BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:15 A.M.) – The Russian military unleashed another vicious assault against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) in the Deir Ezzor countryside this week, targeting the terrorist group’s positions in the key city of Al-Mayadeen.

Using Kalbar missiles, the Russian military repeatedly hit the Islamic State’s positions in Al-Mayadeen, inflicting heavy damage on the terrorist group’s positions.

Video footage of the Russian military striking the Islamic State’s de facto capital was captured by the Russian Ministry of Defense on Thursday:

This missile attack on Thursday helped pave the way for the Syrian Arab Army and their allies to advance within 2km of the Islamic State’s capital, marking the government’s closest approach to Al-Mayadeen since withdrawing from the city in the early stages of the war.

Bravo Bravo Bravo…
Big difference with the american action against ISIS pretending to fight them without using neither one tomahawk missile against them from the beginning of the war, even when american could use more than 100 tomahawk missile in its attack against the Glorious Syrian army to punish them for a fake chemical attack organized by the same american puppets.
d**n american hypocrisy of all time.
