Russian Air Forces targeted a large column of Islamic State militants, vehicles and large calibre weapons originally headed for the Syrian city of Deir-ez-Zor, Monday, killing at least 200 militants and destroying more than 20 all-terrain vehicles equipped with heavy weapons and mortars.
Following the airstrikes, militant groups are reportedly attempting to regroup and equip their remaining... Еще foothold in Syria.
Deir ez-Zor has been under siege by self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS) since the group launched an offensive on the city in May 2015. Some 125,000 civilians reportedly live in the city under dire humanitarian conditions.
Last week, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) together with the Russian Air Forces retook the city of Al-Sukhnah from IS control, in what is believed will open the way to the besieged IS enclave of Deir ez-Zor.
