LATAKIA, November 13. /TASS/. Russian aviation in Syria made 107 sorties on November 11-12 and attacked 289 targets, Russian Defense Ministry’s official spokesman Igor Konashenkov told a press briefing for Russian reporters at the Hmeymim airbase on Friday.
"Over the last two days, November 11-12, Russian Aerospace Defense Forces’ jets made 107 sorties in the Syrian Arab Republic, and attacked 289 targets in the provinces of Aleppo, Damascus, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, Daraa, Homs and Deir ez-Zor," Konashenkov said.
"The airstrikes have destroyed: 34 command and control posts of gangs; 16 ammunition and fuel depots; two plants for the production of ammunition and improvised explosive devices; three camps and terrorist training bases; 50 strong points with military equipment and weapons; 184 fortified areas and defence positions," he added.
According to Defense Ministry spokesman, a Su-34 bomber destroyed an IS ammunition depot in the vicinity of the Jasim village, Daraa province. As a result of a direct hit by the BETAB-500 air bomb, the detonation of explosives began at the facility, which led to its complete destruction.
Moreover, a Su-24M Russian bomber destroyed the Islamic State’s fortifications, three mortar crews and a field ammunition depot in Syria’s Homs province as it hit a militant stronghold.
"A Su-24M bomber delivered an air strike at an ISIS (the former name for IS) militant stronghold…in Homs province. The terrorists’ engineering fortifications, three mortar crews and a field ammunition depot were destroyed by direct hit," he said.
