    Keep up mate. This is the wrong thread for this.

    The answer is yes and much about it yesterday from post 802 in the correct thread https://www.russiadefence.net/t7040p800-russian-military-involvement-and-aid-to-syria-12

    But what about masses of civilians? We know that terrorists are using them as shield.

    I believe when the Americans levelled Mosul and the terrorists used civilians as human shields they said civilian deaths are regrettably part of war and it was all the fault of the terrorists.

    Obviously here they are freedom fighters so it must all be the fault of Russian Hackers.

    I don't think so. As far as I know there are no active or flyable MİG-25's in the world. Pre-Civil War Libya was one of the last active user of MİG-25's.


    but Maybe they can still work after some overhaul or restoration. Who knows?

    Aparently a MiG-25 took off during the recent incident with the Israeli F-16, reportedly because the airbase was under attack

    Has anyone any pics videos or info on the following being used by the SAA.
    240mm tulpan mortar,
    240 mm Mortar M240
    160mm mortar,
    S-23 180 mm
    2A36 Giatsint-B 152mm
    85mm D-44
    76mm zis-3
    T-34 mounted with D-30
    100mm BS3
    100mm T-12
    85mm D-48
    57mm zis-2
    B-11 107mm
    B-10 82mm
    2B9 Vasilek 82mm mortar
    Zsu-57-2

    One system I thought might have been deployed by Russia was the 2s7 pion ideal for Syria could use laser or gps guided munitions

    It's only strange if you allow yourself to forget for a moment that they're unabashed hypocrites always pursuing their agenda, otherwise it makes perfect sense.

    I would guess that the Russians & Syrians recognize that the West is again revving up its giant MSM BS machine in order to aid its terrorist proxies, and figure that the effect of that may be better attenuated if they play along to a degree with this security council agreement. But, at the same time, the Russians stated up front at the UN that they will not cease their military campaign against those proxies. I'm of the "if it's to be done let it be done quickly" school, but I'm also not an insider seeing all the angles. Perhaps the approach they're taking makes a lot of sense. I also keep in mind all this happened before, in regard to Aleppo, but in the end the West's propaganda drive changed nothing; Aleppo was liberated.

    Not funny at all, they just called it collateral damage and kept going. The normal 'one rule for us and another for everyone else' attitude of the US.

    But it looks like the Syrian military will just keep on at it too

    Found this map, don't know the author but it seems to give a pretty good indication of the main areas of activity by the SAA. Sorry its Twitter but neither the Syrian or Russian Governments are issuing maps atm.

    Turkish jets bombarding Shaykh al Hadid at the moment. It is the district where the only gap of the "margin" is located.

    This week, some sources claim that Shaykh al Hadid and surrounding hills will be captured in the west, and more advance through Afrin will be made from North.

    Americans are silent for some time, I wonder what they really have in their mind...
