The Russian Air Force’s Central Command has made it a priority to destroy the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) primary revenue stream, despite the constant criticism from the western countries that are also bombing the aforementioned terrorist group in both Syria and Iraq.

On Monday morning in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Russian Air Force launched several airstrikes over the imperative cities of Palmyra and Al-Sukhanah, targeting ISIS’ large convoys of oil tankers that were making their way to the Turkish border.

However, those ISIS oil tankers never reached their intended location across the Turkish border, thanks in large part to the Russian Air Force’s powerful airstrikes that caught these transport trucks off-guard in the vast desert landscape of the Homs Governorate in eastern Syria.

According to a military source at the T-4 Military Airport in east Homs, the Russian Air Force destroyed 22 oil tankers belonging to ISIS, while also killing over 30 members of the aforementioned terrorist group before noon on Monday.

These Russian airstrikes in east Homs proved extremely effective, as ISIS was unable to make their large delivery of oil.

If Russia destroyed over 1000 in just several days in November, 22 does not seem like many – but still good to have taken place.
