Russian sappers started the demining of public facilities in Deir Ezzor city, east of Syria. Most of the city was liberated and the siege by ISIS was lifted by the SAA and allies with assistance from the Russian forces.

More than 15 square kilometers, 150 million square meters, will be scanned and de-mined in the city. ISIS terrorists with their US sponsors were busy not only making life near impossible to the besieged civilians in the city but also to make the city impossible to live in long after they leave.

Russian sappers along with their counterparts from the Syrian Arab Army engineering units have worked hand in hand to clean the entire liberated Eastern Aleppo districts from mines and IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) planted by the FSA other branch known as Nusra Front before they left.

FSA or Free Syrian Army is an umbrella banner invented by the US and its allies to offer a political cover to terrorist groups operating under its name and to whitewash the heinous crimes committed by them. It later incorporated its own undertakers aka the White Helmets who only operate under the Nusra Front (Al-Qaeda Levant) command.

Russian Ministry of Defense stated today that more than 170 personnel, 10 crews and 40 special devices and equipment from its International Mine Action Center have already arrived in Syria. The equipment includes remote-controlled robots for demining.

The ministry set as a first phase to clear mines from the roads leading to the infrastructure facilities in the city of Deir Ezzor, hospitals, irrigation, water, and sewerage networks as well as the electricity network and facilities.
