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

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_6956-550.jpg

Russian Air Force continue making strikes against objects of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

In total, starting from the beginning of the operation, the Russian aircraft carried out 1631 combat sorties engaging 2084 objects of terrorist military infrastructure. These strikes resulted in destruction of the following facilities:
•287 different command centres;
•52 terrorist training camps;
•40 plants and workshops producing bombs and rockets;
•155 different ammunition and fuel depots.

As a result of the activities of the Russian aviation, the control and logistic system, which had been built in the course of a considerable period of time, was disrupted, terrorists suffered significant losses, their morale was undermined and their sponsors were convinced of hopelessness of their further financing.

Within the interaction with the international counter-terrorist coalition and the states of the region aimed at prevention of air incidents and providing flight safety in the air space of Syria, the Russian Ministry of Defence is successfully developing cooperation with the American colleagues. As it has already been reported, the Russian Defence Ministry and the American Department of Defence signed the corresponding memorandum a week ago.

Today at 11:00 a.m. (MSK), joint training was held between the crews of the Russian and American Air Force on actions in case of dangerous proximity of aircraft.

In the course of the training, issues of warning, organization of interaction and information exchange between the staffs of the operational groups and control centres of the Russian Air Force at the Hmeymim airbase and the US Strategic Air Operations Center in Qatar as well as the mutual informing of dangerous military activities in the air space of Syria were practiced.

Crews of the aircraft of the Russian Air Force and the international coalition performed an approach at the minimum distance of 3 nautical miles, established a contact at the frequency defined beforehand and exchanged messages concerning the flight parameters of their aircraft in the English and Russian languages.

After the aircraft had returned to the bases, the control centres of the Russian Aerospace Forces at Hmeymim in Syria and the U.S. Air Force in Qatar held joint review through the established direct communication channel.

Joint work on providing flight safety is organized with Israel.

A 24-hour hotline is established between the control centre at the Hmeymim airbase and the command centre of the Israeli Air Force for exchange of information concerning the air situation over Syria.

The joint work in this field will be continued. That will create conditions for prevention of possible incidents in the air space of Syria in the course of actions of aviation of the Russia and other countries.

Russian Defence Ministry repeatedly claimed to be ready to cooperate with all the Syrian patriotic forces, which are fighting against the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists.

It is to be mentioned that within the wide international coalition on counter-terrorism in the Middle East, the Russian Ministry of Defence has established contacts with the leaders of the Syrian opposition and field commanders of a number of formations. These patriotic forces despite the four-year opposition to the governmental troops put the idea of keeping Syria as a single independent state, free of ISIS and other terrorists of all kinds, above their political ambitions.

The Russian Ministry of Defence expresses the hope that this step will give a new impulse to the resolution of the Syrian conflict.

An agreement was achieved between the Russian Ministry of Defence and the patriotic forces on joint actions against terrorists as well as channels were established for transmission of information.

Thus, today the Russian aviation has already performed 12 sorties engaging 24 terrorist objects using high-power munitions and precision air bombs KAB-500 near Tadmor, Deir ez-Zor, Itria to the east of Aleppo. The coordinates of all those facilities had been transferred by representatives of the opposition.

The strikes resulted in elimination of the following objects:
•a command centre of terrorists;
•ammunition depot;
•10 different fortifications;
•12 artillery and air defence positions of militants.

Elimination of the ISIS ammunition depot to the east of Aleppo is shown on the screen. Its coordinates were transmitted by representatives of the opposition.

The Russian Ministry of Defence created coordination working groups, the staff of which cannot be disclosed due to understandable reasons at the present time. Their joint activities have been organized to perform tasks on countering the ISIS.

Such close cooperation will allow to consolidate the efforts of all the governmental troops and other patriotic forces of the Syrian Arab Republic, which were in opposition, against the common enemy – the international terrorism.

Russia Delivers Missile Systems to Syria to Avert Stealing of Warplanes

Russia has delivered missile defense systems to Syria to prevent the possible steaing of Russian Aerospace Forces aircraft.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia has delivered missile defense systems to Syria in order to prevent the possibility of Russian Aerospace Forces aircraft from being stolen, as well as to return fire, Russian Aerospace Forces Commander Viktor Bondarev said Thursday.

“We have taken into account all possible threats. We have sent not only fighters, attack aircraft, bombers, and helicopters, but also missile defense systems because any sort of force majeure situation may occur. For example, the stealing of a warplane in a neighboring country with Syria or having to return fire. We need to be prepared for that,” Bondarev told Russia’s Komsomolskaya Pravda daily in an interview.

In the course of the last two days, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 81 combat sorties engaging 263 objects



In the course of the last two days, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 81 combat sorties engaging 263 objects located in the Aleppo, Damascus, Deir ez-Zor, Idlib, Lattakia, Raqqah, Hama and Homs provinces.   

Near Maarrat al-Nu'man (Idlib province), according to the data received from the joint information center in Baghdad, a batch of antitank missile systems were delivered to one of the ammunition depots several days ago. The antitank systems were delivered for Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists in order to destroy armored vehicles of the Syrian governmental forces. After the data had been checked through several channels, a pair of Su-25 attack aircraft performed a strike, which resulted in destruction of the depot with all its contents.

Near Al-Nayrab airfield (Aleppo province), a Su-24M bomber destroyed workshops, which repaired the ISIS armored vehicles, located in a number of buildings.

These workshops were used to repair combat vehicles and tanks as well as off-roaders and trucks equipped with heavy armament for further transportation to the contact line of militants and the Syrian Armed Forces. The air bombs dropped from the Su-24M hit the targets and destroyed the workshops with 7 pieces of terrorists’ hardware.

