Syria: Deadly bombings by ISIS sees 46 Soldiers killed, including 9 Russians.

(Damascus)  Whilst Syria (with the help of Russia) has turned the tide in its fight for the country as a whole, terrorists groups which held large areas of the country only a few months ago are on the back foot, having lost virtually all their so called caliphate. However a wounded dog is still a very dangerous animal and this was realised this week when  ISIS attacks on Syrian and Russian forces saw 76 soldiers killed this past week. ( I reported 30 killed on Tuesday)

The deadliest was on Wednesday, when IS targeted a group of Syrian and allied Russian fighters near the town of Mayadeen in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor where 35 pro-government forces killed, including at least nine Russians.

And a pair of IS assaults between Saturday night and Sunday morning killed at least 11 pro-regime forces in Deir Ezzor.

Ramadan death toll stands at 451
