Russian servicemen in Syria conducted joint exercises with flamethrowers from the Syrian-Arab Armed Forces (SAR).
Russian military instructors helped Syrian soldiers to master new weapons for the country — flamethrowers were previously used there in exceptional cases.
Exercises in Syria are held regularly, despite the fact that the air temperature in the country sometimes reaches +50 degrees in summer.
"The personnel are ready, despite such heat, they are ready to conduct classes, although it is very difficult in these climatic conditions. But they are interested in it, and they continue to improve, " said Denis Chernov, a representative of the group of troops of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria.
According to the scenario of the exercises, the Syrian military had to repel a sabotage attack by militants.
Now all sabotage attacks are carried out with the help of special technical structures — dugouts, underground utilities. The flamethrower is ideal for completely burning out such engineering structures. In addition, it shoots at almost 2 thousand meters.
On July 16, the Russian military delivered food packages to the settlement of Al-Karamma in the Syrian province of Aleppo. The village has suffered seriously in recent years, the militants were expelled from here only in 2020.
