BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) carried out several airstrikes over southeastern Deir Ezzor, Monday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions around the strategic border-city of Albukamal.

These Syrian airstrikes would inflict heavy damage on the Islamic State’s defenses, while also killing dozens of terrorist combatants positioned around Albukamal and Al-Mayadeen.

According to a military source, the Syrian Air Force killed two top Islamic State commanders around Albukamal this afternoon; they were identified as Hazem Al-Barhash and Haytham Al-Ghazi.

The source added that three other commanders were wounded when a Syrian airstrike struck an Islamic State meeting to discuss the defense of Albukamal.
