Military correspondents embedded with Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Qalamoun Shield Brigade published a new video footage showing soldiers of the brigade engaged in heavy firefights with militants of the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” (ISIS) in the surroundings of T-4 Military Airport in the eastern part of Homs province. Government forces are supported by Russian attack helicopters and Syrian fighter jets. Video taken two days ago can be seen below:

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, government forces foiled another attack by the aforementioned terror group in Abou Kalleh Dam area which is located approximately 20 kilometers southeast of T-4 Airbase.

According to a military source at T-4 Military Airport, Syrian Armed Forces were able to destroy at least 2 enemy’s technical vehicles, while also killing no less than 10 ISIS terrorists in the process.

Gosh, snow in the Syrian desert! Where is global warming?
Nevertheless, SAA should better distribute the Dragunovs or even higher calibers, i.e. .300winch-mag, 300ultra-mag, .338Lapua, .408CheyTac and equip them with AK-74U for close/mid range defence : assault-rifles and RPK are nearly useless in such large open areas. Better use snipers or marksman riffle… Too much spray’n’pray.

NSV or KORD are way better, but again it… Read more »
