Central Syrian Insurgency: ISIS Attacks Continue Despite Russian, Syrian Airstrikes

Illustrative image

More than 110 airstrikes have targeted ISIS hideouts in Syria’s central region, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on June 2.

At least 100 of the airstrikes were carried out by warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS), while the rest were conducted by Syrian military helicopters. The airstrikes targeted hideouts of ISIS cells in the outskirts of the towns of al-Sholah in western Deir Ezzor and al-Sukhnah in eastern Homs.

“Russian reconnaissance planes flew over different parts of the Syrian desert as operations to locate ISIS cells were ongoing,” the SOHR said in a report.

Last month, at least 27 ISIS terrorists were killed and 41 others were wounded in central Syria as a result of Russian airstrikes.

Despite the VKS’ intense bombardment, ISIS cells in central Syria continue to launch attacks against government troops.

On June 1, ISIS terrorists targeted a vehicle carrying supplies for the Syrian National Defense Forces near the town of al-Salamiyah in eastern Hama with an improvised explosive device. According to the SOHR, a pro-government fighter was killed and four others were injured in the attack.

ISIS mains stronghold in central Syria is the Homs desert, which lays between eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor. However, due to Syrian and Russian military pressure most of the terrorist group’s recent attacks were in eastern Hama, southern Aleppo and southern Raqqa.

No one can stop us, we are god’s chosen people, our brothers are Wahhabi+yankees, and their dogs such as Kurds. We will win 😤. #retared #0.06Jewish #BiBiComeBack? #HeFukedMyMotherAndDidn’tPayHerYet

You are not even a Hebrew. You are an imposter. I am not your brother, I am human.


He’s an obvious parody account.

The American air force world only resupply them.


The Jews’ Z(C)IA mercenaries are holding on longer than expected. Gonna take a little longer for the Jews to subjugate this portion of “Greater Israel.”


Maybe if Putin won’t shake MERDolfgan pat, – MERDolfgan with ITS UNHUMANS are the ISIS and al qaida sponsors- they would have been estinguished. Where the UNHUMANS are, there are troubles and from there the NAZISLAMICS deploy. Curious coincidence?

Until Russia Facilitates arrest of SAS and Mossad sabotage teams commuting from Abu-Kamal, Jordan and Israel acting as ISIS in Syria, bombing of Dumb recruits in Syrian caves will not make any difference.

Me parece importante que Rusia y sus aliados deban de cambiar las tácticas, el bombardeo con aviones no me parece efectivo, creo que para este tipo de operación se necesitan municiones merodeadores, drones suicidas, ya que es más económico que utilizar la fuerza aérea y asi poder cazar efectivamente a estos agentes de la CIA y el Mosad israeli

And the attacks will continue until the sources is cut-off. That is why all these airstrikes are actually useless, a waste of resources.


Hope Russia had learned the lessons from the past and all this doesn’t end on another fiasco Afghanistan style.


The idea that Russia could bomb ISIS cells – which have a safe haven at al Tanf – into submission was always overoptimistic. Unfortunately ISIS is far too useful an Amerikastani tool to ever give up on.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
