Russian bombers hit militant targets in Syria's Deir al-Zor

Russian bombers hit militant targets in Syria's Deir al-Zor”

"Six long-range Tu-22M3 bombers took off from the territory of Russian Federation that flew over the territory of Iran and Iraq have launched a massive airstrike on the terrorist targets near the city of Abu Kemal in the Deir ez Zor province".

It said the strikes targeted the area around the town of Abu Kamal, one of the few remaining urban strongholds of IS in Syria.

"Militant outposts, ammunition and weaponry stockpiles were the targets of the strikes".

The destruction of all the targets was confirmed by objective control data, it said. Su-30SM fighter jets, scrambled from Russia's Khmeimim Airbase in western Syria, provided cover for the long-range aircraft.

In a statement, Moscow's defence ministry said: "Two strategic bombers Tupolev-95MS of Russia's Aerospace Force have carried out routine flights over global waters of the Sea of Japan and the western part of the Pacific Ocean". Strategic bombers have been used against high-priority targets, such as command centers, or major munitions stockpiles, delivering a heavy load of free-fall bombs or launching high-precision cruise missiles.

The Russian military said the airstrikes destroyed the militants' command posts and ammunition depots.

The airstrike comes just hours after Russia's submarine The Veliki Novgorod, now in the Mediterranean, launched Kalibr cruise missiles towards the ISIS stronghold in Syria.
