‘Weekoverzicht Defensieoperaties

Nederlandse militairen in Afghanistan mochten alleen in het hoogstnoodzakelijke geval het kamp verlaten. Reden was de oproep van Islamic Emirate de wapens op Nederlandse militairen te richten. Een overzicht van Defensieoperaties in de week van 29 augustus tot 5 september.

Islamic Emirate beschouwde de door Geert Wilders geïnitieerde cartoonwedstrijd in Nederland als een vijandige aanval op de profeet Mohammed.

Na verdere analyse van de dreiging bleek dat de maatregelen die altijd al genomen worden door de militairen in Afghanistan, ook passend zijn bij de huidige dreiging. De militairen continueren hun activiteiten buiten de poort hetzelfde als voorheen.

Nederland neemt op dit moment in Afghanistan met ongeveer 100 militairen deel aan de NAVO-missie Resolute Support. Vanuit Mazar-e-Sharif en Kabul helpen ze het Afghaanse leger en de politie te versterken. Een Nederlands chirurgisch team werkt in Mazar-e-Sharif.

Midden-Oosten

In de strijd tegen terreurorganisatie ISIS ondersteunden Nederlandse F-16’s grondtroepen tijdens 8 missies boven de Syrische provincie Deir al Zour en 1 boven Irak. Bij de laatste zijn wapens ingezet. Daarbij is een ISIS-voertuig uitgeschakeld. Deze inzet vond plaats in de Irakese provincie Al Anbar in de buurt van de Midden-Euphraatvallei.’

Comme quasiment tous les jours depuis le début de l’opération Chammal, les aéronefs du « Groupe de bombardement 43 » ont décollé, le 31 août, de la base aérienne projetée en Jordanie pour lutter contre Daech depuis le ciel syro-irakien. Cette mission s’est conclue par la réalisation d’une frappe sur deux caches d’armes dans la vallée de l’Euphrate, qui a permis de poursuivre la réduction du potentiel militaire ennemi.

Les pilotes des Rafale ont procédé au tir d’armements de précision qui ont détruit leurs objectifs. Afin de mener à bien cette mission en toute sécurité, ces frappes ont été précédées d’une reconnaissance du site en coordination avec un drone de la coalition et ont fait l’objet d’un dialogue constant avec un contrôleur aérien avancé en charge de désigner l’objectif aux pilotes.

Il a fallu plus de six heures de vol à la patrouille de Rafale et trois ravitaillements en vol pour accomplir cette mission qui s’inscrivait dans le cadre de la préparation de l’offensive des forces démocratiques syriennes contre les derniers réduits territoriaux de Daech en Syrie.

La base aérienne projetée en Jordanie contribue au quotidien à la lutte contre Daech. Depuis sa création le 21 novembre 2014, près de 6 000 sorties et 26 000 heures de vol ont été réalisées par les aéronefs qui y sont stationnés.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ground offensive begins for Operation Roundup, phase three

SOUTHWEST ASIA – Syrian Democratic Forces initiated ground operations for phase three of Operation Roundup on September 10.

The ground offensive, supported by Coalition cross-border air and artillery strikes, will clear ISIS remnants from northeastern Syria, along the Middle Euphrates River Valley toward the Syria-Iraq border.

Operation Roundup began May 1, 2018. Phase one successfully cleared ISIS near Baghuz in northeastern Syria May 15. Phase two cleared ISIS from Dashisha, Syria July 20. Shaping operations for phase three began Aug. 4, and ground operations will clear ISIS remnants from Hajin and the remaining Dayr Az Zawr countryside east of the Euphrates River.

Syrian Democratic Forces have proven themselves reliable, effective combat soldiers who abide by the law of armed conflict.

“We will continue to support our SDF partners in our shared fight against ISIS in Syria, and we thank the SDF for the incredible contribution and sacrifices they have made on behalf of the international community,” said Maj. Gen. Patrick Roberson, commander of the Special Operations Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve.

SDF operations, with Coalition support, have been instrumental in defeating ISIS and liberating millions of Syrians from brutal terrorist rule. The removal of ISIS from the battlefield has also thwarted the terrorist organization’s ability to recruit, train, equip, finance, inspire, plan and execute attacks throughout the region and the rest of the world.

“The multi-ethnic Syrian Democratic Forces remain committed to liberating the people of northeastern Syria from ISIS’s control and putting an end to the human suffering in the area,” said Roberson. “Moving forward, we will continue coordination with the SDF and other partners to promote regional security and stability that will ensure a lasting defeat of ISIS.”

