by the strike.

Near Qastun (Idlib province), a large base of illegal armed groups with a command centre and a camouflaged ammunition depot was destroyed. The strike of a Su-24M with a high-explosive bomb caused detonation of munitions, which completely destroyed the object.

Near Hatla (Deir ez-Zor province), the Russian aviation destroyed a mini-plant manufacturing explosive devices and unguided rockets. A pinpoint strike of a Su-34 bomber eliminated the plant.

Also in Deir ez-Zor province, terrorists command and communication centres, which had been used to coordinate five armed groups in the region, were destroyed. The target was located in buildings of post office, which had been captured by the terrorists. The object was eliminated with a guided bomb dropped from a Su-34 bomber.

During the last 24 hours, the strikes of the Russian aviation resulted in elimination of the following targets:

19 command centres of illegal armed groups;
2 depots with ammunition;
a plant used for production of munitions and explosives;
30 firing positions and concentrations of military hardware;
9 underground fortified facilities in the Hama province.


After combat task performance, all the Russian aircraft have returned to the Hmeymim airbase.

In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 46 combat sorties engaging 83 terrorist groupings facilities

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/udar1-21-10-2015-550.jpg

In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 46 combat sorties engaging 83 terrorist facilities in the Hama, Idlib, Damascus, Aleppo and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

Near Aleppo, a facility of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist grouping with workshop for manufacturing of radio-controlled bombs as well as a depot with explosives were destroyed.

After a pinpoint strike with guided air bombs and further detonation of explosives, the facility and 2 trucks, which had delivered tens of tons of explosives, were destroyed.

Near Khan Shaykhun settlement located in the al-Ghab plain, a large field camp of the Jabhat al-Nusra grouping was detected by the air reconnaissance. An airstrike conducted by a Su-25 attack aircraft eliminated the terrorist object with all its facilities: accommodation and training areas of militants, as well as depots, automobile vehicles.

In the Idlib province, a command-surveillance centre of the ISIS militants located on the Seryatel mountain was uncovered by reconnaissance UAVs. It used to carry out the control over the illegal armed groups at the battlefield as well as fire adjustment for mortar crews of militants. A strike of a Su-24M bomber aircraft hit the target.

Near Jisr al-Shughur (Idlib province), a Su-24M bomber destroyed a hidden ammunition depot of one of the ISIS terrorist group in this region detected by air reconnaissance.

On October 19, the means of radio interception received information concerning the meeting of commanders of illegal armed groups operating near Sarmin (Idlib province).

After additional check of the information through other channels concerning the time and place of the meeting, there was made a decision to make a strike on the meeting place of the militants commanders.

The meeting place, which was the underground floor of an abandoned building, was put under surveillance of UAVs.

Last night, a concentration of 9 off-road vehicles equipped with large-caliber machine guns was detected in that area.

A Su-34 bomber made a precision strike with a smart bomb KAB-500 destroying the whole object with its contents.   

Means of radio reconnaissance intercepted information concerning the start of negotiations between the commanders of the ISIS and the Jabhat an-Nusra on making an alliance for containment of the Syrian governmental troops.

Particular attention should be paid to the information received through several channels concerning the tactics of militants retreating under the strikes of the Syrian governmental troops. Their actions are the evidence of their belonging to terrorist groupings. Before leaving the positions, they are laying minefields and planting remotely controlled mines in abandoned residential buildings and objects of social infrastructure.

The significant part of these mines are carefully hidden and equipped with countdown timers, which will detonate after a certain period of time that sometimes constitutes several weeks.

Such tactics will allow to make terrorist attacks in the areas liberated by the governmental troops after the return of the civil population and the start of reconstruction works.


After the combat task performance, all the Russian aircraft successfully returned to the Hmeymim airbase.

In the course of last week the Russian Aerospace Forces aviation has continued performing strikes against facilities of the ISIS and Jabhat an-Nusra terrorist organizations in the territory of the Syria

In the course of last week the Russian Aerospace Forces aviation has continued performing strikes against facilities of the ISIS and Jabhat an-Nusra terrorist organizations in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. Armed Forces of Syria continued their offensive operations and liberating towns and villages.

