BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The bombardment of the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last stronghold in the southeastern countryside of Al-Raqqa has begun, as Russian jets pound the terrorist group’s positions.

Russian jets flying out of the Homs Governorate carried out more than ten airstrikes already today, hitting the Islamic State’s positions inside the town of Ma’adan.

With the Syrian Army and Raqqawi tribes now within 4km of Ma’adan, the Russian Air Force has turned their attention to this town in order to weaken the terrorist group’s fortifications.

Ma’adan is a strategic town that is located along the Raqqa-Deir Ezzor Highway; its proximity to the Deir Ezzor Governorate border makes it a top priority for the Syrian Army’s High Command.
