BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force has played an integral role in the ongoing destruction of the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) in Syria.
Using their mighty aerial arsenal, the Russian Air Force has relentlessly targeted the Islamic State’s positions in central Syria, destroying several installations belonging to the terrorist group in both the Homs and Hama governorates.
On Sunday, the Syrian Free News channel on YouTube released footage of the Russian Air Force destroying a number of Islamic State facilities across the Syrian Desert. Unique footage: ISIS facilities burning after the strikes of Russian aviation.
Since oil production is the Islamic State’s economic back-bone in both Syria and Iraq, the Russian and Syrian air forces have made it a priority to continue to target the terrorist group’s supply routes and refineries in the central Syria.
