The US aimed to extend the geographical area of its influence by bombing the strategic bridges in Deir Ezzor and stop the Syrian army’s advance in the war against the ISIS.
Washington also sought to cut the supply routes between the provinces and separate Deir Ezzor’s countryside from the city of Deir Ezzor through the bombing.
Destruction of Deir Ezzor bridges was also aimed at dividing the regions under the US and Russian influence in the Eastern and Western parts of the Euphrates.
The US-led coalition fighter jets once again conducted air raids over Deir Ezzor province on Friday, destroying two other key bridges over the Euphrates River, just three days after demolishing two other strategic bridges in similar airstrikes in the same region near the border with Iraq.
According to reports, the Coalition’s airstrikes resulted in the destruction of al-Shihan Bridge near al-Salhin neighborhood in al-Bokamal countryside and Tarif Bridge in the Western countryside that extends between Deir Ezzor and Raqqa provinces.
The US-led coalition warplanes had also destroyed al-Asharah Bridge that links the two banks of the river in the Eastern part of the Deir Ezzor province on Wednesday, only few hours after demolishing al-Mayadin Bridge.
