SDF Comes Under Mortar And Rocket Shelling Following Russian Airstrikes North Of Deir Ezzor - Kurdish Media

Click to see the full-size map

Following initial claims that Russian airstrikes hit the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near Deir Ezzor on Monday, pro-SDF media outlets started spreading reports that government forces were shelling the SDF in the area with mortars and rockets (most ikely BM-21 Grad multiple rocket launchers).

According to a hard-core pro-Kurdish/US media outlet, Hawarnews, the mortar and rocket shelling started after alleged Russian airstrikes on SDF positions near the Koniku gas factory north of Deir Ezzor city.

The SDF seized the area on September 23 while ISIS was fiercely attacking the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies on the east bank of the Euphrates. It’s interseting to note that ISIS prefers to combat the SAA and just ignores a large part of the SDF advances in Deir Ezzor province.

If the reports about the Russian airstrikes and Syrian shelling are true, this is a clear signal that the Syrian-Iranian-Russian coalition is not going to ignore hostile actions of the US-led coalition and its allies against its forces in the province.

Earlier in September, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that a major part of ISIS attacks and shelling against government forces come from the area allegedly held by the SDF.

On Sunday, the ministry revealed photos showing the US Special Operations Forces safely operating in the ISIS-held area north of Deir Ezzor. At the same day, alleged ISIS shelling killed Russian Lieutenant General Valery Asapov near Deir Ezzor city. According to reports, Asapov was a commander of Russian task forces in Deir Ezzor and Raqqah provinces.

time to send back to hell the PKK-SDF terrorist forces


And US army too. Time to unleash a ‘Vietnam’ for them.


The SDF is an invading occupying force. The Syrians and allies have every right to repel them from the country – by any means necessary..


Finally kill all those Zionists US-Israeli bitches. Good job Russia, you can freely bomb all of them.

how does it feel illegitimate yankee led coalition when the real ones come after their lies before?

MD Ranix

the u.s. led coalition end is real now … good riddance to the scumbags on earth

Trustin Judeau

I hope this is true . For some time I advocated for air attacks on SDF targets following Tabqa attack by US led anti Syrian coalition


Sooner or later Russia must confront US brinkmanship or go under; is now the time?


I think it is.

Solomon Krupacek

wiil never happen

Igor Dano

Previously isis fought as a proxy, the jewish war. Now they are dressed as SDF and fight as a proxy , the jewish war. uS are only dumb asses bankrolling it for jews.


There’s nothing Jewish about the zionist, antisemite occupation of Palestine you doltish provocateur.


eh run of the mill racist with nothing better to think about

SDF has to pay price for being american proxy. As I wrote many time before, americans can’t be trusted. This is a nation with culture and history of betrayal and backstabbing or use nations as proxy for their own agenda


US will respond, SDF will respond.

US is likely either, or both, to supply SDF with aircover and or supply SDF with truckloads of manpads. As those are primarily defensive weapons, they fall within the purview of Centcom to supply to SDF without referring to either Pentagon of Trump.

SDF will fire in selfdefense. Russia’s choice to attack or not. The consequences of Russias decision are on the responsability of Russia.

Russia and SAA are, as stated earlier by me, in total panic over the successess of SDF, successess the SAA is unable to match. (assadophyles will undoubtedly say this is the fault of SDF, IS, US and everybody except for lousy fighting capabilities of badly trained NDF fighters.)

To speak with the words orf Erdogan, Russia has to know its place. Assad has no place other then given to him by Russia and Iran.


Manpads are useless against the current protection :)


In case of close airsupport, manpads are very capable. To high flying bombers, accord. Present bombings were close air support and rather ineffective.

But think. In case Russia bombing SDF forces while formally there on Assads behalf, do not think this will make SDF give on inch to Assad, bombing his own – as he claims – beloved subjects.

Meanwhile, even if effective, SDF has already another route to the Omar fields by reaching (as they did) the Khabur river at Al Suhwar, from whre there are two perfect road going south towards the Omar (and other) oilfields while SDF will be takeing the largest agricultural complex of Syria, 1.6 million hectares of irrigated lands.


No they are not effective against the new gen protection even at close range, SDF have betrayed Assad and now are just another proxy of US, illegitimate group of land grabbers. If they choose to be “independent” at the referendum today, they ill have many problems with their neighbours, it will be just another half arsed failed state and US won’t save them.

I’ve heard manpads are very effective against kalibr missiles. Lets face it, SDF is a toast.

Dutchnational, just wait and see what happens. Don’t expect jerky moves (that’s the path of your zio masters), but watch for final result. “Russia has to know it’s place”(c) says who? Someone hiding behind computer screen?


You take dutchnational too seriously..This guy is an ISIS sympathizing comedian..


He could be Dutch, I am also Dutch and most people in the Netherlands dont know what is really going on in syria. He doesnt know and just believes what the Dutch government says. I used to be a idiot like him too over 30 years ago when they told us that al qaida and Taliban were freedom fighters.


Dutchie not working today….the syphilis has not gone away…so she has ample free time to spout hot air from her jhouish rectum…..


He’s kike Jew

Solomon Krupacek

4 tons of VX on SDF!

