According to a report by Russia Ministry of Defense (Mod), six Tupolev Tu-22M3 strategic bombers have delivered massive air assaults against a major Islamic State camp and ammunition depots in central Syria.
The bombers were based at one of Russian’s southern air bases. The bomber passed through Iranian and Iraqi airspace to deliver concentrated high-explosive ammunition sorties against ISIS targets east of towns of Palmyra and As Sukhnah, and the village of Arak before safely returning to home base after the operation.
The Russian military stated that the information on the eliminated targets was acquired over the last several days and confirmed through several intelligence leads.
“The strike resulted in the destruction of a large militant field camp, three depots of arms and munitions, three tanks, four infantry combat vehicles and eight vehicles fitted with heavy machine guns, also neutralizing a large number of enemy fighters,” the ministry said in a statement.
