At least 26 Syrian regime troops and four Russian fighters were killed in a Daesh (ISIS) attack earlier this week in Syria's eastern desert, an activist group and the Russian military said Sunday.Some of those Russian nationals were government troops, but not all of them," Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.The remaining 26 were all Syrian troops, he told AFP. Russian and Syrian troops and pro-regime gunmen have been fighting members of Daesh in the eastern province after the extremists resumed their attacks against government forces and their allies in recent weeks.The Russian statement came two days after Daesh said its fighters launched a surprise attack Wednesday from two axes on a joint Syrian and Russian convoy west of the town of Mayadin, killing 15 Syrian and Russian soldiers.In the same area, Daesh also said they stormed three Syrian army checkpoints killing eight soldiers and capturing five others.
