The Syrian army, Hezbollah and Liwaa Al-Quds, supported by Russian warplanes, launched an attack on Jaish al-Fatah militants in the Old Ramouseh Neighborhood of Aleppo city. Following an intense firefight, the pro-government forces took control of the Ramouseh Bakery. If the Old Ramouseh Neighborhood is secured, the Sheikh Sa’eed Neighborhood will become the next target of the loyalists.

Russian heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser “Admiral Kuznetsov” will be deployed in the composition of a group of Russian ships in the eastern Mediterranean, Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting of the military department on September 21. Currently, the Russian naval group in the area includes not less than six warships and three or four support vessels. The group’s capabilities will be increased with a carrier strike group led by Admiral Kuznetsov.

The Russian Defense Ministry also plans to test new weapons in Syria. Admiral Kuznetsov ‘s air grouping is going to use Kh-38 missiles and a new guidance system SVP-24 for unguided bombs in a combat situation. It’s reported that the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy aircraft cruiser will carry the Su-33 and the MiG-29K/KUB fighter jets, as well as with the Ka-52K Katran helicopters on its board.

Reports have been appearing in various pro-government media outlets since September 20 that some Russian warships, deployed in Syria’s coastal waters, hit with missiles a foreign-led military operations room near Aleppo city, killing 30 Israeli, US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers.

The military operations room was allegedly located in the western part of Aleppo province in the middle of Sam’an mountain. It was set up by foreign intelligence services in order to coordinate operations of various militant group against the Syrian government forces in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.

Most of the pro-government media outlets cites the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency as a main source of the information. AlMasdarNews and the Iranian Fars News Agency are among the sources that had disseminated the info.

While there are no doubts that various ‘opposition’ and terrorist groups in Syria are trained, supplied and managed by foreign intelligence services, the pro-government sources have not provided video or photo evidences in order to confirm this report. The Russian Ministry of Defense has not commented on the issue.

    I hope that that news is correct, THOSE Israelis/U.S/TURKEY/QATAR/SAUDI ARABIA/ENGLAND/NATO, TERRORISTS PROMOTERS, TRAINING, ARMING, DIRECTING AND FINANCING, deserve to be wipe out of the map.

    It has begun. The free world must unite to wipe out the barbaric, American-led NATO coalition from the face of Earth. We shall prevail!

    The article indicates the Mig 29 can defeat Nato aircraft
    The Mig 29s in this article are older Mig 29s which went to Poland after.
    RAC Mig Corporation has several upgrade programs for export Mig 29s.
    Mig has increased Mig 29 fuel capacity…upgraded engines….avionics.
    Upgraded Gen Migs with newer missile…radar. .and targeting bring a numeric
    Of combat aircraft which Nato pilots should respect.
    The Mig 29s flown by Iraq were …well…badly run contacts which was like walking into punches.

    Syria’s Mig 29s have rails and targeting for stand off anti ship missiles…along with
    Several other load out sets.

    Syria could. ..if properly drilled and planning….get into Israeli airspace and clobber targets. ..
    Even Iron Dome.
    Ships off Syria could get laced like an Exocet ripping into a Royal Navy Warship off
    Falklands

    The west military media side marginalize Russian military technology and upgrades.

    Proof is in the most recent revealing of tech prowess : )

  • A bunch of Zionist-Jews, Mi6-terrorist, and CIA-devil-worshipers wiped out. The world is a better place today because of this victory of Christian-Russia on behalf of God’s creation.
    However, their are many more Mossad agents and Mi6-terrorist to be dealt with. The CIA must also be dismantled from within democratically by the American people, and it’s leaders placed on trial.

    Reads like disinformation but who cares? The plan now should be to set up a brand new military operations room – a “joint coordination center” with the Russians to fight ISIS. That’s priority one.

    We said we were sorry about the air-strike on the Syrian military base in Deir el-Zour and we meant it. No hard feelings on either side I hope.

    US Conveys ‘Regret’ for anti-ISIS Strike that Killed Syrian Forces
    http://www.military.com/daily-news/2016/09/18/us-conveys-regret-for-strike-that-killed-syrian-forces.html

    It’s time to move this war onto a new footing and let the West and Russia together finish with ISIS once and for all.

    I welcome the Russian carrier group arriving in the Mediterranean, in preparation I suppose, for the Russian air assault to re-take the heights commanding Deir el-Zour? If so, again, good luck with that.
