Six Russian Tu-22M3 strategic bombers have once again carried out a massive strik on ISIS targets in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on November 25.
“As a result, the strike has eliminated terrorists’ strongholds and hardware concentrations near al-Ishara.
The objective control system has confirmed all the targets to have been eliminated.
Having completed the mission, the bomber returned back to the home stations
The Su-30SM and Su-35S fighter jets from Khmeimim air base were covering the bombers,” the ministry’s statement reads.
In November, Russian forces started actively using Tu-22M3 strategic bombers to support the Syrian Arab Army advance against ISIS in eastern Syria. The Russian strikes played an important role in the destruction of the terrorist group’s infrastructure.
