Deir ez-Zor. 01/25/2017

About the situation in Deir ez-Zor by the end of January 25, 2017.

After repulsing the attack of militants in the area of ​​the base, “Panorama” and the crossroads in the direction of the 137th base, CAA continued attempts to connect to the enclave cut off from the airfield. Having taken January 22-24 of the old cemetery, CAA and militia infantry came up against the militants in the defense of the road adjacent to the ruins of the city blocks, where the enemy could easily organize fire effects on the way to the air base. This problem is solved in the course of the last several days – the area continues to cover aviation, and thrown over Kamishli replenishment from the Republican Guard (the 104th Brigade, in the transfer participated Russian military transport aircraft), will increase the number of assault groups, which the Syrians could use in street battles.

During the January 25 in the ruins of the road and the cemetery continued heavy fighting in which several CAA has pressed militants that allowed some Syrian sources even report about restoring messages from an airbase. In fact, the formal contact parts of the enclave, in place of the narrow bridge continuing heavy fighting, and the area in addition to the shock of the Russian and Syrian aircraft, as well exposed to heavy fire from mortars and howitzers militants. To restore the message in practice with the air base, it is necessary not only to protect the area from the road, but also to expand the control zone to the south of it, in the direction of Jiraiya. The problem is exactly the same as that of the fighters in the battle for Ramuseh. In touch with the surrounded in Aleppo they could, but to organize a full-fledged communication and supply – not. In this case, the situation is compounded by isolation of the enclave. So talk about the problems of too early decision, although it is understandable that the Syrians are hoping that they will be able to push the infantry defense fighters. In general, as mentioned earlier in this regard – the situation is difficult, but not hopeless, and then after a militant to the university, “Al-Furat” Syrians have already begun to bury.

It can be noted that the CAA despite the initial failure, could repel the Caliphate aimed at the immediate elimination of the enclave and now by reinforcements of thrown and active air strikes (where the aircraft again today participated Russian VKS long-range bomber) tries to return at least part of the lost ground. At the same time due to the activity of the aircraft and smart maneuver few reserves, unable to repel the attacks of the militants as district 137th base and the very air base. In the last days of the Khilafah operation clearly lost harmony and now the enemy is likely trying to realize their superiority in numbers, rather than strike the Syrians some tactical delights. Losses during the last days and exhausting strikes, obviously difficult “black” realization of the benefits achieved 15-17 January.
