On November 28, pro-government forces started a new combing operation in the southern and western countryside of Syria’s Deir Ezzor.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the National Defense Forces are combing the outskirts of the town of al-Mayadin, while the Palestinian al-Quds Brigade is operating in southern Deir Ezzor.

The London-based monitoring group said the Syrian Arab Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Forces were backing the operation.

Besides the ongoing operation in Deir Ezzor, Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on ISIS terrorists and their hideouts in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle.

“The [aerial] attack which started in the early hours of the morning and is still underway,” the SOHR said in a report. “No information has been reported on the losses.”

The SOHR claimed that 10 Syrian service members and 16 terrorists of ISIS were killed in clashes in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle over the last few days.

ISIS terrorists, who are trapped in the Homs desert, have been working to expand their influence to Deir Ezzor, Hama, Aleppo and Raqqa for a while now. The terrorists are reportedly receiving support from U.S.-backed fighters based in the nearby area of al-Tanaf.
