Six Russian Tu-22M3 strategic bombers have delivered airstrikes on ISIS positions in the area of the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor for the 3rd time in a row.


“On January 24, 2017, six long-range Tu-22M3 bombers that took off from a Russian airfield and flew over Iraq and Iran carried out airstrikes on a [terrorist] plant producing ammunition and explosives in Tel al-Salhiya, Daesh’s [ISIS] arms and ammunition depots, as well as areas with Daesh’s hardware in the Deir Ezzor province,” the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday, adding that all targets were destroyed.


The Tu-22M3 strategic bombers took off from an airfield in Russia and flew over the territory of Iraq and Iran to conduct airstrikes.


The six Russsian boombers also delivered airstrikes against ISIS terrorists in the area of Deir Ezzor yesterday and last weekend.