In total, the Russian aviation has carried out 934 combat sorties and destroyed 819 terrorists facilities.

Last week the aviation group destroyed 363 targets, including 71 command centres, 10 plants and workshops manufacturing explosives, 30 different POL, materiel and ammunition depots, 252 fortified areas, strong points and field camps of the terrorists.

As a result of the Russian aviation strikes, main terrorists forces equipped with best-trained militants lost thier fighting ability; control and supply systems were disrupted; terrorists suffer serious lack of ammunition, weapons and fuel.

So-called Sheikh Ahmad, leader of Al-Walid terrorist group, was badly wounded during combats against the Syrian Armed Forces in the southern suburbs of Aleppo. The illegal armed group has been completely liquidated.

The massive desertion of terrorists not only to rear regions but also beyond the Syrian borders, including the territory of Turkey and Jordan, is one of the main problems of terrorists.

Field commanders of the Jabhat an-Nusra terrorist organization taking urgent efforts to project additional forces to the front line as the ISIS formations are leaving their positions and retreating to the east.

ISIS leadership has to project new forces from Iraq to Syria because of big losses. Field commanders have to carry out total mobilization of 12-year and older men in under-control territories. However, these recruits are dropping weapons and leaving their positions because of being scared.

There is information saying that a number of militants leaders in Aleppo province are forming retreat-blocking detachments in order to stop desertion. Several field commanders started establishing communications with units of the Syrian Armed Forces with suggestions of truces and negotiations.

The Syrian Armed Forces, using strike results of the Russian aviation, concentrated their main efforts on offensive operations in the Aleppo, Lattakia, Idlib, Homs and Damascus provinces.

In common combat actions are held round the inhabited areas, where the Russian aviation does not carry out missions and the Syrian Forces use heavy artillery only against uncovered fire positions.

Thus, in the Aleppo province, assault units of the governmental forces drove out ISIS units andtook hold of Jdeideh on October 21. At the present time, the units are developing offensive in the direction of Kwaires airbase. The airbase is expected to be unblocked in a few days. The units are in 7-8 kilometres away from the defended airfield.

To the south-east of Aleppo, the Syrian Forces liberated Sabikia, Khan Tuman, Karasi, Khan al-Assal, Shughaydilah, and now reached Balas, where they are preparing for the assault operation.

Battles continue in the north-west of Aleppo where the governmental troops liberate one street by another in order to surround the militants in the centre of the city.

It is to be mentioned that the rate of offensive cannot be increased because the militants use civilians as a human shield like it was during the liberation of the Khan-Tuman settlement.

In the Lattakia province, assault units of governmental troops and militia conduct reconnaissance and search actions in order to detect weak points in the enemys defensive and to suppress its firing positions. Salma and Sirmania settlements are blocked and are about to be mopped up.

In the central part of Syria, the governmental forces captured and are holding the southern outskirts of Teyr Maala, blocked militants in Dar al Kabeer and continue detection and elimination of firing positions of the enemy.

Moreover, the units of the governmental troops have driven the militants out of a large railway junction Mahata, liberated Sneysel and achieved the suburbs of Semali.

Near Damascus, units of the Syrian army conduct operation on elimination of the enemy in the Jaubar and Eastern Ghouta Regions. Despite the tough resistance of the militants, the entrapment is being tightened, one district is liberated after another.

The most obvious result of this operation is that the artillery bombardment of the capital of Syria was stopped for the first time over a quite long period.

Russian unmanned aerial vehicles uncovered a new route of deliveries of armament, ammunition and equipment for the ISIS groupings from Iraq.

The key object of this logistic chain was the bridge over the Euphrates river near Deir ez-Zor. Today the Russian aircraft made a pinpoint strike on that bridge; it resulted in rendering the bridge improper for its further usage by terrorists for their purposes.