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

This is rich coming from a Barzaniophile , Ocalanophile,ISISophile and dutchhomicidalophile.

Herbrecht Von Jeromen

ISIS gets the rockets, SDF makes the complaint. It’s far too simple.


Logical explanation…. They are both the same!!!!


Could be fake kurdish news in order to motivate kurds vote for an independent kurdistan.


It seems to be a lethal clash between SAA/Rusia forces and SDF/US SOF units in Dajr Az Zaur region…Rusians lost patience after last ISIS (???) mortal attck on SAA/Rusians HQ…


Good article on Moon of Aabama people may like to even comment on http://www.moonofalabama.org/ Syria – U.S. CentCom Declares War On Russia They are claiming three high ranking Russian officers were killed.

Doctor Who?

An interesting article from the Saker. Apparently the American Deep State has decided to directly confront Russia in Syria. http://thesaker.is/very-dangerous-escalation-in-syria/

And from Paul Craig Roberts. https://www.globalresearch.ca/washington-has-initiated-military-conflict-with-russia/5610654


Superb – already passed them on – as you will see if you look down my list. Thanks a lot.

Doctor Who?

The American media is focused on Trump’s fight with the football players and little matters like World War 3 starting in Syria don’t merit much attention in America. Trump’s main purpose appears to be diverting people’s attention from real news stories.


Russia to set up a military base in Deir Ezzor http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13960702001308


Great idea! Russia MUST fo this as quickly as possible. Then more forces resources can be brought in quickly including S-400 batteries to make sure the jhouish americunt forces can’t bring in anymore support or airlift their ISIS colleagues out!!

Sham Crown

Its time for sdf & isis be partner to chase out SAA, Iranian & Russian brutal occupation


You sound like an emotional 15 year old on her period..Get the F outta here


Good afternoon idiot in tel Aviv,the terrorists capital of the world. Not sniffing your rock today?

Terra Cotta Woolpuller

Wow , did you climb out from under your rock those two have been working hand in hand all along, they are attacking and killing the Arab citizens of Raqqa. The Arabs you get genocided by these PKK/YPG terrorist group also masquerading as ISIS along with US/Coalition military. Time for these foreign invading infidels and PMC/ISIS to leave feet first or on their backs.

Langaniso Mhlobo

USA order ISIS not to fight SDF but Syrians and Russians. The aim is to let ISIS occupy lots of oil and gas field’s for Kurdistan settlement.There is no difference between SDF and ISIS.All the area were ISIS is encircle are quickly handed over to SDF that’s the USA tactic and this causes many SAA and Russian death.


Wonder if that is the area the fire came from that killed the Russian General .


Ronald, the same thought came to my mind immediately after reading about it. I’m almost 99%.sure that these americunt jhouish enslaved sf has a direct hand in the targeting of the Russian soldier. Time for Russia to declare an area of operational control to the US and give them 4 hours off safe passage…then start lethal action against all the enemy in the area!!!


KURDS COMMITTED GENOCIDE AGAINST ARMENIAN CHRISTIANS! OVER 1.5 MILLION MURDERED! They tried to steal their land! Israel commits genocide against Palestinians and stole their land! “birds of a feather flock together”!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurdish_recognition_of_the_Armenian_genocide https://www.pri.org/stories/kurds-turkey-atone-their-role-armenian-genocide http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/04/24/kurds-acknowledge-the-armenian-genocide-and-their-role-in-it/


And now look what is happening. These same Kurds are trying to take control of Deir Ez-Zor City, where there is a large concentration of Armenians. Look at this map I have attached below. Look at the pink area. Those are Armenians. Deir Ez Zor has a lot of Armenians, and Kurds don’t like them. I wonder if the Kurds have allowed the Armenian residents to participate in their fake civilian governing council that they just set up in the new area they control. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/37e1b0e83facf21ce7940fab8f098fe3ecac4b30e26bd88f2dd8f076647d9de7.jpg …


Nothing has changed! Nice post bro!

DJ Double D

The Americans are on course to capture all the oil fields. Syrians will never allow this to happen. This war will go on as long as it will take and the Kurds have lost it all – no statehood whatsoever.


“It’s interseting to note that ISIS prefers to combat the SAA and just ignores a large part of the SDF advances in Deir Ezzor province.” No force has done more to combat Daesh than the YPG/YPJ/SDF. And this kind of slimey insinuating talk is unworthy of accurate and responsible journalism.

Tudor Miron

You should try and look for less knowledgeable audience before stating such an obvious lie – “No force has done more to combat Daesh than the YPG/YPJ/SDF.” (c) At this point SDF is nothing also than zio slaves/proxi and anti Surian force. Don’t think that you can fulfill your wishes at expence of others. All you manage to do (in the long run) is create even more enemies.

Solomon Krupacek

of yourse. logically shoose the weaker enemy :)


Hi pinky…how’s the weather today in the terrorists capital tel Aviv? See that you still not back to work in the whore house. Is the syphilis still not going away?


BS from SDF once again! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4ab9dd8d174f26b3b8dd58c0adaeb210c51b17ee57e14536500649561f60057e.png
