The aircrafts of the NATO's countries can have losses as a result of use of a space and air weapon by forces allied with Syria. The NATO's aircraft have to stop flights over Syria for safety of pilots of military planes.

Russia to use Air Force in Syria at President Assad's request to destroy ISIS

Russia's Federation Council gave its consent to President Putin for the use of the Russian Armed Forces outside the territory of the Russian Federation - in Syria, chairwoman of the Upper House of the Russian Parliament, Valentina Matviyenko, told TASS, Pravda.Ru reports. Sergei Ivanov, the head of the presidential administration, said that the Federation Council has unanimously endorsed the President's appeal. "All social and financial issues related to the maintenance of Russia's Air Force servicemen, who will be involved in this operation, will be observed and all adequate decisions regarding the matter have been made," said Ivanov.According to the official, Russia will use only aviation in Syria. "As our President has already said, the use of the armed forces on the ground theater of operations is excluded. The military purpose of the operation is the aviation support of Syrian government forces in their counteraction to ISIS," Ivanov said.   

The operation of the Russian Air Force in Syria will have a specific time frame, the head of the Kremlin administration said. "This operation of the Russian Air Force, of course, can not last indefinitely and has a well-defined time frame. Yet, I can not announce either the dates or the amount of aircraft and the types of weapons that our Air Force will use in the operation," said Ivanov.According to Ivanov, it does not go about the question of reaching either foreign policy goals or satisfying ambitions. It goes about national interests of the Russian Federation, he said. Representatives of the Kremlin administration said that Russia was the only legitimate party in the special operation in Syria. "The use of the armed forces is possible either under the UN Security Council resolution or at the request from the legitimate leadership of the country. In this case, Russia will be the only country that will be conducting the operation on a legitimate basis - at the request from the legitimate president of Syria," Putin' official spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.   

Noteworthy, during the talks with his US counterpart Barack Obama at 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia did not have any plans to deploy ground troops in Syria.

Al-Moallem: We have full confidence in Russia and President Putin

New York, SANA – Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem asserted that Syria has full confidence in the position of Russia and in President Vladimir Putin when it comes to fighting terrorism.

Al-Moallem told RT TV channel on Wednesday that there is no doubt that Syria has full confidence in the Russian position and in President Vladimir Putin who made Russia’s position about counter-terrorism clear.

He said that Syria doesn’t trust the U.S. position at all, nor does it trust the alliance it called for, adding they carried out over 9,000 airstrikes in Iraq and Syria and we haven’t seen any results, so we support what President Putin does in this regard.

Earlier on Tuesday, al-Moallem told journalists in New York that Russian-Syrian-Iranian-Iraqi cooperation against ISIS will be very useful in putting an end to terrorism.

Russia warns of Western misinformation over Syria airstrike

http://217.218.67.233/photo/20150930/53279b45-65e3-466c-9636-f147841f518d.jpg

Moscow says journalists should gain information over its airstrikes on Syria from the Russian Defense Ministry and not from the Pentagon.   

"Do not listen to the Pentagon about Russian strikes, ask the Russian Defense Ministry," said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov before a meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry in New York on Wednesday.

Lavrov added that all information concerning Russia’s military operations in Syria had been made public at a UN Security Council ministerial meeting held earlier.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told journalist at the United Nations that reports issued by Western and Syrian opposition sources about the nature of the airstrikes were distorted.      

Also on Wednesday, Lavrov warned the Security Council that the Takfiri militants are in possession of weapons of mass destruction.

In vast areas of Syria and Iraq, Daesh has “created an extremist quasi-state, which commands an efficient repressive apparatus, stable sources of income, well-equipped army and elements of weapons of mass destruction,” he said.

Earlier in the day, the Russian Defense Ministry released video footage of the airstrikes that targeted Daesh Takfiri terrorist command centers.

"Today aircraft of Russia’s Aerospace Forces delivered pinpoint airstrikes on eight facilities of the ISIL terrorist group on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. Overall, some 20 sorties were made," said Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov.

He added that all the airstrikes were carried out following thorough reconnaissance and with close coordination with the Syrian army.

"As a result of airstrikes, ammunition and fuel depots, heavy military hardware, as well as command posts in the mountainous areas have been destroyed," he added.

Lavrov: Russian, US military maintain contact to avoid incidents in Syria

October 01, 3:27 updated at: October 01, 4:51 UTC+3   

The military coalitions of the United States and Russia involved in the air strikes are in contact to establish channels of communication to prevent possible incidents

UNITED NATIONS, October 1. /TASS/. The Russian and US military will be in contact on Syria to avoid incidents, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday following meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry.