Near Raqqah, Su-34 bombers carried out strikes against two fortified strong points of militants located at the approaches to the city. Direct hits of air bombs destroyed fortified installations of terrorists as well as four automobile and armored vehicles.

In ravine of Jebel Mgar mountain near Damascus, a base of an ISIS illegal armed group was attacked. Militants arranged ammunition depots, a command centre and hardware shelters for military hardware in caverns on the mountain slope. A strike of the Russian aviation caused destruction of terrorists’ infrastructure, four off-road vehicles equipped with large-caliber machine guns and two trucks.

Near Al-Muhasan (Deir ez-Zor province), a Su-34 bomber performed strike against terrorist training camp of the Jabhat al-Nusra. Terrorist training infrastructure, installations and constructions used by terrorists for keeping explosive devices were completely destroyed by direct hits of guided air bombs.

Near Tadmor (Homs province), a Su-24M eliminated a large fortified area of ISIS militants as well as a tank, an AA system ZU-23 and a mortar battery on their combat positions.

Attention should be attached to the fact, that the Russian aviation makes strikes only on the terrorist infrastructural objects, which are located at a significant distance from historical monuments. Tadmor town is the most inhabited area in the district of the desert that is why it is mentioned for indication of the region, where the Russian aviation is used against terrorist objects. The destroyed ISIS fortified area is situated more than 30 km from the ancient Palmyra.

Airstrike against terrorist training camp in Aleppo province

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

The Russian Defence Ministry comments on the statement of the Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland during her speech at the Congress session, where she claimed that supposedly, a large part of the Russian strikes in the Syrian Arab Republic had been aimed not against terrorists, but literally “targeted in areas where the Assad regime has lost territory”.

It is to be emphasized that the Russian air group in Syria makes strikes not on regions, but on objects of terrorists’ infrastructure.

After analysis of such statements of different American officials, it seems that the locations of these objects, which are under the control of the terrorists, are the most guarded state secret information in the USA. Representatives from the Pentagon and the State department constantly speak about it, but no one of them gives specific information concerning their location.

At the same time, it should be reminded that the Russian Ministry of Defence transferred to the military attaches of the anti-ISIS coalition led by the USA the comprehensive information on high-detail maps concerning the objects and areas controlled by terrorists in Syria.

It should be noted that the information presented by the Ministry of Defence has not been refuted neither by the State Department nor by the Pentagon.

That speaks for itself.

In the course of the last three days, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 137 combat sorties engaging 448 terrorist objects

In the course of the last three days, aircraft of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 137 combat sorties engaging 448 terrorist objects in the Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib, Lattakia, Raqqah, Hama and Homs provinces.   
   
In the course of the recent days, the intensiveness of the combat sorties of the Russian air group in Syria remains below the usual level. However, the number of engaged targets per one sortie has increased.   
   
That is connected with the fact that a number of aircraft of the air group have been uncovering and conducting reconnaissance of terrorist objects upon the data received from representatives of the Syrian opposition, the Information centre in Baghdad and the Command of the Syrian governmental troops.   
   
It is to be reminded that the Russian warplanes carry out airstrikes only after the data on the engaged objects has been checked through several channels and they have been identified as belonging to the terrorist groupings.   
   
The Russian Ministry of Defence confirms significant changes in the tactics of the terrorists all over the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.   
   
Illegal armed groups are acting not as impudently as they did a month ago. Today terrorists are trying to conduct maneuverable defensive hiding from the strikes of the Syrian governmental troops and the Russian aviation.   
   
The routes of delivery of armament are constantly changing. The deliveries are carried out mainly at night with observation of all elements of camouflaging.   
   
Near Kafer Nbuda (Hama province), a strike was made against a workshop used for repairing of armoured vehicles of the Jabhat al-Nusra. The airstrike of a Su-24M bomber eliminated a hangar with 4 tanks and 1 infantry fighting vehicle.   
   
Near the Jebel Dau mountain (Lattakia province), the Russian aviation made a strike on a mortar position of the Jabhat al-Nusra militants. Direct hits destroyed 4 mortars and a field ammunition depot.   
   
Near Kweires al-Sharqi (Aleppo province), a field camp of the Jabhat al-Nusra illegal armed group was eliminated. Direct hits destroyed the infrastructure of the camp rendering out of operation four automobile vehicles equipped with large-caliber machine guns.   
   
In the suburbs of al-Zerba (Idlib province), a large command center of Jabhat al-Nusra illegal armed group was destroyed. The object had been arranged in the course of the last three weeks as well as well-camouflaged. The command center coordinated terrorists’ actions at the Idlib-Aleppo direction. After additional reconnaissance of the object by means of unmanned aerial vehicles, a Su-34 aircraft made a strike with a guided bomb KAB-500. As a result, the object was   destroyed with all its contents.   
   
In suburbs of Raqqah city, a Su-34 bomber destroyed two ISIS ammunition storages. Objective monitoring registered explosions at the objects, which caused their complete destruction.   
   
Near Mahin (Homs province), the aviation carried out a strike against a large-sized weapon and ammunition depot of the Jabhat al-Nusra grouping. Militants stored small arms, large-caliber machine guns, grenade launchers, and ammunition in two hangars. These weapons were reserved for militants arrived in Syria from abroad. It is to be mentioned that the information on this object was obtained from representatives of the Syrian opposition. Objective monitoring data confirmed complete destruction of the depots and their contents after the hit of the Russian aviation.   
   
Near Jebel-Mgar mountain (Damascus province), an ammunition depot with improvised unguided rockets of the ISIS illegal armed group was destroyed. This object regularly provided militants with ammunition used for constant bombardment of residential areas of Damascus.

