The Russian and Syrian defense ministries released several reports about intense clashes between militants and the Syrian Army in southeastern Idlib and southwestern Aleppo.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is repelling a large-scale attack on its positions in the southeastern Idlib countryside, the Ministry of Defense of Syria claimed in an official statement released on January 23.

The ministry said that the attack, led by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), is targeting the towns of al-Tah, Abu Jurif and Samka.

“Through the use of various types of weapons, including vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs)، and under heavy fire cover, the terrorists managed to penetrate some positons of the army on the direction of al-Tah, Abu Hurif and Samka,” the statement reads.

According to the Syrian MoD, the SAA redeployed its troops to repel the terrorists’ attack. Heavy clashes are currently taking place in the region.

Earlier on the same day, the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria reported that about 600 militants attacked SAA positions on the contact line in Idlib and Aleppo provinces:

  • A group of up to 270 militants, supported by 38 armed pickups attacked Syrian Army positions near At-Tah, and Muaysirunah. A group of Wadi as-Saane in southeastern Idlib;
  • Up to 250 militants, supported by 2 BMP vehicles and 30 armed pickups attacked Syrian Army positions near Abu Dafn, Bars and Huan as-Shaf in southeastern Idlib;
  • Up to 50 militants, supported by 4 vehicles armed with weapons, attacked Syrian Army positions near Rashidin 4 and al-Jazirah near Aleppo city.

According to the Russian side, government forces eliminated up to 50 militants, and wounded up to 90 others. At the same time, nearly 40 Syrian troops were killed and up to 80 injured, the Center added.

On January 22, the Russian military reported that the Syrian Army repelled an attack by militants on its positions near At Tah in southeastern Idlib. According to the report, the attack involved at least 30 militants with 3 vehicles equipped with weapons.

In a separate report, the Russian Reconciliation Center said that 46 Syrian service members have been killed and 77 were wounded in recent clashes with radical militants in Greater Idlib in the period from January 16 to January 19. According to the report, 57 civilians were killed and 116 others were injured as a result of attacks and shelling by militants.

These reports were not confirmed by any pro-government or pro-opposition sources. They didn’t report any large ground attack on SAA positions during the last 48 hours. HTS and its allies launched dozens of attacks from the region in the last few days. However, somehow attacks involving hundreds of militants and tens pieces of military equipment went unnoticed. One of the explanations is that they did not happen.

The motives behind the Syrian and Russian claims remain unclear. The two countries may be preparing public opinion for a large-scale ground operation in Greater Idlib, that has been repeatedly forecasted by pro-government sources. At the same time, these reports could be a part of the media operation designed to draw the audience’s attention from some other developments.

COMMUNICATION ISSUES, WRONG IDENTIFICATION WERE BEHIND FLIGHT 752 ACCIDENT: IRGC COMMANDER

 

The Head of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has accepted full responsibility for the downing of Ukrainian Airlines flight 752, revealing new details about the errors which led to the accident.

In a press conference on January 11, Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh said he “wished he could die” after being informed of the accident, which took place three days ago.

“Neither the IRGC nor the Armed Forces never intended to cover up, but this was a process that had to be perused,” the Press TV quoted the IRGC commander as saying.

Gen. Hajizadeh revealed that the country’s air defense network was on the “highest level of readiness” and alerted to of a possible cruise missile strike by the U.S. A few hours before the accident, the IRGC targeted U.S. bases in Iraq with ballistic missiles.

According to the Iranian commander, the operator of the Tor-M1 air-defense system, that shot down the plane, called for a halt in flights in the region during the night. He identified plane as a hostile cruise missile.

The operator wasn’t able to call for orders to deal with the perceived threat, as he is required to do, because of a failure in his communication system.

Gen. Hajizadeh said that the failure led the operator to “take the wrong decision” of firing on the perceived threat in a “ten-second” time-span.

All 176 crew members and passengers of the flight PS752, 147 of whom were Iranians, were killed in the crash. The plane was on a trip from Tehran to Kiev.

The IRGC commander said during the conference that concerned individuals were quarantined by the country’s higher authorities, stressing that the Guards will comply with any decision taken by them.

The satellite images and the recently appeared video allow to suggest that aircraft tent shelters most likely were the main targets of the strike. 

So far, the appeared evidence does not allow to see any large missile craters. This contributes to the version that missile warheads’ payload was smaller than it could be.

