The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) had a rough night on Sunday, thanks in large part to the Russian Air Force who carried out several airstrikes over the terrorist group’s positions inside the Al-Raqqa Governorate in northern Syria.
According to a senior officer from the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF), the Russians struck ISIS’ positions at the oil rich town of Al-Mansourah in southern Al-Raqqa, destroying a number of armored vehicles and the terrorist group’s camp that housed several hundred fighters.
The source added that the Russian Air Force carried out a total of 3 air raids above the Al-Mansourah oil refineries on Sunday night.
Meanwhile, near the provincial capital of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, the Russian Air Force launched 2 powerful air raids above the Tal Simon Camp, destroying this entire ISIS site that was used to house the terrorists attacking Tal Abyad.
The Russian Air Force concluded their airstrikes over the Al-Raqqa Governorate on Sunday when they destroyed another ISIS camp inside the village of Taweel’at in the northern part of the province.
While the Russian Air Force was busy attacking ISIS inside the Al-Raqqa Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham (Desert Hawks Brigade), Fouj Al-Joulan (Golani Regiment), and the pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” – continued their advance along the Salamiyah-Raqqa Road, attacking the terrorist group’s defenses at Point 7 in the Hama-Raqqa countryside.
Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are advancing from two different points towards the imperative Tabaqa Military Airport in the Al-Raqqa Governorate – they are approximately 35 km west of this base.
