The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is under attack from above, but this time it is not from the U.S. led “Anti-ISIS Coalition” or the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF); no, the terrorist group is being bombarded by the numerous fighters jets of the Russian Air Force that are patrolling the skies above Syria’s eastern countryside.

In a matter of 48 hours, ISIS has been struck by the Russian Air Force inside the provincial capital of Al-Raqqa and its surrounding area at least 25 times and each time, the aforementioned air force targets an imperative site that was relatively untouched by the U.S. led Anti ISIS Coalition; this includes the Tabaqa Military Airport and Tabaqa National Hospital – ISIS’ primary military base and headquarters in Al-Raqqa.

With nowhere to run inside Syria, the terrorist group has been forced to flee to safer quarters outside of the country; this was confirmed by the Shaytat Tribesmen in the Deir Ezzor Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a military source from the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard in Deir Ezzor, the Shaytat Tribesmen have reported that a large convoy of ISIS fighters and their families have begun their exodus from the cities of Al-Mayadeen and AbuKamaal to the nearby Iraqi province of Al-‘Anbar in anticipation for the increased Russian airstrikes inside Deir Ezzor.

Recently, the Russian Air Force has specifically targeted the terrorist group inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate, striking ISIS sites along the imperative Deir Ezzor-Raqqa International Highway and Al-Mayadeen-Deir Ezzor Road.

So, where was NATO and US striking all this long months? Or were they paving a path towards ASSAD?