It is to be emphasized that the strike was made in the regions, which are, according to the American partners, under the full ISIS control. Moreover, the Syrian units, which had been surrounded for over a year in the area near Deir ez-Zor, used this opportunity and started offensive taking hold of one of militants strong point.

In conclusion, it is to be said that as in all wars, children suffer most of all. In the captured areas, the terrorists do not only demolish historical inheritance but also completely destroyed the state health care system.

Now the Syrian army liberates cities and settlements, in which for many months and even years medical assistance was rendered only to militants.

It is obvious that Syria cannot help all its people at once. To that end, Minister of Defence has made a decision on rendering qualified medical assistance to children who suffered from terrorists in the medical institutions of the Russian Ministry of Defence.

After fulfillment of all the formalities, the first batch of children from Syria will arrive for treatment in Russia.

As it has been promised, the comprehensive information concerning the activities of the Russia aviation in Syria is published daily and weekly for prevention of insinuations and baseless accusations of breaching of the international humanitarian law.

Journalists of foreign media received an opportunity to familiarize themselves with everyday work of the Russian air group in Syria

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=IV8M9NN4i5E

Today, journalists of foreign media have received an opportunity to familiarize themselves with everyday work of the Russian Aerospace Force aviation group at the Hmeymim airbase in Syria. For the first time they could see the living conditions of the Russian servicemen and feel the atmosphere of preparation for combat task performance of in the sky of Syria aimed at destruction of the ISIS infrastructure.

Preparation of the aircraft of the Russian air grouping in Syria for combat sorties

Everyday life of the Russian servicemen at the Hmeymim airbase in Syria

Work of journalists at the Hmeymim airbase in Syria
   
In the course of the last 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group have continued making pinpoint strikes against terrorist infrastructural facilities in the Syrian Arab Republic.

For the last 24 hours, the Russian Su-34, Su-24M, Su-25SM aircraft performed 53 combat sorties engaging 72 terrorist facilities in the Hama, Idlib, Lattakia, Damascus, Aleppo and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

The effectiveness of engagement of the terrorist infrastructures by the Russian aircraft has considerably increased. Earlier the Russian aircraft worked mainly in pairs, but now due to good knowledge of the combat area the aircraft eliminate two or more targets individually in the course of one sortie.

Commenting on the claims of the Pentagon representative Colonel Steven Warren concerning the assessment of the activities of the Russian aviation in the Syrian Arab Republic, it should be mentioned that the Russian unmanned aerial vehicles detect considerable increase in the number of targets of the ISIS terrorist grouping.

ISIS leaders are projecting manpower reinforcements to combat areas from Raqqah and Iraq territories. They are also taking efforts to direct maneuvering automobile caravans with weapons and ammunition to the contact line with the Syrian Armed Forces.   

Therefore, explanations of the Pentagon representatives concerning sharp flight decrease caused by no target detection in Syria are more than just strange.

Airy dreams of Colonel Steven Warren concerning using cluster munitions by the Russian aviation in inhabited areas of Syria are absurd.

It appears that the American colleagues have not established their aims in the announced war against the ISIS terrorist organization.

This may be why the terrorists feel comfortable a year after the start of the anti-ISIS coalitions operations.

In the course of the last three days, the aircraft of the Russian air group have performed 163 combat sorties engaging 285 terrorist objects

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/udar1-26-10-2015-550.jpg

Since the last briefing, the Russian air group in Syria continued strikes against objects of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groupings.

In the course of the last three days, the aircraft of the Russian air group have performed 164 combat sorties engaging 285 terrorist objects.

In the course of the last 24 hours, the Russian air group carried out 59 sorties engaging 94 terrorist objects in the Hama, Idlib, Lattakia, Damascus, Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor provinces.

Near Salma (Lattakia province), Su-25 attack aircraft eliminated 3 ISIS fortified points with bunkers, mortar emplacements and permanent fire positions. Objective monitoring data confirmed the destruction of the engineer facilities of the terrorists.

