The Russian and Syrian air forces have launched their most powerful series of airstrikes over the Al-Raqqa Governorate on Saturday morning, hitting several Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) targets between the provincial capital and the city of Tabaqa.
According to a senior officer from the Syrian Air Defense, the Russian and Syrian air forces have struck the ISIS courthouse, Faculty of Arts building (weapons depot), the Al-Fardous District, Al-Tawleed Hospital (ISIS base), and several other military targets belonging to the terrorist group in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
The source added that Russian and Syrian fighter jets have not yet dissipated the frequency of their airstrikes.
This latest air campaign over the Al-Raqqa Governorate is meant to disrupt ISIS’ main supply route from their capital (Raqqa City) to the city of Palmyra (Tadmur).
The Syrian Armed Forces and their allies have begun a massive offensive in the Homs Governroate’s eastern countryside to liberate the city of Palmyra; it is currently ongoing.
