3 Russian troops were killed in a terrorist attack in Syria in late February, the Russian Defense Ministry said on March 25.

According to the defense ministry, the bodies of the killed service members were delivered to Russia.

The military added that following the attack the Russian Aerospace Forces and Special Operations Forces tracked and eliminated a group of 30 terrorists linked in the attack.

The defense ministry provided no details regarding the location of the incident. However, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed earlier that ISIS members had killed several Russians in attacks in the Homs desert. Most likely, the terroirst group was refering this incident.

    RIP RUSSIAN TROOPS …ALL 30 ISIS TERRORIST INVOLVE HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED

  • DontBelieveEitherPropaganda

    R.I.P.
    I just hope that this now will finally lead to clearing of the Homs desert. The pocket should have been done last year.. And with Idlib being “protected” from SAA by Putin, why not then use the time when Idlib cant be attack with clearing Homs pocket?

    • Julian Clegg

      Maybe the Russians were there precisely trying to clear the terrorist remnants.

  • christianblood

    Russians were careless and lax again! Never send a humanitarian aid or any kind of personnel inside Syria without being escorted by heavily armed units complete with APCs!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Russian military is not good at operational planning and that is why it loses wars. In Afghanistan they moved untrained troops without the benefit of strategic intelligence or adequate air cover. In Syria, their numbers are too small and their hands are tied by the scum Putin.

      • christianblood

        The definitely need to work on this or they will unnecessarily lose more men in the Syrian theater.

    I am very sorry to hear that. If any family reads this know that many in America do not want any hard to come to Russians. And to us they are heroes for helping turn the tide against the Empires at work in Syria.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The Jew bastard Putin is getting Russians killed by his Zionist scum “partners” and the Russian military is hog tied in Syria as it is not allowed to go on the offensive as Iran has been advocating for over a year now. The Americunt and Zionist agenda is to carve up Syria and kill as many Russians as they can, as they did in Afghanistan circa 1980’s. The Russians need a real nationalist leader and not a Jew corrupt shill like Putin who did not utter a word about the Zionist annexation of Golan.

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      You are braver then I to come out and speak plainly what has needed to be said for so long now.
      I like Putin because he is not the active problem. But his passiveism allows the problem to continue being cultivated. So that in itself (as you so forwardly said) is the problem.
      Below I post a famous quote that has some sad ‘yet relevant’ similarities. And keep in mind, I like the Russian people. Every people has some flaws. I am only trying to point out how an earlier leader of Russia was a bit weak when it came to standing up against the growing Zionist influence and power inside of Russia and on the international scale back in those days.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Thanks, I just state the TRUTH as I see it. It may upset some people, but all my life I have been a soldier and not a diplomat. The FACT is that Russia has no policy in Syria, Putin is in Jew pockets and has Asperger syndrome and limited intelligence. He lacks the strategic vision needed to take on savages as evil as the Americunts who are expanding their influence in Syria, Iraq and have total control over Turkey and Jordan. Most intelligence concludes that there are at least 75,000 CIA and MOSSAD sponsored terrorists in Idlib and Eastern Euphrates. If Russia was a free nation, it would have armed Iran and poured in at least 20,000 front line troops in Syria and then bomb the hell out of the Idlib pocket. It is not difficult to wipe out terrorists in such a small pocket. It has been done before in Grozny. Just raze it to the ground and then send in Hezbollah.

        • Real Anti-Racist Action

          I fully agree with you. I also try and get this point across in hopes of awakening more people to the desperate need of such logical measures. Yes I hope I do not get banned like 1984 book for simply stating what needs to be said.
          Please continue spreading the word. Truth is someone that future generations can appreciate about us today. For future generations will gain nothing good by others covering up truth or tip toeing around it.
          Only the full truth will help people in future generations.

            People are fed up with Jew fanned lies, hatred and warmongering. At some point a critical mass is always reached and there is a general backlash. There is another good article by Saker on the dying days of Americunt liars. Southfront should post that too.

