The Russian Air Force continued their large-scale bombing campaign in northern Syria on Monday, striking the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at a number of sites inside the Al-Raqqa, Hama, and Aleppo Governorates.
According to a military source from the Syrian Air Defense, the Russian Air Force began their aerial assault in the ISIS heartland after their reconnaissance flights reportedly captured footage of a large training camp belonging to the terrorist group inside the village of Kassra Al-Sheikh, which is located in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
The Russian Air Force struck ISIS at Kassra Al-Sheikh around 9;30 A.M. on Monday morning, destroying the terrorist group’s training camp before they turned their attention to the Tabaqa Military Airport and Tabaqa National Hospital.
Following their airstrikes in the Al-Raqq Governorate, the Russian Air Force conducted another air raid inside the ISIS-stronghold of ‘Aqayrbat in the Hama Governorate, where they struck a terrorist convoy on the road to the imperative city of Al-Salamiyah.
The city of ‘Aqayrbat in the Hama Governorate’s eastern countryside was relatively untouched before the Russian airstrikes this month; it was often neglected by the U.S. led “Anti-ISIS Coalition” in the past.
ISIS was given no relief towards the latter part of Monday, as the Russian Air Force carried out seven more airstrikes inside the Deir Hafer Plains of the Aleppo Governorate; these airstrikes are specifically targeting the terrorist group along the Deir Hafer Highway that leads to the Kuweires Military Airport.
