BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Russian Aerospace Forces have begun a nonstop air attack against the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in the northeastern countryside of the Al-Sweida Governorate.
Russian jets reportedly began their attack this afternoon, following a powerful assault that was launched by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF) near the Safa Canyon of northeast Al-Sweida.
The Russian airstrikes have proven effective thus far, as the Islamic State terrorists have been forced to pull back from several posts in order to avoid mounting casualties.
Meanwhile, at the southwestern countryside of Daraa, the Russian Aerospace Forces have resumed their air attack against the ISIS-affiliated Jaysh Khaled bin Walid terrorists.
According to a military source in Daraa, the Russian Aerospace Forces have launched at least a dozen airstrikes over the Islamic State’s positions in the Yarmouk Basin region, with the primary target being the terrorist group’s defenses near the town of Shajarah.
The reemergence of Russian airstrikes in southern Syria come just days after the Islamic State forces carried out a deadly terrorist attack that resulted in the death of more than 250 people in the Al-Sweida Governorate.
