ISIS held Jbel Marbat al Hasan and Jbel al-Asafir of Palmyra was heavily bombarded by the Russian helicopters with the ground support by the Syrian Arab Army.
Today, the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 helicopters are bombing on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defensive positions in Palmyra, killing unknown number of terrorists.
According to a twitter report from Gjoene, ISIS held Jbel Marbat al Hasan and Jbel al-Asafir of Palmyra was heavily bombarded by the Russian helicopters with the ground support by the Syrian Arab Army.
For nearly five years, Syria has been observing a deadly conflict it blames on certain foreign states. At least 470,000 people have been killed and millions have been displaced in the Arab country, according to a February report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research. The conflict has also taken a heavy toll on the country’s infrastructure.
Nevertheless, the Arab country is currently observing an agreement for the cessation of hostilities which entered into force on February 27. The agreement stipulates the cessation of all military hostilities in Syria, except for the operations against ISIS terrorist group and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants.
The agreement was negotiated by Russia and the United States. Many suggest that Washington is among the main supporters of terrorists fighting against the Syrian government forces.
