BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 A.M.) – The Syrian and Russian air forces have been relentless over the Deir Ezzor countryside this morning, launching nonstop airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists near the military airport.

Russian and Syrian jets began their campaign last night, when they carried out more than 40 airstrikes between the hours of midnight and 4 A.M.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Russian and Syrian air forces were primarily targeting the Thardeh Mountains and provincial cemetery area.

The aforementioned sites are used as launching points by the Islamic State to attack the Syrian Arab Army’s (ISIS) defenses at the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.

Cant they just find a large known area of ISIS groupings, and have the RuAF drop a FOAB right on top of it??? Come on Russia, use the big hammer!

Continuar con esta estrategia pero debe usar bombas de mayor poder destructivo, en el lugar no hay presencia de civiles.
Me trae a memoria como EE.UU. llegó a matar a mas de 100 soldados Sirios, por que no hace Rusia lo mismo pero con mercenarios de ISIS.
