The Russian Air Force carried out a heavy bombardment on ISIS’s positions in the Euphrates River Valley in Eastern Deir Ezzur, inflicting major losses on the terrorist group near the border with Iraq, field sources reported on Tuesday.
The sources said that the fighter jets targeted and destroyed a main position of the ISIS terrorists on the Eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
The report added the ISIS suffered heavy casualties as a result of the Russian attack.
Rumors were spread on Monday that the US had bombed the Syrian Army’s positions in Eastern Deir Ezzur; however, a military source told the MNA that the attack never occurred.
The alleged US attack on the Syrian Army was likely confused with the Russian assault on ISIS’s positions in Eastern Deir Ezzur.
Also the U.S forces had established a new base in Southeastern Deir Ezzur and dispatched weapons and military equipment to the region.
The sources said that the US forces built a new and advanced military base in al-Omar oilfield in Southeastern Deir Ezzur, adding that they also transferred a large volume of arms and equipment, including missiles, military vehicles and bridge equipment to the regions of their deployment in Koniko oilfield, al-Omar oilfield and al-Jafreh.