For the last two days aircraft of the Russian air group in Syria performed 85 combat sorties engaging 277 terrorist objects

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX7482-1-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX7748-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX7602-1-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX7330-1-550.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX7324-1-550.jpg

In the course of the last two days aircraft of the Russian air group in Syria have performed 85 combat sorties engaging 277 terrorist objects in the Aleppo, Damascus, Lattakia, Hama, Homs and Idlib provinces.

As a result of actions of the Russian aviation, the Syrian governmental troops unblocked the Kwaires airfield in the Aleppo province.

The airfield had been surrounded by the ISIS illegal armed groups for over two years.

The data with coordinates of firing positions and strong points of terrorists who had surrounded the airfield have been received from representatives of the Syrian opposition and confirmed by the Information centre in Baghdad.

In the Syrian province Aleppo, local inhabitants actively support the Syrian governmental troops.

Thus, Near Tel Mamo, a severe battle took place between the local inhabitants and the militants of the Ahrar ash-Sham grouping. Terrorists suffered significant losses.

In the course of the last several days, the Russian party has been conducting active additional reconnaissance and checks through several information channels concerning the targets provided by the Syrian opposition.

As a result of these activities, delivery of armament and ammunition for terrorists near Aleppo and Idlib cities was prevented.

That gave the opportunity to the governmental troops to defeat 7 terrorist units of total man strength of 900 people near Aziziyah, Kafer Haddad and Tel Mamo settlements. Having lost the fighting ability, the survived units left these combat areas.

45 km to the south of the Tadmor city (Homs province), a Su-24M bomber made a strike against an ISIS concentration of armoured vehicles uncovered by UAVs. The airstrike resulted in destruction of 3 tanks and 2 infantry fighting vehicles of terrorists.

In the suburbs of Mahin (Homs province), a Su-34 bomber destroyed a large underground ammunition depot of the Jabhat al-Nusra illegal armed group. The coordinates of that object were received from the Syrian opposition.

After the information had been checked, an aviation strike with BETAB-500 concrete-piercing bomb was made causing ammunition detonation and complete destruction of the target.   

The Russian aviation performed a strike against a concentration area of the ISIS vehicles and ammunition depot fitted with mines and artillery shells in Bir Qassab (Damascus province). The ammunition depot and four off-roaders of terrorists were eliminated.

Near Kafr Zita (Hama province), a direct hit with an air bomb dropped from a Su-24M bomber destroyed a mortar battery of the Jabhat al-Nusra illegal armed group.

Using the data obtained from the Syrian opposition, confirmed by the Command of the Syrian Armed Forces, the pinpoint strikes of the Russian aviation carried out in the course of two days ruined terrorists’ plans on attack at the Hama city. This information was confirmed by Russian UAVs.

Thus, in spite of offensive, terrorist units acting in the suburbs of Murek are trying to erect fortifications and arrange mine obstacles to stop the Syrian governmental troops.

In the course of last two days aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 107 combat sorties engaging 289 terrorist facilities

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX7602-1-550.jpg

In the course of last two days, November 11 and 12, the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the Syrian Arab Republic have performed 107 combat sorties engaging 289 terrorist facilities in Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, Homs, Daraa, and Deir-ez-Zor provinces.

Strikes of the Russian aviation caused destruction of 34 command and control centers of illegal armed groups, 16 POL and ammunition depots, 2 plants used for producing munitions and improvised explosives devices, 3 bases and terrorists’ training camps, 50 strong points with combat hardware and weapons, and 184 fortified areas and defensive positions.

Near Maarrat al-Nu'man (Idlib province), a Su-34 bomber destroyed a plant of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group. The object was used for producing rockets and improvised explosive devices, and fitting vehicles with EDs. The air strike resulted in complete destruction of both buildings, which the plant was deployed in.

In suburbs of Rasm al-Aboud (Aleppo province), through information provided by the civilians, the Russian UAVs registered a well-hidden concentration of the Jabhat al-Nusra’s armored vehicles.

Two tanks, three armored vehicles, and four automobiles equipped with large-caliber machine guns were eliminated by direct hits.

In suburbs of Jasim (Daraa province), the Russian Su-34 bomber destroyed an underground ammunition depot of the ISIS illegal armed groups. The direct hit by BETAB-500 air bomb caused detonation of explosives and complete destruction of the object.

Near Jebel-Mgar mountain (Damascus province), the ISIS illegal armed group ammunition depot was hit. During two days rockets were stealthily delivered to the object in small-sized batches. The rockets were supposed to be used for the renewal of bombardment against the Syrian capital. Pinpoint strike at the building with munitions caused complete destruction.

Near Taniyyat al-Rujma passage (Homs province), Su-24M carried out a strike against the ISIS strong point. The strike destroyed fortifications, three mortars and field ammunition depot of terrorists.

In suburbs and al-Latamna (Hama province), a large ammunition depot of Jabhat al-Nusra was eliminated. The Su-34 bomb strike destroyed two buildings with reactive and artillery projectiles, mortar shells and munitions.

In suburbs of Kdin (Latakia province), command and observation post of Jabhat al-Nusra was destroyed. Pinpoint strike resulted in complete destruction of terrorists’ building.

In the course of aerial reconnaissance operation held near Mayadin (Deir-ez-Zor province), a column of petrol trucks was registered heading on the Syrian-Iraqi border. According to the gained data, the trucks were transporting crude oil taken from the ISIS-controlled oil fields to refueling plants of terrorists located at the Iraq territory. On-duty Su-34 bomber hit the column of trucks. The objective monitoring data confirms elimination of the column.

The civilians are actively joining self-defence units in provinces of Latakia, Tartus, Homs, Hama, Idlib and Damascus. According to the Syrian General Staff, strength of the units exceeds 4,000 people.

