Over the last 48 hours, the Russian Air Force has targeted the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) with relentless airstrikes above the provincial capital of the Al-Raqqa Governorate and the terrorist group’s stronghold inside the Deir Hafer Plains in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

On Sunday morning, the Russian Air Force struck ISIS again with a flurry of airstrikes above the Tabaqa Military Airport and the Tabaqa National Hospital, destroying another weapons depot belonging to the terrorist located inside the storage facility that is situated to the north of the military barracks.

Meanwhile, to the east of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, the Russian Air Force propelled the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” into the village of ‘Ayn Sabil near the Kuweries Military Airport after repeated airstrikes along the Deir Hafer Highway; specifically, the Thermal Plant that has been turned into an ISIS base.

Fierce firefights are still ongoing between the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS at the village of ‘Ayn Sabil; this battle has recently intensified with the arrival of the Syrian Arab Army’s Cheetah Forces and the National Defense Forces (NDF) to the Al-Safeera District in east Aleppo.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Russian airstrikes have killed over 75 terrorists in the last 48 hours, as they continue this massive aerial campaign in northern Syria.

The terrorist group has been immobile in northern Syria as of late; this is a direct result of the Russian Air Force’s prevalent airstrikes that are hitting any ISIS convoy making their way across the vast desert highways around the country.

The evidence shows that US and allies war against terrorist groups were all a show. They are financing and supporting these groups. Thanks for Russian and Putin to stand against these jockers.
