Aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces conducted at least 2,000 sotries and carried out 5,850 airstrikes on terrorist targets in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday.

Chief of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operational Directorate Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy emphasized that the most important terrorist objects were hit by Kalibr cruise missiles and by strikes of the Tu-95MC strategic bombers.

“The most important objects of the Daesh [ISIS] terrorists were struck by high-precision long-ranged weapons. So, Kalibr cruise missiles destroyed six objects. T95MS aircraft destroyed four objects with Kh-101 missiles,” he said.

Rudskoy said that about 20,000 square kilometers of Syrian territory were liberated from terrorist during the period.

According to the general, Syrian forces have liberated at least 55 towns from ISIS and killed some 2,000 terrorists in the province of Aleppo since June 1 and now the Syrian military and its allies continue advancing against ISIS along the Euphrates River.

In the northeast of Aleppo province, in the area of the Euphrates River, the Syrian armed forces continue an offensive against the Daesh [ISIS] terrorists. At least 55 populated areas were liberated in the region since June 1,” Rudskoy said.

Last weekend, reports appeared that government forces reached the Euphrates River and took control of a part of the al-Bukamal-Aleppo highway.

    At least airstrikes works.

      It appears that the Russian targeting is rather more effective than that of the US Coalition who seem to be very successful killing civilians in Mosul and Raqqa for example as well as civilian infrastructure such as water treatment plants , electricity infrastructure and hospitals etc. The US is however a world expert in bombing sand nearby to terrorists as well.

        and yet they have no problem accusing other countries of terrorism and poor human rights records lol

    20000 squaremeters?

    Thats the amount of the field I inherited 6 years ago…..

    the typos made by sf are curious, of late.

    “About 20,000 square kilometers or 40 percent of total territory was liberated up from terrorists over the last two months”.

    this is from the Russian Defence Ministry website.

      Schooling in the West these days is appalling John. ‘Trumpisms’ such as its ‘big, very big, massive, amazing , smart ‘ etc are the order of the day.
      Perhaps a description of ” A big area that’s massively bigger that Miguel’s field and Red Ticks Lawn or an amazing percent of total fields was liberated ‘ etc would be more accurate ?

      Can see now why US buy Russian aerospace engines for NASA

      • John Whitehot

        iirc that happens because the US industry never developed an engine in the class of thrust of the Russian RD 180.

        John Mccain was particular vocal about the issue, especially since the congress had to approve an exception to the sanctions in order to buy more.

        Because of course, the US actually does not buy much from Russia, it’s the EU that has major loss from the sanctions. Yet, if sanctions do not suit the US, they can always suspend them like they did, another big “FUCK THE EU” message with a large middle finger up drawed all over it.

    Article says:
    “…Aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces conducted at least 2,000 sotries and carried out 5,850 airstrikes on terrorist targets in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Monday….”

    This would bring the total to around 35,000 Russian air strikes.

    Terrorists are still in place after 35,000+++ Air Bombing – Air Strikes by the Russian Air Force in Syria.

            What’s the Syrian military position on any of the below:

            US Jordan Al Tanf bulge which has a straight road to Damascus
            US Jordan Deraa bulge to Damascus
            US Turk controlled Idlib bulge to Aleppo
            US controlled Raqqa bulge to Palmyra
            Israel control of Golan

            Damascus area – ?
            Hama area – ?
            Homs area – ?
            Aleppo area – ?

            “…how’s this related to the above discussion…”

            It is related because the Syrian government has little or no control in many of the areas listed despite:

            35,000+++ Air Bombing – Air Strikes by the Russian Air Force in Syria.

            80,000+++ Air Bombing – Air Strikes by the Israeli controlled US led “Terror Axis” countries in Syria.

          • John Whitehot

            ya ya,
            we all know your point:

            “The Syrian army lost, because it still hasn’t won”.

            It’s like saying, that in 1944 the nazis won because “Whine whine, the allies dropped millions tons of bombs on the nazis and they’re still in place”.

            Which by the way, was exactly what the nazi propaganda was saying in 1944.
            After 1945, go figure, they would not speak anymore.

            Now come up with some other suphism to make it look like you ain’t just telling bs.
            in the end, nobody gives a fuck.

            By end of this year people will find out what direction Syria will be heading.
            Either the outstanding areas have been liberated or the same battles will rerun.

    • John Whitehot

      bullshit.
      2000 sorties mean 2000 times single planes performed single missions, that includes of course multiship missions (if 4 planes fly out together on a strike, 4 sorties are recorded).

      5850 airstrikes means that 5850 targets have been hit.

      next.

        “…bullshit…” > You looked in the mirror and wrote about yourself, LoL:)))

        The fact remains the same:
        Terrorists are still in place after 35,000+++ Air Bombing – Air Strikes by the Russian Air Force in Syria.

        Next…

        • John Whitehot

          no, the facts are that they made 5850 airstrikes and you are unable to come up with anything less retarded than inventing numbers.

            That’s because your idea of “Terrorist” is not the same as other people’s.

        • gustavo

          Wrong, the terrorists are in the run. At this moment, they already know that they are death persons. Syria-Russia-Iran-Hezbolah will finish with these terrorists (hard and moderated), even if USA-Israel do not want to.

  • gustavo

    Thanks to Russia air strickes on ISIS-Daesh and the military help from Iran-Hezbolah, Syria will recover its territory and stability. This is something that must be appreciated from Russia aeroespace force. However, it looks like that more air supports were needed in many advanced operations.