After necessary training, the volunteers are involved in performing tasks concerning protecting inhabited areas from terrorists and guarding important facilities and transportation lanes. The assistance provided by civilians allows to release units of regular forces from the rear and to form necessary reserve forces in order to develop offensive against terrorists’ territories.

Units of militia in cooperation with Mukhabarat and governmental forces are actively taking part in fighting terrorists near Damascus and Aleppo as well as in northern Latakia province.

According to the data received from the Informational Center in Baghdad, field commanders of illegal armed groups in Latakia received an order on urgent evacuation of all material values and modern samples of armament deep into the uncontrolled territories of terrorists.

Long-range aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out strikes with air-based cruise missiles on the ISIS terrorist objects within the air operation   
   
http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/GRIX2880-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX9108-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/GRIX2877-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX9144-1.jpg http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX9157-1.jpg    
   
In accordance to the task assigned by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces concerning enhancing combat air operations in the Syrian Arab Republic, crews of Tu-160, Tu-95MS and Tu-22M3 long-range aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out strikes with air-based cruise missiles at the ISIS terrorist objects within the air operation.   
   
Today, from 5.00 through 5.30 a.m. (MSK), twelve Tu-22M3 long-range bombers carried out strikes at the ISIS terrorist facilities in Raqqah and Deir-ez-Zor provinces.   
   
From 9.00 through 9.40, Tu-160 and Tu-95MS launched 34 air-based cruise missiles on terrorist objects located in Aleppo and Idlib.   
   
All strikes are performed against the targets, which had been detected in advance.   
   
https://youtu.be/igzjX1IKULw   
   
In total, in the course of the first day of the air operation, 127 combat sorties aimed at 206 terrorist facilities have been planned. By now, the Russian aviation have performed 82 combat sorties and engaged 140 objects of illegal armed groups. The operation is being continued. Subsequent massive airstrikes will be carried out in accordance to the air operation plan.   
   
The number of combat sorties carried out by the Russian Aerospace Forces has been doubled. That allows performing crushing and pinpoint strikes against the ISIS militants all over the territory of Syria.   
   
Chief of the General of the Russian Armed Forces General of the Army Valery Gerasimov reported about operations held by the Russian aviation in detail.   
   
Missions carried out by the Russian aviation provided opportunity to the Syrian Armed Forces to take the all-front offensive in Aleppo, Latakia, Idlib, Homs and Damascus provinces, and to liberate vast territories from terrorists.   
   
In the northern Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces have liberated approximately 40 inhabited areas. Governmental forces unblocked the Kwaires airbase. At present, the forces continue extending safety zone around the airbase.   
   
Offensive operation at Idlib is being successfully developed; the Syrian Armed Forces are carrying out active offensive 20-30 kilometers far from the city.   
   
Terrorists have been eliminated in 12 inhabited areas in the coastal province of Latakia. Attack units of governmental forces and people’s militia are fiercely fighting for the control over the town of Salma. They have been successful in liberating a number of tactically important heights and inhabited areas on Kobani and Gmam line. Despite the persistent resistance of illegal armed groupings, Syrian units are continuing their offensive.   
   
As a result of the offensive by governmental forces and militia units the inhabited area of Hadat was taken from the terrorists.   
   
The Syrian offensive in the direction of Palmyra is continued. Since the beginning of the active phase of the offensive assault troops advanced by up to 4 kilometers into terrorist occupied territory, blocked terrorists in the inhabited area of Maksam and are currently fighting for the control over the commanding eminence near the entrance to the city.   
   
The liberation of terrorists’ areas of Jaubar and Eastern Guta is continued, with fierce city combat being conducted in the vicinity of DAMASCUS.   
   
For the first time in 4 years of war the Syrian Army has liberated 80 inhabited areas, assuming control over a territory of over 500 square kilometers.   
   
In order to carry out the orders to increase the number of airstrikes against the Islamic State and other extremist organizations the General Staff has devised an Air Operation Plan.   
   
Besides the increase in the number of combat aviation sorties from the Hmeymim airbase, the Plan includes sending 25 long-range aircraft, 8 SU-34 bombers and 4 SU-27SM fighters from Russia to conduct airstrikes in Syria.   
   
Space reconnaissance means of the Middle Eastern region are being reinforced to increase the efficiency of detecting enemy facilities and the accuracy of determining target coordinates.   
   
Ten spacecraft have been assigned to conduct imagery and radar reconnaissance, including civilian-purpose spacecraft.   
   
The orbits of a number of satellites have been corrected to allow them to monitor Syrian territory with required periodicity.   
   
A future reinforcement of the orbital group with operational reserve spacecraft is planned.   
   
Today as a result of the first massive airstrike 14 terrorist facilities of special importance were destroyed with 34 cruise missiles.   
   
Those were control centres of the illegal armed groupings, which coordinated Islamic State troops in Idlib and Aleppo provinces; large depots of ammunition and other supplies located in protected shelters in the North West of Syria; terrorist training camps, where reinforcements for terrorist units and suicide bombers were trained; three large factories manufacturing explosives, suicide vests and unguided rockets.   
   
The aviation group in Hmeymim has carried out 65 combat sorties today. As a result of the airstrikes 6 command centres, 8 ammunition depots, 12 training camps, 4 factories manufacturing rockets and mines, 6 fuel depots belonging to terrorist groups have been destroyed.   
   
SU-34 aircraft destroyed two columns of fuel bowsers and about 50 vehicles. As a result, taking into consideration previous airstrikes aimed at oil supply transports (410 fuellers in total) and several infrastructure elements, the illegal fuel export capabilities of the terrorists have been significantly cut.   
   
