BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – For the first time since September, the Russian forces are preparing to launch airstrikes against the terrorist groups inside Syria, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News on Thursday.

According to the military source, the Russian Air Force and Navy are preparing to unleash a massive assault against the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in southern and eastern Syria.

The source added that the Russian attack will be conducted in conjunction with the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) offensives in the Al-Safa volcanic region (southern Syria) and Badiya Al-Sham region (eastern Syria).

The Russian Air Force temporarily halted their strikes on the Al-Safa region in order to convince Daesh to handover the Syrian civilians they took hostage in the Al-Sweida province.

However, Daesh repeatedly reneged on the agreements and forced the Syrian and Russian delegations to walk out of the negotiations with the terrorist group in Al-Safa.

Making matters worse for Daesh, they no longer have the hostages anymore, which was a major bargaining chip for them during the negotiations.

This means the Russian and Syrian forces will conduct their attacks with full force, as the only people remaining in the Al-Safa region are the Islamic State terrorists.
