In the last few days, minor clashes have regularly occurred on Syrian territory, and the different sides involved in the confrontation have been actively demonstrating the military equipment at their disposal. This week was also marked by damage to terrorist groups such as ISIS and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.
On November 12, heavy clashes broke out between two groups of the Hamzah Division in the Turkish-occupied town of Ras al-Ain in the northern countryside of the northeastern Syrian province of al-Hasakah. One militant was killed, and many others were wounded as a result of the clashes.
On the same day, an advanced RC-135W Rivet Joint reconnaissance aircraft of the Royal Air Force (RAF) was spotted by aviation observers while conducting an unusual mission over the Eastern Mediterranean. The aircraft was most likely spying on Russia’s main bases on the Syrian coast, the Hmeimim Air Base and the Tartus Naval Base.
It was also revealed that a detachment of the Golani infantry brigade of the Israel Defense Forces carried out an operation on the Syrian border with Israel. A house in which there was an ammunition depot and a Hezbollah observation post was destroyed.
In eastern Homs and Hama, ISIS cells in central Syria launched large-scale attacks on pro-government forces. Terrorists used heavy weapons, including mortar shells and rockets, during their attack. Nevertheless, government forces put up strong resistance.
The ISIS attack provoked a fierce response by the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS). Russian warplanes carried out more than 40 airstrikes on ISIS hideouts in central Syria on November 12 alone.
On November 13, at least 13 fighters of a tribal pro-government formation known as “Usud al-Sharqiyah” were killed in an ambush set by ISIS terrorists near the town of al-Masrab in the northwestern Deir Ezzor countryside. Some sources stated that the ambush involved direct shooting by ISIS terrorists, whereas other said that the terrorists targeted the fighters with improvised explosive devices and landmines.
The deadly ambush didn’t go unpunished. On November 14, intense Russian airstrikes targeted ISIS hideouts in Deir Ezzor’s desert. Thus, terrorist cells were demolished by the Russian warplanes twice in two days.
Earlier information about the deployment of Russian S-300/S-400 missile systems near the Tabqa airfield has already surfaced. There were also reports that the Russian military has deployed its state-of-the-art Krasukha-4 electronic warfare system at the Tartus Naval Base on the Syrian coast.
The Krasukha-4 was developed by the KRET corporation to protect command posts, groupings of troops, air defense systems, and vital industrial, administrative, and political facilities.
The system is aimed at analyzing the signal type and impairs enemy radar stations with powerful jamming emissions at ranges of up to 300 kilometers. As a result, enemy aircraft lose their capability to detect targets and aim their precision weapons against them.
The Syrian Arab army is actively using laser-guided artillery rounds against Al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham around the Greater Idlib. Late on November 14, the SAA shelled a police station of HTS in the town of Taftanaz.
Amid the successes of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Arab Army, lack of information about Turkish activity in Syria becomes extremely suspicious.
November 15 marked two weeks of absence of joint patrols there have been no joint patrols of Russian military police forces and Turkish troops in the security zone in northern Syria. The increased focus on Russian activities, especially in relation to the fight against terrorist cells, has become very noticeable.
In the nearest future a surge of military activity in the region should be expected, as all external actors are alarmed by the possibility of excessive strengthening of Russian positions.
