Sun Apr 10, 2016 19:02:57

The Syrian fighter jets, tipped off by the army's intelligence agent, traced and targeted the ISIL terrorists' hideouts and command centers inside the terrorist-held city of Raqqa, leaving several ISIL commanders dead or wounded.

The Syrian air fleets' attacks on the ISIL command centers in al-Badou neighborhood near the Municipality's Sports Stadium, Teachers Housing and Down Town area claimed the lives of several ISIL commanders and their accompanying guards. 

In the meantime, the ISIL hideouts and bases in the Northern side of Raqqa near the city's general hospital came under the heavy bombardments of the Syrian Army's aircraft.

Tens of the ISIL members were killed or wounded in the airstrikes.

The ISIL's military equipment also sustained major damage in the air raids.

Reports said earlier today that the Russian fighter jets, in two separated combat sorties, targeted the ISIL concentration centers in different parts of the Northeastern province of Raqqa and inflicted heavy casualties on the terrorists.

The Russian warplanes bombed the ISIL fortified positions near Tabaqa 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 ISIL gatherings in al-Mansoureh district in the ISIL-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 ISIL sites were carried out at night in order to slow down the terrorist group's tactical and logistic movements at nights, FNA reported.
