ISIS Claims Its Cells Foiled Aerial Landing, Killed Two Russian Soldiers In Central Syria

Illustrative image

On April 17, ISIS claimed that its fighters had killed two Russian special forces operatives during clashes in Syria’s central region.

In a statement released by the Amaq news agency, the group claimed that two operatives were killed during a failed air landing in the outskirts of the town of al-Sukhnah in the eastern countryside of Homs.

The operatives’ unit landed from a helicopter and engaged in a heated battle with a group of ISIS terrorists who were at the time operating in the area.

According to Amaq, the battle ended with the killing of two Russian operatives and the injury of several others. The helicopter was also damaged.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and many other source reported a series of Russian airstrikes on ISIS cells in central Syria in the last 48 hours. However, no clashes were mentioned.

ISIS cells in the central region sustained some heavy losses in the last few months as a result of operations carried out by Syrian pro-government forces and the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The terrorist group’s claims are yet to be verified. These claims may be nothing but a propaganda stunt. The Ministry of Defense of Russia, which usually acknowledges any human losses in Syria, is yet to comment on these claims.

Fair treatment

If isis killed 2 Russian soldiers Russia will kill 100 for 2 solider

Jens Holm

Thats no reliable conclusion at all.

ISIS has killed even several Russian generals and are high qualified first class guerilla infantery.

If You were reliable, they were dead many years ago.

Much as You dont know Your enemy, which almost always is number one in defeating them.

Oliver Eitel

maybe officers but not generals………..boy you have no idea of military herachy ….no wonder Zinonistan-US-UK-NATO is going down the hill……

Jens Holm

Oh yes, it happen just west of DEZ and in DEZ even the town was not taken at all.



One single asking gave this by gugle. One click in Yor head gave confrimed how the deep illitarate deep dark stale is made by people like You.

boy you have no idea of military herachy ….no wonder Zinonistan-US-UK-NATO is going down the hill..

Concrete Mike

Isis dont have gps guided mortars, NATO does.

Its western military that killed the russian general , NOT ISIS.

You should know Jens, as you work with and for ISIS.

Jens Holm

Some mortar hirt You:(

We lie, we steal, we cheat.

Simon Ndiritu

If confirmed, retribution will be fierce and devastating: if not, airstrikes will continue. Terrorists have no where really to hide.

Jihadi Colin

I watched a lot of ISIS videos. Rarely do you see anything they’re actually shooting at. Most of the videos are right out of Hollywood in concept if not in fact.

Simon Ndiritu

They are well trained in PR and lobbying by their masters

Jens Holm

Thats right. It makes no sense to relate ISIS to a mix of propaganda and true movies at all.

A kind of minimu should be they also showed their dirty laundry.

Jens Holm

Another joke. Facts are how many registrated military killings and murders they have.

It makes bo sense to conclude from videos, where some are propaganda.

For the moment I look and learn from old Judge Judy reality TV. You cant conclude from that court that all americans are like that.

Yesterday was another good example about USA. Its true about 165 millions are poor. But thats not the same as they all starve in streets. Most of them actually has low paid jobs and many actually are children and old people, where were few works.

The registrated unimployment rate is 6,9% and not 50%.

Comments insinuating 50 % are starving and in the streets hardly having an umbrella as home is made, beacuse people from USSR as well as the Arabistan have no context for what really going on there.

They also only know – or think they know – the upper and downers class – exists. They do forget or deny that one good thing for a typical well organized country are the 50% in the MIDDLE CLASS doing pretty well.

But thats the reasons for I suppport Kapitilisme but as I am also partly help the real poor ones. And I didnt make a lot of tax being middle class, there hardly was money for help.

I add Kapitalisme has its very bad sides too.For me all alternatives are worse.

Jens Holm

What a joke.

cechas vodobenikov

corny and jens claim their diseased schizophrenia can be treated w LSD from CIA

Jens Holm

Who says???


I call bullshit,they would have had more than one chopper to land forces on the ground from different directions and probably Gunships like these backing them up.



Exactly. They would have had air support.

