BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Iraqi Air Force unleashed a number of airstrikes over Syria’s southeastern region, today, targeting several Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) sites inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Led by their F-16 fleet, the Iraqi Air Force began their aerial campaign by hammering Daesh’s positions inside the key town of Al-Sousah.

According to the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, this aerial assault by their F-16 fleet resulted in the death of more than 40 Daesh terrorists that were positioned around Al-Sousah.

The Iraqi Ministry of Defense added that their air force managed to destroy at least two weapons depots in the southeastern part of Deir Ezzor.

While the airstrikes in Syria are rare, they often prove incredibly effective because the Iraqi Air Force is operating on exclusive information on the Daesh forces in the area.

It is in U.S. interest to allow ISIS to limp along, like a decaying carcass.

Amrika will soon educate the world that just similar to Good & Bad Taliban Amrikans have in Afghanistan where the Good Taliban are the ones the Amrikans managed to kill using Air Craft, Drones & their GIs and the Bad Taliban are the ones who are killing the Amrikans similarly in Syria n Iraq we too have good Daesh & Bad Daesh.

The once the Amrikans are wasting n killing are Bad and the ones they are Air Lifting are Good. Amrikans are so confused with their wars. 17 tears in Afghanistan, decades in Middle East.
