Aleppo, Syria (9:00 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force launched a series of non-stop airstrikes over the southern sector of Aleppo City on Tuesday morning, targeting the jihadist rebel defenses at the Al-Ramouseh and Al-‘Amariyah districts.

According to a military source in Aleppo City, the Russian Air Force fired 3 ballistic missiles at the Artillery Academy, marking the first time that the latter has attacked this military installation since it fell last week.

These Russian airstrikes over southern Aleppo were conducted in conjunction with the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) missile assault against Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).

Preliminary reports from Aleppo City this morning indicate that the Syrian Arab Army is preparing to attack the jihadist defenses in southern Aleppo; however, this has not been confirmed.

Rats confirm RuAF bombing is making life difficult but they still operate. Only massive Russian-style artillery can stop them

Russian Air Force launched ballistic missiles… really…
Think again: can any airplane carry such a heavy thing
as a ballistic missile?

The article says air force, not air planes. Technically air force can launch ballistic missiles. US ICBMs are under air force command. Although, in this case i doubt russian air force launched any ballistic missiles.

Russia has plenty of air-to-ground missiles but they most likely launched iskander-M’s from Russias airbase.

They can shoot ballistic missiles from the Caspian sea with nuclear submarines.

i thought those were cruise missiles. They are different. Ballistic missiles are usually launched from land, can be air launched too and even nuclear armed (the large ones) but those are defo not the ones in question here.

So again its probably leith not giving a f**k about being technical.

The Tsar bomba weighed 27 tons and was launched from a Tu-95, you know 😉
Ballistic missile forces are a branch of the VKS (russian aerospace forces)… In fact, there is no russian air-forces, only aerospaces forces 😉

Their masters are not in Europe, motherfucker, let’s send them to you because you’re inciting terrorism, although the local SWAT team then end in some black site i.e a container in some airport international zone and a little waterboarding would please you?…

I think you meant Syrian attack with ballistic missiles? Usually there are not air launched.

The poorest things are the shithadists : they sold their souls to Iblis and Russia is making fertilizer with them… We told ’em! No! Better feed the pigs with their carcasses but mother Russia does as she pleases and she has huge corn fields to fertilize, they’re needed to make vodka and well, vodka is better into connecting people than the internet 🙂

They shouldn’t: the main task is to obliterate them on the ground not letting them reinforce their positions inside the city and reduce significantly their numbers so that, when the massive SAA counterattack comes, their front lines crumble and the SAA not only gets back Aleppo, but wins the war…
The jihadists are sustaining too many casualties in one last bid…

I would not waste my time trying to correct this or that ground battle statistic or correctly point out who had fired what weapon at 3 p.m. today, but even if 54 percent of this reporting is correct, this region of the East is in big trouble.
