Syria’s army has been striking for 24 hours major bases of the jihadist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in coordination with Baghdad’s government, Agence France-Presse reported a monitor as saying Sunday.
The strikes against ISIS - which have spearheaded a week-long jihadist offensive in Iraq - have been more intense than ever, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
“The regime air force has been pounding ISIS’s bases, including those in the northern province of Raqqa and Hasakeh in the northeast,” which borders Iraq, said the Britain-based group.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime was responding to the fact that ISIS “brought into Syria heavy weapons including tanks” captured from the Iraqi army, the monitor added.
