ISIS resurgence | 34 regime soldiers and ISIS members killed in less than 24 hours, while regime forces sweep Aleppo-Hama-Al-Raqqah triangle
Regime jets continued bombing ISIS positions in Oqayrabat district in the eastern desert of Hama, along with regime sweeping operations in Al-Rwaydah and Jana Al-Albawi areas, searching for ISIS cells.
These developments come after yesterday’s fierce attack by ISIS members and clashes which followed it, which both left great losses on both sides.
As SOHR activists documented more fatalities, the number of ISIS members who were killed in the air and ground strikes and clashes in the past 24 hours rose to 21, while 13 regime soldiers and loyalists were killed in the same clashes.
It is worth noting that ISIS is largely active in the area of Aleppo-Hama-Al-Raqqah triangle in the Syrian desert.
Since the 24th of March 2019, SOHR has documented the killing of at least 552 regime soldiers and loyalists of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, including at least two Russians, and 127 Iranian-backed militiamen of non-Syrian nationalities. All were killed in attacks, bombings and ambushes by the “Islamic State”, west of Euphrates in the deserts of Deir Ezzor, Homs, and Al-Suwaidaa.
Also four civilians working in gas fields, two shepherds and four other people were killed and documented by SOHR in the same period, from late March 2019 until today. They were killed in attacks by ISIS cells. While 212 ISIS members were also killed in attacks and bombardment in the same period.
