Russian warplanes had neutralized a unit of the US-backed al-Qaryatayn Martyrs Brigade near the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf where the US-led coalition maintains a large garrison, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced on August 5.
In a statement, the ministry said that the warplanes were counducting a routine patrol over a desert area near al-Tanf on August 4 when they located the unit. The warplanes then targeted several caves where the unit’s members were hiding.
“This terrorist group is based in the al-Tanf are, supplied and trained by instructors from the US Army Special Operations Forces … Operating from the desert, the militants of the al-Qaryatayn Martyrs Brigade committed acts of sabotage against the civilian population and civilian infrastructure in Syria,” the statement reads.
The ministry released footage of the pinpoint strikes on the al-Qaryatayn Martyrs Brigade’s hideouts, which were apparently carried out by Ka-52 attack helicopters.
The al-Qaryatayn Martyrs Brigade was formed in 2014 with direct support from the US. Before moving to al-Tanf in 2016, the group was active in the deserts of Damascus and Homs. In 2017, the US-led coalition claimed that it had ceased support for the group. However, the group continued to operate in al-Tanf. Over the next two years, many militants of the group left to opposition-held areas in Syria’s northern region.
This was the second Russian attack on US proxies in al-Tanf in recent months. In June, a series of Russian strikes hit positions of the Revolutionary Commando Army (MaT), the US-led coalition’s main proxy in al-Tanf garrison. The strikes were reportedly a response to an attack by MaT militants that resulted in Russian military casualties. The US-led coalition was alerted ahead of the airstrikes, which caused material losses only.
The US-led coalition maintains a 55 kilometers no-fly zone around al-Tanf garrison. Despite this, Russian warplanes conduct reconnaissance sorties and patrols over the area on a regular basis.
Russia and Syria accused the US-led coalition of sheltering and training terrorists in al-Tanf 55-kilometer zone more than once in the last few months. Terrorists trained there were allegedly sent to Syria’s central region to fight government forces with ISIS cells. There was also claims about some of them being sent to Ukraine to fight against the Russian military that is currently conducting a special operation there.
It seems like Turk-isis-stan with Zion-stan going to invade Syria (try) and The USA/NATO with Kurds free ISIL again.
The fact is, NATO and US are losing so hard against China and Russia… fuking hell just look at their country (EU and US).
If Trump doesn’t win… I’m sure as shit we heading to WWIII – buy gold people.
The poor proxys got bombed and buried deep in their grave caves while the long known sponsors were left unscathed in the air-conditioned barracks.. WTF, I can’t help myself to raise the question of ‘ what on earth did made the Russians hold its punches back against the mastermind mericunts who appear to be enjoying immunity from punitive measures they deserved. Whatever military pact or agreement made long back should be pronounced null and void as retaliatory move by RF who are being targeted by mericunt weapons supplied to AFU. Another viable option to get off the blame and responsibility is to hand over the jets and missiles to SAA to eradicate all of illegal mericunt military structures everywhere in Syria, to replicate what the penta-goon is doing with ukronazis.
When you figure out why Putin won’t slap Israel, you’ll have your answer. As for Al Tanf, that’s part of the game. You must remember that the US is an Israeli proxy. Now go back and ask that same question about Israel. You might even want to ask why Russia just voted YES to renew the weapons sanctions against Yemen…it was so that the UAE would abstain in the vote to condemn Russia for the SMO…or was it? Russia enforcing sanctions on Yemen, while bitching about those on them…while courting the country supporting the terrorists Russia is fighting in Syria (before they get to Russia). I guess it’s true that Russia is concerned about Russia…period. But, then again, as Yemen openly threatens Israel, maybe that has some bearing? Now go back to the first sentence.
If you really think that Tramp will do any different, then you need a mental evaluation. Tell us all, besides the Bidens and their corrupt dealings in Ukraine, what exactly Tramp did to out the situation in Ukr. ZIP, that’s what he did. When did he EVER mention Nazis? When did he EVER mention the Maiden? the labs? the coup which was set up by the Obama WH, who he supposedly hated?? in the 4 years under his admin, the attacks on the Donbass? trying to get the Europeans to up their support of NATO, any mention of NATO’s op in Ukr? Did you also erase the fact that elensky, (Kolomoisky) , Porky…and their cabinets were Zionists? That Adelson, the Israeli gambling magnate, foot the bill for his election? That his first lie was he couldn’t be bought? That he turned the dancing Israelis into dancing Arabs? That Tramp was and is still owned by them? That his best bud was Epstein? His mentor was Roy Cohn, neo-con Mossad? (the same RC that was involved in JFK ass.)That he fully owns the Yemen massacres? That he assassinated Soleimani?…at Israels request and did so in the most underhanded way? attacked Syria under faked CW claims? did everything the ‘deep state’ military asked him to do? actually issued a license to the company stealing Syria oil so it could be ‘legally’ marketed? And you think this worthless speed addicted piece of lying human waste is on our side? I guess it really is no big deal they just let us think voting makes a difference…especially if this is an example of American cognitive ability. It is amazing that there are people that actually still believe that any one of them is any better than another. Every one of them is as much an American patriot as the Federal Reserve is a US gov entity. Is it really any wonder that we are so fucked? Not really.
On spot – thumbs up.
The only good Sunni-Wahhabi is a dead Sunni-Wahhabi. Slava Bashar Hafez al-Assad.
No such thing as a Sunni Wahhabi… just Wahhabi because these c*nts are no more Muslim than the pope.
US only trained them to defend freedom.
FO Jew c*nt
They are the Martyrs Brigade after all. Martyrs for the ignorant, the stupid, and the unhinged.
Perhaps the Russian military has had enough of warning the invaders?
USA is a failed state mocked by Russia and China
