BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – The Syrian and Russian air forces launched over 100 airstrikes above the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Sunday, the Islamic State’s official media wing, Al-‘Amaq, reported last night.

“More than 100 airstrikes conducted by Russian and Syrian warplanes on the town of Deir Hafer and the village of Maskanah and its surrounding area in rural east Aleppo,” Al-‘Amaq claimed on Sunday night.

This claim by Al-‘Amaq confirms earlier reports by Syrian Army activists regarding the large number of airstrikes over east Aleppo on Sunday.

The Syrian Arab Army is currently on the offensive against Islamic State in the Deir Hafer Plain; they are positioned at the outskirts of the town, as they close in on the terrorist stronghold from three different flanks.
