Missiles warplanes & robots Russian weaponry in Syrian military campaign

Al-Qaida-linked fighters have been gaining more influence in the northwestern province of Idlib and northern parts of Hama province where they have launched attacks on rival militant groups, as well as areas controlled by the government.

The Syrian military shelled al-Mayadin overnight and Syrian and Russian warplanes have conducted hundreds of strikes, it said.

Syria's official SANA news agency reported Thursday that army units had engaged Daesh terrorists on the al-Mayadin-Day al-Zawr road and the surrounding areas, inflicting heavy losses on the militants and their military equipment.

Syrian government forces entered the town of Mayadeen in the Eastern province of Deir ez-Zor, which still was under the full control of insurgents "Islamic state".

Hezbollah, part of the military alliance supporting President Bashar al-Assad, said this week a senior commander had been killed in an Islamic State attack in Syria's central desert.

Meanwhile, activists said the IS is calling for backup to fend off the army offensive on Mayadeen.

The Observatory said al-Qaida fighters captured several areas in the village on Friday.

In other developments, Russia's military said one of its helicopters had made an emergency landing in Syria but that its crew was unhurt. The ministry said the helicopter was not fired upon. However, no information has been received about any U.S. operations against the Islamic State during the six months of its existence.

The Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said that in the last 24 hours, Russian Aerospace forces in Syria were focused on destroying Daesh reinforcements with a large number of foreign mercenaries arriving from Iraq to the region of Abu Kamal along the Syrian-Iraqi border.

Assad and his allies in Moscow and Tehran have now turned their attention to the eastern Syrian cities of Mayadeen and Deir Ezzor in a bid to remove ISIS from the territory that the group has held since its rise in mid-2014.

The Russian accusations likely reflect rising tensions as US -backed Syrian forces and the Russian-backed Syrian army — both of which are battling IS — race for control of oil and gas-rich areas of eastern Syria.
