BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has carried out several airstrikes over the eastern countryside of Hama recently, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) positions near their stronghold of ‘Uqayrbat.

Video footage released by the Syrian Free Press this week shows the Russian Air Force obliterating an Islamic State base near ‘Uqayrbat on June 15th:

‘Uqayrbat is considered the Islamic State’s most important stronghold in the Hama Governorate; its location along the terrorist group’s main oil supply route not only makes the town valuable militarily, but also, economically.

The Syrian Arab Army is currently engaged in an offensive to reach ‘Uqayrbat in a new bid to expel the Islamic State forces from the town and region.
