Russian warplanes have destroyed 4 battle tanks, 3 armored personnel carriers (APCs), 14 vehicles equipped with weapons and 2 rocket launchers belonging to ISIS in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor over the past 24 hours, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
Furthermore, 59 ISIS members were killed by airstrikes.
In total, the Russian Aerospace Forces conducted 182 airstrikes on ISIS targets in the province.
Spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry Major General Igor Konashenkov said that last night Russian forces detected a fortified ISIS stronghold near Mayadin city on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.
“The facility included a stockpile of artillery and tank ammunition and a large network of underground tunnels accommodating a large group of terrorists – natives of Asian republics of the CIS and Algeria,” he said.
Russian warplanes conducted a series of airstrikes on ISIS targets there causing losses suffered by the terrorist group.
Earlier today, the Russian Defense Ministry released videos showing airstrikes on ISIS targets in Deir Ezzor province. The bombed terrorists allegedly entered Syria from Iraq because the US-led coalition likely ingored their movements, according to the ministry.