The control over the air operation is conducted from the National Centre on State Defence Control of the Russian Federation through Long Range Aviation and Syrian Aviation Group Command communication centres.   
   
The Russian Defence Ministry had informed the US Air Force Command and other coalition countries’ Commands about the airstrikes in advance.   
   
“The conduct of airstrikes on terrorist facilities is continued according to the approved plan. All the assigned missions will be carried out”, stated Chief of the Russian General Staff.   
   
“As a result of missile and bomb strikes, 7 concentrations of military hardware, 4 command centres, 5 large ammunition and armament depots, as well as 5 terrorist infrastructural facilities were destroyed,” reported in his turn Commander of the Long-range aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces Lieutenant General Anatoly Zhikharev.   
   
In the course of the airstrikes, Tu-22M3 bombers within one sortie, which lasted for 5 hours and 20 minutes, covered 4510 km, while strategic bombers Tu-160 and Tu-95MS were in the air for 8 h 20 min and 9 h 30 min correspondently. Their routes constituted 6566 kilometers each.   
   
“In the course of a day, the reinforced wing of Tu-22M3 long-range bombers have been carrying out 2 joint airstrikes on ISIS objects in the eastern part of Syria from Mozdok airfield. One of these strikes was carried out at night, the second is carried out at the moment,” explained Anatoly Zhikharev.   
   
“All types of airstrike complexes of the Long-range aviation are involved in the task performance. The crews of strategic bombers perform the assigned tasks on engagement of objects in full accordance with the plan of first massive airstrike,” stated Lieutenant General Anatoly Zhikharev.   
   
According to General Zhikharev, Tu-160’s and Tu-95MS’s have already landed at their airfields after the task performance. “They are undergoing preparations for future sorties; objective monitoring data is being analyzed,” he said.

Russian Air Force has significantly increased the intensity of strikes on the armed formations of international terrorist organizations on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_7042-1-550.jpg

In accordance with the task assigned by the President of the Russian Federation, the Russian Air Force has significantly increased the intensity of strikes on the armed formations of international terrorist organizations on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Yesterday, according to the plan of the air operation, the first massive air strike against 206 terrorist objects was made.

In total, in the course of the 24 hours, the Russian aviation has carried out 127 combat sorties, among them:
•by strategic missile-carrying aircraft Tu-160 and Tu-95MS – 5;
•by long-range bombers Tu-22M3 – 24;
•by attack aviation from Hmeymim airbase – 98.

34 air-based long-range cruise missiles were launched against 14 key terrorist facilities in the Idlib and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

The long-range bomber aviation hit 12 objects located in the Raqqah and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

Attack aviation located at the Hmeymim airfield performed tasks on engagement of command centre of militants, plants producing explosives, ammunition depots, terrorists’ training camps, strong points and fortified areas.

All the terrorists’ objects, which had been planned for engagement, were eliminated.

During the recent years, the ISIS and other extremist illegal armed groups have managed to establish favourable conditions for so-called “on-wheels oil pipe line”.

Hundreds of tanker vehicles deliver thousands of tons of oil to Iraq. This is one of the main income sources of terrorists.

It can be seen that hundreds of tanker vehicles are forming columns.

In the course of the first several days, the Russian aviation has eliminated approximately 500 fuel trucks. This significantly reduced terrorists’ illegal oil export capabilities and their income.

It is to be noted that there was made a decision, according to which the Russian warplanes started a “free hunt” against terrorists’ tanker vehicles transporting oil products in the areas controlled by the ISIS.

Moreover, Su-34 bombers started performing strikes on oil production objects.

All strikes of the Russian aviation are carried out against targets, which had been detected in advance.

In order to enhance the speed of terrorist facilities detection and the accuracy of definition of their coordinates all reconnaissance including the space one in the Middle Eastern Region has been intensified. It has allowed to detect new terrorist targets and destroy them in real time.

Today at 5 a.m. (Moscow time) the Russian Air Forces made a second massive airstrike against terrorist armed formations in Syria.

From 5:00 to 5:50 a squadron of Tu-22M3 long-range bombers made airstrikes against 6 ISIS facilities in the provinces of Raqqah and Deir-ez-Zor. They engaged depots with weapons and ammunition, mass concentrations of military hardware, training camps and workshops producing explosives.

From 9:00 to 9:10 Tu-160 strategic missile-carrying aircraft launched 12 air-based cruise missiles against ISIS   facilities in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.

The strikes resulted in destruction of the following objects:
•3 command centres;
•2 depots with armament and weapons;
•a militants’ field camp.

As a result of the airstrikes 3 command centres, 2 weapon and ammunition depots and a terrorist field camp have been destroyed. In the course of the day, the attack aviation located at the Hmeymim airbase has carried out 100 combat sorties engaging 190 terrorist facilities.

By 16:00, 59 combat sorties were carried out, 149 objects were destroyed. It should be noted that the Russian air group continues carrying out airstrikes.

Just a few minutes ago a squadron of Tu-22M3 long-range bombers has made the second massive airstrike against 6 militants’ facilities engaging a communications centre, ISIS ammunition depot, a small factory producing explosives and car bombs, as well as a terrorist training base.

The airstrikes are continued according to the approved plan.

In order to ensure the safety, representatives of the international coalition are notified about the time of the airstrikes and the routes of the aircraft in advance.

In accordance with the order of the President of the Russian Federation, the General Staff is elaborating suggestions on joint operations with the French Navy against terrorists. Joint combat operations will be organized when the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier arrives to the shores of Syria.

In conclusion, it should be said that the Russian Air Force continues making massive airstrikes against ISIS terrorists in accordance with the air operation plan.

