On Friday, the Syrian Arab Army’s large-scale offensive at the Al-Sha’ar Gas Fields was put on the back-burner in favor of the Russian Air Force’s powerful aerial campaign over the east Homs countryside.

Russian fighter jets reportedly conducted several airstrikes over the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) hideouts along the Raqqa-Homs Highway, killing a large number of terrorist combatants on Friday.

Local sources at the T-4 Military Military Air Force confirmed the high volume of airstrikes over east Homs, adding that the Russian fighter jets could be seen attacking ISIS as far east as the Deir Ezzor border.

More importantly, the Russian airstrikes proved to be the difference maker in the Jabal Bardeh region of east Homs, as the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces”  were able to liberate a number of sites from the Islamic State terrorists.
