Russian Air Force carries out 2687 airstrikes against ISIS over the past two weeks
Russian Defense Ministry said that the Russian Aerospace carried out 2687 strikes on ISIS sites in Syria over the past two weeks.

The ministry said in a statement published on its website Wednesday that the Russian warplanes directed 1,417 sorties with a total of 2,687 strikes against ISIS sites, adding that the Russian aircrafts are carrying out rocket and bomb strikes against facilities of ISIS around the clock to provide support to the Syrian Army.

It affirmed that during the restoration of Uqayribat town in the eastern countryside of Hama, the troops, supported by the air force, destroyed 5 car bombs for ISIS and killed 25 gunmen with suicide belts in the area daily.

The ministry said that the military operation against ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations in Syria will continue until destroying them completely.

In the same context, the commander of Russia’s military group in Syria Colonel-General Sergey Surovikin said in order to secure the units of the Syrian Arab Army, Russian air force carries out round-the-clock rocket and bomb attacks on ISIS positions, adding that in the final phase of the operation the intensity of air raids increased to 100 sorties a day and more.

He added that the main force of the ISIS terrorists who came from the Iraqi city of Mosul, Raqqa and other areas were cordoned off in the vicinity of Deir Ezzor and the elimination of the last main stronghold of the terrorists in Syria is being completed.

Surovikin pointed out that units of Syrian Army worked to disperse the terrorist groups of ISIS and were able to mislead them in relation to the direction of the attack of the main force, noting that ISIS used about 50 car bombs with suicide bombers, and the Syrian forces were able to destroy most of them.