Comprehensive information concerning the results of combat work will be reported.

Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces discussed with his French colleague coordination of actions in Syria

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX9704-550.jpg

Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces General of the Army Valery Gerasimov and the French Armed Forces Chief of Staff General of the Army Pierre de Villiers have discussed topical issues concerning implementation of orders of the Presidents of Russia and France on consolidation of efforts against international terrorist organizations.

During a phone conversation both sides exchanged their opinions on the current situation in Syria and discussed issues of cooperation of the Russian Navy formation and the French aircraft carrier group for fighting terrorist groupings in Syria.

At the beginning of the phone call Valery Gerasimov expressed his condolences to the French people for the deaths caused by the series of terrorist attacks that had taken place in Paris on November, 13. He said that Russia understood the sorrow of the French like no one else because the Russians also grieved over the victims of the air crash over the Sinai Peninsula.

General of the Army Valery Gerasimov emphasized that the terrorist attacks in Paris and the one on board of the Russian airliner were links of one chain, and that grief and anger had to help Russia and France to unite efforts in fighting international terrorism.

Chief of the Russian General Staff also informed his colleague about the progress of the Russian Aerospace Forces air operation in destroying terrorist infrastructural facilities in Syria.

The conversation lasted for about half an hour.

Chief of Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov summed up the results of the 2nd and 3rd massive airstrikes on ISIS objects in Syria

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/SAVX0649-1-550.jpg

https://youtu.be/zG41ptoaOIc

In accordance with the orders of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Russian Aerospace Forces continue conducting massive airstrikes on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Yesterday on November 18, in accordance with the Air operation plan, the second massive airstrike was made against 206 terrorist objects.

In the course of the last 24 hours, Russian aviation has carried out 126 combat sorties of Tu-160 and Tu-22M3 aircraft from the territory of the Russian Federation and of tactical aviation from the Hmeymim airbase.

Seven key terrorist objects have been destroyed by 16 air-based long-range cruise missiles in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.

Long-range bomber aviation destroyed 12 objects belonging to the ISIS illegal armed groups in the provinces of Raqqah and Deir ez-Zor.

Attack aviation from the Hmeymim airbase carried out 100 combat sorties, destroying 190 terrorist facilities, including:

58 command centres;

41 ammunition depots;

17 strong points and defensive positions;

74 militants’ concentration areas.

The objective monitoring data on the Russian airstrikes against terrorist strong points, positions and concentration areas can be seen on the screen.

As a result of massive airstrikes, terrorists have suffered significant manpower losses.

The available data shows that due to significant losses and inability to bury all killed members of illegal armed groups according to the religious rites of Islam, field commanders have decided to throw terrorists’ bodies into sewage pits.

In order to conceal the real numbers of losses, evacuation of dead and wounded terrorists is conducted at night. According to available data, a terrorist with the callsign “Abu Obeida” was tasked to discreetly deliver the corpses from the southern outskirts of Aleppo to the Khan al-Assal inhabited area.

Terrorists have acknowledged the deaths of field commanders Abu Nurlbagasi, Muhammad ibn Hayrat and Al-Okaba (who had been active near Aleppo), which resulted from the bomb and missile strikes of the Russian aviation.

Information has been obtained that on the night of November 18, terrorists of the Sham Taliban illegal armed group organized evacuation of the corpse of their commander “Ahmad Ziyya”, who had been killed in the vicinity of the Jubb al-Ahmar mountain. Other terrorist groups active in this area urgently requested reinforcements due to significant losses in manpower.

The leaders of the terrorists active in the Idlib province stated that militants had suffered great losses after the strike of a Russian cruise missile on the facility near the Juzef settlement.

On Novemebr 18, in Askhim settlement, “Abu Bakra” field commander was buried after he had been killed by missile and bomb attacks of the Russian aviation.

As a result of the losses, the control over the illegal armed groups, which conducted activities in the Homs province, was completely disrupted. The cases of refusal to perform assigned tasks were registered. Thus, militants of the field commander Abu Massab as-Suri from the Jabhat al-Nusra grouping did not fulfill the order on elimination of units of the Syrian Armed Forces near Deir Hanna inhabited area.

Field commander with a callsign “Abu Husan” broke the order of the leadership and refused to move with his group to the area of the Talbiseh settlement (Homs province).

The effectiveness of strikes performed by the Russian aviation is assessed on the basis of the objective monitoring data received from aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles. Engagement of the most important facilities is additionally checked against the results of space reconnaissance. The data on the losses in manpower among terrorists are received from the Syrian party.

Examples of such videos and photos are regularly shown to the public.

Today at 9 o’clock in the morning (MSK), the Russian Air Force made the third massive airstrike against illegal armed groups on the territory of Syria.

From 9:00 till 9:20, Tu-95MS strategic missile-carrying aircraft having arrived from the territory of the Russian Federation launched 12 air-based cruise missiles on the ISIS objects in the Aleppo and Idlib provinces. Among the targets there were: POL depots, a plant producing explosives, a command centre, and an HQ of the ISIS terrorist organization in the Idlib city.

From 16:40 till 17:30, a squadron of Tu-22M3 long-range bombers made a concentrated strike on 6 facilities in the Raqqah and Deir ez-Zor provinces. Their targets were terrorists’ oil production sites controlled by the ISIS, an ammunition depot and a workshop used for manufacturing and repairing of mortars.

The strikes resulted in destruction of the following facilities:

headquarters;

3 POL and ammunition depots; a plant producing explosives; a command centre; a workshop used for manufacturing and repairing of mortars.

3 large oil production sites; an oil transfer facility.

In the course of the day, the attack aviation from the Hmeymim airbase has planned to carry out 98 combat sorties to engage 190 objects of terrorist groupings.