In the Eastern Ghuta district (Damascus province), a strike was made on a large ammunition depot of the Jabhat al-Nusra grouping, situated in two metal hangars. Direct hits and further detonation of munitions destroyed the both objects.

Near Khibrat al-Amia (Aleppo province), unmanned aerial vehicles uncovered a base of a large ISIS illegal armed group with many off-road vehicles equipped with large-caliber machine guns, AA artillery systems ZU-23 and mortars in a mountain-woody area. After additional data check through other channels, two Su-24M bombers made strikes eliminating the base and all the automobile vehicles of terrorists.

Near Zaytan (Aleppo province), a Su-34 bomber made a pinpoint strike on an uncovered by air reconnaissance command centre of the local ISIS group, which coordinated combat actions against the Syrian army near the Kwaires airfield. As a result of a direct hit, the facility was completely destroyed.

In the suburbs of Deir ez-Zor, a Su-24M bomber carried out a strike on an ISIS strong point, which was destroyed after the detonation of the munitions.

Near Kifr Sajna (Hama province), a plant, which equipped off-road vehicles with large-caliber machine guns, mortars and AA artillery systems ZU-23, was destroyed. The workshops used by militants for re-equipment of military hardware were completely destroyed. UAVs confirmed 7 terrorist off-road vehicles to be on fire.

Movement of mobile automobile caravans, which deliver armament and ammunition to the militants in the eastern and central provinces, are being detected, especially at night.

The Russian air group pays particular attention to disruption of the terrorist logistic routes. These actions are carried out first of all in the Raqqah and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

To that end, the main roads adjacent to the areas of active battles were put under surveillance. Thus, in the al-Ghab plain (Idlib province), movement of a militants automobile column was uncovered. Resulting from an airstrike made by Su-25 attack aircraft, 3 trucks, a petrol tank vehicle and 2 escorting vehicles were destroyed. Explosion character shows that the trucks were carrying artillery munitions.

Near Tadmur (Homs province), Su-25 attack aircraft made an airstrike on a militants column. Direct hits destroyed 3 SUVs with large-caliber machine guns and 2 trucks with munitions.

Russian Ministry of Defence comments on publications appeared in a number of anglophone media quoting some doctors of the Syrian American Medical Society concerning Syrian civilians who had been killed by air strikes of the Russian aircraft carried out against a hospital in Sarmin settlement on October 20.

Russian Ministry of Defence is carefully monitoring and analyzing such stovepiping.

First, it is necessary to tell about the Syrian American Medical Society.   This organization, which is registered in Illinois American state has as much do with both medicine and doctors as ISIS has to do with the International Scout Movement.

It is to be added that starting from its foundation in 2012, the organization was mainly used for publishing so-called evidence of using chemical weapons against the Syrian opposition. Therefore, the agency laid low after everybody learnt that all the evidence was a lie.

The real intended aim of such institutions is providing anonymous stovepiping for further coverage by the assigned media.

Pay attention to the fact that such agencies, which are famous for accusing the Russian aviation group of bombing of civilians just a week before the start of the operation in Syria, are working according to the same rules.

It is to be stressed that before eliminating terrorists objects, the information is being checked for more than one day and through several intelligence channels.

Only after having checked all the information and got a hundred percent certainty concerning the targets, the aviation performs a strike against the ISIS infrastructure using precision munitions.   

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Russian Defence Ministry receives many requests from the foreign media concerning the Russian air group in Syria.

The Defence Ministry constantly presents the materials and provides explanations to the colleagues concerning different issues of the activities of the Russian aviation in the region.

There is a number of applications with requests for visiting the Hmeymim airbase, where the Russian aviation group is deployed.

The Defence Ministry is to continue cooperating with the media colleagues and organizing media tours like the one happened last week.

However, there are some unique applications, for instance, the one from the chief of the Moscow bureau of one of famous western media agencies.

