BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force carried out a large number of airstrikes over the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Friday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) defenses around the military airport and Thardeh Mountains.

Syrian jets were able zero-in on several Islamic State targets in the Thardeh Mountains after drone footage provided them the necessary coordinates of the terrorist group’s positions.

Video footage of the Syrian Air Force’s airstrikes was captured by local journalists, showing their jets destroying several Islamic State trenches near the military airport and Thardeh Mountains of western Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian Air Force has intensified their airstrikes over the Deir Ezzor Governorate in order to combat the large presence of Islamic State fighters that recently traveled to this desert province to participate in the terrorist group’s upcoming offensive.

Debe ser con mayor intensidad, esta es la zona mas heroica la resistencia del ejercito Sirio, rodeado y aislado del resto del País.

Better use napalm or cluster bombs in such case. Actually, I’m really surprised neither SyAAF nor Russia use napalm, well, although not banned, all western countries have also put it out of their arsenals, including the US, thus, this was highly replaced by thermobarics but napalm works under rain and has much more psychological effect than anything else : anyone fears 2 things more than anything else : to be burnt alive and to be eaten alive.

Rebels demanded ransom from their poor parents and when they could not pay the ransom all these teenage kids were executed Rebel thugs injected diesel fuel into their arteries. So much for a popular uprising for democracy? Every time you read the word “Rebel” please change the script in your head…They are just murderous thugs. That is all they are. They have no higher calling.… Read more »