By 17:00, 60 combat sorties have been performed, 138 objects have been destroyed.

Russian Aerospace Forces continue massive airstrikes against terrorists in accordance with the Air operation plan.

Russian Minister of Defence reported to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief on the results of the air operation in Syria   
   
http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/BAL_7091-550.jpg    
   
Armed Forces are conducting retaliatory operation aimed at elimination of leaders of terrorist organizations and their allies, disruption of control and supply systems, as well as destruction of the ISIS military and oil&gas production facilities. For that purpose, the number of aircraft in the air group was doubled and constitutes 69 aircraft.   

=============================
Russians inscribe "For Paris" on bombs destined to ISIS :

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

================================
   
Every day 143 combat sorties are performed.   
   
Naval grouping consists of 10 ships, among them 6 – in the Mediterranean Sea. On November 20, the ships of the Caspian flotilla performed launches of 18 cruise missiles against 7 targets in the Raqqah, Idlib and Aleppo provinces. All the aims were hit.   
   
https://youtu.be/yf2SZ_gjtA0   
   
In total, in the course of the air operation, aircraft of the strategic and tactical aviation have performed 522 sorties, 101 air- and sea-based cruise missiles were launched, 1400 tons of air bombs of different purpose were dropped. In total, 826 enemy objects were destroyed.   
   
https://youtu.be/ascSnBbxfaU   
   
Main efforts were concentrated on undermining finance and economic basis of the ISIS. 15 facilities used for oil storage and processing as well as 525 tank trucks were destroyed.   
   
60 000 tons of oil were prevented from delivering to the black market every 24 hours, terrorists lost the opportunity to receive 1,5 million dollars daily.   
   
At the same time elimination of illegal armed groups and their leaders is continued.   
   
23 training bases of militants, 19 plants used for production of armament and explosives, 47 ammunition and materiel depots as well as other facilities were destroyed. That ensures the successful actions of the Syrian governmental forces in the areas of Aleppo, Idlib, mountainous Latakia and Palmyra.   
   
According to the objective monitoring data, the number of terrorists arriving in Syria is reducing while the flows of militants leaving the combat areas in the north and south-west directions are growing.   
   
Illegal armed groups are suffering significant losses. Over 600 militants were killed by a cruise missile strike made against one of facilities near Deir ez-Zor.   
   
In the course of the air operation, cruise missile strikes were conducted from the water zones of the Mediterranean and Caspian Seas at the distances of up to 1500 km; aviation was used from airfields located in Russia and Syria.

For the last 2 days, Russian Aerospace Forces have performed 141 combat sorties engaging 472 terrorist objects

http://eng.mil.ru/images/upload/2015/Udar5-550%281%29.jpg

In the course of the last 2 days, the Russian air group continued additional checking of targets and engagement of separate facilities of terrorist groupings, which are active on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

Aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces have performed 141 combat sorties engaging 472 terrorist objects in the Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, Homs, Raqqah, and Deir ez-Zor provinces.

Russian bombers from the Hmeymim airbase have been performing combat missions on elimination of columns of petrol tank vehicles and oil production plants in the oil-bearing regions in the north and east of Syria. These facilities in the districts of Palmyra, Deir ez-Zor and Raqqah are controlled by terrorists and constitute their main source of income.

Near Raqqah, in the course of the air reconnaissance, two columns of vehicles were detected, which transported oil to processing plants controlled by the ISIS grouping. An airstrike made by Su-34 aircraft destroyed about 80 petrol tank vehicles of terrorists.

15 km to the south-west of Raqqah, a large oil depot terminal was destroyed.

50 km to the south of Raqqah, Su-34 bombers eliminated an oil production plant controlled by terrorists.

In the Al-Makhimira desert, 50 km to the north of Deir ez-Zor, Su-34 bombers made a strike on petrol tanks. The direct hit completely eliminated the object.

It is to be emphasized that in the course of the last five days, the Russian aircraft have destroyed over 1000 petrol tank vehicles, which had carried out transportation of crude oil to the plants controlled by the ISIS terrorists.

According to available information, received from the Information centre in Baghdad, terrorists suffered the heaviest losses in the provinces of Deir ez-Zor, Raqqah and Aleppo.

Thus, near Aleppo city, as a result of strike of the Russian aviation, the system of control over the illegal armed groups was completely disrupted. Terrorists are disintegrated and leave for the districts, which are still under their control to dig in at new lines.

Illegal armed groups active in the vicinity of settlements Serakab (Idlib province) and Qalaat al-Madiq (Hama province), suffered significant losses from missile and bomb strikes of the Russian aviation.

Most terrorist units in these areas have left their positions without permission despite their leaders’ threats. They discarded their Islamic State (and other terrorist groups’) clothes and insignia to blend in with the local population.

This is yet another case when objective monitoring data shows the results of attacks of the Russian aviation and Navy against terrorist objects.

In the connection with a large-scale operation on simultaneous destruction of terrorists’ infrastructure all over the territory of Syria, the so-called fake “human rights observatories” and other propaganda organizations were expected to issue another batch of stovepiping in the Western media.

However, it is necessary to emphasize the fact that after the tragic events in Paris, over Sinai and in Mali they have become more careful in their statements.

On the other hand, statements by certain alleged military experts (such as the official representative of the US Armed Forces Central Command, who has made a statement saying that “most Russian airstrikes are aimed against moderate Syrian opposition”) remain the same.

These statements are also made without presenting any proofs, with no specific facts, and citing unspecified sources.

The more precise the Russian airstrikes are, the more persistently the Western colleagues are trying to convince the foreign public claiming that not all terrorists are that bad.

