On Thursday morning, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) annihilated an entire convoy of ISIS vehicles which were suspected of heading towards Tabqa Airbase in western Raqqa to reinforce the frontline there.

The Islamic State convoy consisted of 15 motorcycles with 2 fighters on each bike and a further five Toyota cars full of ISIS militants.

Effectively, around 50 ISIS fighters were wiped out in a single blow yesterday.

The vehicles were first spotted traveling from the Dakwah area in eastern Damascus, but since apprehended by airstrikes near Saknah, an ISIS-held desert town east of Palmyra.

Syrian jets operating from Dumayr Airbase were responsible for the succesful aerial operation, according to information obtained by Al-Masdar News.

Lately, the Islamic State has faced big problems in northern Syria with its forces losing ground on three separate frontlines; Azaz, Manbij and western Raqqa.

At the latter frontline, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has advanced 50 kilometers along the Ithriya-Raqqa road since beginning its offensive last week.

Subsequently, government forces now pose a serious threat to the Islamic State’s capital in Raqqa, although the more immediate objective seems to be the capture of Tabqa Airbase, a symbolic site west of the provincial capital.

Although a welcome news, makes it hardly a MASSIVE convoy?
