ISIS Oil Tanks Destroyed By Syrian Army

Artillery

A series of air strikes conducted by the Syrian army across the country ended with scores of militants dead and various vehicles destroyed, including a caravan of oil tanks, struck in the southern province of Sweida.

The other air strikes were carried out in Hama, Aleppo, and Daraa, with the majority of the attacks taking place in Hama, where rebel groups had made significant territorial gains in a strategically important region that separates the northwestern province of Idlib, controlled by rebel groups, from Damascus and the western part of the country, which is under the control of the Assad government.

August proved to be a pretty productive month for the Syrian armed forces. On August 13, they bombed a fuel convoy in Sweida, destroying at least four tankers. Later in August the Syrian army hit ISIS in oil-rich Homs, to the east of the ancient town of Palmyra that had been destroyed by the terrorist group. The operation resulted in many casualties on the ISIS side.

Oil infrastructure and moving targets have been the focus of operations for all the armed forces active in the fight against ISIS in Syria. Earlier in August, a coalition-forces air strike in Syria destroyed 83 oil tank trucks used by ISIS to transport crude, which is the group’s major source of funding. The U.S.-led operation took place near Syria’s border with Iraq, in the province of Deir Ezzor.

In late July, the Syrian Army retook strategic points along a major oil pipeline in Al-Badia in western Syria from ISIS, after several days of fighting.

Sputnik notes that ISIS has been retreating in the last few days, after the groups’ second-in-command Abu Mohammed al-Adnani was killed earlier this week in another air strike—this time by Russia forces. His death follows the death of another senior ISIS operative, Sami Jassim al-Jabouri, in a joint operation of the U.S. forces in Syria and the Kurdish army.
