Syrian warplanes raided and destroyed a military convoy of the Daesh terrorist group killing many militants and destroying their vehicles. The terrorists later confirmed their pullback from the key town of Tal Abyadh in the north of the province near the Turkish border as a result of sustained attacks by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Meanwhile, around 250 militants in the country’s southern province of Dara’a surrendered their weapons to the government forces advancing across the country, Fars News reported.

In the recent weeks, the Syrian Army and its allies have been attacking militants’ defense lines and concentration centers across the country.

Adding to the Syrian army’s anti-Daesh effort is the Russian air campaign, which was launched on September 30, 2015, when more than fifty Russian warplanes, including Su-24M, Su-25 and Su-34 jets, commenced precision airstrikes on Daesh targets in Syria at the behest of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

    This is the beginning of the end for Daesh. Oh Daesh will destroy the militants but that the militants are standing up to Daesh is showing that the war of Daesh is coming to and end. It will take some time like a year if the US and it’s flunkies don’t invade to save Daesh but it is showing there are know cracks in the Daesh Empire and more will come as they lose to Russia and Syria and their allies. If Iraq gets it act together like in Syria then it will fall sooner.
