Russian Federation strikes kill 120 Daesh militants

Russian Federation strikes kill 120 Daesh militants

Earlier this week, Russia's military claimed the leader of the al-Qaida-linked group was wounded in a Russian airstrike and had fallen into a coma.

In June, two USA intelligence officials told Reuters that they believed Islamic State had moved most of its diminished command structure and propaganda team to Mayadeen, southeast of its former capital of Raqqa.

The report also suggested that Syrian government troops, backed by Russian warplanes, are now near the al-Mayadeen Market and Grain Silos.

Syria's official SANA news agency reported Thursday that army units had engaged Daesh terrorists on the al-Mayadin-Day al-Zawr road and the surrounding areas, inflicting heavy losses on the militants and their military equipment.

The Syrian army and allied forces have reportedly closed in on the eastern city of al-Mayadin, which is viewed as the current main stronghold of the Daesh terrorist group in the Arab country.

Hezbollah, part of the military alliance supporting President Bashar al-Assad, said this week a senior commander had been killed in an Islamic State attack in Syria's central desert. Both the Observatory and DeirEzzor 24 also reported that an airstrike hit the village of Mehkan, just south of Mayadeen, and said it killed several families. In the small hours of September 28, about 300 IS gunmen moved from the areas close to the inhabited community of Rukban to the city of Al-Qaryatayn in the Homs province using dozens of off-road vehicles.

Syrian troops have broken a almost three-year siege on parts of Deir el-Zour last month and are fighting to liberate from IS remaining parts of the city.

"As follows from the crew's report and the examination of the aircraft, there had been no fire attack", the Defense Ministry stated.
