Third consecutive day | Russian jets hit ISIS hideouts in Syrian desert

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Russian fighter jets have consecutively struck ISIS hideouts in the area between Al-Shula and Kabajab deserts, south of Deir Ezzor, for the third consecutive day.

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that four Russian fighter jets conducted more than fifteen raids on ISIS cells hotbeds in the desert areas of Al-Rasafah in western Al-Raqqah and Al-Shoulah in western Deir Ezzor for the second consecutive day.

The Russian attack took place while the regime forces and its proxies brought in new military reinforcement near western and southern desert areas of Deir Ezzor to carry on regular combing operations in search for ISIS cells.

The day before yesterday, SOHR said that three Russian fighter jets conducted eight raids on ISIS hideouts Al-Rasafah in western Al-Raqqah and Al-Shoulah in western Deir Ezzor.

Accordingly, the number of airstrikes by Russian jets on the Syrian desert since early December has reached 45.

This comes with the noticeable escalation of ISIS attacks across the Syrian desert, along with ongoing combing operations by regime forces and the NDF in Deir Ezzor desert.
