Russian Engineers Destroy 1,500 Explosives in Deir Ezzor Demining Op
Local Editor

Russian sappers, equipped with the latest demining technology, managed to find and destroy over 1,500 explosives since they began clearing the streets of Deir Ezzor as the Syrian Army continues clearing the city and surrounds from remaining Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] terrorists.

Deir Ezzor

A group of 170 mine clearance specialists were sent to the Syrian city shortly after the army lifted the blockade of Deir Ezzor.

On Thursday, the Russian defense ministry announced that the detachment from the International Mine Action Center of the Russian Armed Forces had already made progress in their difficult and dangerous assignment.

In a matter of days, the sappers divided into 10 groups, checked and cleared 8 kilometers of roads, 8 buildings and about 3 hectares of the surrounding terrain.

Focusing their work on clearing the streets that lead to vital city social infrastructure - hospitals, water supply, and electricity facilities - the teams, have so far, discovered and destroyed around 1,500 explosive items, including roughly 100 homemade and improvised devices.

"At present, engineering reconnaissance and mine clearance teams are working on clearing roads, roadsides and adjacent buildings at entrances to the city and its outskirts, to ensure the safety of humanitarian convoys sent to the city of Deir Ezzor," the defense ministry said.

Russian military officials estimate that specialists will have to clear up to 1,500 hectares of land from explosives in Deir Ezzor and surrounding areas after Daesh terrorists booby-trapped the vicinity as they fled.
