New round of attacks | Russian fighter jets execute new airstrikes on ISIS hideouts in Al-Raqqah desert

Russian fighter jets executed several airstrikes yesterday on ISIS hideouts in Al-Rusafah desert in southern Al-Raqqah countryside, but no casualties were reported.

 

Syrian desert has witnessed escalating attacks by ISIS members and armed clashes between regime forces and ISIS members, along with Russian airstrikes on the desert.

 

Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that armed clashes erupted between the 5th Corps and “Liwaa Al-Quds” on one hand, and members of ISIS on the other in the area between Al-Kaum and Jabal Al-Bashri in Deir Ezzor countryside.

 

This coincided with several airstrikes executed by Russian fighter jets on ISIS hideouts in the region.
