Russian jets halt their operations in Syrian desert for four days

SOHR sources have confirmed that Russian fighter jets have suspended their airstrikes on the Syrian desert for four days, as the latest airstrikes were documented on December 14. On the other hand, ISIS cells continued their attacks on positions of regime forces and their proxy militias in several areas of the Syrian desert.

Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that ISIS members attacked positions of the regime-backed National Defence Forces (NDF) in Al-Hamra area in Al-Mayadeen desert in Deir Ezzor countryside. The attack left four NDF members injured, some seriously, and they were taken to Deir Ezzor military hospital.

 

On the other hand, ISIS members sneaked into a military post of the Russian-backed fifth Corps nearby Maadan Atiq town in eastern Al-Raqqah, capturing three members of the Corps. Meanwhile, SOHR sources reported seeing regime forces in Maadan desert on high alert, along with searching for ISIS cells.

 

On December 14, SOHR sources reported that Russian fighter jets renewed their intensive airstrikes on the Syrian desert, targeting caves and hideouts of ISIS in the western desert of Deir Ezzor and Al-Raqqa desert. These airstrikes left casualties.

 

Two days earlier, Observatory sources reported that Russian fighter jets executed eight airstrikes on Al-Masrab desert in Deir Ezzor countryside, after they had suspended their aerial operations for over 24 hours.

 

On the other hand, regime forces and their proxies brought in military reinforcement to their positions in Al-Masrab desert following ISIS attack on positions of regime forces and the Palestinian Liwaa Al-Quds. The attack had left nearly 25 regime soldiers and loyalists dead and wounded.