Quoted: The analysis of the informational messages of the Russian Ministry of Defence shows that nearly 80 per cent of objects engaged by the aviation are not under the ISIS control.

There are only two things to do: first, to grant a piece of advice concerning being tactful and correct in such matters.

Secondly, there is an opportunity to provide the Russian Ministry of Defence with precise coordinates of the ISIS objects.

Especially as it turns out that the data is kept not somewhere in the Pentagon, but here in Moscow, in the bureau of one of western media agencies.

Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov invited foreign military attaches for holding a meeting and made several official statements

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/GRIX2442-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/GRI_2762-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/GRI_2765-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/GRI_2750-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/GRI_2798-550.jpg

Informational attacks of a number of foreign media agencies against actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria have been escalated recently. The Russian Defence Ministry is accused of performing strikes not only against moderate opposition but also civil facilities such as hospitals, mosques and schools. According to the Western media, the strikes resulted in killing civilians.

Unfortunately, a number of officials and politicians of several foreign countries are making the similar statements. It is sufficient to remember statements of the United States Secretary of State John Kerry, United States Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary of State for Defence Michael Fallon, Minister of Defence of France Jean-Yves Le Drian and other officials. The Russian Defence Ministry is carefully monitoring and analyzing such announcements.

In this regard the Defence Ministry invited military attaches of the United States of America, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and NATO and requested for official justification of the statements or refuting them. It was particularly in regard to flagrant accusations of hitting hospitals published by several English-speaking media agencies.

Almost every day the Russian Defence Ministry presents extensive information concerning operations held by the Russian aviation group in Syria to the Russian and international public.

The granted information contains explanations of where, how, when and who the strikes were carried out against.

The Russian defence department has been requesting the international partners for some additional information.

Thorough investigation of destructed hospitals, mosques, schools and killing civilians by the Russian aviation group in Syria will take place in every case of confirming the information. Western media and the military diplomatic corps will be informed about it. Otherwise, if there is no evidence or official information refuting, the Russian Ministry of Defence would estimate such stovepiping as a part of information warfare against Russia.

The defence department of Russia is looking forward to receive the necessary explanations in a few days.

Current situation in Syria confirms the actuality and timeliness of suggestions made by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin concerning forming of a broad international anti-ISIS coalition.

The Russian Ministry of Defence is still waiting for, as Vladimir Putin repeatedly spoke, interaction in detecting certain targets, which are to be hit in order to eliminate ISIS bases, or, otherwise, locations of objects, which are not to be influenced by the Russian aviation.

For 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syria have performed 71 combat sorties engaging 118 terrorist objects

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/2015-10-28_udar4-gp-550.jpg

For 24 hours, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 71 combat sorties engaging 118 terrorist objects in the Idlib, Homs, Hama, Aleppo, Damascus and Lattakia provinces.

The Russian aviation continued detection and elimination of caravans with armament and ammunition.

The strikes were also carried out against uncovered infrastructure of militants, which had been preserved and carefully camouflaged earlier. These are bases, transfer points, strong points of terrorists as well as command centres.

The number of sorties has increased. That is connected with the augmented number of reconnaissance data and targets of terrorist infrastructure confirmed through different channels.

This fact is the convincing answer for different anonymous sources in the foreign media, which can afford to make statements concerning insufficient technical serviceability of the Russian aircraft.

It is to be emphasized once again that the Russian aircraft at the Hmeymim airbase are all-weather planes and all the services of the Russian air group work coherently, reliably and efficiently.

Analyzing the methods of work of foreign colleagues on this topic and pre-empting another stovepiping it is to be mentioned that there is enough equipment, POL materials, ammunition and anything necessary for further effective combat task performance.

Passing to the actions of the Russian aviation against the terrorist infrastructures in Syria.

Near Salma (Lattakia province), unmanned aviation uncovered a militants command and communication centre with a large ammunition depot outside it. After additional reconnaissance of the target, Su-24M bombers made a strike resulting in complete destruction of the object.

Near Tel-Mregan (Aleppo province), a Su-24M bomber made a strike against a terrorist strong point.

