The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) received a rude awakening inside the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Friday morning, as the Russian Air Force’s fighter jets destroyed the imperative “Al-Siyasiyah Bridge” (Political Bridge) that sits over the Euphrates River, which links the city’s east and west districts.

For ISIS, this marks the second time in 14 months that their main supply route to the provincial capital has been obstructed; this bridge was originally destroyed last year, when the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard loaded the suspension bridge with IED materials and detonated the explosives.

The Russian Federation’s Defense Minister posted the video of their fighter jets bombarding ISIS’ positions inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate, displaying the destruction of the Al-Siyasiyah Bridge.

As a result of the Al-Siyasiyah Bridge’s destruction, the terrorist group is now trapped inside the provincial capital without access to necessary reinforcements and supplies from the east district; this creates a relatively difficult situation for the ISIS fighters besieging the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, as they are now at the mercy of the Russian Air Force’s airstrikes.

Recently, ISIS launched several attacks on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, forcing the Russian Air Force to concentrate many of their fighter jets to this area in order to forestall the terrorist group’s progress at this front.
