ISIS Cells Attacked Syrian Troops In Southern Raqqa In Response To Russian Airstrikes

On January 21, ISIS cells carried out another attack against Syrian government troops in the southern countryside of Raqqa.


According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the terrorists shot and killed two service members of the Syrian Arab Army in the outskirts of Resafa, one of the largest government-held towns in the southern Raqqa countryside.


The attack took place following a series of Russian airstrikes which targeted ISIS terrorists, hideouts and equipment in southern Raqqa.


“Russian fighter jets executed over 20 airstrikes on the Syrian desert in the past 24 hours,” the SOHR said in a report.


Last year, ISIS cells began carrying out attacks in southern Raqqa after solidifying their presence in the Homs desert in central Syria.


Syrian government forces are operating against ISIS cells in the central region on a daily basis. Currently, a large-scale combing operation to secure the Homs-Deir Ezzor highway, the M20, is ongoing.


More serious measures are needed to address ISIS’ growing threat in the central region. The terrorist group’s cells have begun to launch larger and bolder attacks.
