The Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen.

80 more terrorists including nine from North Caucasus were killed at the vicinity of al-Mayadeen city, in addition to destroying 18 vehicles equipped with heavy machineguns and three ammunition caches, according to Konashenkov.

The Russian military source clarified that more than 60 ISIS terrorists from the CIS countries, Tunisia and Egypt were killed in a Russian airstrike on the valley of the Euphrates River southern Deir Ezzor, in addition to destroying 12 vehicles equipped with heavy machineguns.
