Early on October 8, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a series of airstrikes on ISIS positions in the western Deir Ezzor countryside.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said more than seven airstrikes had struck the terrorist group’s positions in the outskirt of Faydat al-Muin’a, a desert area located to the west of al-Mayadin city.

“There are cells and hideouts of the Islamic State [ISIS] organization in the area, and attacks are always being carried out against regime forces in the area there,” the monitoring group said in its report.

A few days ago, a wave of Russian airstrikes hit ISIS positions in Deir Ezzor’s desert. At least 30 terrorists, including a field commander known as “Abu Qatada”, were killed. Abu Qatada was allegedly responsible for the August 18 attack, which claimed the lives of a Russian general, a military translator and several Syrian soldiers.

Heavy clashes between ISIS terrorists and Syrian pro-government forces have been ongoing in the central region for a few weeks now.

In most recent episode of the clashes, the terrorists launched a large attack on Syrian military positions in the eastern Homs countryside. Pro-government troops repelled the attack without sustaining any serious losses.

According to a recent report by the SOHR, 49 terrorists and 41 Syrian pro-government fighters were killed as a result of central Syria clashes in the last week only.
