BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Syrian and Russian jets have been nonstop bombing the Islamic State (ISIS) militants across the Syrian Desert today, destroying several of the terrorist group’s trenches and hideouts in order to forestall their offensive operations.

With Russian and Syrian airstrikes bogging ISIS down in Deir Ezzor and east Palmyra, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken the opportunity to regroup and prepare a large-scale counter-attack to recover what they have lost to the terrorist group over the last six days.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army has already begun military operations in western Palmyra, liberating several sites en route to the village of Al-Baridah south of the T-4 Airport.

Meanwhile, in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army is mounting a counter-offensive near the military airport in order to reclaim the cemetery, Jirayah village, and much of the Harabish District from the Islamic State militants.

If these counter-operations are successful, then the Syrian Arab Army should be in prime position to reverse all of the gains made by the terrorist group in December.

Good work, and keep it going for some more days at least.
Russian and Syrian pilots work great as a team. Keep trying to do more than “bog” them, and do serious damage to them if possible.
