    Russia strikes 50 ISIS targets in Syria over 3 days

     
    “The airstrikes were being conducted night and day from the Khmeimim airbase and throughout the whole of Syria. In three days we managed to undermine the terrorists’ material-technical base and significantly reduce their combat potential,” Lieutenant General Andrey Kartapolov, head of the Main Operation Directorate of the General Staff of Russia’s armed forces, said on Saturday.

    “According to Russian intelligence service, the militants are escaping the area that was in their control,” he added.

    “There is panic and defection among them. About 600 mercenaries have left their positions and are trying to reach Europe,” he said.

    “Over the past 24 hours, Sukhoi Su-34 and Su-24M fighter jets have performed 20 sorties and hit nine Islamic State installations,” Igor Konashenkov, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman, reported.
