Syria Jets Bomb ISIL (ISIS) Positions near Iraq Border

leave a comment »

TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian fighter jets bombed militant-held Eastern areas close to the border with Iraq under the control of the Al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Five raids killed at least 16 militants and injured dozens more when bombs hit militant-held areas in the town of Muhassan just over 100 km (60 miles) from Iraq, Al-Alam reported.

Syrian fighter jets were seen taking off from the Deir Ezzur military airport to bomb several areas under the control of ISIL and witnesses and activists said areas near the border with Iraq close to the city of Abu Kamal were bombed.

ISIL’s seizure of large amounts of weaponry and money from looted banks in Iraq after its capture of the city of Mosul have emboldened followers in Syria and instilled fear among tribal leaders in the Eastern region, some residents say.

The group’s headquarters were the target of intensive raids by Syrian air forces last week.
