The ISIS Hunters and the 5th Assault Corps in general are well known for their close cooperation with the Russian military and Russian private military contractors operating in the country.
The redeployment of this force to the province of Deir Ezzor amid the increased ISIS attacks in the area shows that the Syrina military is not going to ignore ISIS terrorists operating in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert.
Last week, reports appeared that the Syrian military and Iranian-backed groups started preparations for a large-scale military opeartion against the remaining ISIS terrorists in the desert area.
