Russian Su-34 tactical bombers have delivered airstrikes in Syria on Wednesday for a second day in a row, taking off from Hamadan Airbase in western Iran. The assault eliminated at least 150 extremists in Syria’s Deir-ez-Zor province, the MoD reports.

A deployment of Sukhoi Su-34 (NATO reporting name Fullback) strike fighters with full bomb payloads attacked and destroyed installations of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the neighborhood of the city Deir-ez-Zor.

They were covered by Su-35s fighter jets which took off from Russia’s Khmeimim Airbase in Syria. The warplanes used fragmentation demolition OFAB-500 air bombs to eliminate two command posts and two large terrorist field training camps.

“Over 150 militants have been eliminated, among them foreign mercenaries,” the ministry said in a press statement.

All Russian military aircraft have successfully returned to airfields in Iran and Syria. The first Russian assault from Hamadan Airfield was delivered against terrorist installations in Syria on Tuesday, July 16.
