The Russian Air Force is pulverizing the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the western countryside of Palmyra (Tadmur), targeting the aforementioned terrorist group’s positions inside the villages of Al-Dawa, Wadi Al-Dhakara, and Wadi Al-Abyad.

 

According to a senior officer from the Syrian Air Defense, the Russian Air Force conducted over 30 airstrikes over ISIS’ positions in west Palmyra on Friday, destroying several armored vehicles and killing a large number of terrorists in the process.

 

The Russian airstrikes are weakening ISIS’ defenses around Palmyra, which will ultimately help the Syrian Armed Forces in the long run as they prepare to launch the major assault on the city in the coming days.
