The Russian Air Force has continued their wide-scale aerial assault against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) militants in eastern Syria, targeting several hot-zones for this terrorist group’s military activities inside the Homs, Hama, and Deir Ezzor governorates.
On Tuesday, the Russian Air Force carried out a powerful series of airstrikes over the strategic desert-city of Palmyra (Tadmur), destroying a large number of armored vehicles and killing several ISIS terrorists in order to propel the Syrian Armed Forces at this front in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside.
Among the many targets for the Russian Air Force were the oil and gas fields of Sukhanah, which are used by ISIS to bolster their oil reserves before they sell these barrels on the black market.
The Russian Air Force has done a tremendous job in disrupting the ISIS oil trade, striking several transport convoys from eastern Syria to the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
As a result of their relentless airstrikes, the Russian Air Force has played an integral role in the terrorist group’s hyper-inflated oil prices.
