Russian combat planes in Syria have destroyed over 650 targets of various terrorist groups in Syria during this past week, according to the report by the Defense Ministry of Russia, published in the official media outlet of the Defense Ministry Krasnaya Zvezda (Red Star). The targets were destroyed during more that 360 sorties that took place over the period.

Russia’s Minister of Defense Sergey Shoygu also reminded on October 27 that Russian Navy fleet based in the eastern Mediterranean Sea is providing active support to the Syrian Arab Army.

The Russian sappers have demined nearly 1000 objects in Deir ez-Zor, Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in the Syrian Arab Republic reported on October 26.

“In the past 24 hours, 33 hectares of the territory of the city and its suburbs, six kilometers of roads, and 35 buildings were demined, 963 explosives were discovered and destroyed,” the statement said.

A total of 741 hectares of territory, 183 kilometers of roads, and about 1,500 buildings, including schools, power plants and a hospital, have been inspected. Since the start of the Russian demining operation in Deir ez-Zor, 37,517 explosive items have been found and destroyed.

The Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria continues working with the local authorities to help the refugees return to their homes, TASS reported.

“In the past 24 hours, 293 people have returned to their homes. 220 people returned to their homes in Aleppo, 52 in Rif Dimashq and 21 in Homs province,” the center stated.

    more will come – till the last zio satanic terrorist is eliminated permanently

    • You can call me Al

      Well at least until the Israelis wake up and get rid of the neocon war mongers – pretty much the same as the Yanks and half of the Europeans.

      But, it does look that way (your way).

  • χρηστος

    the same amount of targets were hit by the Us led coalition…..in 1 year!

    • Solomon Krupacek

      see you? and despite your theory sdf advances faster. this is a´la sun-tse; winning without bombing ;)

      • χρηστος

        you know the answer….sdf doesnt advance….isis becomes sdf by changing uniforms….you save a lot on fuel that way as well…..sdf cares for the environment

        • Solomon Krupacek

          this is also way of war, boy. assad made also several type. and why not advance? when nazis retreated, the red army did not advance?

          • goingbrokes

            Solomon, you are playing with words. If SDF and Daesh are on the same side (and only appear to oppose each other) then THERE IS NO ADVANCE! There is only scaling down of the deception. This also means that SAA is the ONLY side making any advance!
            The only advance the US supported side is making is the advancing of the plan for the Kurds to dominate the currently Daesh occupied areas. As SAA/Russia/Hezbollah etc. are diminishing Daesh held areas the Grand Plan is crumbling, slowly but surely.
            So, to put it plainly, if we colour the map with Daesh and SDF held areas in the same colour, we will see that THEY have steadily been losing and only pro-Government forces have been advancing.

          • χρηστος

            be patient…..SYria will be terrorist free in a while….

          • Kira Binkley

            And in a way that you could never imagine.

    we dont the effect. al bukamal, ghouta, daraa, homs pocket … no changes.

    • χρηστος

      check the ma first….how it was 2 years ago and check now…..those pockets as you say are very difficult to clear indeed, but there are agreements for cease fire as well so it doesnt really count.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i wrote about this weekend … 650 destroyed targets and nowhere advance on my list.

        • VGA

          Well they advanced in northern Hama and in DeZ.

        • Gregory Louis

          And they took the T2 pumping station

        • χρηστος

          ιn modern battlefields first comes the airforce with presicion strikes ,then with strikes at secondary targets, then comes the artillery and finally the troops exploit the situation created.

  • Kennethllindsy

    Whoa. That’s like 100 strikes a day. If they keep that up there won’t be a single hospital, school, day care center, Mosque, grocery store or laundromat left for rebels to go to.
    Whatever you may think about Russia Carpet Bombing Villages to pieces, it is effective.

    • Barba_Papa

      Dude, that plane in the pic carries 4 bombs and has empty hard points. That is not NOT carpet bombing. For that you need a lot more aircraft and full load outs.

      • Kennethllindsy

        Barba you are forgetting that internal bay of SU 25 carries 4 bombs. So that’s 8 per plane even if only 2 bombs on each wing.
        Probably flying in Pairs for Safety..

  • gustavo

    It looks like that this is not enough to finish with terrorists. If it is possible to double or triple this number that would be better.

  • Kira Binkley

    Right.
