ISIS Fighters Killed by Russian Forces in Syria's Deir Az Zor

ISIS Fighters Killed by Russian Forces in Syria's Deir Az Zor

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

In another air strike, more than 60 mercenaries from the former Soviet Union, Tunisia, and Egypt were killed in the Euphrates Valley south of Deir Ezzor, according to AFP.

"According to information received via several channels and confirmed "on the ground", influential Daesh field commanders, natives of the North Caucasus: Abu Omar al-Shishani, Alyauddin Al-Shishani and Salahuddin al-Shishani, who were hiding in Iraq for a long time, were destroyed", Konashenkov said.

Violence in eastern Syria has escalated significantly in recent weeks as Syrian troops with the help of Russian air cover are closing in on Mayadeen, a new Islamic State group stronghold after IS came under attacks in the cities of Raqqa and Deir el-Zour.

The ministry also said that "large numbers of foreign mercenaries" coming into al-Bukamal from neighboring Iraq were killed in a Russian air raid.

The ministry added that the nine terrorists killed were from the North Caucasus region.The strikes were carried after Russian military intelligence in Syria within a week revealed areas of their concentration and command posts near the city of Abu Kamal, as well as routes to the city of Al Mayadin and further to the southern outskirts of the left-bank part of the city of Deir ez-Zor.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Russian air strikes on Thursday night killed 14 people, including three children, fleeing across the Euphrates on rafts near Mayadeen.

The village of Abu Dali had been spared much of the violence and had functioned as a local business hub between rebel-run areas and those under President Bashar Assad's forces.

IS remains in control of half of Deir Ezzor province, despite regime advances and a separate offensive against the jihadists by a US-backed Kurdish-Arab alliance.

The observatory said on Friday there were clashes in several areas in eastern Deir Ezzor province.

"The incident occurred while the Mi-28 was escorting another helicopter, a Mi-8, carrying personnel of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Conflicting Parties", the Defense Ministry said.