"We are meeting for the third time, we discussed the agreements reached by our presidents," he said. "We have been instructed to make sure that the military coalitions of the United States and Russia involved in the air strikes are in contact to establish channels of communication to prevent possible incidents." "We agreed that the military would establish contact very soon," Lavrov added.

Russia, US agree on objectives of settlement in Syria

Accordimg to the diplomat, Russia and the United States agree on the objectives of the settlement in Syria, there are disagreements on the ways of achieving them.

"Our president said while addressing the UN General Assembly that we will actively contribute to launching the political process on the Syrian settlement to create the conditions for the Syrians to agree on how they should live in their country, on the way they want to see their country, to agree that the rights of all ethnic groups and religious denominations are guaranteed, to make them feel involved, to be represented in the government bodies at the central and local levels and thus to put an end to the fratricidal conflict," the minister said.

"We agree that it’s necessary to achieve these objectives. I am sure that the majority of the Syrians see the future of their country in a similar way, the same vision is enshrined in the Geneva Communique," he said. "However, we have certain disagreements regarding the ways of moving to that goal," Lavrov noted.

Target only the positions of the Islamic State group

The air strikes of the Russian Air Force in Syria are surgical and target only the positions of the Islamic State group, Moscow has no information on civilian casualties, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

"You have heard the speech of John Kerry and other colleagues today at the meeting of the UN Security Council, this stance boils down to the following: if Russia really helps to fight with Islamic State, this is hailed. Let’s agree on how to avoid unintentional incidents, since the coalition’s aviation is also working in the skies over Syria," Lavrov said.

"They began talking that civilians had suffered during the strikes. We have no information about this," the minister noted. "We are closely monitoring the situation to make sure that the strikes are surgical, that the targets are only the positions, facilities, equipment and armament of terrorist groups.".

The Syrians should decide the fate of President al-Assad

Russia insists that the fate of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should be determined by the Syrians themselves, Sergey Lavrov said.

"Our stance is clear - we seek no regime change. Nor do we discuss the fate of the legitimate president of a sovereign country," he said. "Citizens of the country in question should determine the fate of their president. We spoke about this today as well.".

Kerry did not attend the meeting of the foreign ministers of Russia and Syria


US Secretary of State John Kerry did not attend the meeting of the foreign ministers of Russia and Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday, commenting on media reports that said that the US top diplomat went to a reception area of the Russian delegation’s office during Lavrov’s talks with his Syrian counterpart. "He did not attend the meeting, he went to his room," the minister said.

The Russian foreign minister held a bilateral meeting with his Syrian counterpart on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, after which the latter told reporters that Moscow coordinated with Damascus all its actions on the operation in Syria.

Russian Aerospace Forces engaged four more ISIS facilities in Syria this night

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_h8YISqJRQ

Su-24M and Su-25 aircraft performed 8 sorties eliminating the staff of terrorist groupings and an ammunition depot near Idlib as well as a three-level HQ centre near Hamah.

As a result of pinpoint bomb attack, a plant aimed for preparation of cars for explosion located in the north of Homs is completely destroyed.

All the airstrikes of the Russian aviation are coordinated with the Command of the Syrian Army. An operational group of the Ministry of Defence of the Syrian Arab Republic is deployed at the Hmeymim airbase for these purposes.

To prevent engagement of civil population, the targets for the Russian aviation are assigned only outside inhabited areas and only on the basis of confirmed reconnaissance data received from multiple sources.

To provide necessary information concerning the positions of terrorists and the results of their engagement, means of space reconnaissance and unmanned aerial vehicles are used.

Over 50 aircraft, helicopters involved in Russian airstrikes against IS — defense ministry

October 01, 13:57 UTC+3

The air group of Russia’s Aerospace Forces' modernized Su-24M and Su-25 fighter jets was deployed at the Hmeimim airbase in the area of Latakia

More than 50 warplanes and helicopters are part of an air group of Russia’s Aerospace Forces conducting airstrikes on the positions of the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov has said.

"The air group was deployed in the shortest time. We managed to do that as the main materiel supplies and ammunition were in the material-technical facility in Tartus. We only had to relocate aviation and bring some equipment," Konashenkov said.

Russia’s Aerospace Forces launched the operation against the Islamic State gunmen in Syria on Wednesday.

Russia’s upper house unanimously gave the president approval to use the Russian Armed Forces abroad earlier that day. Kremlin chief of staff Sergey Ivanov noted "it was solely the operation of the Russian Air Force" against Islamic State terrorist group in Syria at the request of President Bashar Assad.

Russian forces destroy terrorist stronghold and ammunition plant in Syria

As Gen. Igor Konashenkov told the journalists, modernized Su-24M and Su-25 fighter jets are deployed in the aviation unit of Russia’s Aerospace Defense Forces formed in Syria.

