Over 120 IS Militants Killed In Russian Air Strikes In Syria

ISIS was wiped out from most of the territories, except the al-Mayadeen region.

Syria's army and its allies have encircled Daish in the city of Al Mayadin, southeast of Deir Al Zor, in eastern Syria, a Syrian military source said on Sunday as Turkish forces exchanged fire with radicals from Al Qaeda's former Syrian affiliate on the border of Idlib province, a monitor and eyewitnesses said.

It said the attack destroyed the school and a nearby residential building.

A large group of the terrorists were killed and injured during the fight.

We call once again on all those fighting in Syria to show restraint, and to abide by the basic tenets of worldwide humanitarian law."The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitoring group, recorded the killing of 185 people, including 45 children and 46 women between September 29 and October 4 in several attacks, which it attributed to both the Russian and Syrian governments". The ministry said the helicopter was not fired upon.

The defense ministry said in a statement that two Russian submarines, the Veliky Novgorod and the Kolpino, delivered strikes from the Mediterranean Sea by 10 Kalibr cruise missiles on IS sites in the area surrounding Al-Mayadeen.

The Russian military is accusing the United States of turning a blind eye and effectively providing cover to the Islamic State group's operations in an area in Syria that is under USA control.

The Observatory also reported the incident, putting the number of civilians killed at 13.

Many of the IS militants who fled an offensive by US-backed forces against the group's de facto Syrian capital Raqqa have decamped to the towns of Mayadeen and Albu Kamal in the Euphrates Valley.

Syrian troops broke a almost three-year siege on parts of Deir el-Zour last month and are fighting to liberate from IS remaining parts of the city.
