    Patch is one of "Manbij Military Council" according to the internet so that would be Kurds, right?

    I wonder if this means that Russian troops are again wearing "terrorist symbols"? Cool


    ANNA footage of Russian convoy to Manbij, link up with SDF, and Russo-Syrian danceoff, including Chechen lezginka



    Erdogan now

    Question for the Balkanites on the forum....is this dance called the "Remove the Kebab"?

    The Russians have proven they will work with anyone to get rid of ISIS.

    Does not really prove anything.

    I would not believe the US is hard fast ally either... they can change alliances overnight when they want to... 1990s best friends with the Taleban... after 2000 or so not so much.

    No, this is not right. Russia knows why they fight, and who their allies are. Russia helps their friends without make this war a global war.

    Can we direct this discussion into some other direction?

    Discussing Russian involvement in Syrian war sounds like a promising avenue of conversation....

    What I deleted was argument and abuse... not a discussion and therefore not worth keeping.

    This thread is about Russian military involvement and assistance in Syria.

    Arguments and abuse and other crap will be deleted... except this warning.

    Remember when Rostov-on-Don sub fired cruise missiles at jihadists in Syria back in 2015? Here is drone footage of event, complete with moment of launch filmed from UAV:

    It seems that he has toned down a bit now that he has to use a colostomy bag for the rest of his life after getting so
    much anal action from his jihadi heroes.

    Satellite imagery of the Russian military intelligence center of the air base Khmeimim in Syria dated March 12, 2017



    You can consider at least 5 Su-34 and 8 Su-24M (2) bombers, 5 Su-30SM fighters and 4 Su-25 attack aircraft [and also four Su-35S fighters]. In addition, there are no less than 1 An-124, Tu-154, An-30, An-74, Il-20 (22) and at least 3 Il-76.

    Interesting discussion in RT ,Someone with a Russian name ,that i cant spell ,using that weird alphabet and his bio is all RUssian , told this in RT discussion , about the Israeli incident in Syria where the Israeli angry general threatened Syria to destroy its air defenses if dare to defend themselves against their attacks.  Neutral  

    Can anyone confirm if the Russian minister of defense told this?


    @Russian guy:

    ... S-300 shooting of 2 Israeli planes CONFIRMED .Now, they're angry. Good

    @Allan Esterhuizen
    ... S200 , not S300

    @RUssian guy:
    ... Both

    @Olive Magnet
    ...Confirmed by who? Where's the pictures? There aren't any. Fake news!

    @Russian guy:
    ...The Russian Ministry of Defense said it. Fake news?



    https://www.rt.com/news/381303-israel-threatens-syria-defense/


    Syria government is not popular for inventing things. Syrian perspective who have contact with Syrian army general staff ,even explained that it was 6 missiles launched at 4 planes that invaded Syria and that two were shutdown. The Syrian air defenses scared the Israeli airforce and they had to abort their mission and flee towards Jordan airspace after entering for 5 minutes in Palmyra.

    If you know some country defenses are "totally useless" against your airforce ,then why get angry and complain about them? threatening to destroy them?  Wink

    The only reason he will seek to target Syria air defenses is because they feel
    they are quite dangerous for their airforce.  anyone agrees?   Cool

    Whatever it is the truth.. it is clear ,now that the Israel airforce for the first time admits that Syrian air defenses are a major threat to them so much that they now threaten to destroy them. and that flying over Syria is a major risk ,even for Israel modernized planes. russia

    it have been said that Syria S-200s have been improved by Russia with more newer sensors ,so i will not discount their capabilities to do the job of defending today any airspace ,like some people likes to do.

    The team of reality deniers now shut-up. They tried to deny the reality, in line with the arguments of Israel, but failed.

    Russia summoned Israeli ambassador over airstrikes near Palmyra

    The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador in Moscow to demand explanations for the airstrikes Israel conducted near the Syrian city of Palmyra last week, the ministry confirmed.

    FILE PHOTO: An Israeli Air Force F-15 fighter jet © Amir CohenSyria claims Israeli jet shot down after strike near Palmyra, IDF says all aircraft undamaged

    Ambassador Gary Koren was called in by Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Friday after news about the strike emerged, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told the media on Monday, confirming earlier media reports.

    The embassy refrained from commenting on Koren’s visit over the weekend, but the Russian Foreign Ministry did say that the ambassador’s visit “was mostly to discuss the latest events in Syria and around it.”

    On Friday morning, Israeli planes attacked several targets in Syria, reportedly destroying advanced arms provided to the Lebanese militant movement Hezbollah. Syria’s air defense force fired anti-aircraft missiles at the planes as they were returning from the mission. Israel said it shot down one of the interceptors with its Arrow long-range SAMs.

    On Sunday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened to destroy Syria’s air defenses if the country attacked Israeli warplanes again.

    “Next time, if the Syrian aerial defense apparatus acts against our planes, we will destroy it,” Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli Public Radio on Sunday. “We won't hesitate. Israel's security is above everything else; there will be no compromise.”

    Israel has a long record of violating Syrian airspace with impunity that stretches back to before 2011, when the country’s current armed conflict began. Arguably the most famous incident occurred in 2007, when an alleged Israeli raid destroyed a suspected nuclear reactor in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor governorate.

    How has the composition of the air force of the Russian Air Force in Syria changed in 2015-2017?

    To date, the Russian Federation Air Force Group in Syria uses the airfield Khmeimim, as well as the airfields of the Shirat Hop in Homs and Tijas in Palmyra. Another Russian base was expected to appear in Syria at the Shayrat airfield, 35 kilometers south-east of Homs. Accommodation on the base would, if necessary, bring the number of combat aircraft to one hundred.

    In January 2016, the media reported on the transformation of the airport El-Kamyshly to a new Russian air base. Kurdish and Turkish media reported the arrival on January 16 on the territory of the 154th base of the Syrian army of 100 Russian military under the command of a certain lieutenant-general. The Russian delegation carried out an inspection inside the airport and around. On January 23, The Times published information about the arrival of 200 Russian military specialists who started work at the airport runway near El Qamishli. This information was confirmed by the sources of the publication in US intelligence. However, the use of the airfield did not begin.

    At the moment, the Russian air group in Syria has 24 aircraft.
