The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) had a rough day inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Sunday, as the Syrian and Russian Air Forces relentlessly pounded their positions inside this desert province in eastern Syria.

However, unlike their previous airstrikes inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Russian and Syrian air raids were fixated on specific targets that are pertinent to the terrorist group’s success at the provincial capital and the Military Airport.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Air Force was provided satellite imagery from their Russian military advisors that revealed the location of ISIS’ primary training camp inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate; this prompted the Syrian Air Force to carry out several airstrikes over this base at the town of Al-Shamaytiyah in the Al-Tabous Moutnains.

According to a military source inside the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, the training camp was reportedly destroyed – along with the terrorists inside the camp – by the Syrian Air Force’s airstrikes.

The source added that many of the casualties were reportedly Chechen, Tunisian, Moroccan, Libyan, Saudi, and Iraqi.

ISIS attempted to make-up for their losses at their training camp by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the village of Al-Muri’iyah; however, this assault ended in disaster for the terrorist group, as the SAA’s 137th Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division killed 17 enemy combatants, including “Abu Usama Al-Tunisi (Tunisian), Issa Nouress Al-Utaibah, and Yousif ‘Abdel-Qader Moussa.
