The Russian fighter jets, in two separated combat sorties, targeted the ISIS concentration centers in different parts of the Northeastern province of Raqqa and inflicted heavy casualties on the terrorists.

The Russian warplanes bombed the ISIS fortified positions near Rabaqa airbase over 10 times, which not only ended in the killing or wounding of tens of the terrorists but destroyed their military hardware in large scale.

In the meantime, the ISIS gatherings in al-Mansoureh district in the ISIS-held city of Raqqa came under at least six sorties of heavy bombardments by the Russian air fleet, which claimed the lives of several terrorists.

Both Russian bombardments of the ISIS sites were carried out at night in order to slow down the terrorist group's tactical and logistic movements at nights.

In relevant development in the province on Thursday, the Syrian warplanes bombed the positions of the ISIS Takfiri terrorists in Tabaqa airbase, killing several militants.

The sources said that the Syrian air force carried out a series of airstrikes against the strongholds of the ISIS in the Southern territories of Raqqa province.

They added that several military vehicles and centers used by terrorists were destroyed and dozens of militants were killed and wounded in the attack, FNA reported.
