The Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) carried out more than 1,380 airstrikes on ISIS cells in central Syria over the last 30 days, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on March 30.
According to the London-based monitoring group, the majority of the VKS airstrikes targeted the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle.
“SOHR activists documented the death of 57 ISIS members and the injury of 25 others due to over 1,380 Russian airstrikes on their positions in the Syrian desert,” the SOHR’s report reads.
The VKS operations against ISIS are still ongoing. On March 31, Russian warplanes carried out at least 15 airstrikes on the terrorist group’s cells in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle.
The Russian aerial attacks are meant to support Syrian government forces, which are carrying out a series of combing operations in different parts of the central region.
In the last three days, 100 Syrian service members were wounded in attacks by ISIS or by explosive devices planted by the terrorist group, according to the SOHR. Most of the injures are moderate.
The situation in central Syria is currently under control. All main roads are open for traffic, gas and oil fields are tightly guarded and urban centers are secured.