"More than 20 sorties were made targeting eight facilities of ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant - former name of Islamic State terrorist organization] terrorist groups. Modernized Su-24M and Su-25 jets with modern aiming systems were among the aircraft that made sorties," Konashenkov said.

Last night, the Russian Aerospace Forces attacked four Islamic State facilities in Syria.

"Strikes were made during the night on 4 facilities of Islamic State. The Sukhoi Su-24M frontline bombers and Su-25 attack aircraft made eight sorties," he said.

"A stronghold of terrorist groups and ammunition depot near the city of Idlib were destroyed, as well as a three-level command post of militants near the settlement of Hama," Konashenkov said.

"An explosives and ammunition production plant was completely destroyed after being directly hit by a bomb to the north of the city of Homs," he noted adding that "precisely at this location, cars were stuffed with explosives and then used for terrorist attacks, including by suicide bombers."


Battalion task group of Marines guarding airbase in Syria where Russian aerospace forces are deployed

According to the spokesman, a Marines’ battalion task group with reinforcements is guarding the airbase in Syria where the group of the Russian Aerospace Forces is deployed.

"A battalion task group of the Marines with reinforcements is engaged in the airbase guarding and defense," Konashenkov said.

He said that the air group of Russia’s Aerospace Forces was deployed at the Hmeimim airbase in the area of Latakia.

Russia actively uses space reconnaissance, drones in Syria

The official also said the air group of Russia’s Aerospace Forces in Syria has been actively using reconnaissance satellites and drones in order to identify the locations of terrorist forces and receive feedback data showing whether the attacks were effective enough.

"To obtain authentic information about the locations of terrorists and the results of fire attacks satellite intelligence means and remote-controlled aircraft are being used," he said.

Putin: Claims Russian jets killed civilians in Syria emerged before airstrikes started

Published time: 1 Oct, 2015 12:17
Edited time: 1 Oct, 2015 12:56


Reports of alleged casualties among civilians caused by Russian airstrikes in Syria emerged even before Russian warplanes were launched for their first combat mission, President Vladimir Putin said, branding such reports 'information attacks.'

“Other nations have been bombing Syrian territory for over a year,” Putin told the Russian human rights council on Thursday, stressing that the US-led coalition invades the Syrian airspace with no UN mandate or invitation from Damascus.

“We have such an invitation and we intend to fight against terrorist organizations and them only,” Putin added.

The Russian leader also commented on the alleged civilian casualties caused by Russian warplanes in Syria.

“As for media reports claiming that the civilian population is suffering, we are prepared for such information attacks. The first reports about civilian casualties emerged even before our planes got in the air,” he said.

Dozens of videos allegedly showing the aftermath of Russian bombings of residential areas in Syria surfaced online on Wednesday, after Moscow announced a bombing campaign designed to help Syrian government forces fight the Islamic State terrorist group.

Russia believes them to be information warfare, and has called on the media and foreign officials to carefully verify information coming from Syria before judging it truthful.

Putin added that the US and Russia must establish a mechanism for sharing information about military action in Syria, which would allow the two nations to root out false reports.

“That’s why we are establishing contact between our special services and those of the US, between our military departments,” he said. “I hope it will result in the establishing of some permanent mechanism.”

On Thursday, the Russian Defense Ministry reported hitting 12 targets belonging to the IS terrorist group since starting military action in Syria. The effort is designed to provide air support to the Syria army, which is struggling to contain the spread of jihadist militants in the war-torn country.

Syrian military provides intelligence on prospective targets for Russian forces in Syria, which is double-checked before clearance is given to deliver a strike, the Russian Defense Ministry reported.

Sponsors of ISIS are concerned by the Russian military presence in Syria. Group of the countries who secretly support ISIS, imposes requirements to Russia about the termination of aviation raids on ISIS position. Turkey heads the list of the countries sponsors of ISIS. Turkey secretly trades with ISIS and is the main buyer of oil and grain. The Turkish Air Force supports attacks of ISIS to an arrangement of the Syrian Kurds.

The so-called coalition of the countries bombs ISIS within a year. But nobody can call these airstrikes effective. According to the secret plan of Washington, fighters of ISIS have to overthrow the lawful president of Syria Bashar al-Assad. The USA will agree with ISIS after capture of Damascus. Flows of the Syrian refugees in the EU is a consequence of double game of Washington in Syria and Iraq.

http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/komitet_libya/39060476/753574/753574_900.jpg
   
Moscow, SANA – The Russian Air Force carried out more air strikes on 12 ISIS positions in Homs, Hama and Idleb as part of the agreement between Syria and Russia to eliminate ISIS.

