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

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.

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

  • 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

    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

  • dutchnational

    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.

    • Alex

      Manpads are useless against the current protection :)

      • dutchnational

        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.

        • Alex

          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.

        • Melotte 22

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

    • Tudor Miron

      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..

        • Remco

          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.

  • Herbrecht Von Jeromen

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

    • Dicksonrp

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

  • Alex

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

  • alexis

    • Dicksonrp

      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

      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.

  • Ronald

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

    • Dicksonrp

      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!

      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.

        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.

  • Pinkville

    “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 :)

    • Dicksonrp

      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?