The object was used by terrorists for carrying out control over the highway, by which ammunition and armament were delivered to militants.

As a result of a direct hit of an air bomb, the strong point and the covering automobile vehicles equipped with AA artillery systems ZU-23 were destroyed.

In the suburbs of the Misraba (Damascus province), the Russian aviation engaged a command centre of one of units of the Jaysh al-Islam terrorist grouping.

The pinpoint air strike destroyed the command and communication centre and disrupted the control over the militants illegal armed groups in that area.

In the Al-Ghab plain (Idlib province), a Su-25 attack aircraft eliminated a hidden logistic centre of terrorists, which stored munitions, armament and materiel.

Direct hit of an air bomb at a heavy truck, which was being loaded with munitions, eliminated both truck and the whole depot.

Objective monitoring data confirmed the full destruction of the object as well as another three heavy trucks of terrorists well-hidden 500 metres away from the facility.

That shows the radius of dispersion of fragmentations resulting from the detonation of munitions.

Near Talbiseh (Homs province), a strike was made on a command centre of the Jabhat al-Nusra grouping.

Terrorists had equipped a control centre in a two-storey building, near which there were four off-road vehicles with large-caliber machine guns and a mortar.

After additional reconnaissance check by unmanned means, a pinpoint strike with a guided bomb dropped from a Su-34 bomber destroyed the facility and the automobile vehicles.

Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Andrei Kartapolov summed up the results of the actions of the Russian air group in Syria for the last month

A month has passed since the start of operation of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic.

The time has come to sum up certain results. In total, aircraft of the Russian air group have performed 1391 combat sorties engaging 1623 terrorist objects.

That includes:
249 different command and communication centres;
51 terrorist training camps;
35 plants and workshops equipping cars with explosives;
131 ammunition depots;
371 strong points and fortified positions;
786 field camps and different bases.

The intensiveness of combat actions of the Russian aviation in Syria remains at the high level.

The airstrikes of the Russian aircraft caused considerable changes in the situation in Syria. Terrorists suffered significant loses.

The logistic and control systems of illegal armed groups, which had been built for recent years, were disrupted.

Main command and communication centers were rendered inoperative. The largest bases supplying terrorists with armament fuel and ammunition were destroyed. Infrastructure used for terrorists training was eliminated.

The ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra lost the initiative and were forced to defensive tactics all over the frontline. Stability of control over illegal armed groups was disrupted. This was ensured by elimination of 28 odious terrorist leaders. Thus, in the course of the last two days, four such persons were eliminated in al-Ghab area (Idlib province).

Suffering great losses, terrorists are trying to reinforce their units with new militants.

Terrorists are taking efforts to project their reserves from Iraq and other neighbouring countries to the Aleppo province where the most massive reinforcement takes place. However, the level of training and morale of the reserve units is rather low. That is why the militants, who are surrounded or under fire of the Syrian Armed Forces in several districts, are trying to escape by declaring themselves to be members of so-called moderate opposition while their leaders stop paying them money because of their cowardice and reluctance to fight.

To obtain political and financial support from abroad, the leadership of several illegal groups forming part of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist grouping decided to reject their symbols and to join the Harakat Ahrar ash-Sham, which was considered to be a member of moderate opposition by the West.

Moreover, in the Hama province, field commanders of the Jabhat al-Nusra illegal armed groups decided to unite with the ISIS because of the offensive operation of the Syrian Army.

A number of well-trained terrorist groups became uncontrolled in most combat areas.

Heads of illegal armed groups resorted to unprecedented severe measures in order to stop desertion of militants.

Executions of prisoners and hostages by militants has become routine. The latest case the public execution of 17 Al-Ghurabaas militants, who tried to leave the combat zone for Jordan territories was held in Han Shih (suburbs of Damascus). Civilians were forced to watch the execution. All the action was filmed for further distribution among other groupings, which operated near Damascus and other regions.

