On April 11, the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) resumed its combat operations against ISIS cells in Syria’s central region.

Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on the terrorist group’s hideouts in the following areas:

  • The outskirts of the town of al-Sukhanh in eastern Homs;
  • The administrative border between Raqqa and Deir Ezzor;
  • The Ithriyah road in eastern Hama.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, ISIS cells sustained some serious losses as a result of the Russian airstrikes. Many caves and dens, where terrorists used to take shelter, were wiped out.

Syrian government forces are currently carrying out several combing operations in the central region. In spite of this, ISIS cells are still active in the region. On April 11, a fighter of the Palestinian al-Quds Brigade was killed by terrorists near al-Sukhnah.

The VKS support has been vital to the success of recent operations against ISIS in Syria’s central region. Hundreds of terrorists countinue to operate in the region, mainly in the Homs desert between Homs and Deir Ezzor.

    Russian airstrikes kill 29 IS militants in Syrian desert

    DAMASCUS, April 6 (Xinhua) — A total of 29 Islamic State (IS) militants have been killed over the past 72 hours by Russian airstrikes in the Syrian desert region, a war monitor reported on Tuesday.
    The Russian warplanes carried out around 70 airstrikes over the past 72 hours
    on positions of the IS militants in the desert region in the central province of Hama and the eastern Deir al-Zour province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    The death toll could likely rise due to the number of critically wounded militants, the Britain-based watchdog group added.

    After losing key areas across Syria, the IS militants now have a presence in the sprawling desert region in eastern Syria.

    The militants frequently carry out attacks and ambushes against Syrian government forces in the desert, prompting the Syrian and Russian warplanes to strike their positions.

    Since March 2019, a total of 1,381 Syrian soldiers and pro-government fighters have been killed by IS attacks. Also, 896 IS militants have been killed during the same period.

      Good job.
      More to follow…

    2. Jens Holm says:

      Fine. It seemes to be the best estimated numbers we have.

      Im not sure those many from ISIS are true, but “many” is.

      1. @Inc2Get says:

        No, the estimate is rather conservative. Probably more than 900. Another source reported 1100 killed and another put the figure 1000 so 900 is rather conservative.

        1. Jens Holm says:

          I dont believe in those numbers at all.

          If its by SANA they too often are a compensation for their own losses. But thks.

  2. Lone Ranger says:

    Condolences to the fallen wahabimossad and CIAisis operators.
    May they rest in pieces…

      1. Jens Holm says:

        wellknown spam. Dont open. Youi have to start all over:(

    1. Jens Holm says:

      USA has no hospiytal there. Call for an operation somewhere else. Maybe Dusty Hofman knows:)

      1. Lone Ranger says:

        No hospital for your Isis buddies?
        Too bad jens…

        USA has insane asylum in dane village—jens model patient. now entirely cured by CIA standards

  3. Raptar Driver says:

    And there are more jihadists waiting in line behind them.
    This will never end until the source is cut off.

    1. Cromwell says:

      Spot on,supply lines and bases,and we know where they are

      1. Jens Holm says:

        Thats right. Its very visble they are not armed by any but re-use old Syrian leftovers. Its the same for supply and food.

        You are indoctrinated not to accept facts. Those flowers are home grown.

        We saw it yesterday from Al Hol too. Those trying to escape all was Syrians and Iraqis.

        Have You taled with Your TV today:( I see You as an anti solar cell program.

          jens–result of experimental CIA program to train robot and pass as dane/ISIS linguist

        2. @Inc2Get says:

          What the hell are u on about? They use the Al – Tanf base as a cover because the russians won’t strike them there. Many “defecters” of US backed jihadis continously defect to ISIS along with arms.

          1. Jens Holm says:

            They dont.

    2. Jens Holm says:

      The source is You only. You are the reason for extremisme.

      Unless You dont change Your nondevellopment structure, so most people can get a descant life by descent jobs, they will grow up fetrilized by Your selfmade dark and in Your own garden.

      …And dont send them here. We already has Our own ectremists and are doing fine keeping them in low levels. But You grow them.

      Allah must be very mad at You.

      For a start You should try to threat women, LGBTs and Jews better. They also has no decided to be born.

        F…all of them!
        You’re civilization is dead as is your brain.

        1. Jens Holm says:

          So where did Your comment come from ???

          Do You know my car drives 450 km pr hour and only use 1 liter tequila a day. And I never lie.

          Assads use vodka in tyheir tanks, because vodka is not sanctioned by the Americans. As Our neighbors says: Absolute Vodka.

          1. Raptar Driver says:

            That was actually quite funny.
            I think you missed your calling.

  4. Jens Holm says:

    If true not many will blame the Russians for just like that.

  5. Captain Freedom says:

    They need to kill them faster than they are produced. Bombing ISIS in eastern Syria is like cleaning sh!t on a bathroom floor while more shiet continues to spill over non stop from a clogged toilet, which is in this case, al Tanf.

    1. @Inc2Get says:

      Yes, the goal here isn’t to actually defeat ISIS for now but rather quell their forces and keep them from launching attacks against the SAA in the province. Syria would need nearly all of their available forces to clear out the entire desert of ISIS along with air support and UAVS. Such an operation is not possible at the moment.
