On October 6th, the Russian Aerospace Forces launched air strikes on underground ISIS command posts in US-controlled territory in the north of the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor.
It is reported that during the air strikes, one of the shelters housed the field commander Abu Qatada, who was involved in the preparation of a terrorist act against Russian military personnel on August 18th in the “White Desert”, when a Russian general, a military translator and Syrian soldiers were killed.
As a result of a group air strike by a pair of Su-34s, both shelters were destroyed. Approximately 30 militants, including the field commander Abu Qatada, were killed.
There have been no comments from the leadership of the International Anti-Terrorist Coalition explaining why members of the terrorist organization ISIS are freely located in the territory controlled by the United States.
As mentioned earlier, on August 18th in Syria, Russian Major General Vyacheslav Gladkikh and his translator were killed in an attack by ISIS.
He was killed by a land mine explosion near the At-Taym oil field south of Deir ez-Zor, the commander of the National Defense Forces of the Al-Meyadin region, Muhammad Taysar Az-Zahir, with four subordinates, was also killed, and three more soldiers were injured.
A video is available of the incident.
