Aircraft of the Syrian Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Forces continue their campaign to purge ISIS cells hiding in the central Syrian desert.
According to pro-opposition sources, during the last few days, over 100 airstrikes hit ISIS targets in the provinces of Deir Ezzor, Homs and Hama.
Pro-government sources also claim that units of the Syrian Army and local pro-government militias conducted raids against ISIS cells in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, in the southern countryside of Palmyra and south of al-Mayadin.
ISIS terrorists hiding in the desert area still remain a notable security threat for the Damascus government because ISIS cells somehow prefer to attack government targets only. At the same time, US forces and US-backed militants deployed in the area of al-Tanf experience peace and prosperity despite the close proximity of ISIS terrorists.
