On November 4, Russian Tu-22M3 strategic bombers once again struck ISIS terrorists near Syria’s al-Bukamal, the last city controlled by the terrorist group in Syria.
According to reports, the strikes were aimed at weapons and ammunition depots as well as command centers belonging to ISIS. This was the fourth day in a row when the strategic bombers hit terrorists in the area. Previously, Tu-22M3 conducted strikes on ISIS on November 1, November 2 and November 3.
