Russian Fighter Jets Hit 118 Terrorist Targets in Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian fighter jets have carried out 71 sorties and hit 118 terrorist targets in Syria’s provinces of Idlib, Homs, Hama, Aleppo, Damascus and Lattakia over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

“Russian air group’s aircraft in Syria have conducted 71 sorties and hit 118 terrorist targets in Idlib, Homs, Hama, Aleppo, Damascus and Lattakia in the past 24 hours,” the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman said.

The number of sorties the Russian Aerospace Forces are conducting has grown due the increased number of confirmed intelligence data on terrorist infrastructure in Syria, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

“Russian air group’s aircraft in Syria have conducted 71 sorties and hit 118 terrorist targets in Idlib, Homs, Hama, Aleppo, Damascus and Lattakia in the past 24 hours,” the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman said.

“As you see, the number of sorties has grown due to the increased amount of intelligence data on terrorist infrastructure targets confirmed via various channels.”

Russian Su-24M jets destroyed a terrorist command center with a communication center and a major ammunition depot near Salma in the Lattakia province, he said, adding that unmanned aerial vehicles had uncovered the target.

“As a result of an Su-24M airstrike the object was completely destroyed.”

The Russian Aerospace Forces also hit a Jaysh al-Islam terrorist command center with a communication center in the Damascus province, Konashenkov said, adding that the coordination of militants in the region has been disrupted due to the strike.

The Russian aviation also launched airstrikes on camouflaged terrorist bases in Syria.