Russia Today website quoted Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Maj. Igor Konashenkov as saying in a statement that “a terrorist HQ and an ammunition depot were destroyed near Idleb, as were a fortified three-level command center near Hama.”   
   
“A direct bomb hit also completely destroyed a workshop north of Homs that produced explosives and ammunition,” he added, saying that at this workshop terrorists were stuffing vehicles with explosives, which were then used to carry out terrorist attacks.   
   
The Russian warplanes continued targeting ISIS infrastructure and carried out 8 more sorties on 5 ISIS positions, where a training camp and an ammunition depot were destroyed in Maaret al-Nouman city in Idleb.

The Russian Sputnik news agency also quoted Konashenkov as saying that more than 50 airplanes take part in the Russian military operation against ISIS terrorists in Syria, adding that a group of Russian marines are guarding the Hmaimim Airbase in Syria where the Russian Air Force is temporarily deployed.   
   
“A battalion tactical group of marines is involved in securing and defending the base,” Konashenkov explained.   
   
The Press Office of the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement that “Targets selected for airstrikes by Russian aviation are strictly outside populated areas, and are based on confirmed intelligence information.”   
   
In a relevant context, the Ministry announced that the Russian landing ships in the Mediterranean and Russia’s Black Sea Fleet forces will take part in the Russian air operation against terrorist organizations in Syria to protect the Russian military facilities in Tartous and Lattakia.

October 02, 12:04 UTC+3

Russia’s newest multi-role Sukhoi-34 jets have destroyed a command post of the Islamic State militants and launched an airstrike on the militant training camp

MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Aerospace Forces’ jets have conducted 18 sorties against 12 facilities of the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria over the past 24 hours, Russia’s Defense Ministry official spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Friday.

"This night, ten sorties were carried out. Pinpoint strikes were delivered on seven facilities of terrorists," Maj.Gen. Konashenkov said, reminding that the Russian air group in Syria includes Su-24M, Su-25 and Su-34.

Late on Thursday, the Defense Ministry said during the day Russia’s warplanes conducted eights sorties against five facilities of the Islamic State.

The airstrikes destroyed a command post and a communications point of the IS armed units near Dar Tazza, in the province of Aleppo, in Syria’s north-west.

Sukhoi Su-25 fighter jets bombed a field camp of the IS gunmen near Maarrat al-Nu'man, in the Idlib province, completely destroying the terrorists’ bunkers, ammunition depots and fuel and lubrication materials, Konashenkov said.

Russian attack aircraft destroy IS command post, base in Syria

The Sukhoi Su-24M planes of the Russian Aerospace Force air group in Syria have destroyed a fortified command post of the Islamic State militants in the Hama province, as well as a transhipment base and a large ammunition depot of the militants.

"In the province of Hama near the Kafer-Zaita locality the Su-24M aircraft have destroyed a command post of militants of the Islamic State organisation (banned in Russia), which was a well-fortified concrete facility in which the terrorists were equipping shelter. Based on analysis of the video control materials, several dozen units of hardware equipped with large-calibre small arms have also been destroyed," he said.

Russia's newest strike fighters destroy IS command post in Syria

Konashenkov said the Sukhoi Su-34 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces have destroyed a command post of the Islamic State militants and launched an airstrike on the militant training camp.

"On October 1, the Su-34 planes made airstrikes on an IS training camp near the Maadan-Jedid settlement and on a camouflaged command post near Kasert-Faraj, southwest of the city of Raqqa," he said.

According to the spokesman, Russia’s newest multi-role Sukhoi-34 jets are capable of attacking terrorist targets at any place in Syria.

"With this type of planes we can hitting IS targets at any place on the Syrian territory," Konashenkov said.

"I would like to point out that Russia’s Sukhoi-34 planes dealt pinpoint strikes against targets from an altitude of more than 5,000 meters. The onboard targeting and homing equipment enables the planes to hit ground targets with absolute accuracy," Konashenkov said.

He recalled that on Thursday there was a confirmation of this after an attack against Islamic State infrastructures in the area of Al-Raqqah.

Russian Defense Ministry to provide full information about air operation in Syria

The Russian Defence Ministry has been providing exhaustive and authentic information about the operations of its air force group in Syria twice a day and it is going to do so further on.

"Twice a day we provide exhaustive information to the Russian and world public about the operation of our air force group in Syria and complement it with specific maps and photographs and videos. We are determined to go ahead with this work further on."

Russia’s Aerospace Forces mounted the first pin-point strikes against terrorist facilities in Syria on Wednesday, September 30. Russia’s air group in Syria consists of over 50 planes and helicopters, the Defense Ministry said earlier.
