Support SouthFront

For the eighth day in a row, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) carried out dozens of airstrikes on terrorists’ positions in northern Hama and southern Idlib.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that more than 120 airstrikes targeted 30 areas in both governorates on May 3.

Several videos released by Syrian opposition activists show that most of the airstrikes were carried out by L-39 light attack warplanes and Mi-8\17 helicopters of the SyAAF.

According to Syrian pro-government sources, the airstrikes targeted positions, fortifications, ammo depots, vehicles and rocket launchers of several terrorist group currently stationed in Idlib and its surroundings.

A report by Syria’s al-Watan newspaper claimed that these airstrikes are a part of ongoing perpetrations for a military operation around Idlib.

An offensive must take place to, to destroy the front line position of the terrorist in iblid and to expend the safe zone are of the Russian air base from terrorist threat that have been taking place. Once this is achieve an alternative will given to the terrorist groups lay down arms or face completely annihilation.If they refuse which they will a second round of airstrikes will start for ten days and ten night straight and while the air strike taking place a next alternative will be given followed by a next round of offensives to expend gains, a pause of break then will a full scale invasion with no mention or warning may God have mercy on the innocent people this must come to an end.

Russia bombs empty buildings to let Assad feel good.Bombs are falling but terrorists are making video clip.How to.their know were Russia will bomb.So it is clear this is Erdogan informer which make sure terrorists are not hit.Why dud Russia resort to this tactic why not unleash ing calibre messiles to hit this targets unexpectedly.


Kalibr’s cost money. Cruise missiles cost a LOT of money. Remember Trump’s cruise missile escapde over East Ghouta? That little stunt cost the US taxpayer almost 3/4 of a bilion dollars. Wasted. In contrast iron bombs are dirt cheap. They’re inexpensive to make and it only cost some fuel to deliver them. It’s gross overkill and a waste of Russian tax payer’s money to use expensive weapons on dumb as a morlock Jihadists.

The thing is that by now the Jihadists have gone totally underground. All of Idlib is by now one big giant Swiss cheese. That’s why these airstrikes are basically pointless. And that’s why using Kalibr’s would be even more pointless. All the headchopper infrastructure is safely under ground. The RuAF and SyAF are basically sent out as a show of force, kabuki theater so Assad and Putin can prove that they are responding to these Jihadis. And I reckon the RuAF and SyAF are trying their best to hit something, but overall they’re mostly pounding sand. They may want to live in the 8th century with their favorite prophet, but these headchoppers have mastered the art of fighting guerilla wars in the 21st century.

The good news is that East Ghouta, which was an even bigger tunnel infested Swiss cheese, fell faster then a French army before German panzers, andafter their crushing defeats at Aleppo and Hama Al Nusra has not been able to make a real fist again. A third of the Idlib Headchopper reservation was taken last year in a blitzkrieg offensive, so when the actual offensive to retake Idlib starts there’s not much kitchensink left for Al Nusra to throw at the SAA. They’re just a nuisance that the Syrians and Russians have to suffer because Turkey doesn’t want them to be dealt with. Once Russia and Turkey make a deal so Turkey will withdraw that protection, or once Russia finally decides enough is enough it will be over. Soon.

Well said.

What about drone monitoring and understanding using bunker busting bomb.


Drone monitoring you have to do regardless. Otherwise even your Kalibr can’t find its target. And I reckon a bunker busting bomb is still cheaper then a cruise missile. And is probably even better if it wasn’t because it can carry a bigger explosive charge.

Kalibr’s are high precision weapons against high value hard to hit targets. Against anything else they are gross overkill. Certainly against Jihadi’s who are powerless against any aircraft outside of MANPAD range.


It’s been known since WW2 that aerial bombing has a very low rate of success. It’s only as good as your intelligence and it’s good for destroying infrastructure but only kills people who happen to be at the target. NATO’s air campaign in Bosnia was shown to have been fooled by decoys …… they only got like 20% of the Serbs heavy weapons. The Vietnamese sheltered in tunnels and sewer pipes dug into the ground. In an urban area with tunnels and bunkers you just aren’t going to kill soldiers effectively by bombing them ….. unless you know exactly where they are and choose the right ordinance.

USA does not have weapons testing ground therefore it is making war and entering close door agreements with Russia in Syria for accepting them for joint testing purposes.Russia test on the terrorists USA test on Russia or Russian allies .
