Syrian Warplanes Hit ISIS Positions in Badiya Desert

Syrian Warplanes Hit ISIS Positions in Badiya Desert

Alwaght- Syrian fighter jets targeted remnants of the ISIS terrorist group in the central part of the Arab country.

The air raids on Monday targeted terrorists in al-Sukhna, an area between Palmyra and Deir ez-Zor, west of the Euphrates River, Syria’s al-Watan newspaper reported.

The Syrian Air Force mounted “a number of airstrikes targeting ISIS movements in the eastern Badiya, specifically on one of the dirt roads leading to the town of al-Sukhna and southeast of the town”, al-Watan said, citing a military source.

The Syrian army recaptured Sukhna, the last on the desert road to Deir ez-Zor city, from ISIS in 2017 as it pushed the militants back across central Syria in an advance along the crucial desert highway from Palmyra to Deir ez-Zor.

However, some of ISIS terrorists remained in the rugged desert areas around and have carried out attacks on army positions and convoys, according to a Syrian source.

In a separate operation, the Syrian army pounded the positions of the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, in the northwest of the country.

Army troops fired a barrage of missiles at the hideouts and equipment of terrorists on the outskirts of al-Tah village and Khan Shaykun district in the southern countryside of Idlib province.

ISIS lost its territorial rule in 2017 thanks to large-scale army operations, backed by Iran and Russia.

On the eastern bank on the Euphrates, several hundred ISIS militants remain holed up in the village of Baghouz, in Deir ez-Zor, which is currently under siege by militants of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Russia and Syria have opened humanitarian corridors out of Baghouz to facilitate the exit of civilians from the area near Jordan.

The two allies have called on the US to end its military presence in Syria so they could finish the evacuation operation in the last ISIS hideout.
