BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their military operations in the western part of the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Wednesday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions in the factory area and provincial cemetery.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Al-Qassem Group” stormed the factories area on Wednesday, liberating several sites from the Islamic State terrorists.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army was able to end the full siege of the Deir Ezzor Airport; however, they still cannot access their supply road due to the Islamic State’s fire control over this road.

Meanwhile, at the Deir Ezzor cemetery, the Syrian Arab Army launched another powerful attack against the Islamic State terrorists, killing and wounding a dozen militants during Wednesday’s assault.

In the coming days, the Syrian Arab Army will face another big attack from the Islamic State forces, so they will have to lift this siege as soon as possible.

Daesh always seem to mostly make good ground when they attack in a short space of time and yet so difficult to remove. How can this be done against a more advanced force and with air defence to boot.

The do not care about their people. Storming with remote controlled soldiers is great. The other way round, if you want to spare your men it is more difficult.

“How can this be done against a more advanced force and with air defence to boot” => As I already pointed : There is a serious lack of CAS (close air support) while in such a conflict, this is what you badly need. gunship choppers and Su-25 are good at it but none can be mid-air refuelled and have pretty short range so they won’t loiter for long, thus, you do a raid, the roaches having spotters or even a stupid weather radar see you coming from afar, everybody takes cover and your raid may blow fixed arms depot or… Read more »

Actually, bombs are not really great for close air support! Even mortar shells! If you want serious anti personal effect with a 120mm 12kg mortar shell, it will be lethal @75m. In urban warfare, most of fight occurre at less than 100m! The only efficient airborne stuff to avoid a blue on blue friendly fire are the 30mm and now having old school rockets like Hydra70, S-5 and S-8 fitted with guidance kits…The 40mm Bofors on the AC-130 can be nice too, well, some missiles like the Griffin… Choppers like Mi-24/35, Mi-28 and Ka-52 can do the job but won’t… Read more »
