The Syrian army, under the leadership of Russian military advisors and support from aviation, continues its military operation in the city of Deir ez-Zor, moving out of the desert in the Palmyra region.
On stand by are tank units of the SAA 5th Army Corps, who on a daily basis come face to face with the enemy in the desert areas of the provinces of Homs and Deir ez-Zor.
ISIS has begun an offensive in an attempt to slow down the rapid advance of Syria’s armed forces. Some of the fighting was captured in the video, where attentive viewers noticed an interesting detail:
Around 11 seconds in, we see a tank explode, which was a suicide vehicle that was loaded with explosives. The Syrian military shouts: “Bravo, Oleg! Bravo, Oleg! “
Military advisers are the officers who train soldiers of the allied forces, but also adjust their actions during actual combat, helping to consolidate skills in practice.
The video captured that very moment.
The soldiers of the 5th Army Corps of the SAA, together with Russian support, were able to destroy around 50 terrorists.
This week, the SAA has been able to resume control of previously occupied areas near the Air Base T-2, knocking out the enemy. Lebanese Hezbollah are also involved.
