In the city until now no troops, rebels or special forces have dared to enter. In the night there were many small provocations in order to try to establish the locations of the government troops. Several small squads of rebels tried a probing action in the night to reconnaissance, but were destroyed.
At the same time in the air at that time was a remote-controlled
reconnaissance spying aircraft (UAV) "drone", which exposed the city's defense. After an hour air attacks took place on these plotted points. However, defenders of the city have already left their positions to other locations, writes the lieutenant colonel.
According to him, "the situation resembles the terrible winter of '95 in Grozny, Chechnia, when there was bombing everything that moved, without proper guiding systems or accurate coordinates. The only difference was that then
the Russian airforce did not have much fuel, so the flights were not as intensive as they are now.
At the moment, the NATO airforce is in the air almost around the clock".
