ISIL’s Bomb-Laden Drones Shot Down by Syrian Army in Deir Ezzur
The army soldiers managed to shoot down 3 bomb-laden drones of ISIL that were flying over Tal Sannouf hill.
The improvised bombs attached to the drones were made of grenades for an anti-tank grenade launcher (most likely RPG-7).
According to the reports coming from Deir Ezzur city, ISIL uses such armed drones more and more often desperately looking for any possibility to penetrate the army’s defense lines.
Syrian Air Force targeted a long convoy of ISIL in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur on Friday, inflicting major damage on the military column on al-Mayadeen-Thayem highway and killing a number of militants, including their commander.
The fighter jets bombed ISIL’s convoy of nine military vehicles that came from Iraq and was carrying a large number of ISIL’s Inghimasi (Suicide) fighters along with their commander, ‘Abou Aisha Marsillia’ – a French national.
Several cars with militants inside them were destroyed while the rest managed to escape the bombing raid making their way to a canyon East of a local power station complex.
Yet, the warplanes targeted the ISIL militants at the station and destroyed all the remaining cars, killing their passengers in process.
According to a Syrian military intelligence source, Abou Aisha Marsillia was killed in the air raid as well.