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve remains committed to defeating ISIS in designated parts of Iraq and Syria, and to helping set conditions for follow-on operations to increase regional stability.’

Daesh fighters were observed in action on the outskirts of a village to the east of Abu Kamal, throwing grenades and firing a machine-gun. The terrorists took cover beneath the overhang of a building, but the Reaper’s crew were able to guide a Hellfire missile very accurately to strike them.’

The Reaper used a Hellfire missile to kill a terrorist on a motorcycle in the area. Typhoons used one Paveway IV against a group of extremists whom a coalition surveillance aircraft had spotted moving in the open, then employed a further three such weapons against a long, low building occupied by other Daesh fighters.

CHAMMAL: le pilier « appui » de l’opération

Mise à jour  : 17/10/2018

Le 10 septembre 2018, les forces démocratiques syriennes (FDS) soutenues par la coalition ont lancé une offensive terrestre dans la moyenne Vallée de l’Euphrate à la frontière entre l’Irak et la Syrie. Elle vise à neutraliser la dernière emprise territoriale tenue par les terroristes en Syrie.

La coalition participe à cette ultime phase de la lutte contre Daech en appuyant les FDS engagées pour reconquérir la poche d’Hajin, située sur la rive orientale de l’Euphrate. Tous les moyens du pilier « appui » de l’opération Chammal sont engagés.

Actuellement, le pilier « appui » est structuré autour de dix Rafale de l’armée de l’air, d’un Atlantique 2 de la Marine Nationale et d’un détachement d’artillerie équipé de canons CAESAR.

Ces moyens participent activement au soutien des troupes combattant au sol, en mettant en œuvre leurs capacités de renseignement et de frappes ciblées.

Les 25 et 27 septembre 2018, les Rafales de la base aérienne projetée au Levant ont par exemple réalisé des missions offensives dans la Moyenne Vallée de l’Euphrate. Équipés de bombes de précision à guidage GPS, les pilotes de Rafales ont détruit une cache d’armes ainsi qu’une structure logistique du groupe terroriste dans la région d’Abou Kamal en Syrie. En tout 8 frappes ont été réalisées depuis le 10 septembre au cours de près de 130 sorties aériennes en appui des FDS.

Les artilleurs français de la Task Force Wagram tiennent également un rôle prépondérant dans l’opération. Ils ont effectué près d’une centaine de missions de tirs depuis le début de cette ultime phase de l’opération.

Depuis le début de l’opération Chammal les forces du pilier « appui » ont réalisé 1 464 frappes aériennes et 1 975 missions de tir d’artillerie. Après quatre années d’opérations, le groupe terroriste Daech a perdu la quasi-totalité de son territoire.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.

Update from UK MoD for Tuesday 25 September:

‘Tuesday 25 September – a Reaper destroyed a mortar firing on the Syrian Democratic Forces…Further close support was provided to the SDF on Tuesday 25 September, when a Reaper caught a Daesh mortar in the act of firing, north of Abu Kamal. The mortar team was hit with a GBU-12.’

CHAMMAL: le pilier « appui » de l’opération

Mise à jour  : 17/10/2018

Le 10 septembre 2018, les forces démocratiques syriennes (FDS) soutenues par la coalition ont lancé une offensive terrestre dans la moyenne Vallée de l’Euphrate à la frontière entre l’Irak et la Syrie. Elle vise à neutraliser la dernière emprise territoriale tenue par les terroristes en Syrie.

La coalition participe à cette ultime phase de la lutte contre Daech en appuyant les FDS engagées pour reconquérir la poche d’Hajin, située sur la rive orientale de l’Euphrate. Tous les moyens du pilier « appui » de l’opération Chammal sont engagés.

Actuellement, le pilier « appui » est structuré autour de dix Rafale de l’armée de l’air, d’un Atlantique 2 de la Marine Nationale et d’un détachement d’artillerie équipé de canons CAESAR.

Ces moyens participent activement au soutien des troupes combattant au sol, en mettant en œuvre leurs capacités de renseignement et de frappes ciblées.

Les 25 et 27 septembre 2018, les Rafales de la base aérienne projetée au Levant ont par exemple réalisé des missions offensives dans la Moyenne Vallée de l’Euphrate. Équipés de bombes de précision à guidage GPS, les pilotes de Rafales ont détruit une cache d’armes ainsi qu’une structure logistique du groupe terroriste dans la région d’Abou Kamal en Syrie. En tout 8 frappes ont été réalisées depuis le 10 septembre au cours de près de 130 sorties aériennes en appui des FDS.

