The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched a powerful series of airstrikes in the Deir Ezzor countryside on Saturday, targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) positions in the Al-Jalaliyah and Al-Husseiniyah districts.
According to a military source at the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, the Syrian Air Force struck ISIS’ headquarters in the northwestern part of the provincial capital (Al-Jalaliyah), destroying the entire command-and-control center while also killing a large number of terrorists in the process.
Meanwhile, in the Palmyra countryside, the Syrian Armed Forces advanced along the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor Highway, capturing more territory from the ISIS terrorists near the village of ‘Arak.
South of ‘Arak, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” continued their push towards the T-3 Pumping Station, striking ISIS’ positions in this vast desert area.
In the coming weeks; this assault in east Palmyra is expected to intensify as the Russian and Syrian air forces continue to pound ISIS’ defenses.
