The cooperation between the Damascus government and Russia appears to be airtight, as both constantly find new ways to work together.

This includes operations against ISIS in the central region, as well as against the so-called “moderate opposition” in the country’s northern areas.

On July 1, 50 cadets of Syria’s Kuweires Military Aviation Institute, which reopened in 2018 after remaining closed for years due to the war, completed training with help from Russian instructors.

The Russian Ministry of Defense shared footage of Syria’s new pilots flying on L-39 Albatros high-performance fighter jet trainers.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) has been using this type of warplane in close air support and in ground attack missions since 2012.

Over the last two years, Russia stepped up its support to the SyAAF.

In 2020, Syria received a new batch of Mig-29 fighter jets.

In 2021, several Ka-226T military helicopters were supplied.

The SyAAF also begin overhauling its aging Su-22M4 fighter bombers with parts provided by Russia.

This plays a large role in the fight against ISIS and other militants throughout the Arab Republic.

In addition to training, the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) carries out frequent air raids on ISIS positions in Syria’s central regions.

At least 23 ISIS terrorists were killed and 31 others were wounded in June as a result of Russian airstrikes, according to reports from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

As summer rolls in, the Russian Navy and VKS began organizing various military drills in the Mediterranean.

On June 25th, they held an exercise with the focus being on fighting a notional enemy’s aircraft, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as hunting for submarines.

It ran through to July 1st.

In addition, in full support of the Damascus government, Moscow is sparing no effort in trying to curb how much assistance the “moderate opposition” in Greater Idlib receives.

On June 1st, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya has affirmed that Russia did not agree with transferring humanitarian aid to Syria across borders.

According to him, the deliveries constituted a violation of the rules of providing humanitarian aid and was in breach of international law.

After all, Damascus and Moscow are fighting against Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham in Greater Idlib, as well as the other militant groups in the region, and they would not let most of the humanitarian aid to fall in to militants’ hands to simply assist them in bolstering their ranks.

Recent joint operations by the Syrian Arab Army and its Russian support have been largely successful, with more large-scale efforts being constantly expected for the following months.

The Russians are correct. Any and all aid shipments should go through Damascus to avoid “accidental” support of foreign backed terrorist groups.

The Ka-226T appears to be an interesting design with various configuration capabilities to maximize versatility.

The multi-faceted blocking by the Russians of the Jews’ taking of Syria for the Jews’ “Greater Israel.” The human misery the Jews count as profit aside, it’s satisfying to watch the Jews stymied in their quest.

I bet the Russians have stockpiles of military equipment and parts in storage from the Soviet era. I imagine that is what they are drawing upon to help get those old SU-22’s in fighting shape again. Must bet quite a task. Much of the SAA’s equipment fell into disuse and disrepair due to years of neglect. Also nice to see the Russians are training new pilots, so that the SyAAF can get back on its feet again.

The soviet era weapons were all dropped on Chechnya. All the dumb bombs that replaced the soviet era were used on the FSA. It is a blessing that Putin is our dear leader in this war of thieves and bandits.


You would be correct. The Soviets signed an agreement decades ago to not build more than 15000 (!) MBTs, T-72s. Apparently many spent decades in deep storage awaiting assembly.

The exact details escape me but the information can easily be researched.

We have Ace of Spades, and you don’t.

The only reason why Russian support came to Syria was because Salafist Brother in Religion Baghdadi played a double game, he took the rank and file support away from al-Nusra, carried out atrocities that made the US look really bad, thereby sending an invitation to Putin back in 2014, which Putin accepted and fired missiles from the Caspian Sea.

Salafist Brother Baghdadi was betrayed by defectors and the leadership of ISIS reverted back to the US and HTS, although turf wars still continue a bit, but many Islamic Brothers and Sisters are unaware of this tragic history and the fact that Brother Baghdadi was a double agent.

Brither Baghdadi has turned up in Heaven and i got my information, which l always reported on South Front to be the case, straight form the horse’s mouth, so to speak metaphorically.

What will become of world peace without Russia ??? God bless Putin!! 💪🙏

Ecclesiasticus Of The Wisdom Of Jesus Son Of Sirach Chapter 10 1 A wise ruler instructs his people, and gives them sound and orderly government. 2 Like ruler, like ministers; like governor, like subjects. 3 A king lacking instruction is his peoples ruin, but sound judgement in a prince upholds a city. The exercise of wisdom 4 The government of the world is in the hand of the Lord, At the right time he will find the right man to rule it. 5 In the Lord’s hand is all human success; It is he who confers honour to the legislator. 6 Do not be angry with your neighbour in every offence, and do not resort to acts of insolence. 7 Arrogance is hateful in the sight of God and man, An injustice is offensive to both. 8 Because of injustice, insolence and greed. empire passes from nation to nation. 9 What has a mortal to be proud of? he is only dust and ashes, subject even in life to bodily decay. 10 A long illness mocks the doctor’s skill; today’s king is tomorrow’s corpse. 11 When anyone dies, he comes into an inheritance of maggots and vermin and worms. 12 The beginning of pride is to forsake the Lord, when the human heart revolts against its Maker. 13 as its beginning is sin, so persistence in it brings on a deluge of depravity. Therefore the Lord inflicts signal punishments on the proud and brings them to utter disaster. 14 The Lord overturns the thrones of princes and installs the meek in their place. 15 The Lord uproots nations , and plants the humble in their place. 16 The Lord lays waste the territory of nations, destroying them to the very foundations of the earth. 17 Some he shrivels away to nothing, so that all memory of them vanishes from the earth. 18 Pride was not the Creator’s design for man, nor violent anger for those born of woman. 19 What Creature is worthy of honour? Man. What men? Those who fear the Lord. What creature is worthy of contempt? Man What men? Those who break the commandments. 20 A members of the family is honour their head; the Lord honours those who fear him. 21 God has abolished the memory of the proud, and has preserved the memory of them that are humble in mind. 22 The convert, the stranger, and, the poor- , their pride is in the fear of the Lord. 23 It is not right to despise a poor man, whose judgement is sound, and it is wrong to honour a rich man who is a sinner. 24 The mighty, the judge and the prince win high renown, but none is as great as he who fears the Lord. 25 When a wise servant on by free men, The sensible person will not protest. 26 Do not be too clever to do a day’s work, Or give yourself airs when you have nothing to live on. 27 It is better work and have more than enough than to be full of conceit on an empty stomach. 28 My son, be modest, but keep your self-respec and value yourself at your true worth. 29 Who will speak up for anyone who is his own enemy, or respect someone who disparages himself? 30 The poor may be honoured for good sense, the rich for wealth. 31 If someone is honoured in poverty, how much more in wealth! If he is dishonoured in wealth, how much more in poverty!


Funny they call themselves ISIS, they don’t even know they work for a Satanic death and greed cult run by women like Hillary Clinton
