On November 15, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that six Tu-22M3 strategic bombers carried airstrikes on ISIS targets near the  Syrian city of al-Bukamal.

“Fortified areas, manpower and armored vehicles of terrorists have been targeted,” the ministry said, adding that means of reconnaissance had confirmed the destruction of the targets.

According to the Russian and Syrian defense ministries, al-Bukamal should be in hands of pro-government forces and only few ISIS members  remained in the city.

However, according to photos and videos from the area, an intense fighting is still ongoing there. The situation remains unclear.
