More Russian Airstrikes Hit ISIS Hideouts In Syria’s Central Region

File image. On January 15, more than 12 Russian airstrikes hit Syria’s central region where ISIS cells are still presented and active. According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Russian airstrikes targeted hideout of the terrorists group in the following areas: The outskirts of the town of al-Resafa in the southern countryside of Raqqa; The desert of Deir Ezzor which lays along the governorate’s western countryside. A day earlier, Russian warplanes carried out at least eight airstrikes on hideouts near al-Resafa. The Syrian Arab Army and other pro-government formations also kicked off a combing operation near the town of al-Bukamal in the southern countryside of Deir Ezzor. The pressure mounted by Syrian government forces and their allies have apparently forced ISIS cells to temporary halt their operations. The last two days didn’t witness any attack by the terrorist group. ISIS insurgency in central Syria will not likely end anytime soon. However, the security situation in the region will improve if the current pressure on the terrorist group is maintained.

CIA Oversees Secret Training Program For Ukrainian Special Forces In U.S. – Report

Illustrative Image The U.S. CIA is reportedly overseeing a secret training program for Ukrainian special forces, in an effort to “enhance” their “ability to push back against the Russians.” The US agency has been conducting the secret training program “for elite Ukrainian special operations forces and other intelligence personnel,” Yahoo News reported on January 13, citing five former intelligence and national security officials familiar with the initiative. According to the report the program started at an undisclosed facility in the southern US in 2015. “The United States is training an insurgency,” a former CIA official was quoted as saying. The official said that the program has taught the Ukrainians how “to kill Russians.” “If the Russians invade, those [graduates of the CIA programs] are going to be your militia, your insurgent leaders,” said the former intelligence official. “We’ve been training these guys now for eight years. They’re really good fighters. That’s where the agency’s program could have a serious impact.” “The purpose of the training, and the training that was delivered, was to assist in the collection of intelligence,” said a current senior intelligence official. A former senior intelligence official who maintains ties with colleagues in the government said that

With Russian Air Support, Syrian Army Kicks Off Combing Operation In Deir Ezzor

Illustrative image. On January 14, the Syrian Arab Army backed by pro-government factions, including the National Defense Forces (NDF), kicked off a new combing operation in the southern countryside of Deir Ezzor. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the operation is meant to secure the area of al-Duwair which is located between the towns of al-Mayadin and al-Bukamal. In a report, the London-based monitoring group said that Syrian government forces are searching for “ISIS members who stepped up their activities in al-Badya [the Syrian desert] since the beginning of January.” The new combing operation is backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces, who have been targeting ISIS cell’s hideouts in the deserts of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor. A recent wave of Russian airstrikes, which targeted the outskirts of the town of al-Resafa in the southern Raqqa countryside, killed 11 terrorists and wounded at least 20 others.

Forget ‘Balance’, The Russia VS West Info War Is Hotting Up

Illustrative Image Russian news outlets are striving to provide different viewpoints on issues while the western media churns out anti-Russian propaganda… Written by Johanna Ross, graduate of Russian Studies and political analyst based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The recent tensions between Russia and the West, which have climaxed of late over the conflict in Ukraine and Moscow’s security proposals, have been well documented in the western media. The coverage however, has been far from balanced and in most cases, amounts to nothing less than propaganda. As a journalist I have experience of working in different media organisations, including Russian media.  I know, as do the majority of trained journalists, how important it is to provide the audience with a balanced range of perspectives on a given topic when news reporting: if you invite on a guest with one opinion, you must provide an alternative view also. I’m also aware of the criticism that Russian media organisations such as RT and Sputnik have had hurled their way over the last decade, with blanket accusations of propaganda dominating the western narrative about these news outlets. I have not been exempt from such labelling, having been branded ‘Putin’s propaganda girl’ for simply working at

Russian Airstrikes Kill Or Wound Over 30 ISIS Terrorists In Central Syria

Su-25 aircrafts in Syria. FILE IMAGE: Vadim Grishankin/Russian Defense Ministry Press and Information Office/TASS On January 13, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a new round of airstrikes on ISIS terrorists in Syria’s central region. The airstrikes targeted a number of caves and dens in the deserts of Homs and Deir Ezzor which were being used as hideouts by the terrorists. According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Russian airstrikes claimed the lives of 11 terrorists and wounded at least 20 others. The death toll from the airstrikes may rise as many of the wounded are in a critical condition. The intense airstrikes didn’t deter ISIS terrorists, who later attacked positions of the pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF) near the town of al-Bukamal in the southern countryside of Deir Ezzor. Five NDF fighters were killed and 14 others were wounded in the attack. A day earlier, the terrorists raided a post of the Syrian Air Force Intelligence Directorate near the town of al-Kashmah in the southern Deir Ezzor countryside. Three officers were killed and five others were wounded. ISIS terrorists in central Syria have been receiving heavy blows from Syrian government forces and

Central Syria: ISIS Cells Attack Intelligence Post In Deir Ezzor, Receive Russian Strikes In Raqqa

Illustrative image. On January 12, ISIS cells attacked a post of the Syrian Air Force Intelligence Directorate (AFID) near the town of al-Kashmah in the southern countryside of Deir Ezzor. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, three officers of the AFID were killed and five others were wounded as a result of the attack. The victims were identified by local sources as Fadi Saud al-Satm, Ahmad Nasir al-Hafi and Mahmoud al-Khalef al-Ismail. “The group’s [ISIS] members took advantage of the fog and carried out the attack,” the London-based monitoring group said in its report. Meanwhile in the southern countryside of Raqqa, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out more than 40 airstrikes on ISIS hideouts in the outskirts of the town of al-Resafa. No losses were reported, however. More than 205 Russia airstrikes have reportedly struck ISIS terrorists, equipment and hideouts in central Syria since the beginning of 2022. Despite heavy pressure by Syrian government forces and their allies, ISIS insurgency in the central region is still going strong. Most of the terrorist group’s recent attacks took place in the deserts of Deir Ezzor and Raqqa. The group appears to be moving away from the
