BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – Despite the poor whether on Friday, the Russian Aerospace Forces continued to offer air support to their allies from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.
According to a military source in the provincial capital of Homs, Russian attack choppers inflicted heavy damage on the Islamic State (ISIS) defenses near Al-Sukhnah, while also killing scores of terrorists in the process.
As a result of these Russian strikes, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside Hezbollah and Liwaa Al-Fatemiyoun (Afghan-Iranian paramilitary), seized several points from the Islamic State forces near the strategic Deir Ezzor Highway.
In addition to aiding the Syrian Army near Al-Sukhnah, the Russian Aerospace Forces launched several strikes on the Islamic State’s positions in the southeastern countryside of Homs.
The Russian attack in southeast Homs helped the Syrian Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) to forestall the Islamic State advance near the strategic 16th Air Defense Regiment.
