BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – The Russian military played a key role in liberating the 20+ civilians that were held hostage by the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in southeastern Syria.

Speaking to Al-Masdar News on Saturday, a Syrian Army source said that the Russian forces helped locate the hostages using their military technology.

The source said that the Russian military provided this information to the Syrian Arab Army and planned out their operation that led to the liberation of these kidnapped civilians.

The Russian military was also present during the operation and later provided necessary aid to the freed civilians.

In addition to aiding in the liberation of the hostages, the Russian military is also playing an integral role in the Syrian Arab Army’s ongoing operation to eliminate the last Daesh terrorists in the Al-Safa region of Al-Sweida.

According to a source in Damascus, the Russian military sent their Special Forces to the Al-Safa front this past week; they are now embedded with the Syrian Arab Army near the front-lines.

Following on from the Iranian Quds forces, all good instruction from the Russians is useful for the SAA in future combat

This was to be expected. But as long as the Syrian army keeps learning from our officers, it will soon become a real force in the region and will be able to deal with any enemy without our help.
