“Спасибо, моя игрушечка, что не подвела”, – позывной “Зверь” целует свой АК. Сегодня ночью у него был поединок с вражеским снайпером. “Зверь”, обычный солдат-контрактник, оказался быстрее и точнее. И это спасло ему жизнь. Противник “Зверя”, тридцатитрехлетний наемник, с военным билетом ДНР не выжил, хотя украинские бойцы, забрав его вместе с документами с “ничьей земли”, пытались оказать ему первую помощь. Жаль. В Гааге очень нужны свидетели.
UPD Тем, кто считает, что лица наших воинов необходимо “замыливать”:
Этого парня, с разрешения руководства бригады и его самого, сегодня снимали четыре телеканала. Это наш герой. И может хватит уже прятать лица защитников Украины.

3-7-17BEIRUT, LEBANON – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had another productive day on the Palmyra frontier and advanced both north and east of the ancient city.

With Russian choppers and jets continuesly hunting down ISIS militants in the region, the SAA managed to impose full control over the Al-Amriyah mountains and the nearby hills northeast of Palmyra (Tadmur) city….Palmyra will be fully secured from a looming ISIS counter-offensive once the SAA liberates the Palmyra Silos and the groves area south of the ancient city.   https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/syrian-army-reaches-palmyra-silos-expels-isis-adjacent-mountains-map-update/

3-9-17     U.S.-backed Syrian forces said on Thursday they were closing in on Islamic State-held Raqqa and expected to reach the city outskirts in a few weeks, as a U.S. Marines artillery unit deployed to help the campaign.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a militia alliance including the Kurdish YPG, is the main U.S. partner in the war against Islamic State in Syria.  Since November it has been working with the U.S.-led coalition to encircle Raqqa.  SDF spokesman Talal Silo said:  “We expect that within a few weeks there will be a siege of the city.”  http://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-raqqa-idUSKBN16G1CB
