(NSFW) Front-line Russian Reporter at SAA Casualty Collection Point in Damascus

Published Nov. 17, 2021

A Russian reporter on the front-lines of the fighting between the Syrian Arab Army and the Free Syrian Army in 2017 finds himself trapped at an SAA casualty collection point.


Warning: The video above contains scenes that may be unsuitable for some viewers.


A casualty collection point is a centralized location on the battlefield where front-line casualties are taken to receive initial treatment for their injuries. For a professional military, this will often look like a hardened location that's safe from enemy fire where a medic or several medics are positioned to conduct initial trauma care for wounded Soldiers. Following this location, troops are usually transported to a nearby field medical hospital where they can receive extended medical treatment, like surgeries, before they are sent to a professional care facility where they can start to recover.


In the case of the Syrian Arab Army however, this is not so. The Syrian Arab Army, for those not in the loop, is an army primarily built from under-trained and poorly equipped conscripts. For these guys, a casualty collection point is where you bring your wounded before trying to get them into a truck that will take them to the nearest hospital. Medical treatment looks like who can shove something onto this wound to slow the bleeding and the safety of the location is also very much in question. In fact, it's not entirely clear that this position was intentionally established as a casualty collection point. It may have just turned into one due to it being in a relatively hardened structure.


This footage was recorded by an unknown Russian journalist in Jobar, Damascus back in July of 2017. This battle would eventually go in favor of the Free Syrian Army as the assault was stalled by heavy weapons and explosives from the FSA. In September of this same year however the Syrian Arab Army would conduct another assault on Jobar with the more professional Republican Guard and 4th Armored Division where they would break through FSA lines and regain control of the city.
