An Islamic State group convoy was incinerated by Russian Forces near the city of Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria, killing over 200 militants.
According to Al-Masdar News, the bombing was part of what many are calling the last stand of the Islamic State group, which has seen strongholds like Raqqa and Mosul decimated by both U.S.-allied and Russian forces.
As the convoy rolled out to help aid in the last stand, 200 of the Islamic State group’s number were sent packing to Allah, courtesy of some fireballs delivered from above.
“Syrian government forces supported by Russian Aerospace Forces are swiftly pushing from three directions towards Deir ez-Zor at the moment. The foothold around the city is the last stronghold of terrorists on Syrian soil,”
Russian Gen. Sergey Rudskoy told reporters on Monday. “The remaining (terrorist) forces are heading there. According to our data, militants from Mosul (in Iraq) moved there and the most battle-ready units from Raqqa.
“The defeat of ISIS in the Deir ez-Zor region will be a strategic defeat for the international terrorist group in the Syrian Arab Republic,” he added.
And, as you can see, any hopes that it wouldn’t end in defeat were dealt a severe blow by the Russian attack:
In addition to the 200 Islamic State group terrorists reported killed, 20 gun trucks and a number of armored military vehicles — including tanks — were destroyed in the strike.
