BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – Today, the Russian Aerospace Forces (RuAF) have carried out a number of devastating strikes against ISIS in eastern Hama Governorate. The raids are said to have inflicted heavy manpower and equipment losses on the jihadist faction.

According to reports, Russian airpower targeted and destroyed an ammunition storage site belonging to ISIS in the strategic town of ‘Uqraiybat as well as a large gathering of ISIS vehicles on ‘Uqrayibat to al-Sukhna road.

Preliminary battle damage assessments by military sources put ISIS losses as a result of the airstrikes at 30 militants killed and at least ten vehicles destroyed.

If this is in fact the case, then these airstrikes by the RuAF represent some of the most powerful yet delivered on eastern Hama front and likely serve as an indication that pro-government forces intend to commit major military resources dislodging ISIS terrorists in the region.
