MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Tupolev Tu-95MS long-range strategic bombers have attacked the Islamic State’s facilities near the Syrian city of Raqqa with the H-101 cruise missiles, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Friday.
"On February 17, 2017, the Tu-95MS strategic bombers, flying from the Russian territory through the airspace of Iran and Iraq, attacked the ISIL (former name of the Islamic State terror group outlawed in Russia) facilities near the Syrian city of Raqqa with the H-101 cruise missiles. The targets included militant camps and training centers as well as a command center of one of the major ISIL units," the statement reads.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, all targets were destroyed. The bombers were covered by the Russian Sukhoi Su-30SM and Su-35S fighters scrambled from the Hmeimin air base.
