As Syrian President Bashar al-Assad announced that the war will not be over until terrorism is cleansed from Syrian soil, the Syrian Arab Army continues to make substantial gains in the last main ISIS hotbed of Deir ez-Zor.
ISIS terrorists were recently caught by Syrian intelligence trying to flee their garrison at Aqerbat and head towards their comrades in Deir ez-Zor.
However, Russia’s Aerospace Forces prohibited them from doing so with an attack that pounded an armed ISIS convoy.
The Russian Defense Ministry has stated,
“Following successful operations by Syrian troops, the last supply route used by the militants to deliver weapons, ammunition and material in the vicinity of Aqerbat is now within reach of the Syrian military’s firepower.
To prevent Islamic State militants from escaping to Deir ez-Zor, the Russian Air Force deploys drones for round-the-clock aerial surveillance, as well as detects and destroys armored vehicles, pickup trucks and other transport used by terrorists”.
Now watch as the terrorists of ISIS are obliterated from above by Russian air power.
