Russian Military Base Captured by ISIS Terrorists in Palmyra (Photo & Video)

The Amaq news agency of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group has published a video, showing a field-type home station of Russian military in Palmyra. The footage shows trophies of terrorists – a large number of arms (mounted heavy machine guns, the Kalashnikov guns of various types, rocket anti-tank launchers, ammunition, and military hardware). The abandoned things indicate that the cantonment was left in a rush in a fight (we can see damaged equipment).

The cantonment of Russian military was located in the west of Palmyra, next to the former racecourse and the Jebel Kasyun mountain (we can see the Muslim Castle Qala’at ibn Maan on the video). A fierce battle lasted for two hours in the area of the mountain and racecourse. However, the position was not held, Russian military retreated, following fleeing Syrians.

For unknown reasons, the Russian command has not destroyed of weapons and ammunition, captured by terrorists, from the air.

    The weapons shown are hardly current Russian standard issue. Most are old model Ak47’s , Akm’s , Dshk HMG’s etc. Most look new though, implying that they came from Soviet stocks held in Russia. Possibly they had already been handed over to the Syrians for the creation of a local militia in that area. The Russians present were most likely advisers and engineers. The Dshk’s , Zu23 and the S60 57mm will most likely be used by Isis to arm new technicals. The explosives will go into more IED’s and VBIED’s. Time for somebody to fire several BM21 salvoes into that base.

      i was thinking the same only the kurds heavy machine gun looks like russian use and eventhat inst full comfirmed

    Clever, get them all bunched up and comfortable, then send a missile to help them on their way to those ‘virgins’. The ammunition left behind will help in the destruction.

      Why do I have the feeling that there is something fishy about this “news” coming from the terrorists? Blasting up their image to safe face after Aleppo?

  • Random guy

    Russians have only spec-ops on ground in Syria. They don’t use old AK47.

    • zlop

      Then, who pulled out, retreated and abandoned the base?

      • Random guy

        Spec-ops of any country in general is never used for sit and wait defense. They go in, complete the mission, relocate, go to the next mission.

          More fake news. ISIS is not going anywhere. Iraq will belong to ISIS after US go home. 911 was designed from Iran to get rid of Saddam. Do anyone knows where ISIS leader is hiding?

          • Random guy

            911 is Afganistan. Iraq is WMD.

  • Derapage

    Maybe there’s a corrupt general in NDF.
    Palmyra is so far from Damascus.

    • Brad Isherwood

      Maybe…..this nonsense occured in Iraq over and over.
      The Shia militias had cellphone coverage of US and British helicopters and aircraft flying into ISIS locations. ..
      The Takfiri up at Mosul got loaded Banks + ammo and mechanized brigade left to them.

  • AMHants

    Wasn’t Soros advertising for assistance in transporting this equipment to Syria, providing the carrier a list of what the cargo would hold?

  • Aung Naing

    LOL.ISIS pigs got junks and they expect to survive for one or two months.

    As the Syrians commit to Palmyra, we have our first hints strategy against a Deir Ez-zor.. Source

    “TEHRAN (FNA)- Security forces in Syria’s Hasaka province disclosed that Washington has trained and prepared the militants affiliated to former president of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) Ahmad al-Jarba to attack the Northern part of Deir Ezzur province.
    “The elite militants of al-Qad group who are under the command of al-Jabra have mobilized and trained a large number of tribal fighters along the Syria-Iraq borders in the Northeastern part of Hasaka province and relocated them to the Southwestern part of Hasaka province to prepare for attacks (on government forces) in Deir Ezzur province,” security sources told FNA in Damascus.”

    To bad Syria not have delayed bomb timer hidden well…
    Or even remote activate. ..
    Decimate lots of inquisitive Takfiri pillaging the left overs.

  • Brad Isherwood

    Movie quote ( Firefox) …abridged.

    CHAIRMAN ANDROPOV……THE SECURITY FOR PALMYRA…..WAS…UNFORGIVABLE.!

    Lots of images over on Ziad/Syria Perspective website of near acres of weapons/Ammo
    Left by/captured …from Takfiri in Syria.
    Will ISIS/ISIL stick around Palmyra and fight to keep,…or pull out with the loot?.
    US can use this as a foot in the door/seat at the table. …saying.

    ” You’ve not yet defeated ISIS. …look at Palmyra and Raqqa “.
    US have excuse to stay on/stay in Syria…
    What mischief comes next?…
    What will deep state try to get away with in Trump first 100 days?

    ISIS destroyed Iraqis base in Mosul but I doubt it would make US news. US cannot win if fighting from behind Iraqis. There are more Iraqis troop death than reported. Many news about Mosul battle are fake. Just like the news said Hillary would win. 911 was designed to get rid of Saddam in favor of Iran.
