BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – The Syrian and Russian air forces have been very active, today, hunting down Islamic State (ISIL) fighters across the country.

Since the morning hours, the Syrian and Russian air forces have intensified their airstrikes over central Syria, hitting terrorist targets between the east Homs towns of Sukhnah and Arak.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian and Russian air forces specifically targeted the Islamic State’s gathering points near the T-3 Pumping Station, Latiybah Al-Gharbiyah, and Arak Gas Fields, destroying scores of armored vehicles.

In addition to the destruction, the Syrian and Russian air forces have also killed a large number of Islamic State terrorists that are attempting to fight off the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the Arak Gas Fields.

Meanwhile, in the eastern countryside of Hama, the Syrian and Russian air forces have carried out more than 15 airstrikes over the towns of Abu Habilat, Qalib Al-Thor, and Jana Al-Albawi.

East of Homs, the Syrian Air Force carried out dozens of airstrikes over the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, striking the Islamic State’s positions at Jabal Thardeh, Wadi Thardeh, Al-Jafra, Huwijat Qate’, and Al-Maward.
