Syrian government forces have dispatched reinforcements to the eastern town of Bukamal in Syria's Dayr al-Zawr province to fully purge the city of Daesh terrorists.

The official SANA news agency reported on Thursday that the Syria air force carried out multiple airstrikes against gatherings and supply routes of Daesh terrorists in surroundings of the city of Bukamal in Dayr al-Zawr Province.

Several terrorists were killed in the strikes, according to the report.

Last week, Syrian forces announced that they liberated the town, the last Daesh bastion in the country, but later reports said Daesh militants managed to retake Bukamal in their counter attacks.

Meanwhile, Russian Tupolev Tu-22M3 long-range bombers continue airstrikes against the positions of the Daesh in Bukamal, bombarding fortified areas, manpower, supply depots and armored vehicles of the terrorists.

According to Russia’s Defense Ministry, satellite and drone surveillance confirmed that all of the designated targets had been destroyed.

Backed by their Russian and Iranian allies, Syrian government forces have managed to deal heavy blows to terrorist groups, which have been wreaking havoc on the Arab nation since early 2011.