Les artilleurs français de la Task Force Wagram tiennent également un rôle prépondérant dans l’opération. Ils ont effectué près d’une centaine de missions de tirs depuis le début de cette ultime phase de l’opération.

Depuis le début de l’opération Chammal les forces du pilier « appui » ont réalisé 1 464 frappes aériennes et 1 975 missions de tir d’artillerie. Après quatre années d’opérations, le groupe terroriste Daech a perdu la quasi-totalité de son territoire.

Lancée depuis le 19 septembre 2014, l’opération Chammal représente la participation française à l’OIR (opération Inherent Resolve) et mobilise aujourd’hui près de 1 100 militaires. À la demande du gouvernement irakien et en coordination avec les alliés de la France présents dans la région, l’opération Chammal repose sur deux piliers complémentaires : un pilier « formation» au profit d’unités de sécurité nationales irakiennes et un pilier « appui » consistant à soutenir l’action des forces locales engagées au sol contre Daech et à frapper les capacités militaires du groupe terroriste.

 

Update from UK MoD for Thursday 27 September:

‘Thursday 27 September – a Reaper destroyed a terrorist stockpile of explosives in eastern Syria…On Thursday 27 September, a Reaper used a single Hellfire missile to attack a building north-east of Abu Kamal, which had been identified as containing a Daesh stockpile of explosives. Large secondary blasts followed the missile’s impact, confirming the destruction of the explosives inside.’

 

Update from French MoD on September 27th:

[For Sept 18th – 25th, France report 29 sorties and one airstrike that destroyed an ISIS weapons cache in the Abu Kamal region of Syria. Additionally, Task Force Wagram conducted four ‘lighting missions’ in the Euphrates Valley.]

Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve Monthly Civilian Casualty Report

 

SOUTHWEST ASIA– The Coalition has worked by, with and through partners since 2014 to defeat ISIS in designated parts of Iraq and Syria, liberating nearly 8 million Iraqis and Syrians from ISIS’s brutal rule and reducing its control of territory to approximately one percent of what it previously held.

We continue to employ thorough and deliberate targeting and strike processes to minimize the impact of our operations on civilian populations and infrastructure. This process includes thorough review and vetting of each target package prior to a strike, and another review after that strike. Our regular strike reports make our activities publicly accessible, and our monthly publication of civilian casualty reports makes our civilian casualty assessments similarly accessible to the public.

As we have demonstrated, we are willing to consider new civilian casualty allegations as well as new or compelling evidence on past allegations to establish accountability based on the best available evidence.

The Coalition conducted a total of 30,008 strikes between August 2014 and end of August 2018. During this period, based on information available, CJTF-OIR assesses at least 1114 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes since the start of Operation Inherent Resolve.

In the month of August, CJTF-OIR carried over 219* open reports from previous months and received 151 new reports. The assessment of 60 civilian casualty reports has been completed. Out of the 60 completed casualty reports, eight of the reports were determined to be credible and resulted in 53 unintentional civilian deaths. Two of the reports were determined to be duplicate reports that had previously reported and the remaining 50 reports were assessed to be non-credible. A total of 310 reports are still open.

Credible Reports– In each of eight incidents, the investigation assessed that although all feasible precautions were taken and the decision to strike complied with the law of armed conflict, unintended civilian casualties regrettably occurred.

1. August 13, 2016, near Qayyarah, Iraq, via media report. During a strike on ISIS headquarters and fighting positions six civilians were unintentionally killed.

2. January 13, 2017, near al-Arabi neighborhood, Mosul, Iraq, via Airwars report. During a strike on ISIS fighting positions and an ISIS headquarters building, three civilians were unintentionally killed.

3. February 23, 2017, near Mosul al-Jadidah (New Mosul), Iraq, via Airwars report. During a strike on ISIS fighting positions, VBIED facilities and an explosive factory, five civilians were unintentionally killed.

4. March 22, 2017, near al-Thani, Tabaqa, Syria, via Airwars report. During a strike on an ISIS fighting position, seven civilians were unintentionally killed.

5. May 16, 2017, near al-Zangili neighborhood, Mosul, Iraq, via Airwars report. During a strike on ISIS fighting positions, a VBIED facility and a command and control center, twenty civilians were unintentionally killed.

