The Syrian Arab Air Force launched a number of airstrikes near the Iraqi border on Sunday, striking several of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s sites along the vast Euphrates River in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

One of the targeted sites was the Buqaan Bridge that links the eastern and western banks of the Deir Ezzor Governorate near the large city of Abukamaal in the province’s southern countryside.

The Syrian Air Force struck this strategic bridge that is used by ISIS to transport supplies to their fighters combating the Syrian Armed Forces in the provincial capital.

Following the airstrikes from the Syrian Air Force, several ISIS social media activists posted photos of its destruction; these images confirmed that the Syrian Air Force did in fact obstruct the terrorist group’s primary supply route from Iraq to Deir Ezzor.

While ISIS will likely find a surrogate route to the provincial capital; this strategic bombing campaign has forced the terrorist group to seek alternative routes that will likely take longer to travel along.

In addition to the Syrian Air Force’s bombing campaign, the Russian Air Force is also participating in the battle for Deir Ezzor.

The Russian Air Force has reportedly struck several ISIS sites near the provincial capital in order to forestall their progress and allow for the Syrian Armed Forces to regroup.
