Russian Defense Ministry Spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov has provided another battle report on the past week of Russia’s anti-terror operations in Syria
AhlulBayt News Agency - Russian Defense Ministry Spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov has provided another battle report on the past week of Russia’s anti-terror operations in Syria:
“Warplanes of the Russian air group in the Syrian Arab Republic have conducted 444 sorties, hitting 1,593 terrorist targets in the provinces of Deir ez-Zor, Daraa, Homs, Homs, Latakia and Aleppo from February 10 to February 16,”
Of most interest is the following:
‘He added that militants in Aleppo have carried out a mass evacuation of their families to the north of the province toward the Turkish border.’
It is incredibly encouraging to hear week-on-week reports of jihadists fleeing the battlefield, and, as Aleppo is being liberated, the Syrian army is now beginning an advance on the ISIS HQ in Raqqa.
Turkey is now working on re-establishing its arms smuggling route into Syria under the guise of a ‘secure’ area to try and save the terrorists, and Western media is hyping its anti-Russian propaganda to new levels.
Konashenkov had a message for those working with the enemy:
“Once again I remind you that the Russian Armed Forces together with partners launched a multi-level intelligence system that provides reliable data about the activities of terrorists in Syria and some of its neighbors day and night.”
Russia has already seen signs that Turkey is planning an invasion, and Saudi Arabia has publicly stated it will try to remove Assad by force if peace talks fail.
