Syrian war planes strike ISIL dens in Deir Ezour province
Newscast Media DAMASCUS—Syrian war planes carried out a series of air raids
Tuesday on positions held by ISIL group in eastern Deir Ezour province, state media
“Syrian army forces targeted headquarters and warehouses storing weapons and
ammunition belonging to the terrorist group known as ISIL, destroying them
completely,” Syria’s state news agency SANA reported.
The agency added that the army had also targeted groups of ISIL members, “killing
large numbers of them.”
The opposing UK-based Syrian Observatory said the Syrian army had carried out at
least 12 strikes across the oil-rich province.
“It’s the first time since the ISIL took control of most of Deir Ezour that warplanes
have carried out such intensive and pinpoint raids against ISIL positions in the
region,” Observatory director Rami Abdul Rahman said.
The Syrian army launched Tuesday large-scale operations against terrorists’
gatherings, foiling their infiltration attempts in many areas across the country and
killing scores of terrorists.
