Russian bombers hit major Daesh arms depots in Syria after entering from Iran

Five major arms depots destroyed by Russia’s Tu-22M3 and Su-34 were used to supply Daesh militants near Aleppo, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

Russia’s Ministry of Defense confirmed Tuesday that it had deployed Tu-22M3 bombers and Su-34 strike fighters in Iran and these have already carried out airstrikes against terrorists in Syria.

“On August 16, 2016, Tu-23M3 long-range bombers and Su-34 bombers, having taken off from their base in Hamadan [Islamic Republic of Iran], carried out group airstrikes against targets belonging to Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groups in the provinces of Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor and Idlib,” the ministry said in a statement.

Russian bombers also destroyed three militant command points and training camps in Syria’s Serakab, Al-Bab, Aleppo and Deir Ez-Zor, killing “a significant number” of militants, according to the ministry.
