On August 20, the al-Quds Brigade, a Palestinian faction that has been supporting the Damascus government since its formation in 2013, shared a video documenting one of its recent combing operations in central Syria.
The video shows al-Quds Brigade fighters uncovering and destroying several hideouts of ISIS cells in an unspecified part of the central region. Several vehicles of the terrorist group were also destroyed.
The al-Quds Brigade, which is reportedly backed by Russia, has been operating against ISIS cells in the central region side by side with Syrian government forces for more than two years now. The group sustained some heavy losses on the hands of the terrorist group.
Over the last few days, ISIS cells launched several attacks in central Syria. An officer of the Syrian Arab Army and an Iraqi fighter were killed.
The Russian Aerospace Forces have been also supporting the ongoing operations against ISIS cells in central Syria. Russian warplanes conduct reconnaissance and combat operations in the region on a regular basis. Last week, a Russian drone crashed in the region.
The situation in central Syria improved over the last year. Nevertheless, more efforts and time are still needed to end ISIS presence in the region.
