Syrian War Report – March 27, 2019: Special Forces Hunt Down Terrorists That Killed 3 Russians

3 Russian service members were killed in a terrorist attack in Syria in late February, the Russian Defense Ministry said on March 25. The defense ministry added that following the attack the Russian Aerospace Forces and Special Operations Forces tracked and eliminated a group of 30 terrorists linked to the attack.

The defense ministry provided no details regarding the location of the incident. However, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed earlier that ISIS members had killed several Russians in attacks in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert. Most likely, the terrorist group was referring to this incident.

At the same time, a video of the supposed UAZ vehicle, in which the Russians were moving, when they came under attack is circulating online. It was reportedly filmed in 40km from the town of al-Mayadin.

This incident is further undeniable evidence that despite the formal defeat of ISIS’ self-proclaimed Caliphate in Syria, cells of the terrorist group still pose a threat to local security. So far, the limited security operations of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in desert areas near Palmyra and the Euphrates Valley have not been able to put an end to the terrorist group’s presence in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert.

According to the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance, ISIS terrorist use the US-occupied area of al-Tanf to hide from SAA operations.

Furthermore, the US is still denying any access to the al-Rukban refugee camp located in the area and is in fact preventing evacuation of civilians from the area of the humanitarian crisis.

On March 26, the Turkish Defense Ministry announced that Turkish and Russian forces had conducted a first patrol in the area of Tal Rifat.

“Within the framework of the previous agreement, the Turkish Armed Forces and the Russian Armed Forces carried out the first independent but coordinated patrol in order to achieve ceasefire, provide stability in the Tal Rifat area and prevent attacks on our elements,” the Defense Ministry said in a Twitter post.

The patrols reportedly covered the following areas: Kafr Lusin and Al-Dana in northern Idlib, Atarib in western Aleppo, and Qammari and Al-Eiss in southwestern Aleppo.

In fact, Russia and Turkey have still not launched any really ‘joint’ patrols at the contact line between areas controlled by the so-called ‘opposition’ and the government. Another important point is that these first patrols covered mostly calm areas. Most of the ceasefire violations are taking place in northern Hama and southern Idlib. On the other hand, the Tal Rifat development may become a fist signal indicating that the guarantors of the de-militarized zone agreement are going to undertake practical steps to put an end to the continuing presence of terrorists in the area.

  • IggyBundy

    The Russia SOF are eliminating the wrong vermin.. They should be targetting the ones who supply fund and trains the vermin instead into meeting with unfortunate accidents like slipping on the soap and electrocuting themselves.

    • Gregory Casey

  • Dr. Ronald Cutburth

    FSB is the best.

        • Alex

        • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

          well the ones who ‘surrendered in the last few weeks were not arrested as prisoners of war. And they were even talking about releasing a further 800 prisoners from other countries if western nations dont prosecute them

    • Jens Holm

      Nothing strange in that. They took their Capitol as well as their last stand. Thats where the supporting socalled civilians are.

      Giving them shelter is a relative of the worst and most dirty kind. In the other hand You in the most honorable way show Your low level well.

    i absolutely believe in hunting down these fckn killers and executing em same shit that happened after mosul if they are allowed to escape or even live they will just join up with other groups or start a new one.No i believe all such killers should be hunted down and removed from the equation and in return many good folk will be saved in the future BECAUSE they are dead!!any who hung the heads of their victims on their grills or who kept slaves against their will who used rape theft murder and intimidation MUST BE FCKN EXECUTED ON THE SPOT!!!

    • Thunder

      and even you can’t protect em trump admin from their future judgement!!

      • Jens Holm

        Its not needed to protect Trump. He is like anybody else for the laws og United Stated.

        They also can elect new presidents and do. They resigned Nixon and did Obama twice.

        Your noise make no difference.

        True its hard to see, what we should do with so many people, we have no reason to trust like iSIS.

  • Red Pilled ThoughtCrimes

    God bless Russia

    Wish i could donate SF. have been sharing links to your site for over 3 yrs now, since Russia entered the war. You really should do merch. as once somebody buys a mug or T-shirt with SF logo, that in itself is advertising to anybody who sees it. i would pay 10 usd for a mug or 20 for a T-Shrit. 30 for a hoodie

    • neil barron

      Your’e still smoking ?

    • Jens Holm

      Thats not a bad idea.

  • Ma_Laoshi

    Sorry but what did you expect. The rationale for Russia’s Syria mission was that these jihadists are dangerous are therefore must be, if not exterminated, then at a minimum made to surrender and disarmed. For most of the past ~8 months however, the loyalist effort towards this goal has been minimal. Instead Russia continues to play games (“long games” or not) with Turkey and Israel. Then the jihadist threat will say thank you very much, and it’s your soldiers on the ground who’ll pay the price.

    Wonderful Russia-Turkey agreement for terrorists and Turkey. Russia must stop pleasing Turkey and help SAA to lunch and offensive on Idlib.