The map shows regions, which had been under control of the Syrian Armed Forces before the strikes of the Russian Air Force against the ISIS illegal armed groups.

Air strikes of the Russian aviation gave the Syrian Army opportunity to carry out offensive operations in the Aleppo, Lattakia, Idlib, Homs, Damascus provinces and to make the terrorist leave vast territories.

In the course of the last three weeks of combat actions, the Syrian Army has liberated more than 50 large inhabited areas, about 350 square kilometers. The civilians started returning to their homes in several towns and villages.

Thus, near Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces liberated 19 settlements. The governmental forces repelled all the terrorists counterattacks and continued their offensive at Kwaires in order to unblock it completely.

In Lattakia province, militants were driven out of 9 settlements. Intense battle for Salmia town is taking place in the plain area.

In the central part of Syria, the governmental forces liberated 12 towns in the Hama province. The Armed Forces are pressing the attack in the northern direction.

In the Homs province, offensive operations of the governmental forces and militia units resulted in obtaining control over Sanasil town and full blockage of large illegal armed groups in several inhabited areas such as Al-Dar al-Kabirah, Deir-Semali, Teir Maalah. They are about to be eliminated.

Near Damascus, intense fighting is continued in the Eastern Guta district.

The Armed Forces reached significant success near Douma and Nulah.

In the Jobar direction, the governmental forces continue carrying out offensive operations in order to surround illegal armed grouping of the militants concentrated in the area.

Despite significant losses, the illegal armed groups continue holding positions, which had become strong areas with vast underground tunnel system and different fortifications within the last few years.

Taking into account the fact that the combat actions are being held around inhabited areas, the Syrian Armed Forces minimized the usage of aviation and artillery in order to save the infrastructure of the cities and prevent casualties among civilians.

However, it is early to talk about complete victory over terrorists in Syria. Despite significant desertion and losses, terrorists continue resisting the governmental forces. The Syrian Armed Forces curbed all their counterattacks inflicting heavy losses on illegal armed groups.

After a month has passed, it is still very difficult to get the essence of the ambitions and actions of the so-called Syrian moderate opposition.

Before the threat of occupation of the country by international terrorist forces, all the patriotic forces must unite and to act within the common front against the common enemy. But unfortunately, that has not happened yet.

The Russian Ministry of Defence has repeatedly said about the readiness to cooperate will all the Syrian units fighting against the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists. That relates to the Free Syrian Army.

We are ready for cooperation with the patriotic opposition in any format including one within the Joint information centre in Baghdad. The Russian Defence Ministry guarantees that all the obtained information received from the Free Syrian Army and other moderate formations concerning the objects of the ISIS and the Jabhat al-Nusra will be examined and the facilities will become primary targets for engagement by the Russian aviation.

In order to prevent possible incidents with aircraft of the coalition in the air space of Syria, the Russian Ministry of Defence has arranged cooperation with the American party in strict accordance with the signed memorandum. Twice a day, (in emergency situations more frequently) the direct contact for discussion of security problems is arranged according to the scheme prescribed in the document.

Returing once again to the so called indiscriminate strikes of the Russian aviation in Syria.

In spite of the fact that the General Staff fully and rapidly informs the public about the activities of the Russian aviation in the Syrian Arab Republic, western media publish on an almost daily basis new fabrications accusing the Russian party of indiscriminate strikes.

In spite of the fact that the General Staff fully and rapidly informs the public about the activities of the Russian aviation in the Syrian Arab Republic, western media publish on an almost daily basis new fabrications accusing the Russian party of indiscriminate strikes.

They have come to such thing that the number of Russian strikes, which supposedly destroyed hospitals, mosques, residential houses and historical monuments, overrides the total number of hit made by the Russian aviation against terrorists.

Verified evidence and facts confirming this stovepiping are traditionally abscent.

As evidence, they present another photo collage or video footage of some ruins without reference to the place and time of the certain event.

Thus, the western media published another hoax concerning the Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque supposedly demolished by the Russian strikes in Jisr al-Shughur (Idlib province).

