The Russian military presence in Syria has paid dividends for the Syrian Armed Forces, as the exchange of military intelligence has improved the latter’s overall effectiveness against the Islamist rebels and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) over the last two weeks of battle.

On Monday morning, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) – in coordination with the Russian Air Force – launched a series of powerful airstrikes above the ISIS capital of Raqqa City, targeting a number of the terorrist group’s sites along the vast Raqqa-Deir Ezzor International Highway and the Raqqa-Aleppo Highway.

According to military source from the Syrian Air Defense, the Syrian Air Force conducted 14 airstrikes above the Azeri Camp in the Al-Raqqa Governorate’s eastern countryside, resulting in the destruction of the site and the numerous armored vehicles that were located in this secluded area.

In addition to their airstrikes above the Azeri Camp, the Syrian Air Force struck ISIS’ recently constructed electrical grids outside of Raqqa City, cutting off the terrorist group’s electricity to their capital and headquarters.

These recent airstrikes have proven to be extremely effective for the Syrian Air Force, as they have successfully forestalled ISIS’ movements along the Raqqa-Deir Ezzor Highway; this has forced the terrorist group to reinforce their troops from the Al-‘Anbar Government in Iraq.

A major reason for the Syrian Air Force’s aerial success has been the satellite imagery provided to them from their Russian military advisors; these images have helped pinpoint their targets and increase their effectiveness.