6. June 29, 2017, near Bab Lakash, Mosul, Iraq, via Airwars report. During a strike on ISIS fighting positions, six civilians were unintentionally killed.

7. August 1, 2017, near Qadiya, Iraq, via self-report. During a strike two civilians were injured and two civilians were unintentionally killed.

8. May 23, 2018, near Hajin, Syria, via self-report. During a strike four civilians were unintentionally killed.

Duplicate Reports— two reports were assessed to be duplicate of other reports that have been or are currently being assessed this month.

1. March 16, 2017, near al-Jina town, west Aleppo, Syria, via Airwars report. It is a duplicate of non- credible report in the July 2017 civilian casualty report.

2. March 29, 2017, near al-Safsaf, Syria, via Airwars report. It is a duplicate of an open allegation awaiting assessment.

Non Credible Reports–After a thorough review of the facts and circumstances of each civilian

casualty report, CJTF-OIR assessed the following 50 reports as non-credible. At this time there is insufficient information to assess that, more likely than not, a Coalition strike resulted in civilian casualties.

1. January 11, 2015, near Qayyarah, Iraq, via Airwars report. After a review of available information it was assessed that no Coalition strikes were conducted in the geographical area that correspond to the report of civilian casualties.

2. June 11, 2015, near Muhasan, Syria, via Airwars report. After a review of available information it was assessed that no Coalition strikes were conducted in the geographical area that correspond to the report of civilian casualties.

3. March 19, 2016, near Qayyarah, Iraq, via media report. After a review of available information and strike video it was assessed that there is insufficient evidence to find civilians were harmed in this strike.

4. October 24, 2016, near Tubzawa village, Iraq, via Airwars report. After a review of available information and strike video it was assessed that there is insufficient evidence to find civilians were harmed in this strike.

5. November 1, 2016, near Karama, Mosul, Iraq, via Airwars report. After a review of available information and strike video it was assessed that there is insufficient evidence to find civilians were harmed in this strike.

CHAMMAL
SITUATION MILITAIRE DU THÉÂTRE
Offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech en Syrie
L’opération pour reprendre la poche d’Hajine dans la moyenne vallée de l’Euphrate, lancée le 10 septembre, se poursuit méthodiquement. Appuyées par la coalition, les forces démocratiques syriennes (FDS) progressent malgré la menace omniprésente d’engins explosifs improvisés.
Poursuite des actions de sécurisation en Irak
En Irak, les forces de sécurité irakiennes (FSI) poursuivent leurs opérations de sécurisation. Daech est contraint à recourir à une stratégie d’évitement. La pression est maintenue sur les djihadistes, afin que la vie quotidienne de la population reprenne un cours normal.
ACTIVITÉ DE LA FORCE
Le dispositif français déployé au Levant n’a connu qu’une seule évolution, l’Atlantique 2 ayant quitté le théâtre.
La Task Force Wagram en appui de l’offensive contre les dernières poches de Daech présentes dans la vallée de l’Euphrate
La Task Force Wagram appuie l’offensive des forces démocratiques syriennes contre Daech dans la région d’Hajine.
Cette semaine, les trois canons CAESAR de la TF Wagram ont réalisé, depuis le territoire irakien, 14 missions de tir (bilan du 26 septembre au 2 octobre inclus).
Depuis le début de son engagement, la Task Force Wagram a réalisé 1929 missions de tirs.

Les bases aériennes en Jordanie et aux EAU en appui des opérations
Au sein de la coalition, les aéronefs français basés en Jordanie et aux Émirats arabes unis poursuivent leurs actions contre Daech.
Cette semaine, les aéronefs de l’opération Chammal ont réalisé 22 sorties aériennes (bilan du 26 septembre au 2 octobre inclus) et conduit une frappe au nord d’Abou Kamal en Syrie.
Bilan total de l’action du pilier appui aérien depuis le 19/09/14 :
8528 sorties / 1459 frappes / 2251 objectifs neutralisés.

TF Monsabert et Narvik
La Task Force Monsabert poursuit sa mission d’instruction de la 6ème division irakienne. En lien avec le conseiller santé de la division, l’équipe médicale de la TF s’est entretenue avec le personnel du service d’urgences d’un hôpital de Bagdad. Cette discussion a permis de comprendre leur façon de travailler. Cela permettra de mieux conseiller les équipes de la 6ème division en matière de soutien médical au combat.
La Task Force Narvik continue ses actions de formation au profit des membres de l’Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service (ICTS).’