            Placing the USA on a collapse continuum with Dmitry Orlov
            The word ‘catastrophe‘ has several meanings, but in its original meaning in Greek the word means a “sudden downturn” (in Greek katastrophē ‘overturning, sudden turn,’ from kata- ‘down’ + strophē ‘turning’). As for the word “superpower” it also has several possible definitions, but my preferred one is this one “Superpower is a term used to describe a state with a dominant position, which is characterized by its extensive ability to exert influence or project power on a global scale. This is done through the combined-means of economic, military, technological and cultural strength, as well as diplomatic and soft power influence. Traditionally,superpowers are preeminent among the great powers” this one, “an extremely powerful nation, especially one capable of influencing international events and the acts and policies of less powerful nations” or this one “an international governing body able to enforce its will upon the most powerful states“.

            If Putin allows Israel annex Golan Heights then what’s the point of having Russian troops and military equipment there? I have to admit, the US despite their regime changes, invasion, and influences on weaker governments does their best to assist their “allies” the SDF is the biggest example. They are so heavily armed that Turkey is apprehensive about conducting a head on operation against them. I really can’t pinpoint Putin’s strategy in Syria. Half of Syria is carved and controlled by the US backed forces now Israel has US recognition of Golan Heights which is a major blow to Syria and Russia’s economy. When you step back and look at the situation as a whole Assad is not winning this war in Syria, he’s getting the scraps basically. Turkey is quiet and not helping fight the Kurds and they kill more SAA soldiers than they do SDF forces. Israel has the most important actor to recognize Golan Heights as its territory. That poses a serious threat to Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon. So I ask, what the hell is Putin’s Russia doing?

          • Zionism = EVIL

            You are smart man with a sharp mind. Russia is playing the big league with a bizarre minuscule idiot like Putin who is trying to please both the Americunts and Zionist “partners”. Russia went into Syria to preserve its only bases and to protect Zionists as the headchoppers would have eventually turned on the Zionists. Putin and even the USSR played the Arabs, even Sadat had to kick them out before the Ramadan war. For whatever their faults, the Pakistanis acted like a great power against a much stronger enemy India which attacked them with Zionist supplied weapons. Instead of crying out it, their PM Imran Khan and defence council met in mere 2 hours after the attack and retaliated with force. India as I had predicted based on real experienced chickened out after its planes were blasted out of the sky in front of millions of gawkers filming on smart phones.That is how strong determined powers act. Russia has SAMS, somewhat modern aircraft and even attack helos in Syria and has done fuck all against the headchoppers or its Zionist partners. Assad himself is frustrated and went to Tehran to show his displeasure at Putin’s vacillation. Syria is being carved up in front of our eyes and nobody is doing anything about it. For all his shortcomings Erdogan is the only one who openly challenged the Zionist annexation of Golan.

      Blaming and spreading misinformation on Putin, savior of Syria, is actually supporting and serving zeonism indirectly. I think you are misunderstanding the ground situation and balance of power of syrian conflict or deliberately spreading propoganda and hatred to serve zeonism. Iran and other allies of syria are also not attacking SDF or Isreal. Why? Are they Zeonist puppet as well ? No. Because they are not fool and stupid. They know any stupid move could worsen the situation. Assad, Syrian people and their allies will liberate Idlib and eastern Syria by wisdom & smart move. But I am wondering that why syrian army is not clearing the IS held eastern Homs pocket while there is no issue to do so?

  • Paul Sharpe

    RIP good people, your blood feeds the Tree of Liberty. Syria would no longer exist if it wasn’t for Putin’s Russia, in my book that buys a ton of goodwill. While the official line is every square inch of Syria will come back to her people then Russia retains my support. Until proven wrong, I tip my hat to Putin’s 5D chess judo game. Think of the world without Russia, that US jackboot smashing every face on the planet.

    Well, it is good idea y there are some evidences about this.
