Minutes ago in the Palmyra (Tadmur) countryside, the Russian Air Force launched a powerful series of airstrikes over the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) positions, hitting several targets near the strategic town of Al-Sukhanah in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.
In addition to striking Al-Sakhanah, the Russian Air Force has provided air cover to the advancing soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the vicinity of Palmyra.
The town of Al-Sakanah is surrounded by several important oil fields that have provided ISIS with a substantial amount of revenue from their oil sales.
According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus, the Russian Air Force is continuing their aerial campaign to weaken ISIS around Syria and they have not let up, despite reducing their force inside Syria.