Perhaps this is how they see it from across the ocean. But in reality, terrorism is known to have no comparatives and no ethnicity.

Terrorism is an absolute evil, all forms of which must be fought.

The Russian side has objective control data on the results of last week’s air operation.

They demonstrate high effectiveness of the operation and significant damage suffered by terrorists all over Syria.

Defence Attache at the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Moscow was urgently summoned to the Russian Ministry of Defence where he was presented an official protest concerning the actions of the Turkish Air Force

Defence Attache at the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Moscow was urgently summoned to the Russian Ministry of Defence where he was presented an official protest concerning the actions of the Turkish Air Force containing following statements:

“Today at 9:30 the Russian aircraft, which performed combat counterterrorist missions was shot down by an aircraft of the Turkish Air Force.

The Russian aircraft did not cross the Turkish border and acted only against objects on the territory of Syria.

Combat actions of the Russian aviation were conducted against illegal terrorist formations, which consist of a large number of militants from the Russian North Caucasus.

Specialists of the Russian Defence Ministry failed to organize cooperation with the Turkish party by emergency communication link.

The Defence Ministry considers actions of the Turkish Air Force as an unfriendly act.

At present, the Russian Defence Ministry is designing a complex of measures directed to respond such incidents.

Combat missions against terrorists in Syria will be continued.”

Speech of the Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Lt.Gen. Sergei Rudskoy on provocative actions of the Turkish Air Force

https://youtu.be/KGlJFoIBKQw

Today, at 10:24 (MSK) an F-16 fighter of the Turkish Air Force shot down Su-24M tactical bomber of the Russian Aerospace Forces, which was performing a combat sortie over the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. The fighter supposedly performed the strike with IR homing headed short-range missile.

The objective monitoring data confirmed that the Turkish warplane did not make any attempt to establish a communication or visual contact with the Russian bomber.

The missile hit the Su-24M aircraft over the territory of Syria. The bomber crash place is on the territory of Syria four kilometres far from the borderline. The Su-24M crew managed to eject. According to the preliminary data, fire from the ground killed one of the pilots.

The objective monitoring data shows that the Russian aircraft did not cross the Turkish borderline.

Data received from the Syrian Air Defence Forces confirmed this fact as well.

Moreover, radar reconnaissance data, which was received from the Hmeymim airbase, registered Syrian airspace violation by the attacking aircraft of the Turkish Air Force.

This fact is assessed as a flagrant violation of international law with extremely grave consequences and the direct breach of Memorandum on air incident prevention and flight safety over the Syrian Arab Republic, which had been signed by the USA and relevant for all countries of the coalition, including Turkey.   

That is why the Turkish party started urgent consultations with the NATO instead of immediate contacting with the Russian Defence Ministry.

Defence Attaché of Turkey in the Russian Federation was presented a decisive protest against the actions of the Turkish Air Force, which had led to the loss of the Russian aircraft.

It is to be mentioned that from the beginning of the operation, the Russian Defence Ministry had established a direct telephone line between the National Centre for State Defence Control of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of National Defence of Turkey. But it has no practical use due to the fault of the Turkish party.

In order to evacuate the Russian pilots from the landing point, a search-and-rescue operation was conducted by two Mi-8 helicopters. In the course of the operation, one of helicopters was damaged by small arms fire and performed an emergency landing in the neutral area. One contract serviceman – member of Marine Troops – was killed.

The personnel of the search-and-rescue team and the helicopter crew were evacuated and are now at the Hmeymim airbase. The helicopter was destroyed by mortar fire conducted from the territory controlled by illegal armed groups.

The operation on searching and rescuing the crew of the Russian bomber is continued.

It is to be emphasized that in the action area of the Russia aviation the Syrian governmental troops are conducting operation on elimination of illegal armed groups, which include over 1000 militants from the North Caucasus according to the Russian data sources.

It is to be stressed that none of the Russian partners and none of the states, which are fighting against ISIS, has mentioned that there are units of so-called “moderate opposition” in that they do not recommend to make strikes in this area. On the contrary, these territories are known as the ones controlled by the most radical illegal armed groups.

Now the General Staff is elaborating additional security measures for the Russian airbase.

First: All the activities of the attack aviation will be carried out only under cover of fighter aircraft.

Second: Air defence will be reinforced. For that purpose, the Moskva cruiser equipped with air defence system Fort analogous to the S-300 one will go to the shore zone of Latakia. Russian Defence Ministry warns that all the potentially dangerous targets will be destroyed.

Third: Contacts with Turkey will be terminated at the military level.

Russia to move S-400 air defense system to Syria — defense minister

November 25, 12:49 UTC+3   

The S-400 air defense missile system will be brought to the Hmeimim base at the decision of the commander-in-chief, Sergey Shoigu informs

MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Russia will move its air defense system S-400 Triumf to the Hmeimim air base in Syria, accommodating its air and space group, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Wednesday.

"The S-400 air defense missile system will be brought to the Hmeimim base at the decision of the commander-in-chief," he said.

On Tuesday, a Russian Sukhoi-24M bomber was downed with an air-to-air missile launched from an F-16 fighter of the Turkish Air Force. One of the pilots died and the other was rescued and brought to the Russian base. A Russian Mi-8 helicopter was destroyed during the search and evacuation operation. One Marine serving in the army on contract was killed.

Turkey claims that the downed plane had violated its air space. The Russian Defense Ministry says the Sukhoi-24M stayed over Syria all the time and it was the Turkish fighter that violated the border during the attack.

The Russian General Staff has warned that Russia will be destroying all potentially dangerous targets over Syria and moved towards the Syrian shores its guided missile cruiser The Moskva armed with the Fort system (the sea-launched equivalent of S-300).
