The Syrian Air Force targeted heavily a long military column of ISIL terrorists along Deir Ezzur-Raqqa road, destroying a number of vehicles and killing their crew.
The army aircraft launched heavy bombings on ISIL’s movements along Deir Ezzur-Raqqa road, destroying at least four heavy military vehicles and killing or wounding a number of terrorists.
The army’s artillery units, backed up by the country’s air force, targeted ISIL’s positions in Huweija Sakar in Eastern Deir Ezzur, killing and wounding several militants.
A military source, meantime, said that Abu Qa’aqa Albaniayee and Safouran al-Yaseen, two ISIL commanders, were killed in the army operation in the town of al-Mouhassan in Southeastern Deir Ezzur.
Also, the army units engaged in fierce clashes with ISIL in the Southwestern outskirts of Deir Ezzur, in the village of al-Baqaliyeh, Regiment 137 base, Panorama base and in al-Maqaber (cemetery) region, inflicting heavy casualties on the terrorists.
Relevant reports said on Monday that a number of ISIL terrorists were killed and others were injured in the Syrian air raids on their positions in the neighborhoods of Khasarat, al-Kanamat and al-Omal, the area near the Airport, al-Maqaber (cemetery) region, Panorama base, al-Thardah mountain and the villages of al-Baqaliyeh, Safira Tahtani, al-Hosseiniyeh, Albu Leil and the town of al-Mouhassan.
The Russian fighter jets also hit a number of ISIL bases in the towns of Gharaneej (East of Deir Ezzur), al-Sour (North of the city) and Huweijet Saqar (Southeast of the city), destroying the strongholds and multiple vehicles. Early reports said more than 20 terrorists have been killed in the raid.
The Russian aircraft also targeted the command center of al-Wahda al-Irshadiyah Building in the town of Baqrs, an important base and venue of ISIL commander’s meetings.
The identification, location, designation and marking of all ISIL targets struck in the raids last night was the result of a rigorous intelligence gathering by pro-government forces which included the use of drones and local spies in the Deir Ezzur area.
An army unit also clashed with two groups of terrorists who attacked their positions in the Heart Hospital and Furat al-Sham Hotel as well as al-Movazafeen neighborhood, killing and wounding scores of militants.
