MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. Russian air group in Syria has destroyed an Osa air defense system the terrorists had captured from the government army earlier, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov has told the media.

According to the official, the Russian group learned from the information exchange centre in Baghdad that the Osa system, captured from the Syrian army, had been moved to an area near Damascus. After that intelligence identified the camouflaged ferroconcrete shelter housing the complex.

"A Sukhoi-34 bomber was used to attack the target. A direct strike with a BETAB-500 air bomb eliminated the shelter and the equipment inside," Konashenkov said.
