Today Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman says Russian aviation launched strikes on underground hideouts, operation centers, home-made weapon production plants, firing positions, artillery, munition warehouses, ammunition and material supplies of the ISIS terrorist group.
“All Russian planes returned to the Hmeimim aerodrome after performing combat missions. Also, I want to emphasize that Russian drones over Syria continue to monitor the situation,” Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.
“Also the Russian Aerospace Force has destroyed a terrorist camp where foreign instructors had trained suicide bombers in the Latakia province, he added.“
“Near Salma [the Latakia province] Su-24M bomber hit a separate building, which housed a base for training terrorists. According to intelligence data, foreign instructors trained ISIL militants there to conduct diversionary war in areas liberated by the Syrian army, as well as trained suicide-bombers.”
Russian combat aircraft have hit and destroyed a command center responsible for terrorist attacks in Syria’s provinces, the Russian general said.
All reconstructed ISIL positions are quickly detected and destroyed, Konashenkov said.