Jens Holm

Sure but ISIS is not like that at all. They aree experts in hiding very well. Many soldiers as well as soldiers can make those from ISIS forced to defend themself hard.

But as written in the article this only is rapported by Amagh far from there.

Jihadi Colin

Al Suknah was cleansed of ISIS in 2017 as far as I recall. It’s also surrounded by arid desert, so it’s not as though ISIS can hide in mountains and forests living off the land. Nor was there any renewed ISIS activity 2018-20. Now suddenly with Amerikastan desperate to find ways to hurt Russia and Syria, ISIS has turned up out of nowhere 🙄


Syria has lots of underlying karst geology in the interior, providing caves.

ISIS had plenty of time to amass stockpiles there, so it’s plausible that small groups of hardened IS fighters could be lodged in the area for some time to come.

Jens Holm

Thats highly incorrect. It has been a center for so many fightings during time, so You must be born yesterday.

Supreme Blyat

Your comment implies Americans had some technology that can hide moving things in plain desert that Russians can’t detect.

Jihadi Colin

It is simple enough. Move at night and fly the Amerikastani flag if noticed. Putin is going to extreme lengths to avoid didn’t clashes with Amerikastan.

Supreme Blyat

In the middle of Palmyra deseet…

Oliver Eitel

that is not the case, its more like US+Israel always protecting their terrorists….then when night comes and Russian evil birds are not on sky….the good freedom fighters get out of American and Israelian bases to spread freedom in Syria but must return before evil Russian birds wake up to kill them all…..same with Turkey…..they are hiding between the legs of Americans and Isralians and Turks….bubbbbu bubbbu, and when Russians are not there they scream and act like Rambo wuuuuwuwuwu…oh no……..Russians bird………..buubbbubbbuuuu back to mama

Supreme Blyat

Why are Russians not there, during the night, are thet afraid of the dark?

Jens Holm

If You are not ironic, You should study what deserts are and how big and with so many hidingplaces, they are.

But as number one You should learn the distance from Palmyra to DEZ is almost 300 kilometer.

The Russains are too few and equipped primitive in the Russian way. Even USA with their hightech hard can cover those distance even they have radar sence for night vision as well as movements and even extra ears.

Jens Holm

f You need a job, Im sure ISIS will recommend You as general for Russians, Assads, Iran, Hesbollah, Israel and USA.


This report sounds like one of the iron_zion fantasies

Jihadi Colin

Where is he anyway? Seems to be taking a break.


No, he was talking trash as usual a day ago, you can go to the report about the mossad base hit hard in Irak where the report stated like 9 mossad agent died or something like that, men the zionist keyboard warriors activity went into overdrive big time! that was funny to be honest.

Jens Holm

OK still alive:) Very good for many to have someone to blame for anything.

Many here are learned by their Goverments, there is a Nobel price for it:(

Jens Holm

I might be as him.

I again has a job even smaller. I lost it because of Covid. Covid is doing fine here right now.

Next its spring here in Denmark and I have my garden too. I have just planted two small appletrees and moved around some strawberries.

Jens Holm

It sounds as You have created it or has got it fro free frojm Your Governess.

Maybee You shoul ahev a fan and resart Your comuter. Something is terrible wrong.

Band Itkoitko

Multifrontal fake news: from Europe, from Syria, from all around the world, but manufactured in a single place.

ISIS claimed something…

Jihadi Colin

Question for Russians: can anyone please tell me who this man is? He is maddeningly familiar. I know I have seen him before, but I can’t put a name to him:


If anyone is interested, I found him on this video:


Jens Holm

well done.

Lone Ranger

If it was true video would be already up on the net. CIAisis faglets…will cry and rage 🤗 An airstrike a day keeps CIAisis away…

Jihadi Colin

Oh I’m sure they’ll greenscreen something in a week or so.

Jens Holm

For the moment I see tennis every day. No ISIS and Russian dead ones on those nets too.

Jens Holm

I use my own kind of “weatherrapport ” for this.

IF its true and those two are killed ISIS might have lost 6 ones.
