BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 P.M.) – For the third day in a row, the Russian Air Force has launched a plethora of airstrikes over the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions in eastern Syria.
Led by their Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force launched several airstrikes, today, over the Al-Safa and Badiya Al-Sham regions of eastern Syria.
These Russian airstrikes paved the way for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies to make a significant advance through two different Islamic State pockets.
Among the biggest advances made by the Syrian Army on Saturday took place in the Al-Safa region, where the latter managed to seize several points from the Islamic State terrorists.
Since entering into peace talks with Turkey on the Idlib situation, the Russian Air Force has concentrated their efforts on the Islamic State’s last pockets in eastern Syria.
In a matter of 72 hours, the Russian Air Force has launched over 40 airstrikes above the Islamic State’s positions, causing considerable damage to the terrorist group’s fortifications in the process.
