I thought we only had "advisors" there.

It's surprising how many conflicts there are in which we seem to be involved on the quiet.

Apparently hundreds of similar Russian "mercenaries" in Syria.  Accidentally went up against US regs and lots ended up in the St Petersburg military hospital.  Wasn't it in all the papers?

Social media activity of things like supply regiments and transport air wings make very interesting reading with some of the destinations.

I've suspected for a long time that our influence in the world, or certainly that of those who reside here, is grossly understated.

The people I knew way back who were in the special forces seemed to always have something to do and somewhere to go. Even when “we” weren’t involved officially in anything.

Hired killers taking some return fire, how is this news?

I suppose if you regard British soldiers as scum then it wouldn't be.  Most people, including the soldiers themselves, view them as defending the UK and its interests.

Top Ho, to them. They may have to uphold situations, with which they personally disagree, in some dodgy circumstances That's up to the politicians though.

Yes.  I wonder if @Wig would have viewed the first day of the Somme as not news because it was just 20,000 "hired killers" that died.

Were they killed by "Daesh" mortar fire ?

Or actully killed by some other group (like syrian regular army" ) mortar fire 

whilst embeded with islamist rebel groups? 

You wont get the truth on this.

Or maybe it never happened. Apart from Sputnik news, there's no confirmation.

"Daesh" probably couldnt even muster a 5 minute shelling now.

More likely syrian regular army artillery salvo onto islamist terrorist positions.

Shouldn't be a problem once the army is full of snowflakes..   they'll be too busy writing to their MPs about harsh working conditions to go toe to toe with armed opposition.

Id wait til its reported.

If they reported half the stuff, our good people would freak out upon realising what a safe cocoon they live in.  But maybe also behave a bit better to protect their good fortune.  There are some real operational and back office heroes out there in a wide range of organisations.  Chaotic and full of mistakes but kinda works most of the time.  Anyone in doubt should spend a night in any of a number of sh*tholes around the world.

They report all deaths, even in places like Syria.

What were British forces doing in someone else's sovereign nation? I don't think we would be best pleased to find Syrian forces operating in Kent. 

The Russians are the only foreign military in Syria legally, as they were invited there by the government.

I'm guessing it was Assad's troops as the Deir ez-zor city was one of the few loyalist holdouts, under siege for 2 years and bombed by the yanks a few times. Don't suppose they are fans of western troops.

It does look like ISIS is still operating in the area and had a small battle south of the city recently.
