Wasn't here for a lot of hours. Why is it that there was no /sg/?
I mean it is happening time
2nd for 120 sorties
We will see
>The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a massive offensive inside the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Saturday morning, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s frontline defenses at the northwestern districts of Ayyash and Al-Bughayliyah near the western bank of the Euphrates River.
>Initially, the ISIS terrorists were relatively successful during the onset of the offensive in the provincial capital, capturing several neighborhoods and government sites inside the Al-Bughayliyah and Ayyash Districts, including the Ayyash weapons storage depot and the Ayyash fuel station that are both located to the west of the Euphrates Hotel.
>As a result of their initial success, several pro-ISIS and pro-rebel social media activists began to report that the Ayyash and Al-Bughayliyah Districts were captured by the terrorist group, despite conflicting reports from Syrian Arab Army sources inside this city in eastern Syria.
>Under duress from the ISIS assault, the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division called for reinforcements from the elite 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard to help them drive out the terrorists attacking their positions in the northwestern section of the city.
>Not long after their arrival, the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade – alongside the 137th Artillery Brigade and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – beat back the encroaching ISIS terrorists, seizing the Ayyash weapons storage depot and the neighborhoods lost in the Al-Bughayliyah District.
>Sadly, as the Syrian Armed Forces recaptured the neighborhoods they lost to ISIS in the Al-Bughayliyah District, they found over 280 civilians slain by the terrorist group before they fled the scene of this horrific crime.
>The massacred civilians had been reportedly murdered for having “ties to the regime”; meaning, many of these civilians were relatives of an SAA or NDF soldier.
>In addition to repelling ISIS at Ayyash and Al-Bughayliyah, the Syrian Armed Forces also repelled the terrorist group at the 137th Artillery Brigade’s Headquarters in Jabal Al-Thardeh.
>According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Armed Forces lost a total of 49 soldiers during ISIS’ offensive – the source was unable to confirm ISIS’ death toll.
Welp we should let it die then
Yesterday I told you that I was worried about Deir Ezzor :(
I will pray for them
We've probably around the 45 minute mark of this movie now. Can't wait to see how it ends.
Kafranbel retards have lost their CIA translator since the al nursa raid :/
They are still aple to google translate though
Imagine how Assad felt when he heard about those dead ...and those captured into slavery ...
especially when things looked to get better
Must be hard to be Assad
Last sources said 75 SAA dead. At least the offensive was repelled, there is still hope.
About the civilians captured... they will be in incoming isis edgy videos I fear.
I even doubt you could bomb a city like that today even if you wanted. The only way to do that would be using (small) nukes
LMAO, around 2000 pictures of dead rats
>I even doubt you could bomb a city like that today even if you wanted.
That shithole just needs to be leveled. Every YPG or SAA soldier who dies while taking it would be a waste. The only people who still live there are ISIS and their islamist supporters.
Dude ...I wasn't saying I wouldn't like to see that too. I just think it won't be possible.
But if you put a russian artillerybrigade in shooting range ...welp...
Also this >>61245296
Bombs aren't that cheap anymore
When you stop and think about it, though, since Raqqa's going to end up like Dresden anyway (as all the embattled cities invariably do), there's an argument of just skipping the middle and level it like so.
Today bombers can reliably hit their targets with limited collateral casualties so there is no need to dresden something. It is mostly a waste of perfectly good bombs.
Now, on the other hand, artillery bombing them back to the stone age in order to prepare for an assaul is entirely possible, but for that SAA would need to be right at gates of Raqqa.
Were there any happenings in Yemen lately? Are Saudis still getting BTFO or did they git gud?
The OP doesn't post the Yemen updates (understandably) from South Front, but they do it too.
Being mostly unaware of the situation there, though, I found the update videos confusing at times.
>Being mostly unaware of the situation there, though, I found the update videos confusing at times.
Yeah me too. South front videos are well detailed and great but in every video they report on some 20 little factions and groups.
I can barely remember smaller players in this war, so I hoped somebody more knowledgeable about the war could do some quick tl;dr.
My facebook is blowing up saying there's been an ISIS attack with "hundreds dead" in Deir Ezzor.
Anybody here got any thoughts?
It seems stupid to me as a major assault would get fucked up via the air almost immediately.
Yeah, they're killing relatives of people in the SAA.
