Russian warplanes carried out seven airstrikes on positions of the Islamic State (IS) militant group in the eastern Syrian province of Deir al-Zour on Thursday, a war monitor reported.

The airstrikes targeted an area in the desert region in the countryside of al-Mayadeen city in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Britain-based watchdog said the IS militants usually launch attacks on Syrian government forces from the targeted area.

A day earlier, two pro-government fighters were killed by the explosion of two landmines in the desert of al-Mayadeen.

According to the Observatory, 822 Syrian soldiers and pro-government fighters as well as 439 IS militants have been killed in the desert battles since March.
