On April 11, the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) resumed its combat operations against ISIS cells in Syria’s central region.
Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on the terrorist group’s hideouts in the following areas:
- The outskirts of the town of al-Sukhanh in eastern Homs;
- The administrative border between Raqqa and Deir Ezzor;
- The Ithriyah road in eastern Hama.
According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, ISIS cells sustained some serious losses as a result of the Russian airstrikes. Many caves and dens, where terrorists used to take shelter, were wiped out.
Syrian government forces are currently carrying out several combing operations in the central region. In spite of this, ISIS cells are still active in the region. On April 11, a fighter of the Palestinian al-Quds Brigade was killed by terrorists near al-Sukhnah.
The VKS support has been vital to the success of recent operations against ISIS in Syria’s central region. Hundreds of terrorists countinue to operate in the region, mainly in the Homs desert between Homs and Deir Ezzor.
