Russian jets began launching these airstrikes over central Syria at 3:30 A.M (Damascus Time) non-stop until 10 A.M. this morning, then they shifted their attention to the western Palmyra countryside.

According to a military source at the T-4 military Airport in eastern Homs, the Russian jets targeted the ISIS's positions at the gas rich towns of Sukhanah and Arak, resulting in the destruction of several supply vehicles destined for Raqqa.

The Russian Air Force constantly monitors this oil route in central Syria to make sure the ISIS terrorists are unable to transport these reserves to their capital in the northern part of the country, Al-Masdar reports.
