BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force continued their aerial campaign over vast Syrian Desert on Saturday, targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) primary oil supply route that stretches from eastern Homs to the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

Russian jets began launching these airstrikes over central Syria at 3:30 A.M (Damascus Time) and they would remain non-stop until 10 A.M. this morning, when they shifted their attention to the western Palmyra countryside.

According to a military source at the T-4 Airport in eastern Homs, the Russian jets targeted the Islamic State’s positions at the gas rich towns of Sukhanah and ‘Arak, resulting in the destruction of several supply vehicles destined for Raqqa.

The Russian Air Force constantly monitors this oil route in central Syria to make sure the Islamic State terrorists are unable to transport these reserves to their capital in the northern part of the country.
