Russian airstrikes on ISIS bases and additional military equipment to strengthen positions
DAMASCUS, (BM) – Although there has been no confrontation between Turkey and Russia in recent months, the Syrian Arab Army, with the Russian military’s help, continues to carry out operations to remove ISIS from the country. According to the Lebanese news agency Al-Masdar News, the Russian Air Force has launched many airstrikes on ISIS facilities.
The attacks took place in central Syria around southern Al-Raqqa, eastern Hama, and northeastern Homs. Field sources claim that ISIS has a solemn fortress around the city of Al-Resafa. This region is where airstrikes concentrated in recent days.
Al-Masdar News claims that Russian air aces are bombing parts of Al-Sa’an district, located in Hama, and enemy positions in the Badia Al-Sukhnah region of Homs. BulgarianMilitary.com reminds you that the Russian airstrikes support the Syrian Arab Army’s operations and carry out almost daily.
Russia sent more armored vehicles
According to Russia’s Aviapro news agency, Moscow has decided to strengthen its position in the Syrian city of Ayn Isa and Tel Tamar. Agency sources claim that Russia has transferred a significant amount of boron equipment to these areas. Locals spotted a column of Russian armored personnel carriers, heavy trucks carrying soldiers, weapons, and ammunition. According to military experts, Russian troops could increase their presence in the area to 800 people.
According to the Russian edition, the tension in the region has not abated for a long time. Tensions exist over almost daily attacks by pro-Turkish soldiers attacking the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian democratic forces. Russian military experts say the pressure began practically immediately after Moscow refused to control the region.
Military experts say such clashes could create a new circle of enemies and friends and recent conflicts that could escalate into long-lasting ones if they seem one-day at the moment. Such conflicts often provoke humanitarian crises in the area in which they broke out.
War in Syria
In February, Turkey lost at least 62 troops killed in Syria. Nearly 100 soldiers were wounded, Syrian-backed forces destroyed dozens of Turkish armored vehicles, and more than ten drones, including drones, were shot down. Washington has repeatedly accused Moscow of involvement in the deaths of Turkish soldiers, Russia rejects these allegations.
In early March, the presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed that a ceasefire came into force in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad later said that if the US and Turkish military did not leave the country, Damascus would use power.
The reason for the Russian-Turkish negotiations was a sharp aggravation of the situation in Idlib, where in January, a large-scale offensive by the Syrian army against the positions of the armed opposition and terrorists began.
Government forces recaptured nearly half of the Idlib de-escalation zone and left behind several Turkish observation posts. After that, Ankara sharply increased its military contingent in the region and launched the operation “Spring Shield” to push the Syrian troops. Militants are loyal to Ankara and support Turkey.