It's going to bite hard on them, because now the SAA is going to go full gestapo on any they catch.
I think he'll beat ISIS/other rebels militarily and then negotiate a settlement with the SDF.
Wether or not he'll step down after the war remains to be seen. If he runs in elections he'll certainly win but he might choose not to.
The Russians learned with the Chechen terrorists that it is best to kill them all, if possible.
Sometimes, there is a survivor that can be questioned.
It is a better deterrent to terrorism than what we tend to do in the West.
if they called the republican guard, things might be pretty serius. I hope he's fine
I am as pro SAA as most anons here ...but in this case.... The SAA got hit. Hard. The situation is stable for now but nehterless this could be a "See guys! We got one of them!" typ of news.
It's propaganda, meaning could be another.
You remember how often Motorola was killed?
Most non cvcked nations do it. Even Indonesia has a shoot to kill policy unless the faggots surrender immediately (which they often do)
They goad the terrorists into shooting and then waste them. After that pitiful attack in Jakarta expect to hear a few more raids with dead terrorists.
The idea that doing so increases terrorism is SJW bullshit. Dying in a pile of shit without killing any infidels is not as desirable as going to prison for 10 years to radicalize 100 others.
Yes, you are right. But maybe if it's true is the best moment for a counterattack
See, I just don't get why we don't capture a few ISIS cunts, rope them upside-down by the feet, attach electrodes to their balls, and hang them upside-down in liquid sewage.
They'd convert to anything to stop it.
Be perfect propaganda, and they'd turn on one another in a heartbeat.
>The Russians learned with the Chechen terrorists that it is best to kill them all, if possible.
Motorola is in Syria now- maybe he'll show up in Dez.
I remind you that Hohols actually thought he went to Syria
Also I think he's related to this guy.
#SAA launch a counter-offensive in western #DeirEzzor and have secured Al-Baghiliyah & Ayyash town/storage after clashes with #IS militants
during the first chechen all chechens from small to large have been against the russian army, it was a civil war, so we can not say that he was a bandit. In the second war and his father immediately supported the the federal forces.
Very nice, thanks.
Some were clearly tortured before being killed. What a shit way to go. All because of sky fairy.
Because it matters who's Allah is more akbar.
Just fucking nuke them already Russia. That would be an act of mercy really.
I hear that muslims in Kazakhstan and central asia in general tend to be a lot more secular and less jihadi than the ones in the middle east, is that true? or do you guys have a lot of problem with jihadists as well?
I have a choice to be or not to be named, and your flag of choice does not give, you the cock in any case.
It is true, we're as secular as it gets. Sloots wear whatever the fuck they want, dogs are best bros, we enjoy alcohol and pot responsibly, eat pork.
Saudis don't build mosques here. We probably have less of them than Stockholm. Wahhabism isn't compatible with the oldskhool Soviet style dictatorship.
Jihadists might try infiltrating from the South though. Only one country separates us from Afghanistan where ISIS has taken root. And this country is Uzbekistan. So yeah, I'm a bit worried.
If they stopped doing donuts then maybe they can get artillery that wasn't left by the Ottomans.
Fucking kek, only Turk allowed to stay un-removed.
>BREAKING: U.S. and Iran settle long outstanding claim in The Hague, giving Iran access to $400 million trust fund plus $1.3 billion interest

ALLLLLL BBBBAAAAABBBBB AND MANNNJIIIBBB SOOOOOOON
Rubi'uh first though
US airstrike to help rebels advance against ISIS
I don't usually hear about airstrikes to help rebels, this is also right near to SAA territory
Aren't there already contracts for S-400s?
Funny, considering it's the US that gave it to them
>Russia fights ISIS
Russian here, they really don't kek
And I'm not a liberashka either because I fully supported Putin during Ukraine
Russia has 1 goal in Syria with their airstrikes, and that is to get rid of the rebels. This is the whole reason they are there, because Assad was losing and needed depserate backup. ISIS has NOTHING to do with it. The strikes on ISIS are rare and to tell the US to fuck off.
Also they are shit at it too because they are cheap use unguided trash
>they really don't
>ISIS has NOTHING to do with it.
