The Russian Air Force has been relentless over the Al-Raqqa Governorate, striking the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) repeatedly at the city of Tabaqa; this has left the terrorist group with very little time to evade the swarming Russian fighter jets that were pounding their positions.
According to a source from the Syrian Air Defense, the Russian Air Force has struck the Tabaqa National Hospital and Tabaqa Military Airport in the Al-Raqqa Governorate’s western countryside, destroying the military barracks after two airstrikes above this large military base.
The source added that the Russian airstrikes did considerable damage to the Tabaqa Military Airport and Tabaqa National Hospital; these two sites are imperative to the terrorist group because one is their primary military base and the other is their primary headquarters in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
In addition to their airstrikes inside Tabaqa, the Russian Air Force struck ISIS’ positions at the Al-‘Ajrawi Farms; this farm area is located outside of the Tabaqa Military Airport and used by the terrorist group as a weapons supply depot.
To the east of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, the Russian Air Force continued their airstrikes above the Al-Hasakah Governorate, attacking the terrorist group at the cities of Al-Shadadi and Al-Houl, while the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) struck an ISIS convoy along the Deir Ezzor-Hasakah Highway.
