6 Russian air strikes destroy ISIS bomb factory, command centers – Defense Ministry

RT

Russian jets have performed 14 combats flights, conducting six pinpoint airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Syria on Friday, according to Russia’s Defense Ministry.

“During the day, the Russian aviation group continued conducting pinpoint airstrikes against the infrastructure of the IS group in Syria,” Defense Ministry spokesman, Igor Konashenkov, said.  

“Su-34, Su-24-M and Su-25 planes performed 14 flights from Hmaimim air base, during which six airstrikes against IS targets were conducted,” he added.

In the town of Maarrat Al-Nuuman in Idlib province, an Su-25 attack aircraft completely brought down a large terrorist workshop, which was producing bombs and improvised explosive devices.

A nearby IS base, hosting weaponry and military vehicles was also targeted, with ten pieces of military hardware, including several APCs, was eliminated, the ministry said.

A terrorist command center was destroyed by Su-24-M and Su-25 attack aircrafts near the town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib province.

In the Al-Latamna district of Hama Governorate, guided air bombs delivered from Su-34 bombers blew up a militant’s underground HQ, the Defense Ministry said.

Su-25 aircraft also targeted two bunkers in the same area which had been hosting Islamic State command centers and arm depots. According to the ministry, munitions at one of the depots detonated and caused a total destruction of the bunkers.

“The targeting accuracy of the Russian air grouping in Syria was achieved by the usage of aircraft within the reconnaissance-strike complex,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

On Thursday, the Defense Ministry had to address concerns sounded by the Western politicians and media that Russian bombardment actually targeted democratic Syrian opposition forces, instead of IS, and led to civilian casualties.

The ministry stressed that it’s after IS in Syria, adding that all airstrikes are based on accurate intelligence data and take place away from residential areas.

Russian aviation has been carrying out airstrikes against Islamic State and other terrorist groups in Syria since Wednesday.

The operation performed at the request of Syrian President, Bashar Assad, is designed to provide air support to the government troops, which is struggling to contain the spread of jihadist militants in the war-torn country.

As he was explaining Moscow’s decision to get involved in Syria, Vladimir Putin said that radicals from many countries, including Russia, have flocked to Iraq and Syria to join the terrorist group. They must be defeated so that they do not return home with battle experience and ideology adopted in the war zone, the Russian president stressed.

  1. Putin is making a fool out of Obama. By attacking “ISIS” targets, he knows he’s attacking American targets, but Obama can’t admit that without also admitting that the U.S.A. created and funded our latest “enemy”.

    Obama can only respond to these attacks by exposing the big lie, and blowing his whole game plan, so he has to sit back quietly and watch all of his toy soldiers get shot to pieces.

    I think the Zionist news is criticizing Russia for “indiscriminate bombing”, but that’s all they can really do.

    1. You’ve hit the nail squarely on the head. It’s fun watching JewSA officials squirm as they try to maintain a consistent narrative regarding their proxy army.

      “ISIS is a terrorist organization…but wait! No, Putin, we don’t want you bombing them!”

      Russia seems to have tossed a monkey wrench into the PNAC agenda.

      Meanwhile, Obama’s troops bomb hospitals in Afghanistan…

  2. It will come to a point Obummer has to all but admit the US created and funds IS. That will be the kickoff of WW3, if the dumbass doesn’t have the American Nationals overtly gunning for him by then.

    Either way, he’s in a world of hurt…

  3. “The ministry stressed that it’s after IS in Syria, adding that all airstrikes are based on accurate intelligence data and take place away from residential areas.”

    That I can believe.

    Surprisingly, I haven’t heard any more about the Iranian ground troops there. I figured the Mossad/CIA propaganda machine would blow it out of proportion… or blame attacks THEY engineered (on civilians, likely) on the Iranian troops.

  4. Putin has wrestled control of Russia out of the hands of the Jewish Zionist and appears to be working in the interests of the Russian people and peace.

    All governments are nothing more than a master – slave relationship but I will give a lit of credit to Putin for going in the right direction.

    Washington has notified the Russian Defense Ministry that there were only militants in the areas of Russia’s military operation against IS in Syria, Lieutenant General Andrey Kartapolov, head of the Main Operation Directorate of the General Staff of Russia’s armed forces, told reporters on Saturday. “The Americans informed us during contacts that there was no one except terrorists in this region,” he said.

  6. I guess all of this military intervention that has happened the past couple of days is the reason why gas prices in my area went from $1.19 to $2.23 in one day. Amazing…..They oil companies were losing so much money, they needed Russia to bail them out with another major Mid-East battle.

  7. Just remember everyone, this is all a big game and BOTH SIDES ARE CONTROLLED! NEVER think this is “just happening” or that anyone is “making a stand” this was all set up decades ago by someone else and the whole this is scripted from start to finish. ALL and I mean ALLLLLLL sides involved in this are EVIL INCARNATE! People are already being DUPED into thinking Putin is not a “bad guy” or is “doing some good” when THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS ILLUSION!!! QUIT FALLING FOR IT! THEY ARE ALL EVIL! THIS IS SCRIPTED!