SUMMING UP RESULTS OF IRANIAN MISSILE STRIKE ON US MILITARY BASES IN IRAQ

 

On January 9, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) conducted missile strikes on the US-operated Ayn al-Assad airbase and the US military HQ in Erbil city in Iraq.

Depending on sources the IRGC launched from 10 to 22 missiles:

  • According to the IRGC, over 10 missiles were launched and all of them hit the assigned targets. Iranian state television claimed that at least 80 “American terrorists” were killed in Iranian strikes. This number of casualties has not confirmed by any evidience;
  • The Iraqi military said that 22 missiles were launched. 17 of them hit the Ain al-Asad air base, including 2 missiles that did not explode, and 5 missiles hit the US facility in the city of Erbil. Iraq denied any casualties among its forces;
  • The US military said that 10 missiles hit the Ayn al-Assad airbase, a misile struck the US facility in Erbil and 4 missiles failed. The Pentagon, and later US President Donald Trump, denied any casualties among US or Iraqi personnel.
  • The available infomration indicates that there really were no casualties among US and Iraqi personnel, while the Iranian missiles successfully struck their targets. The advanced warning of the Iraqi side (that intentionally or unintentionally informed the US) by Iran is among the main reasons of this result. Therefore, the Iranian strike was not intended to lead to casualties among US or Iraqi personnel deployed at these bases. The pattern of damage caused to the Ayn al-Assad airbase also allows to suggest the missile warheads’ payload was much smaller than it could be. In this case, the strike was first of all a strong military (!) message to the US military and political leadership.

Iran’s semi-official Tashim news agency citing own sources said the IRGC employed Qiam (the range – 800km) and Fateh-313 (the range – 500 km) short-range ballistic missiles. However, photos and videos appearing oline demonstrate a bit different picture. According to them, that the IRGC in fact employed Qiam and Zolfaghar (the range – up to 800km) missiles.

Open data suggests that the missile launches were made from Iran’s Kirmasan province. One of the largest Iranian missile bases is located  near Kirmasan city.

The Zolfaghar short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) is a variant of the Fateh-110 SRBM family. It was developed as a part of the campaign to improve the range and accuracy of the existing missiles. The Zolfaghar reportedly has a range of 800km. Iranian media reports claim that the Zolfaghar’s accuracy is within 10 meters

While the Iranian strike apparently caused no casualties, the IRGC publicly demonstrated that they can peneterate US air defense using its domestic-produced ballistic missiles and electronic warfare systems (mostly Russian).

Satellite images and visual evidence from the ground demonstrate that the strike was preceise and caused a visible impact to the Ayn al-Assad airbase. The close grouping of destroyed targets serves as a visual demonstration of the accuracy of the Iranian missiles.

The satellite images and the recently appeared video allow to suggest that aircraft tent shelters most likely were the main targets of the strike. So far, the appeared evidence does not allow to see any large missile craters. This contributes to the version that missile warheads’ payload was smaller than it could be.

The January 8 nation adress by President Donald Trump confirms that the US received and understood the message: Iran is capable of striking any US military facility anywhere around the Middle East and this strike will be effective. Therefore, the  Trump administration did not risk with a new war, declared the Iranian missile strike on its military bases a ‘success’ and limited the response to new sanctions and loud rhetoric about Iran-backed ‘terrorism’.

The question is how the US will react to a further pressure from local forces in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. The US assassination of Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani, the Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units, and other prominent Iraqi and Iranian officers led to a very negative reaction from the local population in Iraq. This negative already led to several rocket strikes on the area of the US Embassy in Baghdad. The most recent of these strikes followed Trump’s ‘peaceful’ nation adress on the situation with Iran.

CNN VIDEO OF U.S AIRBASE RUINS: Iran Entirely Destroys Airbase – ‘Unimaginable Damage!’
 
 

In an exclusive report from the al-Asad airbase where the US soldiers were based in Iraq, CNN described the extent of the damage to the base as unimaginable.

The hosts exclaims incredulity that no U.S servicemen were injured. FRN previously ran video appearing to demonstrate that U.S soldiers were at the base.

Iranian domestic media reported between a dozen to eighty killed and injured U.S solders.

The U.S anti-air defenses were entirely useless against the Iranian missiles. 100% of the launched missiles penetrated U.S defenses, with high accuracy.

This demonstration of force and the U.S inability to stop these next-generation Iranian missiles may serve well for western audiences, inculcated from early childhood into believing the mythology of an invincible U.S.