>The strikes on ISIS are rare
This is not reddit where people are only fed with jewish propaganda that claims every airstrike by Russians only kills civilians and "le democratic moderate" sharia terrorists and ISIS are the only bad guys on the ground besides of course le evil Assad and le evil Russians and le evil Hezbolla.
Try shill somewhere else
When Nazarbaev dies it would be a perfect opportune moment for jihadist factions to make a move. He's 75-76 years old already and there are rumors of his health failing.
>What are the chances that his heir will be secular and pro russian in equal measure?
The chances are very high. We would still be Russia's vassal. We're too close geographically, there are too many agreements signed and we're with them in Eurasian economic union as well. We pretty much know who the heir is and he's definitely a secular pro-russian guy. The period of transition of power would also give Putin a chance to secure more profit and influence here.
What I'm worried of is a possibility of terrorist attacks. Nothing major isn't likely to happen I think.
Now other Central Asian countries on the other hand. . Oh boy! They are going to see real combat unfortunately. ISIS can't just simply stop and there are shit loads of gas and oil in the region for the taking. Farther from Russia, less stable governments. Tajikistan would probably be the first.
Joke of the Day:
>US to lift sanctions on Iran's nuclear program
>US imposed sanctions on Iran's missile program
>We have consistently made clear that the United States will vigorously press sanctions against Iranian activities outside of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – including those related to Iran’s support for terrorism, regional destabilization, human rights abuses, and ballistic missile program
>support for terrorism
>human rights abuses
>ballistic missile program
POT KETTLE EVERYTIME
Did someone say
More ork engineering
Apparently whoever uploaded the video claims it was a Russian plane dropping thermobaric bombs. No joke.
Good one Cletus.
Whenever I see this Webm, or gif I can't help but believe it doesn't even work.
The way they cut to the explosion every time makes me think they just launch the shit then run over and set up a bomb, then film that instead.
That is no ork innovation, they stole that from le happy merchant.
Isn't that a Jawa Sandcrawler CTC, from Star Wars IV? Truly, another masterpiece by snackbar engineering
soon, your soldiers will be so fat that each soldier with a weapon will give out personal tankette
>why would you use expensive precision munitions?
Because mass media will be:
"If you don't use smart bombs you use dumb bombs. Like barrelbombs. Do you know who uses barrel bombs? Assad (and Hitler)! Do you want to be like Assad (and Hitler)?"
I don't know ruskybro, getting into that sounds like a lot of work. We'll probably just teleoperate drones from our couches.
Those designs remind me of this baby ...
would be a good idea to build military robots and disputes resolved in epic battles between them. And people alive and the dispute is resolved.
So, /sg/, any info on how the construction of the new Russian base near Palmyra is going? It's being built for a month now, how complete is it?
It'll be a game changer when it becomes operational, I'll tell ya that
As far as I know historical reenactment is pretty big in Italy (wher if I remember correctly the picture is from)
Aaaand another one. Latakia is doomed

What is the music that's used in all of those southfront videos?
>Calling any pre-1950 era tank an MBT
Says on the wiki that Iran typically attaches those to safir jeeps. Probably a kind of module they produce.
Next level militia warfare; you're literally putting out heavy artillery for use on utility vehicles. That's the future of war thanks to technology, industry and the breakdown of order; all that kind of firepower filtering down.
Massacring the ISIS controlled areas is not an option as the civilians will side by the one who controls the area.
I too feel the urge to carpet bomb the terror controlled regions but Assad and allies are supposed to be morally superior and they are.
They need to step up their game, unleash all the soviet stock ammo, more sorties, bomb every Toyota gunner that moves and artillery rape every ISIS pocket that is not yet burning. Every non-SAA military vehicle should be turned into a smoldering metal heaps
Don't forget the oil trucks, turn those thieves into skeletons one by one

that statement just made you a savage
>pic related the real doctrine of peace
>Also Assad is satan
always makes me kek
thanks for reminding me this pic
The fight looks the same to you?
So look for how the peace is different. Asians have no conception of freedom of speech and "moderate" Muslims push non-violently but with implicit threats for the creeping elimination of foundational liberties.
>We haven't carpet bombed anyone in 40 years
Calling it surgical strikes while carpet bombing does not make not-carpet bombing
These actions are bad but the American people are just people man, same with Russia
>Asians have no conception of freedom of speech
>Muh freedom of speech
Hey cut that out Barrel Bombs are real and Assad is satan
There are plenty of stories of people who used to work for the government who are now forced to work for ISIL in keeping up the infrastructure. They didn't import engineers or other specialists, they just took the old ones. Plenty of people in Raqqa want nothing to do with ISIL, they just weren't pansies who ran.
