New losses in Syria: Under the Turkish fire could have been killed by the Russians
Foreign media spread information about the death of the Russian military in Syria. Four deaths were reported. It happened allegedly in the North of the province of Hama, which is adjacent to the rebel governorate of Idlib, where all are in charge of terrorists and the armed opposition. The blame was taken by the militants of the group, which is part of the so-called «national liberation Front». This organization is advertised as a coalition of almost all opposition groups in Idlib province. It was created by Turkey on the basis of the Syrian free army. Ankara immediately after the Sochi agreement to freeze the conflict in Idlib began to restore order in the province. And it was for this purpose that the «Front» was created. It was to include all groups loyal to Turkey, ready to stop their irreconcilable struggle with the Syrian regime. So the idea was to Sweeney: the terrorists.
But in fact, it turned out not so. Many terrorists have defected to the national liberation Front and are now continuing their activities as almost untouchables. That is, no one touches them, but they constantly allow themselves to be provoked, primarily against the Syrian Arab army. In addition to shelling, they periodically make attacks on government territory. Of course, from time to time it leads to casualties. Russian specialists are constantly present in potentially dangerous areas, and this poses certain risks for them. The probability that at some point they also came under fire is quite high so that the message could be treated as true, but the Russian Ministry of defense quickly issued a refutation. All representatives of the Armed forces of the Russian Federation in Syria are alive and well and perform their tasks,» the Defense Ministry said in a statement.
And so far it is the only reliable source who officially responded to this statement. To him certainly, trust much more than some controversial statements of terrorists. But there is one caveat. In place of the dead military could be our mercenaries, soldiers from volunteer formations. Not once was a situation when the Ministry of defense denies the victims for the reason that though they were Russians, the relationship to the official armed forces had. The incident in Deir Ez-Zor was particularly well-known. Recall, then the Syrian military, along with Russian mercenaries crossed to the Eastern Bank of the Euphrates and tried to take the gas processing plant. But in this area, the positions were held by Kurdish separatists and Americans patronizing them. A battle ensued and it ended with the death of Russian and Syrian citizens.
Russian military expert Alexei Leonov reports that in this case, any information necessary to verify with an official source with the Ministry of defense.
— Sometimes a lot of stuffing. All need to in detail inspect. If the Defense Ministry gave a refutation, then the official military did not die. The probability that this is just a throw is high. The fact is that many forces are now trying to drive a wedge between Russia, Turkey, and Iran. It is reported that the attack of the Turks on us, the attack of the Russians on the Turks, the Iranians bombed there. It’s a hoax. Such fakes are needed primarily two countries involved in the Syrian conflict — the US and the UK. They both act on destruction, support terrorists and often coordinate their actions. Not so long ago, Russia and Turkey were on different sides, and now they cooperate. This is a unique phenomenon in fact, and well-known parties do not like it. Therefore, they seek to destroy this Union. Now, about the mercenaries. They’re more complicated than that. If they die, then in most cases the Defense Ministry is not responsible for them. But still, it is difficult not to agree that the Defense Ministry of their presence in Syria knows.
— Yes, of course, but only if the person arrived legally. However, they do not always coordinate their actions with the official military. For example, in Deir ez-Zor, when people died, there was no coordination with the Ministry of defense. And when the Americans, noticing suspicious movements on the Eastern Bank of the Euphrates, asked our military information whether the Russians are in this group, the answer was negative. Someone probably just wanted to earn extra money, so decided on strange actions. How did it end? When they began to shoot immediately showered with requests for assistance. Someone managed to save, but someone died. That’s what Amateur talent does. She shouldn’t be in these things. I also want to point out those who come to Syria illegally. Such, too, lack. And not always those who come to support terrorists. But in any case, their initiative will not lead to anything good. If there’s anything they can make, it’s probably their own headstone. In no case can this be done.
