Russia Retaliates Against al-Qaeda-Linked Group in Syria”

Russia's Defense Ministry said in a statement early on Tuesday that its airstrikes just outside Deir el-Zour, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, killed more than 304 IS fighters and left more than 200 wounded.

"Of course Moscow is concerned about the fate of these citizens if they are citizens of the Russian Federation", Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is alarmed regarding reports of increased military operations across Syria causing a high number of civilian casualties in recent weeks.

Over the past months Russian Federation has claimed to have killed several top jihadist commanders.

The two men, however, were identified Wednesday by their paramilitary organizations respective.

The second man in the video is "our cossack Novel Zabolotnyï", has affirmed this Wednesday, Lyubov Bondar, the spokesman of the paramilitary Organization of the Russian cossacks, based in Rostov-on-Don (south).

Paramilitary Cossack groups have helped keep order at events like the Sochi Olympics and played a key role fighting for pro-Russian separatist forces in eastern Ukraine. Cossack commanders publicly admitted crossing the border from Russian Federation into eastern Ukraine to help local separatists.

He added that 12 of the group's field commanders were killed, together with around 50 guards.

"The Russian Aerospace Force has destroyed the largest underground arsenal of Jabhat al-Nusra near the community of Abu al-Duhur where terrorists stored more than 1,000 tonnes of ammunition for tube and missile artillery", Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Thursday in a briefing to Russian media as reported by Tass.

He says the strikes took place on Tuesday at an undisclosed location in Syria.

During one of the attacks, about 300 IS militants advanced on dozens of SUVs area to the city of Al-Qaryatain in the central Syrian province of Homs successfully bypassing all the hidden posts of Syrian troops, Konashenkov said.
