TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian warplanes continued to bomb ISIL’s military machine in Western Raqqa, slowing down the Takfiri terrorists’ logistical movements in the battlefields.
The ISIL defense lines in the Southern side of al-Tabaqa were heavily bombed by the Syrian fighter jets.
The ISIL suffered a heavy death toll and its military hardware, including a large number of trucks and machinegun-equipped vehicles, sustained major damage in the air attacks.
In relevant developments in the province on Thursday, Syrian fighter jets continued to pound ISIL’s positions in Western Raqqa, striking several ISIL sites along the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway.
“The airstrikes by the Syrian Air Force proved highly effective as Syrian Army’s ground forces in Ithriya were given the necessary reprieve from recent ISIL counter-offensives in the Western regions of Raqqa province,” said the military source at Hama Airport.
The Syrian Air Force jets launched surgical air raids on ISIL’s positions in Albu Allaj village as well as the terrorist group’s positions along the Tabaqa-Anbaj and Anbaj-Albu Allaj roads.
A large number of ISIL terrorists, including several foreign combatants, were reportedly killed in the airstrikes.
