Syrian army advances on militants of the Islamic state (the Arabic name DAISH, the organization banned in Russia) in the area of the cemetery at the air base in Deir ez-Zor. Terrorists attacking from the rear, government troops, supported by aircraft, were able to take control of several key hills that make up the strategic heights.
Federal news Agency sent to the editor of the video, which reflects the progress of the operation against ISIS. Soldiers of Assad's army is moving in the direction of the military airfield.
With the support of FSI Russian government forces stormed the area since the beginning of the week, but released major after the battle with terrorists near the bus station. More than half of the large cemetery is in the hands of government forces. To remove the blockade of the air base in Deir ez-Zor, they have to overcome only a few hundred meters.
Its height allow the Syrian army to establish control over the areas, which are located nearby.
Now the challenge is not only to lift the blockade, but also to gain a foothold on the hills to repel a possible counterattack by militants. That they will, no doubt.
the Syrian army command has sent a few units of the Republican guard. In the near future, recruits will join the force in the region to government forces. At the same time, the Syrian air force is ready to continue to strike at the rear of the rebels, not allowing them to conduct operations to regroup.
Yesterday I wrote about how thanks to technology transferred by Russia, the Syrian air force was able to conduct unique operation to transport elite troops in Deir ez-Zor, which is still besieged by the militants..