Funny how faggots like you claim Syrians shouldn't have fled but stayed home, then make the case to kill them all alongside ISIL after they did exactly that.
Kek ...is this your summoningword? Something like beetlejuice?

Guys, many terrorist twitter accounts are claiming there is a new ISIS attack on Deir Ezzor. Seeing how over 300 civilians and dozens of soldiers got killed there yesterday, this has got be worried.
It might be an actual big offensive.
Doesn't mean IS has to win it, though. If the SAA actually stands and fights, they can take these losses and come back from it. That's been all IS victories: people surrendering. If the SAA fights this time, IS is only losing people here.
her commentary and appearance is the stuff nightmares are made out of...she's on full psychoactive mode
Technically, since ISIS has declared them "The Caliphate" Muslims can now only go to heaven if they go and join and help ISIS.
So every Muslim in the world should be flocking to Syria/Iraq to join and live there.
This is like is the Pope called for a new Crusade. All Christians should heed the call and flock to the Vatican to join the Pope's army or whatever.
In reality, not all Christians believe in that kind of thing. The same way not all Muslims think the ISIS fundamentalism is right either.
>I spoke to 2 Deir Ezzor activists today. They denied mass executions or kidnappings. ISIS did publicly execute a few (3-4) regime fighters

It's propaganda, meaning could be another. It is known. But netherless ...it is clear now that this raid/offensive was highly succesfull.
The Koran says the Caliphate should feed, clothe and give shelter to it's people.
Theoretically under ISIS, working is optional and you get your basic needs for just being a "proper Muslim".
That bleeding-heart liberal butthurt.
1. napalm is NOT a weapon of mass destruction, and believe it or not, it is an allowed weapon under international treaties for use against military positions and personnel.
2. bombing targets inside a city =/= area bombing. Also, you might want to look up CEP, which might clarify to you and to your butthurt friends the reason not all bombs land exactly on target
3. FAE is not a WMD. it, too, is an allowed weapon for use against military targets and personnel.
4. "chemical and industrial storage areas, air fields, troop encampments, [and] storage sites" are legitimate military targets, and bombing by B-52's of such targets is NOT a war crime
5. if there was indiscriminate bombing of Basra, now that may be a war crime, but you, anon, have no way of telling
6. the "highway of death" - the mention of "affixed white flags to their tanks which were clearly visible to U.S. pilots" is doubtful. It really is. Under combat conditions, especially if flying at night, it would have been near-impossible to see a flag fluttering atop a vehicle.
You literally have nothing except your feelings to offer on that one, as does Paul Walker.
Finally, note that Walker is "the director of the Institute for Peace and International Security at the MIT"- he is nothing more than a "concerned" intellectual.
>You didn't think they were fighting and risking their lives because of >muh caliphate >muh divine jihad
I thought they did it for the pillaging and raping, tbqh.
>"Why do you think Islam has a seemingly endless supply of willing warriors? These are Islams neckbeards, the ones who can't claim women because the rich oil sheiks have four (sometimes even more). They need to rely on women they claim through conquest (allowed under Islamic law https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma_malakat_aymanukum) or die and get 72 virgins."
There's a lot of back and forth there at the moment.
ISIS are making a major push in the area. They hit the place hard, then get repelled, pick a new spot and try again. Casualties are high on both sides.
As typical, their fanboys claim victory before their forces have even reached the gates, so take it with a bucket of salt whenever they say anything.
Battle has already been raging for 48+ hours there. Not sure how much more effort ISIS can throw at them.
A sandstorm will just make things worse in the short term though.
I expect the SAA to lose the armory where most of the action is if that is the case and spend the next few weeks fighting to get it back. Unless they manage to pull off some bullshit flanking moves under the cover of the storm like ISIS have proven to do more than once.
I'd brace for ISIS fanboy cheering and "Assad is defeated" posts anyway.
Nope, seems to be a real thing.
Not sure how it lines up to our definitions of communism or socialism, but the government supplying it's people's needs is a real thing for fundamentalist Muslims I understand.
