BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) got a rough start to the day on Tuesday, thanks in large part to the Syrian and Russian jets that were stalking their positions in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Syrian and Russian jets flying out of the Homs Governorate began the day by pounding the Islamic State’s positions in the Panorama area and Al-Hawiqah District.

Following their airstrikes on these sites, the Russian and Syrian air forces turned their attention to the eastern sector of the provincial capital and Al-Jafra village near the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.

According to a military source at the 137th Artillery Brigade’s HQ, the Syrian and Russian air forces carried out more than 15 airstrikes this morning, causing heavy damage to the Islamic State’s defenses.

Among the targeted sites for the Syrian and Russian air forces was an ammunition depot near the Al-Baghiliyah District; this supply depot would ultimately destroyed during the bombardment, the source added.

Bien, no debe descuidar esta zona hasta que lleguen soldados Sirios desde el norte y parece que en el sur no hay avance.
