Hours after the deadly ambush in Deir Ezzor desert | Russian airstrikes targets ISIS hideouts in Al-Raqqah desert

Russian fighter jets have executed several airstrikes in the early hours of Friday morning on caves and bunkers in which ISIS members holed up in Al-Raqqah desert, amid ongoing flights by fighter jets over the desert. However, no casualties have been reported so fare.


It is worth noting this aerial operation by Russian aircraft on the Syrian desert is the first of its kind in months.


Earlier today, ISIS carried out the most violent attack on regime forces in 2023, where ISIS members ambushed a regime military bus on the road to T2 in Al-Mayadeen desert in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, killing 23 regime soldiers and injuring ten others, while the fate of tens others remains unknown.
