The Russian Air Force has caught the so called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) off-guard in east Hama, striking their main supply route from the Al-Raqqa Governorate to the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) on a number of occasions today.
However, the latest airstrike by the Russian Air Force has proven to be the most lethal, destroying an entire ISIS convoy of reinforcements that were tasked to back-up their exhausted fighters at the Palmyra front in the eastern countryside of Homs.
According to a military source, the Russian Air Force caught the ISIS convoy attempting to make their way from the large village of ‘Aqayrbat in east Homs to the city of Palmyra.
Before the ISIS terrorists could leave the ‘Aqayrbat countryside, they were struck by the Russian Air Force, leaving several of their fighters dead and their vehicles destroyed.
The total number ISIS terrorists killed by the Russian airstrike in ‘Aqayrbat is unknown; however, the terrorist group’s reinforcements did not arrive to Palmyra like they were supposed to.