Today the real picture is shown by the means of objective monitoring.

The photo, which was made yesterday on October 29, 2015, show this mosque.

http://eng.mil.ru/images/2015-10-29_mosque-EN.jpg

The photo show in detail that the mosque suffered no damage.

That is why all the so-called revelations published by a number of respected publications is nothing but just a simple fabrication, which has no real factual basis.

I address once again to the western partners, which are trying to accuse the Russian Defence Ministry of indiscriminate strikes.

We know that every single moment spacecraft and reconnaissance aircraft are surveying the actions of the Russian Air Force in Syria.

That is why if the military departments of the NATO countries and other states want to accuse the Russian party of something, they have the opportunity to present all the specific facts and documents as the Russian Ministry of Defence does.

In the course of the last two days, the aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syria have been making strikes against uncovered infrastructural facilities of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groupings

In the course of the last two days, the aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have been making strikes against uncovered infrastructural facilities of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groupings.

The aircraft performed 131 combat sorties from the Hmeymim airbase engaging 237 terrorist objects in the Hama, Lattakia, Homs, Damascus, Aleppo and Raqqah provinces.

In the Tadmor district (Homs province) a Su-25 attack aircraft made a strike on an ISIS fortified area. Direct hits resulted in destruction of fortifications, underground shelters as well as AA artillery positions of the terrorists with two ZSU-23 systems. Objective monitoring data confirms their complete elimination.

Near Harasta al-Katara (Damascus province), an ISIS ammunition depot was destroyed. A hit of a guided bomb on a bunker with artillery munitions completely destroyed the object with all its contents.

In the suburbs of Aleppo, a Su-34 bomber made a strike against a terrorist camp used for training of militants arrived from other countries. As a result of hits of air bombs, the ammunition depot as well as the training facilities were eliminated.

Near Salma (Lattakia province), a command and communication centre of a large Jabhat al-Nusra illegal armed group was destroyed at one of the tactically important high points. The centre had been used for coordination of militants groups. The ability of transmitters provided opportunity to suppress radio communications of the Syrian Armed Forces.

The command center, which was hidden in mountain-woody area, as well as all its contests were completely destroyed by a bomb strike.

Near Kafr Nabudah settlement (Hama province), a Su-25 attack aircraft performed a strike against militants fortified area with two armored vehicles and two off-road automobile vehicles equipped with ZU-23 AA systems.

Direct hit of an air bomb caused destruction of an ammunition depot. As a result of detonation, armored and off-road vehicles burnt down.

================+++++++++++++++++++=====================

It is to be reminded that a week ago the leading western media referring to the Syrian-American Medical Society, which is registered in the USA, accused the Russian Ministry of Defence of supposed bombing of hospitals by the Russian aircraft in the inhabited areas of Alays, al-Hader, Khan Tuman, Al Zerba, Sarmin, Latamna.

http://eng.mil.ru/files/morf/2015-11-02_sarmin2-ru1.JPG

This was done without any factual basis. As a pseudo-evidence, a video showing the demolition of a hospital in Sarmin settlement (Idlib province) was demonstrated.

Certain western media referring to anonymous sources claimed that in the course of the strikes of the Russian aircraft, 12 people were supposedly killed and about 30 were injured in that medical institution.

We have checked this information. It turns out that there is a hospital only in Sarmin. In Alays, Al-Hader, Khan Tuman, Al Zerba, and Latamna there are no hospitals and medical personnel.

These are photos of the hospital being constructed in Sarmin in 2014. Please, pay attention to the dome-shaped building in the upper left corner of the photo.

It is circled in red at the photo.

These are aerophotos of Sarmin town taken by the Russian aviation on October 31, 2015.

http://eng.mil.ru/files/2015-11-02_sarmin2-en4.JPG

They demonstrate the hospital, located near dome-construction. As you can see, the building, where the hospital is situated, is absolutely undamaged. Moreover, the street suffered no damage.
