They detailed that fighter jets took part in these maneuvers in which the Russian military also employed artillery in an area covering five locations on the northern bank of the Euphrates river near the al-Omar oil camp where the United States maintains one of its largest military bases in Syria.

Such maneuvers could be repeated in Hasakeh and Raqa provinces after Russia reinforced its presence at Qamishli and Tabqa air bases, the sources said.

In parallel, US-backed armed groupings in the east of the country reported that Russian fighter jets flew for the first time over the Tanef region where the Pentagon has its largest base in this Levantine nation on its borders with Iraq and Jordan.

These maneuvers coincided with others conducted by Russian forces from its two air and naval bases on the Syrian Mediterranean coast.
